Kai is 19 months old now. He is a heavy wetter at night. I usually use cloth diapers on him, but it doesn’t work so well for night time since he sleep for 10-12 hours at night. Either he leaks, or wakes up with ammonia smelling diapers and a rash. I switched to disposables (pampers, huggies, luvs), but that didn’t work well either. He still leaked. I tried the night time diapers made by Huggies and Pampers… still leaked. Then I remembered a brand of diapers I used on Mia. It is the brand that Smith’s/Krogers sells, and they are processed chlorine-free and seem to use a different type of absorbing stuff (that’s the technical term). They cost $6-$7 per pack… at least $2 less than the brand names. The great thing??? They don’t leak!!! Yay!!! I’ve gone a whole 3 days now without having to change Kai’s bed sheets! I love when a problem gets solved, and it’s cheaper than you thought it would be!
So far, I haven’t skipped any workout days since April 8, 2013. Yay! This is the longest I’ve gone. I almost didn’t work out tonight, but Nathan said we could take turns on the the elliptical machine, so I had to do it. I don’t usually like working out so late at night (I finished at 11:10 pm). If it’s too late at night, I have trouble getting to sleep at a reasonable time. Oh well… at least I got my workout in. My calf is doing much better. It still feels tight sometimes depending on what I’m doing. Also, if I come down on my leg too hard, I still feel a little pull in it. I’m still trying to stick to mostly low impact cardio, weights, and abs. I just ordered a new workout by Ellen Barrett… one of her new 30 minute, full-body cardio/toning workouts. Can’t wait to try it out!
