So many times I look at them and marvel at how big they're getting in only such a short amount of time. But in those moments, when they're running free through the house, trying to escape my grasp while I chase them around with a diaper and a pair of underwear, they seem to be at their very littlest. I'm nostalgic for it, even as I experience it.
Although in all its greatness, I will admit this ritual once ended after Isla had an accident during one of their diaper-less laps, and they both hit the deck in it. Ahhhhhh, memories.
I don't know if it has been the change in climate or what, but as Isla's gotten older, her skin has seemed to grow increasingly sensitive. It only took one seemingly endless rash for us to realize that the chemicals that were sitting on her tiny bum from her previous diapers needed to get lost. Seventh Generation was the first thing we reached for. Knowing that their diapers are sourced responsibly from safe and effective plant-based products made the choice easy. It was instantly effective on her sensitive skin. Her rash cleared up immediately and has stayed away. I was a little worried about the absorbancy of a natural product, but they're so good, we haven't even needed to use "night" diapers.
"protection for all™" designs are so sweet. The tiniest little animals - working as a reminder to protect all the families that share this planet. Seventh Generation free and clear wipes are also a household staple - completely free of fragrance, dyes, parabens, phthalates, and are also plant based, which makes her leisurely carrying them around and wiping down her whole body (this is a thing) completely worry free.
This post has been in partnership with Seventh Generation, a company we've loved and trusted in our family for years.
