On Friday Harper had her very first temperature. I felt her forehead and worried, knowing her molars are coming in I assumed it was teething but she’d never had a fever before and she also had a light cough. She went up to 102 degrees, but by Saturday evening seemed right as rain again. This was about the time my husband and I began to feel deathly ill. We both had migraines, bad coughs, and felt achy and lethargic. I was so glad Harper was feeling better; I can’t imagine caring for a sick baby when both parents are sick. I was also very thankful that I’m still able to breastfeed my fourteen month old, I believe my round-the-clock nursing on Saturday was what brought her back to her old self again so quickly. What are your favorite remedies for a sick baby? And what do you do to juggle childcare when you’re under the weather?
Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous organic cotton diaper from Smart Bottoms called the Smart One. I can’t tell you how excited I was when Kim showed me this beauty; I am completely enamored with the romantic floral print. This pattern is listed as Ella on their site, which I think is a perfect name for such a lovely diaper.
Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩✩ Arguably the easiest diaper ever, all-in-ones are babysitter, daycare, and grandparent approved. There’s no prep needed, just put it on and go. These particular all-in-ones feature a tongue style soaker, which you fold under before diapering. This tiny extra step will save you many extra dry cycles in the long run, so I am thrilled they did it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to check my other organic all-in-ones and find they were still damp and needed to dry longer.
Editor’s Note- In our previous reviews when I (Kim) reviewed this diaper before the improvements we were concerned about how long they would fit a toddler. The waist was already tight on my son at the time and he was nearing potty training age. With the more generous sizing and the lack of hip snap it will fit much longer and I’m very pleased with their newest version. Where to Buy: Diaper Junction (a DDL affiliate)
