Super Stash provided this diaper for review. For information on how we attempt to ensure our product reviews are as honest and fair to diaper creators as possible, please click here. I’m all about diapers that don’t break the bank and can be used for a long time before being outgrown, and that’s especially true of newborn diapers! When Super Stash first sent me an Alva Newborn Pocket Diaper to review I was impressed with the price point. When they later sent me one of their exclusive Wide Alva Newborn Pocket Diapers (which is wider between the legs, making the pocket roomier and easier to stuff), I was impressed by how much longer the diaper could be worn now that there was room to add more absorbency! In this review I’ll show you the other features of the diaper and explain how it worked on Emily during the time it was in use. Materials/Features This is a pocket diaper, which means that there is a
I’d never heard of the ABC (All Baby & Child) Kids Expo until last year when some of our site sponsors were asking if I’d be there, and after seeing all of the photos and press releases from new products that were unveiled at the event, I swore I’d find a way to attend the following year. That’s why you will find me in Vegas this weekend for the 2014 ABC Kids Expo!The event itself runs from Sunday through Wednesday, but since I can only be there on Sunday I’ll be doing my best that day to make every moment count! To be honest, I’m not entirely certain how that will work (will I be amazing at posting photos on Instagram as I go, or will I have to stop periodically to post a bunch of photos all at one time, or will I just really fail at taking photos but have tons to talk about on Facebook later that night? Tune in on Sunday to find out what

I was recently on vacation with my family at a lake for a week, and I followed my usual approach to swimsuit care (unless they get something nasty on them, hang them up to dry and wear them again later!). On day 5, though, I was walking down the stairs towards our room and was hit by an unmistakable blast of ammonia. I followed the odor to it’s source, which was …. Emily’s swim diaper. It smelled FOUL! Once I thought it through, it made sense. She had been wearing her Blueberry Freestyle swim diaper, and while I had been treating that like a swimsuit, I had forgotten to take into account the very fine layer of absorbency in the diaper. Who knows how many times she had peed in the diaper while we were at the beach, and over the week enough urine had accumulated to finally reach epic ammonia levels. And that’s why I found myself, late at night, working very hard to handwash a
