In the almost two years that I have been a mother, I’ve learned that what I thought I knew before – I don’t really know anything about. At all. Like most of you, I am simply winging it. There is one thing I know for certain though; babies are expensive.
In the beginning, I was adamant about using the trendiest plant-based diapers with the cute prints and the most luxurious wipes. I’m not the type to splurge money on myself but I wanted my baby to have the best of the best. Typical first time mom mentality, right? Then one day, I was zoning out while nursing and my eyes diverted to the growing pile of dirty diapers in the garbage. It became apparent to me that we were literally throwing money away. There had to be a better way.
So I did what all moms do in time of need: turned to other mom friends for advice. A friend told me about Well Beginnings™ from Walgreens. She had been using it with her 2 boys and she raved about the quality matching up to well known diaper brands. Oddly enough, I never considered Walgreens as a place for baby needs, I associated it with photos and pharmacy needs but boy was I wrong.
I realized that brand name and a high price tag does not always equate to quality. In fact, the Well Beginnings™ line surprised me pleasantly. They were easily accessible, priced well and the diapers are just as absorbent as the most well known brands. I also love that the Well Beginnings™ diaper and Well Beginnings™ wipes are hypoallergenic, the diapers contain Botanicals, Vitamin E & aloe and received the Good Housekeeping Seal for Drugstore Star. The wipes are dermatologist tested and alcohol free. And the price? You can’t beat it with an Everyday Low Price of $6.99 per bag of diapers. If that wasn’t a great enough price, when you go in store at Walgreens, now – August 26, you’ll find a $2.00 coupon available at the shelf. So yes, we will be stock piling for the year.
And mama’s, be on the lookout for the #BestStarts Twitter Party on August 10th, and the #BestStarts sweepstakes which is open now until August 25th. By participating you will have a chance to win a Walgreens gift card and other baby essentials. You can’t win if you don’t try.
