After receiving my package of Bellissimos yesterday, I knew that there were two things I wanted to try out. The first was a complete Little session, filled with bottles, plushies, preschool TV shows and diapers. The second was something that I've wanted to try out for ages ever since I heard about how fantastic it is: putting oatmeal into my diapers.
After how happy and satisfied I was with the performance of the Bellissimos during my Little session, I knew I just had to try the oatmeal thing at least once. See, I have a love-hate relationship with messy diapers. I love the way it feels to be in a messy diaper, but I hate the clean up and the smell.
So, after preparing two sachets worth of oatmeal and having worn a Bellissimo for quite some time (2-and-a-half wettings)' I let it cool then dropped it all into the rear of my diaper. The feeling was instant.
The oatmeal was still warm, but not warm enough to burn my butt. As it settled into place, I could immediately feel that loving feeling I get from a messy diaper. I eased myself down to sit in the oatmeal and feel it spread inside, and the fact that it was close to odourless made it all the more worthwhile.
And what surprised me the most was that even the clean up wasn't that hard. Maybe it might have to do with the fact that I added a few extra drops of water to make it less sticky, but it came almost clean off of me when I changed out of it.
Needless to say that, much like my Little time, the oatmeal thing is something I have to do sometime again in the future~
