Huggies V Aldi Nappies

it seems this is one of the 'greatest debates' at the moment. a hot topic.

when you're pregnant / a new mum somehow or other it becomes ingrained knowledge that Huggies are the one, the only, the best nappy for all children...and parents. this somehow leads to a division between huggies users and those that don't (oh my! you don't use huggies? I ONLY use huggies...) and I have witnessed this first hand in the real world....almost as if you don't use Huggies you're a second class parent.

WELL .... I used huggies & modern cloth nappies from the word go...and from the word go Huggies leaked. they leaked in Newborn, they leaked in Infant, Toddler & Walker.... i have had no less than 4 Huggies replacement packets left on my doorstep by their lovely courier people - they must deliver ALOT of nappies to unhappy parents. It definitely pays to complain.

However, having had it knocked into me that Huggies were the one & only I just didn't know where else to go next... we had tried Babylove and found them too plasticky so were shocked off every other brand also. But action was required, a week of wet throughs over night which resulted in my little man being soaked from his nipples to his knees (no exaggeration there) and enough was enough.

I had heard time & time again...Aldi does great nappies, try the Aldi nappies, Aldi, Aldi, Aldi....so I thought to hell with the one & only and everything in between I'll jump straight to one of the cheapest nappy options out there and see what happens...at $13.99 a packet that's not a big loss if they're useless...certainly cheaper than the $33 a box for huggies.

Lo & Behold....Huggies can jump.... these things are fantastic. We had a few leaks in the old style, but only two weeks after starting with Aldi nappies they changed their design and they seriously have not leaked since. Not overnight, not after a massive 5 hours of being out of the house and no nappy change. We have had slight dampness around legs after very big poo's and a 12 hour sleep but hey that's nothing right?

So whilst I don't knock Huggies as a brand, they are wonderful and every child is different, for us right now Aldi nappies are the bomb. And they're saving us squillions...well not quite but a lot less dosh is being used for nappy buying.

Moving Up in the Tech World...& Sewing...

Yesterday I became the new, and admittedly pretty proud, owner of a brand new Ultrabook. In my eyes, the Microsoft equivalent to a MacBook. But that's to a layman like me. In reality I'm sure I am way off.

I have an iPad and I love it, but for what I wanted the MacBook's were just too much of a financial investment. So I went on the hunt for something speedy (to handle my photos), something light (to carry around the house) and something smallish (to sit on my lap). AND it had to be within budget, and look okay too.

Two visits to Harvey Norman later - we have changed our HN of choice for purchases after receiving lackluster service at our original preferred store. And I walked out happy as a pig in the proverbial with a Toshiba Ultrabook - 4gb ram, 32mb SSD, 13.3 inch screen, and Windows 8! (But no touch screen)

Windows 8 is a trip. Everything has an app, so it's like your ipad, on a computer. But the standard desktop and Windows set up is running in the background - acc…

Be Yourself.

Heard this for the first time yesterday... it made me smile. Be yourself.

Taco Tuesday, Bunday Monday, Sunday Roast.

And so the list goes!
Many would be familiar with Taco Tuesday, and a definitive Aussie culture is the Sunday Roast.
My 6 year old last week coined Bunday Monday! This means on Mondays we eat buns with various fillings.
Week 1 was YIAH slow cooked pulled pork with homemade coleslaw, on brioche.
Week 2 was YIAH La Parissiene meat patties with salad - essentially a hamburger - on tiger buns.
It's not fancy, it only classifies as healthy because it's homemade and comes with salad but the most important thing about all of it is my 6 year old son is involved in the process.
He named the funny meal day after working to find a word that rhymes with Monday, he has chosen the bread rolls each week and as a result is keen to eat what's in them. 
Anyone with a six year old will understand the magnitude of a new food item being added to the revolving repertoire at this age. 
So If Bunday Monday means cucumber and lettuce being eaten, roll on next Monday!
