Having Goodnites as part of our evening routine always leads to a good morning

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and GoodNites, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BetterNights  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

I always love shopping at Target, but this week I had an even better reason to shop there – a lovely 1.50$ off coupon for Goodnites bedtime underwear! Even though JP is fully potty trained, he still needs a little extra protection for when he sleeps at night. I’ve thought that he could *maybe* make it through the nights if I limit his liquid intake before bed, but that’s proven to be really difficult because he loves having his milk before bedtime. If I don’t put him any overnight protection, he usually wakes up in the middle of the night crying and wet that he messed his bed. This ordeal doesn’t happen often but when it does – I try to avoid showing any frustration because at four years old, I know he’s not ready for diaperless nights yet. I stumble out of bed, change his clothing and snuggle him up with me in my bed, and deal with the mess in the morning. This is why we use Goodnites bedtime underwear for nightly protection against bedwetting.

Our nightly routine usually always goes the same way each evening – dinner, bath, quiet time then bed time, and Goodnites play a huge role since JP is old enough now to actually pull them on all by himself! He was so proud that he slipped into them without any help!

One thing that I really do love about these are the fit. I’ve used other ‘pull on’ brands of training pants and diapers in the past and leaking seems to be more common when we use those. Goodnites hug really close to the legs, so we’ve never had a leak issue with these. Leaks are common with boys - his little parts shift inside the diaper while he sleeps, and leaks occur when ‘it’ points to the edges. This happened to us once before, and I was puzzled as to why he wet the bed while still had a dry diaper on! Goodnites are a cut above the rest with their robust  absorbency for more mature bladders – even the back side of the diaper is clearly printed ‘back’ so you know exactly how to put them on.

They call them bedtime underwear, and they weren’t kidding – The design even looks like little boy briefs!

The best part of it all is that JP feels happy and confident to wear these, even though we refer to them as a night-night diapers. Eventually, when I feel like he’s ready to go diaper less, I’m going to switch to using the Goodnites Bed Mats to protect his mattress from the oops moments. Until then, we’ll be using Goodnites, so we can have good mornings ;)

Learning more about myself and my health with 23andme.com


Growing up, I was never much of a science girl when it came to my studies – however biology and the study of our body’s chemistry always interested me. One of the topics that really stuck with me was DNA and how it makes each one of us unique. Over the past decade, so much advancement has occurred in this area to the point that you can now send away to have your very own DNA sampled.

There’s so many good reasons as to why someone would bother to have their DNA analyzed. For one,  if you’re curious about your cultural background or want to know more about where your ancestors came from, the DNA testing kit fron 23andme.com is a great start!

Saving money with Walmart’s 40$ per month Family Mobile program

Last week I was fortunate enough to get a new Android phone supplied to me by Walmart Family Mobile.  It just what I needed to prompt me to decide that I maybe needed to re-think my family’s mobile plan. My husband and I don’t have an old fashioned phone line attached to our home.. Instead, we each have a respective cell phone and that’s how our family and friends know how to reach us. Since our mobile lines hold such importance in our lives, we opted for some pretty robust plans with Verizon.

But the question is… Do we need what we’re paying for?

I picked up an activation starter kit for my Family Mobile Phone while I was shopping the other day and signed up quickly and easily later on that evening. I was able to set up monthly service for as little as 40$/month using my driver’s license and sim card obtained from the starter kit. My goal was to test out this new service and see if it was any better or worse than my current service. Truthfully, we are paying 75$ per phone per month with Verizon – so of course having 2 phones with Walmart Family Mobile would set us back 80$ a month instead. That’s nearly what I’m paying for ONE phone with Verizon! Plus, I’m not getting unlimited anything from Verizon – although I never reach the limits of my web allowance and texts, it’s still nice to know that I get more for less with Walmart Family Mobile!

I’m not trying to knock my current service with Verizon, because they are very good. I’ve not really looked into anything else because we signed a 2 year contract back in August. Seriously though, Who can resist a two for one deal?! Maybe I’ll have to see if I can get out of this contract!

So in light of this new tidbit of info, I felt like it was maybe time to re-think if I really need the plan I’m currently using with Verizon. I really love my iPhone – I keep up with so much on it! Learning a new device like an android might have a bit of a learning curve – so thankfully there is a special activation card that’s meant just for iPhones!

I was just looking to test out the service, so I got the regular card meant for the T-Mobile Concord. I wanted to see what all the hype about android was since I’ve been exclusively an iPhone user since the birth of smart phones. The verdict? The service with Walmart Family Mobile is awesome – and I love the fact that there’s no contract. Also, the online account management tools are super simple to keep up with your payments and account usage. But the truth is, I still love my iPhone. It’s seriously making wonder if I can get out of my contract with Verizon.

I’ll be sure to follow up and let you know all about how my month of service went!
