PSA from someone who may be changing your baby's diaper

For the love of all that is good, if you are going to send your child to daycare/child care at the gym/church nursery, etc... Please refrain from the hype of a new dangled diaper and avoid the Huggies slip in diapers.

I work the church nursery 2 times a month. I get to love on, read stories to and play with 15-18 playful, active and sometimes fussy one year olds. When diaper changing time rolls around and 10-12 of those sweeties are wearing pull on diapers, I have to completely remove the shoes and pants of said child, change diaper and then completely redress your munchkin...and stuffing those sweet, chubby toddler feet back into their Sunday shoes isn't fun. And it takes diaper changing FOREVER.

Stick to the tabs, mamas!!

I don't know if you realise this but if you pull on the corners of the pull-on where it connects it will come apart in the same way that a regular diaper does.

My 8mo is making diaper changes difficult. Even the tab ones is a fight. It takes like 10 minutes to get the diaper on. Maybe wiggle free babies should come on the market.

You do know that pull ups actually do come apart on the sides right?  They will go on just like a diaper.

Yes. But I've noticed if you pull that apart and try to stick it back tiger her again, it doesn't stick as well. It's putting the diaper back ON that's the issue.

I never used those. I felt like it would confuse the kids into thinking it was ok to go in undies since they "look and feel like real underwear" I especially hate when parents call them underwear.
