Dressing Infants & Toddlers On a Budget With Garanimals from Walmart


Before I had my first baby, a little over 13 years ago, I got all kinds of advice from my parents, other parents and friends. Most of the advice was about the cost of diapers, formula and how "life would never be the same". They weren't lying but they sure weren't telling the whole truth either.

This post brought to you by GoodNites. All opinions are 100% mine. Bedwetting isn't a problem our family has been exempt from. After potty training 3 kids, we've had our share of middle of the night bedding changes. It's a hard transition for kids (and parents) especially during the first few weeks. For our youngest daughter who just turned four, we've mastered the day time transition to underwear but nighttime has … [Read more...]
