Subscription boxes are all the rage today. From books to make-up to extravagant curations received quarterly – you can find a subscription for just about anything. As a mom of 3, with my youngest still in diapers I have been buying and trying diapers for about a decade now, and diaper subscriptions caught my interest. Abby&Finn Diapers have been the most impressive so far.

Abby&Finn were not the first subscription diapers I had tried, but they will be the last. Their quality (soft, strong and absorbent), price and “better for bottoms” make have changed me into a lifer. Here is their product information from their website:

Diaper Ingredients:
TCF (Totally chlorine free) wood pulp from sustainably managed forests; SAP (Super Absorbent Polymer) Sodium Polyacrylate; Topsheet, soft internal cover made of Polypropylene; Core wrap and Leg cuffs, made of soft Polypropylene; Acquisition Layer, made out of Polyester fibers; Backsheet, polypropylene fibers and polyethylene film for softness and liquid containment; Leg and crotch elastics, made of polyurethane.

Wipes Ingredients:
Water, Polysorbate 20, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernal Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol

Cruelty Free and Vegan:
They have signed PETA’s Statement of Assurance, which states that they do not conduct, contract out, or fund studies on animals in the development, manufacturing, testing, or marketing of our products, nor do they intend to do so.

My Earnest Little is a heavy wetter, especially at night and typically we would have to buy a size bigger for nighttime protection but with Abby&Finn no need, his size holds him day or night. If I did need a different size at night, I could do so in ONE subscription. Abby&Finn has the convenient option of ordering two different sizes in one box! Love it!

Now pricing, are they cost effective? YES. I am including some prices to show that Abby&Finn have created a high quality diaper service with low prices. Perfect for my budget and eco-conscious family of five. Below are the comparison of size 4 diapers in package sizes similar to Abby&Finn counts – cost is also broken down per diaper.

Subscription Brands:

Parasol Diapers Size 4 160 count for $84 breaking down to $0.52 per diaper

Abby&Finn Size 4 156 count for $45 breaking down to $0.29 per diaper

Honest Diapers Size 4 161 count for $61** breaking down to $0.39 per diaper
**A guesstimate since Honest currently does not offer an option for no wipes in a subscription, the full price of wipes is deducted from the full subscription price (79.95 – 18.95 = 61)

NOTE: The above brands are diapers that are FREE of latex, chlorine, fragrance and lotions and sustainably sourced.

Also: Shipping is factored into the prices.

Big Box Brands, available in big box retailers:

Pampers Swaddlers Diapers Size 4 150 count for $50.99 breaking down to $0.34 per diaper

Pampers Pure Diapers Size 4 80 count for $38.45 breaking down to $0.49 per diaper

Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers Size 4 144 count for $41.99 breaking down to $0.30 per diaper

Luvs Size 4 172 count for $29.99 breaking down to $0.18 per diaper

Seventh Generation Free and Clear Diapers Size 4 81 count for $45.36 breaking down to $0.56 per diaper.

NOTE: Only Seventh Generation and Pampers Pure are latex, chlorine, fragrance and lotion free as well as sustainably sourced in the above list.

Also: Pricing was based on availability from a local big box store and may not reflect current promotions, discounts or price reductions.

The price of Abby&Finn diapers comes in at the lowest for subscriptions boxes and second to lowest of the big box brands that do not meet the high quality standards nor are delivered to my front door. Hands down, having tried EVERY SINGLE diaper on this list the quantity, quality, and price of Abby&Finn cannot be beat!

As if Abby&Finn could not get any better, they are just as socially conscious as they are eco friendly which is first reflected in their name: ABBY is an anagram for baby, FINN is an acronym for Families In Need. Secondly, what they stand for is shown with their commitment to improving the lives of families who need it. With each monthly subscription they donate one diaper a day to families in need. Every time I receive one box, 30 diapers go to a family in need right here in the U.S. So wonderful.

The Mommy Worries. What Helps Me.

Okay mamas, who is with me here:

It is 3:00 am and for some reason my brain is wiiiiiide awake even though my body is crying “GO BACK TO SLEEP!” Instead my defiant brain decides to travel down the winding slippery road of worries.

Worry One: Did I pay the bills? The answer every time is yes, however in the wee hours of the morning my brain convinces me for a moment that I missed them all and that they will be late, late, LATE!

Worry Two: Are my kids alive and healthy at this moment? I have to confess, this heart racing worry has leapt me from my bed and into the rooms of my slumbering children to assure myself that all is well.

Worry Three: Did I switch the laundry? Okay, okay more often than not this worry is a valid actual worry that usually ends up with me rewashing the load in the morning.

Worry four, five, six…anything that my mind can race to next. My kids in school, are the doors locked, did I sign homework forms, so on and so on.

This scenario happens more often than I like to admit, but one of my FAVORITE phrases lately is: “If you are worried about it – pray; if you prayed about it – don’t worry.”

Alas, taking heed to this simple phrase has changed my worry cycle. The minute those worries come flooding in, I remind myself to pray and not worry. Sometimes this is easier said than done, but if I have trouble giving up the worry I turn my phone on and read some scripture or bible study. Quickly, I feel my worried heart start to calm and my mind is able to focus on better things.

Mamas, are any of you familiar with this worry cycle?! What are your go to tips for battle the Mommy Worries?? Please share below.
