I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for WaterWipes. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It started when my firstborn was a tiny two week old. My husband and I decided to drive around our small Texas hill country town in hopes of calming our boy and showing him off to some of our friends before we made a big move. We stopped to admire the view and cuddle our little guy who wasn’t so fond of the twisty, turns of the hill country roads.
After confirming plans to visit some dear friends, we decided to check little mans pants. NO WONDER he was upset, he was on the verge of his first major blow out. Luckily we caught it in time. Not so lucky that we didn’t have a single diaper in the car!
The next thing I know my little guy was laying in the arms of a friend with a small burp rag covering his parts.
These weren’t just any friends, they were friends that counseled us through engagement. Friends who we greatly respected. After raiding the closets to find an entirely too big disposable diaper that the grandkids used for their dolls, we at least felt better that our kid wouldn’t poop directly on them. Of course they were extremely understanding, and reminded us that poop happens.
Fast forward a few years, and not much has changed. The poop just keeps happening. and happening.
It seems like every time we get in the car someone has a poop explosion.
Massive blowouts that take 3 grown women, and intense water hose , and 5ml of lavender essential oil to properly clean one awful car seat (yes. this really happened. Sorry to my Mom & Aunt)
As a mostly cloth diapering mama, I’m admittedly comfortable with poop. Yes, I’m one of those crazies who opted in to spraying down and reusing the pieces of cloth that hold my kids bodily excretions. You can read more about why here. Take that as proof that I’m not afraid of dealing with poop.
Like the time we stopped to get gas and take part in a luxury bathroom experience at Buc-ees. You would think with such a glorious place to, um, poop, my little man could have held it in.
You would have thought wrong.
Apparently the (2 mile) trek from pump to potty was too long, and about 50 feet from the door what do we see? poop. flowing out of my son’s pants and down his leg. We promptly stopped at a trashcan and thew away his clothes. If there were a water hose near by I would of hosed him down, but there wasn’t. The next logical thing was to use WaterWipes. Baby wipes that are actually extremely effective and are chemical free! Finally a better option for wipes on the go! They actually only contain 2 ingredients water and .1% grapefruit extract. Next time you are planning your travels I highly advise checking out WaterWipes.
Let’s just say that if they hold up through one of my toddler’s blow outs , they’re durable. I was pleased to know that I don’t need all of the extra chemicals to wipe my babies bottoms. They’re both durable AND effective. It’s a major win for the “crunchy” community to have a safer, natural option.
You can pick them up at your local Babies “R” Us. Only $6 for 2 packs right now. Even if you aren’t currently in need, you may just want to stock up since *poop* happens.
