I’ll admit it. Before having my own daughter, I judged on other parents who let their kids run around in tutus and dresses. This wouldn’t be my daughter. No, not ever.
Then I had a daughter.
And she discovered dress-up.
And now holy hell breaks out lest the gal isn’t sporting a fancy frilly garment of some sort. You’ll excuse me while I eat my words.
In any case, my daughter now ALWAYS tops off her outfit with a get-up of sorts. Most lately, it’s been the cowgirl fiasco. The only problem? She pees through. Or worse, bring on the poop…
Before kids, I never would have envisioned how an entire day might be dedicated to arguing the logic of why we needed to wash a poop-stained dress before my daughter could wear it again. Now I understand that these days are THE NORM. If she leaks through, it’s not only a mess, it’s a crisis because her fancy dress of choice is now out of commission until it can be washed.
We are engaging in some rather vigorous potty-training efforts, but we are far from total success. During this process, I’ll admit to not being a huge fan of training pants and their limited poop/pee containability, especially at nighttime.
When H-E-B sent us some of their newly redesigned, better-fitting diapers to test, with the claim of “up to 12 hrs of leakage protection”, I was hopeful. Could this be real? You see, my children have never been big nappers. They run busy all day, and then, come 7-8ish pm? They zonk out until morning. So we need diapers that stand the test of active kids AND truly last for 12 hrs. of coverage at night.
H-E-B diapers are impressively thin, soft and cloth-like. With a stretchy waist and side panels, they seemed to fit her well and I was hopeful the snug fit would also help prevent leaks. So after dinner, we tried on one of the new diapers.
Part of my gal’s cowgirl training involves pretending our dog is a horse and she is in the rodeo. As you can imagine, the dog loves this. I’m sure he was also especially thrilled that her new H-E-B diaper did not allow any leak-throughs.
Finally, the cowgirl crashed. It was time to put her in bed and see if H-E-B could carry us through the night.
Guess what? Total success! No need for Mommy to panickedly wash the cowgirl dress in the morning because of a leak-through.
I’m tickled to find a new diaper that works for my daughter. With H-E-B’s affordable price, these diapers are going to be our new go-to diaper until we get this little gal fully potty-trained. Quality and value together? Total score!
Now you’ll excuse me. I think the rodeo is about to start again.

I think most of us eat our words of what we think we will and won’t do when we become parents. All four of our little ones (1 girl and 3 boys) love to dress up. When they are in diapers, a well fitting diaper that doesn’t leak can really add to quality of life for you and for them!
So well said, Theresa! Completely a quality of life situation–especially for all those dress-up occassions 😉
