If you come over to our house during the day you can usually find our one and a half year old running around our backyard and playing with his big brother. He is a busy little one and we can barely keep up with his energy levels.

This year the summer here in BC has been very hot, extremely dry with almost no rain! For the last few weeks there was a heat wave going on and all of B.C.’s South Coast, Vancouver Island and the Lower Fraser Valley were experiencing Level 4 drought conditions. It was so hot that staying indoors was out of the question, playing in the backyard under the shade of the trees was always a better alternative.

Because it has been so hot lately our toddler has been taking his clothes off to run around with just his diaper on. We usually use disposables only at nap time and during the night but since we are going through water restrictions and our water reservoirs are shrinking we are taking a break from using cloth during the day in an effort to save some water as we desperately need it. Every little effort counts!

Thankfully we have been using Huggies® Little Movers Plus diapers, available exclusively at Costco Canada.  These new diapers feature double grip strips that help the diaper stay on your child, even if they are active and running around for hours, like my son!

We have been testing the Huggies® Little Movers Plus diapers for day and night time use and they are a great fit for our very active little guy. He stays dry and happy and the diapers are super soft and comfortable. Huggies® Little Movers Plus are actually Huggies® most absorbent diapers* for day & night protection.  (*except for Huggies® Overnites Diaper).



We are really hoping for some more rain and meanwhile we are keeping busy with activities that don’t require water. No more splash pools or water tables for us. Right now we are focusing on playing with things like our sand table and enjoying the beach, lakes and public pools when we want to go for a swim or play in the water.

What are you doing to help save water? What fun outdoor activities do you suggest that don’t use water?
