Thanks to Mom Central Consulting for giving me Huggies Snug `n Dry Diapers and Natural Care Plus Wipes for free.

And yet now both of my girls have a beloved thing they love to have at bedtime (my older daughter favors one of these plush blanket dolls, while my younger daughter sleeps with a little stuffed dog).

And I love that they have them! Here are four reasons I think they are a lifesaver.
