Pampers vs Huggies

Hello Everyone! How’s it going? It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything!  I’ve been busy with my other blog The Paperback Princess.  But I’m back 😀.

So..the other day I received a sample pack from Pampers (Size 5) to try on my 3 year old son.  They were the swaddler overnight ones.  I’ve been using The Huggies brand and thought I’d give the Pampers a try to see if they were any better.  

The results..


– There’s a wetness indicator on the outside of the diaper, which is perfect for newborns.

-The diaper is light and thin.  Not thick and bulky like some other brands.


– They don’t fit as nicely as Huggies.  I find Huggies fits like a pair of underwear, which is great for babies and toddlers with a larger frame. 

The Verdict:

I still prefer Huggies.  For my son, D anyway.  Pampers seem to be more suited for a smaller frame, like my daughters.  I used to use Pampers for my older daughter when she was little, but they didn’t have the overnight ones back then and the only other time I have used the swaddlers, was when my 10 month old was a newborn. 

Looks like I’ll be saving the Pampers Size 5’s for when my 10 month old can fit into them.  For now, I’m going back to the Huggies brand for my son.

Which diaper brand do you or did you like using?


Soy-Free Sauce

The perfect alternative to soy sauce.

The Paperback Princess

Being Asian and having a soy allergy sucks big time! No Chinese food for me 😞. However, I stumbled across a soy alternative sauce at Bulk Barn a month ago: Organika Coconut Sauce

It’s gluten-free, non-GMO & doesn’t have any MSG. So I decided to give it a try by making chicken stir-fry.

It might not taste like soy sauce, but it was really good..possibly even better. If you’re looking for an alternative to soy, give this one a try.

Have you seen this sauce before? Or tried it?

High Tech Food Allergy Bracelet: AllerGuarder

As some of you may already know from previous posts, my daughter has a severe peanut allergy.  It’s hard to send her off to a friend or relative’s house without worrying she might come in contact with peanuts.  After all, unless you are a parent of a child who has a severe food allergy, you won’t think to be OCD over what’s in your food.

We’ve had so many close calls.  Despite constant reminders to my family that A is allergic to peanuts, somehow, peanuts always makes its debut and it’s mega frustrating.  Thankfully, I’ve stumbled across this innovative allergy alert bracelet called AllerGuarder.

How it works
AllerGuarder is a water-resistant bracelet made of hypo-allergenic silicone and equipped with Bluetooth technology.  It broadcasts your child’s food allergy alert by downloading the app.  Unlike other bracelets, information such as emergency contacts, food allergy lists and what to do in the event of a reaction, gets stored in the bracelet. Traditional allergy alert bracelets tend to get overlooked, which is one of the reasons AllerGuarder was created.

All you need to do is download the free app and input your child’s food allergy information.  Whether it’s a relative or friend, as long as they download the app onto their smartphone or device, they can access your child’s Allergy information.
