OUR THOUGHTS ON PULL UP PANTS [ BY NATY]

When I first heard about pull up pants, I totally associated them with potty training. Well, I was wrong. Pull up pants are actually one seriously cool invention when it comes to keeping our little ones’ happy, and keeping us parent’s sane.

Changing table terrors – does this sound familiar at all? Boy oh boy, this is a serious game changer (or nappy changer – whichever way you look at it) when it comes to changing our little one. Changing a wriggly worm can quickly turn into serious moments of fear, more so, when  you have a dirty diaper on your hands – literally!

In general, we use Natys eco friendly nappies for Harps, but when I heard about their range of pull up pants, we of course had to give them a go.

The sizing is fantastic, for a snug fit. Very often, because of my little wriggly worm, I sometimes find that I don’t fasten Harper’s nappy as tight as it should be. Sometimes it can be quite a challenge when your child has her legs squirming left, right and centre, arms flapping and squeaking like a baby dolphin in every effort to escape from the person who is so willingly attempting to give her a cleaner bottom. For this reason, pull ups really do come in handy. You can pretty much pull up and go (as you would with panties) off of the changing mat, letting your bub stand/ lean on you while pulling them up from their ankles.

All the stretchiness in the world.

We have had no leaks while using the pull up pants, as they are the perfect little fit. The waist band is also super stretchy and comfy, and doesn’t leave any red marks along Harper’s tummy. There’s nothing worse than little red lines when a nappy has been put on too tight.

We have found ourselves in a bit of a pickle a few times with changing a dirty pull up nappy. At first, it seemed like a real scientific affair, trying to suss out how to get Harper’s pants off, without getting the contents of her nappy everywhere. We find that snipping the area where the clasps would go on a normal nappy, with scissors seems to be working well.

We really love alternating between pull ups and nappies and they both offer their own unique qualities when it comes to keeping our bub dry, fresh and happy. Pull ups are fabulous for evenings and throughout the night.

The cute little patterns make them even more adorable and are 100% breathable, which helps prevent nappy rash. My favourite part about these is that they are of course eco friendly and biodegradable which leaves our hearts super happy, along with Harper’s bottom.

If your baby is between 8kg – 16kg, then these are perfect to try. These pull ups also have a non bulky fit, are chlorine and perfume free, and have a compostable corn based film which is what helps prevent leakage.

You can find these online for £7.49 for 18 pull ups. These really are a great investment for our planet and our children.

Best friends in their pull ups!

WHAT’S IN OUR BABY BAG?

Have you ever wondered how and why the tiniest little human takes up the most luggage and space? In the car, in the house, everywhere!

Seriously, sometimes it feels like you need an entire task force just to get baby, and all the things that they need into the car. And believe it or not, that’s JUST to get to the shops, never mind a day out around Town, or a holiday away.

Our amazing Naty baby bag – so spacious, heavy duty renewable material and SO user friendly! Love the quality about this delicious bag!

Here are our ESSENTIALS:

  • A change of clothes and a warm jersey– you never know when you might need them.
  • Bottles, bottles and MORE bottles. Trust me when I say that it’s always best to take spare bottles. Our car randomly broke down, and boy am I glad that we had bottles with water! Phew – happy baby means happy parents! We are currently using Dr Brown’s bottles.
  • Pre-measured formula – we use our formula stacker. Parenting hack 101!
  • A burping towel – what a lovely little friend this is!
  • A spare dummy – no explanations needed with this one.
  • Teething gel (Harper is teething at the moment. We are using a natural non-medicated gel at the moment from Pure Beginnings – marshmallow and liquorice flavour. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t stolen some before!
  • Nappies – We have gone green, using Naty Nappies which are super friendly and bio based.
  • Wet wipes – I could not highlight this more. Nappy changes, dirty faces, dirty paws, messy tables – you name it, and it can probably be wiped clean. We are using Naty unscented sensitive wipes. They’re amazing and are kind to our planet.
  • Nappy bags – Yes, at first I hated using these as majority of them are made out of plastic and to be honest, I kind of gave this a skip until we discovered Naty biodegradable and compostable nappy sacks. These have saved so many situations where there haven’t been any bins in the bathroom.
  • Nappy cream – Yes, yes and YES again. There’s no better feeling than knowing your baby has a fresh, clean bottom. There’s nothing worse than nappy rash too, and for this, we use the Naty Rash Cream which is all natural, forms a thick barrier and of course is the green choice for a happy planet.
  • Toys – I can’t decide which is more of an essential – nappies or toys. These two saves lives! Spare toys always help anti-tantrums out in public.
  • Baby change mat – Oh, but of course. It’s always great to have your own changing mat, knowing that only your baby’s bum has been on the mat.
  • A spare blanket – There’s nothing better than being the warmest and cuddliest little thing around. You never know when you might need it.
  • Nasal spray – We always keep this in Harpers bag. Different places that we might go could have different air, which has sometimes left our little girl congested. We use Sterimar Nasal Spray – it works instantly!

And that’s it. Such a little human but so many things.

P.S I totally sneak my own things in bubi’s bag. My purse, lipstick, concealer and phone fit comfortably in our Naty baby bag! We love how spacious and user friendly it is.

Happy traveling with your little one and all their things in the BIGGEST bag in the car!

Until next time,
