So several months ago I purchased this things called "The Juppy" I had seen several reviews on them and thought how great would this be for my little guy learning how to walk? So I took the plunge and made the purchase. It took a little longer to get her than I had hoped and DS had already taken several steps, just had not figured out how to take several in a row. 

When my Juppy arrived I immediately took it out of the package and put it on DS. Now he wasn't exactly thrilled about this, BUT after several steps he figured out that he didn't have to hold on to me and could still walk without falling over. Success! We used it for a short period of time before DS was finally up and walking on his own, and now he is running away from us every chance he gets.

So when I bought this after only a few weeks the zipper broke SO I contacted the company that I purchased it from, mailed back mine with a broken zipper and they mailed me back a brand new one. By the time I sent mine, and got the new one back, DS was walking and I had no need for it SO I am giving it away!

So up for grabs is a blue The Juppy baby walker. The is the fully lined version (RV $49.95 - but on sale for $29.95). It has some great reviews and has sponsored on many television shows.

Little Boppers "Tester" Review

I have recently decided to try the fitted diapers again. DS has been getting rashes and I don't want to give up on cloth so I thought I would try something that is a little more breathable. I have seen many WAHM's lately that have started making the hybrid fitteds. They are just the same as other fitteds BUT they have a hidden layer of polyester fleece in them, making them a little more water proof. I thought...perfect.

So I saw that Little Boppers was putting out a tester of these diapers. I have owned some of her AI2's in the past and they are great diapers. She makes a very high quality diaper and uses the cutest prints. I thought this would be a great time to try one of these out for myself. So with some stalking help :-) I was able to score a M/L hybrid fitted and was super excited when it arrived in the mail that same week! I did the prepping as instructed and put it on DS the next day. Now for WHATEVER reason as soon as I put ANY new diaper on DS, he poops in it immediately....really?? So, ok, first time trying out this super cute diaper, it didn't even last long enough on him to get a picture :-(. OK, now I am doing a load of diaper laundry just so I can get this washed a back on the butt.

Second attempt went much better. I tried the diaper on him, took some photo's and was surprised at how trim it actually was. Anne had said that they were a little bulkier than her other fitteds (which I have not yet had a chance to try) but I thought it looked pretty trim. And it held really good. After a couple of hours I went to go and change DS and I could feel only a slight dampness through the front, which I had to actually feel for. I was impressed.

Now, here is the bad news. DS is a SUPER heavy wetter at night. We use Kawaii GNHW stuffed with hemp, bamboo, and zorb. I tried using this at night with a fleece cover (dampness, lots of it) and an AMP cover (less dampness, but still sheet changing) but in both instances I still had to change sheets and DS woke up upset that he was wet. BUT I still love the diaper. I have yet to try it with the GNHW covering it, but I am pretty sure it would hold up good. It is very soft and made very well. I would give this a 4 out of 5 :-)

Lil' Bit Customs

So I am on a new quest to try out some new WAHM dipes. They get pretty pricey, and I already have more diapers than I need, BUT I am somewhat of an addict so I will start with ones that I have recently purchased in hopes of, if nothing more giving a new view of them, my view. So my first WAHM is Lil Bit Customs. The mama that runs it is WONDERFUL. Her name is Kayleigh and she can make a custom (and by custom I mean shell, inner, outter) diaper to your needs. And she doesn't only do diapers! She also has some super adorable outfits, carseat canopies, nursing covers, bags, etc. She is a very talented mama and her things are very professional and made with quality.

 This is Maddox. He is 14 months and about 24 lbs. I ordered a Medium touchtape. Snaps and my child don't get along so well, so I get aplix whenever possible. This is an AIO with buttersuede inner and a zorb core (I have a heavy wetter), so we upgraded, but there are many different ones you can pick from.

This is one of the trimmest diapers we own and it has held up wonderfully against my heavy wetter. I love her diapers and love even more now that she is doing embroidery!
