I Finally Found the Perfect Diaper | Huggies® Special Delivery™

When a family crisis came up and we had to make an unexpected family trip to North Carolina last week, I barely had time to pack for myself, much less a family of five. On the short list of essentials that I forgot to pack in my haste were band-aids (boy moms, ya’ll know what I’m talking about) and diapers. We made a quick trip when we arrived in Charlotte to a local Walmart and picked up a box of Huggies® Special Delivery™, Huggies®’ newly launched “perfect diaper” – premium disposable diapers that boldly claim to be the softest plant-based* diaper. Could it be?

After 8 years of diapering, I finally found the perfect diaper.


Usually, when I am embarking on a vacation, I can feel some of my worries shed off of me, like a second skin sloughing off and I am excited to immerse myself in the beauty, history that surrounds me in a new place. As for this trip to Charlotte – well, it was most definitely not a vacation – and I found myself having to confront a not-so-pretty side of life that gets dealt when there is an illness in a family member. Amidst managing emotions and other necessary things to get in order, I was really grateful that Huggies® Special Delivery™ gave me one less thing to worry about by having me covered in at least one aspect – my little one’s tush. ;)


Made with plant-based* materials, Huggies® Special Delivery™ diapers are hypoallergenic and have no harsh ingredients. I love that I can feel good about using these plant-based* disposable diapers – and that Huggies® Special Delivery™ provides a superb premium mix of softness and performance to keep Atticus’s skin protected and comfortable. Trust me, these are so, so soft!


Near the end of our trip, Atticus managed to poop 4 times in a 3-hour time span. That’s 3 diapers more than I would normally have used in one morning. Unfortunately, we still had two whole days left in Charlotte and just a few remaining diapers. You do the math ;) Thankfully, Huggies® Special Delivery™ has Huggies®’ trusted protection that lasts up to 12 hours, as well as the Huggies® wetness indicator, so I was able to carefully monitor and stretch out the last few diapers I had left. Don’t they say, quality over quantity?

To be honest, after potty-training my older two kids for what was a better portion of the last four years of my life, I’m in no hurry to start with my littlest just yet. Huggies® Special Delivery™ diapers go up to Size 6, which is what I have Atticus in right now. I’ve found that Huggies® Special Delivery™ diapers offer a snugger fit around the leg openings, allowing for better containment of you know what. Since we’ve been using these diapers, he hasn’t leaked overnight once. Cue. The. Slow. Clap.

Also, check out all these cute designs that Huggies® Special Delivery™ comes in! There are a variety of stylish designs in neutral colors, including my fav “Free Hugs” – yes, Atticus, I’ll take ALL the free hugs you’re willing to give! Stay little forever!
