Dominick's Mom-to-Mom Kiddie-Up's Training Pants and $25 Gift Card GIVEAWAY

I have challenged and triumphed over potty training my now 4 year old boy. I'd love to say it went perfectly, but it didn't. It took him awhile longer to warm up to the idea than I would have liked, but once he was on board, it took less than a week, and diapers were history.

That 4 year old boy now has a little 2 year old sister, who would probably love to be potty-trained, but I will be honest, this mommy is just not ready yet. 

Shoe = other foot

Lily has always been a bit chubbier than the normal baby her age, so fitting her into clothing (and diapers) has always posed quite a problem. While all you mommy's out there, with "Average" sized baby girls were buying cute little matching outfits, denim skirts/jeans and 2 piece ensembles that fit like a glove; I was busy getting sweatpants and knit leggings tailored, or looking for anything cute that DID not come as a two-piece set. Lily's thighs, belly and bottom were so chubby, she couldn't (and still to this day) wear a pair of jeans or khakis. All of her clothes must s-t-r-e-t-c-h. And so do her diapers.

So once Lily got off of drinking a bottle, and was therefore not filling up her diapers so quickly, I switched her out of size 6 (yes....yes....size SIX) diapers, and into training pants. Or at least, I tried to. They are easier to get on/off of her (this little lady has been independent since day 1) and aren't nearly as binding in the belly and thighs as a traditional size 6 diaper are (did you know it is near impossible to find a diaper BIGGER than a size 6?! You'd think I'd get the hint and just potty train her already, huh?). The only downside, is most training pants aren't as absorbent as a traditional diaper. I tried a few brands, and never found one I liked....whether it was the fit or the absorbency, none seemed to work.

Luckily, Dominick's has re-released their "mom-to-mom" line of diapers and training pants (called Kiddie-Up's), and these training pants really do the job that those other trainers just couldn't.
We tried out the 4T/5T on Lily and they fit perfectly. There is just the right amount of coverage across the back, they are snug, but not too snug, and loose, but not too loose. They don't cut into her skin, and did I mention, cute as can be?

Plus, who can resist a Princess training pant?

I think one extremely essential perk a training pant MUST HAVE is the velcro side closures. We all know, as much as we would like to keep those major accidents from happening, they still so! So being able to change a training pant the ol' fashioned way is still very important!

Kiddie-Up's are made of the softest materials I have ever felt in a disposable training pant. They have a hypoallergenic liner made with aloe, vitamin E, and organic botanicals and Lily's skin has not broke out ONCE since we started using these. That alone, no matter what the other advantages are, make this diaper worth while.

WIN IT! A $25 DOMINICK'S GIFT CARD!
