When I was 37 weeks pregnant with Tripp, something really cool happened. One day, I was sitting at home, and diapers just started showing up at my front door. By the end of the day there was a mountain of freaking diapers, and I was dying laughing while trying to figure out what was going on. Each box had a note that said “happy diaper bomb!” or something along those lines. I didn’t know what a diaper bomb was, but I loved it. Now I know. A diaper bomb is when the friends of an expecting mother pick a date, and find a way to all deliver a box of diapers to the mom-to-be on that date (or close to it) without her expecting it. That way all of a sudden she is overwhelmed with a ton of diapers. Because if there is one thing a new mom needs, it’s diapers.
So how is it done?
1 – Coordinate. Get friends together through a group email, or Facebook event. Pick a date, and tell everyone to find a way to get diapers to the expecting mom on that day whether through mail or by dropping off in person. You’ll also want to coordinate who is sending what sizes of diapers. Too many size 1’s and the mom will never use them all so tell everyone to pick a different size of diapers to send.
2 – Follow through. Send reminders. Make sure others follow through and everything should go perfectly!
My favorite diapers to give as gifts are Huggies Little Snugglers and I use them on my own baby as well. [side note: I’m now buying Tripp size 3 in diapers which I can’t believe.] These diapers are amazingly soft, super absorbent, and have a wetness indicator which definitely comes in handy. I love the way they hug Tripp’s waist and legs so that the nasty newborn poop stays where it’s supposed to be, and he’s never leaked through one overnight which is a win in my book. You can find Little Snugglers in up to a size 4 at Kroger. Click here to save $2 on Huggies Little Snugglers at Kroger now through 5/30, while supplies last!
