Benjamin’s favorite game at the moment is to take off after the dog as fast as he can, stop and turn back to smile at us as we chase him down (he is allergic to dog saliva!), and then laugh hysterically as he speeds off after her again! It is the cutest thing ever, and we do this all day long, every single day. I am not even kidding! Thankfully the Huggies Little Movers diapers we have been using are keeping up with him! But, we didn’t expect Ben to be this active at age one.
When we first got the news of Benjamin’s Achondroplasia (a form of dwarfism) diagnosis, we were full of fear of the unknown. His geneticist’s assistant called us on our first day home from the hospital. She eased our minds about a lot of the major things we were worried about, but also informed us that Benjamin may have significant motor skill development delays and not to be surprised if he’s still not walking at age 2. This was not something we had prepared ourselves for.
The geneticist gave us a motor skills development chart solely for children with Achondroplasia. As each month passed, our boy was meeting each milestone anywhere from very early to average. Crawling came early in all kinds of crazy forms you won’t see many babies doing. From a method called a Reverse Snow Plow to Bear Crawling, he’s done it all! So, of course, I feel super lucky to have found Huggies Little Movers Diapers at Sam’s Club. They keep him extremely dry and comfortable, without any irritation, through hours of crawling, climbing, and even while taking his very first steps, a huge milestone he just met a little shy of 13 months old! The Huggies Little Movers Diapers adapt so well to all the silly positions he works himself into!
Now, at age one, Ben is pulling himself up, cruising, and has just started taking his first few steps on his own! We need a reliable, flexible diaper more than ever! Between the crazy crawling techniques he still uses, push toys, and moving around faster than ever, I worry about leakage and chaffing. Thankfully we have not experienced any of that with Huggies Little Movers Diapers and the stretchy SnugFit Waistband keeps them securely in place! It’s so important to keep our boy comfortable and moving as much as possible so he can continue to surprise us all!
