Whatever Gets You Through the Night... Or the Flight

So, this review is shamefully late, due to circumstances beyond our control. BUT, but... the lateness of this review afforded further opportunity for product testing. So - all's well that ends well, no?

The product: Huggies Overnites diapers. The tester: WonderBaby, she of the exuberant bladder. The testing conditions: long nights, one long flight and one super-long car trip.

It was clear from the moment that we began using the overnight diapers that this would be an easy review to write: they worked, totally. No wet bursts in the night, no overflowing pants in the morning. Perfect. So it was that I thought that there really wasn't anything to say, review-wise: the overnight diapers work beautifully overnight, and I would totally buy them.

End review.

But then we - WonderBaby and I - took a cross-country trip involving airlines and road trips and lo, the overnight diapers revealed themselves to be useful for more than just nights. (Insert astronaut joke here.) One Huggies Overnite diaper lasts longer than a flight from Toronto to Vancouver, and longer than a road trip from Vancouver to the north Okanagan of BC (a four hour drive), and certainly longer than a flight from the Okanagan back to Vancouver, and (I'm presuming) longer than the flight from Vancouver to Toronto.

I'm actually pretty certain that we could fly from Vancouver to Japan or Toronto to Capetown or anywhere to the moon and - barring any unnecessary poo - be fine with one Huggies Overnite diaper.

It's not that I'm averse to in-flight diaper changes (well, actually, I am so averse), and it's not that I would altogether avoid diaper checks - but knowing that we can stretch the time between changes on long plane trips and road trips and the like makes travelling a lot easier.

So there you have it: Huggies Overnite diapers... not just for overnight.

And... if you leave a comment HERE, you could win a package of Overnights of your very own! Enough for a trip around the world, or two.

Fabulous point - traveling with a small child is stressful enough, but in-flight diaper changes can put you over the edge.

Huggies Overnites - not just for bedtime anymore!

Those sound superb for the travelers among us. I'm almost ashamed I didn't think of it myself.
