Discomfort is the Recipe for Cranky Kids

I don't know about you but I love to fly business class. I just got back from Sydney via business class on a budget airline ('cos we can't afford the "real" thing alright *laughs*) and boy, did we enjoy the spacious seats that allowed us to lean all the way back without hitting someone's head. Sure, for the same amount of money we could have flown economy on a five star airline but we decided that our comfort for the 8-hour journey was more important to us.

When you're uncomfortable, you're just more tired and cranky and a lot less pleasant to be with.

We made sure that my girl was wearing her Drypers Drypantz because she had previously accidentally peed on her seat on the flight back from Hong Kong. Since our flight to Sydney was 8.5 hours, we were not taking any chances! She has been wearing diaper pants from Drypers since last year (when she was toilet-trained for day but not for night) and we really like it as she can wear it for hours without leaking or causing a diaper rash (my girl has really sensitive skin!).

She slept really well on the plane without moving much. When she woke up just before we landed, I removed her diapers and it was full to the brim! Thank God we put a good diaper on her!

Her Drypers Drypantz was also our must-have for the long car rides in Sydney where my girl will be fast asleep in the car. She'll sometimes forget that she is not wearing a diaper so she might accidentally pee while she's sleeping and we really do not want to dirty the car seat that we rented. Not to mention that if need be, we do not need to stop for an emergency toilet break if a toilet is not in sight for the next, I don't know, 50km.

New and improved Drypers Drypantz

Recently Drypers improved the look and feel of their diaper pants, which was great news for us since we already love the old version. I don't think it's possible but they have made it even more absorbent and comfortable!

Baby Boy also got to try out the new Drypers Wee Wee Dry, which is softer than its predecessor, fits more comfortably and is gentle on baby's skin.

Comfort and absorbency are my top priority when choosing a diaper for my babies since they wear diapers almost every minute of everyday for the first few years of their lives. A sticky and scratchy diaper (believe me, we have ever bought diapers like that) that causes diaper rash can be, quite literally, a pain in the ass.

Drypers Wee Wee Dry is softer to touch and is formulated with natural plant extracts so that it is also gentle on baby's skin

Baby Boy has been wearing the diapers for a few weeks and so far, we had no problems with leaks or diaper rash. I also liked the Flexi-tape, which could be fastened again and again. This function was useful as there were many occasions that we would open the diaper to change it thinking that there was poop, only to find out that it was a false alarm. Instead of throwing the diaper away like we used to, we'd just have to re-fasten the tab instead. Saved us a few diapers in the process! =)

The Flexi-tape™  is specially designed to allow for multi-refastening so as to ensure the best fit for any size

It's part of my job as a mum to ensure that my kids are free of pain and that I'm their source of comfort when they are distressed. In Psychology, a child will go to the person whom they have formed a secure attachment with (also known as the Secure Base) for comfort when they are feeling distressed.

I'm always the one the kids run to whenever they are sick (as my girl was in this picture), hurt or scared!

I'm glad that I was always the one that the kids go to whenever they are scared, sick, in pain or uncomfortable! =)

With the kids growing up faster than I can bake a cake in the oven (as in an actual oven and not my baby-making organ), every minute counts! I don't want to have to spend our precious time together fretting over small and unnecessary stuff like bottom rash and diaper leaks. When they are comfortable, they're happy; and when they're happy, I'm happy! =)
