Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers and Natural Care Wipes Through Target Subscription Program #MC #Sponsored

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Huggies and Target. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

When it comes to diapers I admit I have always chosen them based on cost, so some brands work out better for my budget than others. We tried Huggies when my eldest was a preemie, but we moved away from them for a cheaper option. When my younger daughter was born I received a few boxes of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers, and they seemed to work best on her sensitive skin. When I ran out of those diapers I opted to put her in a cheaper brand even though I loved the Huggies.

Now I have a solution to the budget woes. I was recently introduced to Target’s new Subscription Program that allows you to automatically restock the items you use on a regular basis.

Target's Subscription Program
Items are delivered directly to your door on an automatic schedule that you set. You receive 5% off all orders plus free shipping! REDcard holders can save an additional 5% for a total of 10% off each order! Savings like that means I can afford to buy the diapers I want instead of settling for the ones that I don’t like so much! The Target Subscription Program also means I can stay well stocked on diapers and wipes as well as other things we use on a daily basis ensuring I never have to run out in the middle of the night because I forgot to pick them up!

A few days ago I took the plunge and headed to Target to give Huggies Snug & Dry diapers another try before committing to a subscription. I was very happy to see that Target was well stocked with boxes of each size of Huggies Snug & Dry diapers.

Even though the nearest Target is 45 minutes away I’ll often go there when we visit my in-laws who live close to the store because stores in my area always seem to be completely out of the one size of diaper I need.

I picked up a box of Snug & Dry as well as a box of the Huggies Natural Care Wipes that I already use and love.

The Natural Care wipes are so much softer and much more gentle on my daughter’s skin. They are hypoallergenic, fragrance free, alcohol free, and contain both Aloe and Vitamin E, so I love them. My husband likes to use them when detailing his motorcycle to get into those hard to reach spots and to remove grime from his tools when he’s turning wrenches on one of our vehicles. I personally use tons of Natural Care wipes for all sorts of other things from taking off my eye makeup to cleaning crayon off the walls and spills on the counter to using them to scrub hard to reach spots around my faucets!

After almost a week of using the much coveted Natural Care Wipes along with the Snug & Dry diapers I have noticed a few things.

  • The Snug & Dry diapers feature a SureFit* design that “moves with your little ones smooth skin” and provides up to 12 hours of protection. Other diapers always leave chafing and red marks on the inside of my daughter’s chunky thighs and at the top where her diaper rubs her back, but with the Huggies she has not experienced any redness!
  • The Snug & Dry diapers have also worked well to keep everything contained at night. My daughter doesn’t normally soak a diaper at night, but she has been known to leak out of other brands. So far she hasn’t leaked out of the Snug & Dry diapers at night at all.
  • Unfortunately the Snug & Dry diapers haven’t contained everything. My daughter has been battling a stomach virus over the last 12 hours, and she has had some very runny blowouts from the inside of her thighs causing it to run down her legs. “Normal poops” were contained just fine, and I can’t say I have ever met a diaper that could contain the results of the virus we’ve been dealing with!
  • The Natural Care wipes are so gentle on my baby girl’s skin she doesn’t have any redness from constantly cleaning up those viral poop diapers! Plus the wipes are nice and thick, so I don’t have to use nearly as many as I would with the cheaper brands.

So, as you can see I do believe Huggies Snug & Dry diapers have found a place in our household. I will be placing my first order through the Target Subscription Program as soon as I reload my debit REDcard so I can take advantage of the 10% savings before I find myself running out of diapers. Meanwhile my little one will continue to nap and sleep soundly in her Snug & Dry diapers without a care in the world.

LazePad iPad Stand Review

Ever use your iPad cover to prop up your device in bed? When I do that, the cover’s seams starts to fall apart and the iPad slips down. Really annoying. But there’s a new item to make it easy to use your iPad while lying down and sitting comfortably.

The LazePad, provided for review, is an iPad stand that allows you to use your iPad while lying in bed, thus the name. I was skeptical when asked to review it, but it turned out to be incredibly useful and is now the only iPad case I use at home. Its lightweight, triangular design has two functional sides: on one, there is a track to slide the iPad in, which holds it securely in place; the other just has a ledge that you can sit the iPad on.

Each side is set up so that you can rotate it for optimal viewing while lying down and resting it on your chest, sitting with it on your legs, or placing it on the table. The LazePad’s hollow interior makes it easy to carry around; you just slip your arm through the triangle to hold it up.

It’s great for binge watching Netflix in bed and displaying recipes while I cook in the kitchen. I’m really impressed with how well it works for FaceTime. I’ve previously found it a real challenge to find the ideal FaceTime configuration. The cases I’ve used before were always angled too high. Even when I did manage to prop it up, my one-year-old would inevitably knock it down.

I felt confident with the protection the LazePad provides. “It’s made with ultra density technology, soft rubber but hard enough to support your iPad®.” It comes in three colors – pink, blue and black and is compatible with iPad 2/3 and the new iPad (not iPad air). The blue looks great!

There are only two downsides: due to the design, you have to remove the iPad from the stand to adjust the volume and it’s also too bulky and awkward to take to the office or on a trip. But for at home use, the LazePad is a huge improvement.

The LazePad works for children and adults. Shop from their website for $54.99 plus shipping and you can pay with PayPal. You can get a $5 discount by sharing on Twitter, Facebook G+ or following on Twitter (@LazePad). You can also purchase it from Amazon.  Remember the countdown to the holidays is on!
