Super Undies The Only Way to Potty Train Your Super Hero!

image002

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, its…Super Undies to the rescue!   Super Undies are a line of innovative potty training pants and accessories that improves the time it takes to potty train.

image001 (1)

Cheaper than disposable pull-on diapers and easier to clean and reuse than typical underwear, Super Undies defeats the villainous embarrassment and stress of potty training and bed wetting and adds a much higher success rate to dry days and nights!

Super Undies line of Pull-On and Snap-On potty training pants are completely waterproof through the wet zone, but made with super stretchy side tabs for easy on and off action. The undies come in a variety of bright colors for both boys and girls and are most like real underwear, which makes for an easier transition from diapers into the potty training mindset.

Both the Pull-On and Snap-On are superbly crafted, are waterproof, and include extra layers of built-in microfiber absorbency.  Unlike disposable diapers that don’t allow children to feel wet, Super Undies are designed with a pocket that runs strategically from the front to the back, allowing parents to customize the absorption level, causing the child to feel wet, without ruining your furniture!

As anyone who has bought disposable pull-up diapers knows, they are extremely expensive and wasteful.  It is easy to go through an entire box of disposable pull-ups in one day of potty training.  Super Undies are such a great alternative because they are washable and reusable! You’ll never run out and you’ll never have to buy more! You are helping both your wallet and the environment!

Super Undies make the stresses of potty training much simpler with its entire arsenal of accessories, including a line of Nighttime Undies, Soaker Bombs for boys, Step-Up Inserts, and Waterproof Sheets.

Don’t let potty training scare you! Let Super Undies turn toddlers and children into the super hero they always wanted to be.  Children can now stand proud, with their fists on the sides of the elastic waistband of justice!

I don’t have a little one and my son is almost 11 but we passed on a sample to a friend and she was absolutely delighted!  She loves that they are washable and reusable and was really impressed!

You can find out more on their website!

ALEX MITNICK 'LOVE SONGS FOR MY BABY'

unnamed

Award winning kids’ musician Alex Mitnick, best known for his work with Alex & The Kaleidoscope Band, has been a dad for almost a year. Alex is so head-over-heels in love with baby Miles that he’s written an album for him!

To celebrate Miles’ very first Valentine’s Day and give fans a sneak peek of the album he inspired, Alex Mitnick invites families to view an all-new music video, based on the beautiful song “Feelin’ Fine” from Love Songs For My Baby.

Watch the “Feelin’ Fine” video HERE.

Says Alex Mitnick, “Becoming a dad has been the most incredible spiritual experience I’ve ever had. The new album became a kind of meditation, with each song providing a sound track into the experiences of being a new parent. Love Songs For My Baby is as close to my heart as I can possibly imagine, and I can’t wait to share it with families.”

We received a copy of this CD and these really are such heartwarming songs for a baby and very young children! SoCal City Kids gives this album a thumbs up and a must-have for all new parents!

Love Songs For My Baby was released nationwide for Father’s Day 2014 so is already available.
