When I packed my bag that I’ll bring to the hospital when I gave birth, I didn’t bother buying a newborn diaper because Daryl’s mom had 4 huge packs of disposable diaper for James. I was expecting that James will not fit on newborn diapers kasi ang daming nagsasabi sakin na malamang malaki daw si James. As soon as I gave birth, the hospital never asked for baby stiffs unlike what I was told na kelangan ko maghanda ng mga gamit nya. Probably because it was a private hospital so I really don’t have to make an effort on baby’s first kit. Even so, I was prepared for it. We took home the left over things that they used for James din naman so sulit na lang din ang binayad ko dun. I had some EQ Dry Newborn diapers, 400g of Nan Pro 1 (that’s what his pedia gave him kasi I was not able to breastfed on the first 3 days in the hospital) etc.

James has been using EQ Diaper na. I liked it so much kasi. He was hiyang sa diaper that he never had any rashes on it. At the same time, it has a breathable cloth like cover kaya hindi sya mainit sa pakiramdam lalo na ngayon tag init pa naman! It also has a magic tape so pwede mong ikabit ulit after. There are times kasi na James has not peed on the diaper too much, yung tipong isang ihi pa lang, saying naman kung itatapon agad, so I let him reuse it then after a while, hugas then change to a new diaper. What I like best about EQ Dry is that hindi nagugutay – gutay yung laman ng diaper, yung parang mga bulak sa loob. I had this diaper kasi mom bought sa kapitbahay na nagbuobuo yung mga cottons inside ng diaper so parang ang chakadoodle tingnan. I have been using it from newborn size until now na Large na ang pinapasuot ko. Mas matipid kasi dahil mas matagal mapuno kesa mag medium na sakto lang sa kanya , pero maya’t maya naman ang palit. This was so affordable din. The last time I had was the travel pack in 16 pieces for P136.60 sa Puregold. Bongga na diba? Sa kapitbahay kasi namin, they sell it for P10 each. Ang laki ng tubo grabe!!!

Anyway, I saw this flyer sa pack ng EQ Diaper na they have an ongoing promo “ Make Baby’s Dream Birthday Party  Come True”

Bakit ngayon ko lang nalaman to? Hmmm.. Siguro dahil sa 2 months akong nakatipid sa pagbili ng diaper dahil sa 4 huge packs na diaper galling kina Daryl. Teka makakahabol pa ako eh! 
Anyway, Tamang – tama lang ito, mejo kinakabahan na kasi ako sa 1st birthday ni James! Sakto ang promo na itey! Hahaha.

By the way, It might be with the way James was taken care of din talaga kaya di sya nagkaka rashes kasi as I said here for the nth time, na I always clean his genitals with clean cotton and water. I only use baby wipes kapag nasa galaan kami then when we come home, balik sa cotton+water lang. You may have the best diaper in the world pero hindi mo naman nililinis eh di wala din diba? So mommies out there, don’t foget to make sure na clean and dry ang kanilang pwet and putoytoy or vajayjay ha?! Hehehe.


Kayo mommies? What do you use for your baby’s diaper?
