As a foster mom for nearly eight years, going on a diaper run is usually my first (and a truly essential) outing after receiving a new little one in our home.
During our time as a foster family, we’ve welcomed over a dozen children into our care, and I can think of only a few little ones who have come equipped with enough diapers to last them through the day — the day…I’m totally serious.
Hence, the diaper run.
Making the Most of My Diaper Run
I’ve recently come to love All Good Diapers, a new brand available exclusively at Wal-Mart. These diapers are full of all of the good stuff, without any of the bad. They are free of fragrance, elemental chlorine bleaching, parabens, and latex. They’re also hypoallergenic and breathable to ensure that baby’s skin is treated right from the start. AND for every box purchased, All Good donates one day’s worth of diapers to little ones in need through their partnership with Feeding America. These are diapers that make a difference. It’s a no brainer, which makes my job of choosing something good so much easier.
As a foster mom, I’m coming alongside families to support children in need, and the diapers I’m buying are doing the same thing. Incredible.
While I’m on my diaper run, Wal-Mart is a great place to stock up on baby, toddler, and household essentials. I make sure to grab some new sippy cups, a toothbrush and toothpaste, shampoo, blankets, and a stuffed animal. There are a LOT of people in our house (ALL THE TIME), so I grab some toilet paper and laundry detergent while I’m out.
Or, in this new coronavirus normal in which we find ourselves, I do a virtual diaper run via Wal-Mart grocery pick-up!
I take a lot of care when it comes to a new child in my home. I want to make sure that he or she feels as comfortable and secure as possible. A few brand new items (even if they are essentials) usually help, as well as a cuddly companion.
Match all of that with the softness and strength of All Good Diapers, and the stage is set for a smooth transition to life in our home. I’m definitely not a perfect parent, but I do all I can to make the children in my care feel comfortable, safe, and secure.
Whether you’re welcoming a new little one, or doing all you can for the ones who have been with you from the start, you can help families in need by purchasing All Good Diapers.
