Food Lion - Always Be My Baby Brand Diapers and Wipes Review

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Food Lion. All opinions are 100% mine.

With a name like Thrifty Nifty Mommy, I’m sure it’s pretty clear that I like to save money whenever I can. We have 5 kids, so saving money is crucial! With my first 3 children I used cloth diapers religiously, but as our family has grown and my time has become more and more limited, I find myself turning to the ease of disposable diapers many times.

One of the ways I save money on baby essentials like diapers and wipes is to purchase store brands. Many times they are just as good (even sometimes better) than the leading brand but for a fraction of the cost.  Recently Food Lion stores launched an exclusive new brand in the baby care space, Always Be My baby, and they offer diapers, wipes, along with other baby care products. I decided to put Always Be My baby diapers and wipes to the test and wanted to share my findings with you today!

Food Lion Always Be My baby Diapers


The price on the Always Be My baby diapers is very reasonable! I got the smallest size pack to try first because they were sold out of the big boxes. Note, you will typically receive the biggest discount by purchasing the largest package of diapers available.

I also want to note that this was not a sale price. By watching for sales at your local Food Lion, I’m sure you can stock up when they are even cheaper!


The fit on these diapers is great! I purchased size 6 for my almost 3-year-old son. He is 75% potty trained now, but still wearing diapers at nighttime because I don’t have the energy to wash sheets every other day. They fit him great with room for growth.


Sometimes with store brands, the quality just doesn’t seem to be there. That is not the case with the Always Be My baby brand diapers from Food Lion. If I hadn’t purchased them myself, I would have thought that these diapers were from one of the nation’s leading diaper brands.

I also love that fact that these diapers still have the wetness indicator, even in a size 6! For other brands, I’ve noticed that some of them stop doing this in the larger sizes. Personally, I find this feature very helpful!

The print on these diapers is also cute.

Overall Review

I’ve been using the Always Be My baby brand diapers for Gideon at night for a few weeks now with great success! Nighttime is always the time that really puts a diaper to the test, and I’m happy to report that we haven’t had any issues with leaks while using the Always Be My baby brand diapers. Not only that, but they hold their shape very well, even when soaked with urine.

I would definitely recommend these diapers and buy more again in the future, without hesitation!

Food Lion Always Be My baby Wipes


Like the diapers, when I purchased the Always Be My baby Wipes, they were not on sale. Still, at just .99 for a baby wipe tube with 72 wipes and .29 for a 216-count refill bag of wipes, I found the price to be very reasonable!


These wipes are thick, have a pleasant smell, and do a good job of wiping away the gross stuff we need them to. These wipes are sturdy enough to use for wiping little hands and faces too.

Overall Review of the Always Be My Baby Wipes from Food Lion

One thing that’s important to me with a wipe is that it has a good amount of moisture to it. I use a wipes warmer in our home because during the winter months (like right now) we keep our home temperature around 65 degrees to save money. I hate it, but our heating costs are astronomical otherwise. Because it’s so cold, I use the warmer so I don’t have to wipe freezing cold wipes over my baby‘s bottom. Trust me, it makes a difference! The wipes warmer can dry out wipes that don’t come with enough moisture. So far, that hasn’t been an issue with the Always Be My baby wipes from Food Lion.

I am picky when it comes to my wipes. I like a strong, thick, sturdy wipe. I find that I use fewer when the wipe has a good thickness to it, thus saving money. I do not like wipes that tear easily. I’ve also used wipes in the past where the solution on the wipe felt almost slippery. I’m not a fan of that either. Always Be My baby wipes are very sturdy, thick, and have no slippery feeling.

For me, the Always Be My baby Wipes from Food Lion have checked all of the boxes. They are a fabulous brand of wipes that I’d be happy to buy time and time again!

I’m super impressed with both the wipes and the diapers from Always Be My Baby at Food Lion. I would definitely recommend them to moms who are looking to save money without sacrificing quality!

Food Lion Always Be My baby Brand

Diapers and wipes aren’t the only things you will find in Food Lion’s Always Be My baby brand! Always My baby offers a range of trusted, high-quality products to meet all of baby’s needs and save you time and money, like food and formula too! Food Lion offers a DOUBLE your money back guarantee on items purchased from the Always Be My baby brand too!

Development of a child from 2 years to 2.5 years of life: what a child should be able to do

For a child from 2 years to 2 years and 6 months: what he should be able to do

  • After the child is 2 years old, his vocabulary will quickly begin to increase, and by the age of 3 it will reach 800 words. If there is no progress in increasing the vocabulary, then this is the period when it is worth contacting a speech therapist and a neurologist.
  • Speech at this age is predominantly situational. The child gradually adopts the norms and rules of behavior, learns to follow them, but does not always do it with pleasure. However, there are rules in every family (brush your teeth, take off your street shoes, wash your face, etc. ) and it is important that parents insist on following them. Therefore, parents need to decide on the rules of the family and follow them themselves.

What a child can do from 2 years to 2 years and 6 months:

  • Signals physiological needs, attempts to use the potty independently. If the diaper has not been removed yet, then this is a great age to remove it.
  • Knows how to wash hands, dry them with a towel, but does it formally.
  • Knows how to eat on his own, but at the same time he can ask for “finishing”, since the child, having received a small amount of food, may lose interest in it; uses a spoon, improves this skill in the game and while eating.
  • Wants to do adult things with adults: cook dinner, wash the floor, but this does not mean that the child will do this all the time; It is important for parents not to refuse the help of the child.
  • With a little help from adults, be able to dress and undress, but the period of unwillingness to dress and undress on their own (especially in the autumn-winter period) remains quite stable.
  • Knows how to play alongside peers (the child can take the initiative, play with other children, but does not yet like to share toys).
  • Moves from whispering to speaking loudly.

In the field of physical development and motor skills:

  • Runs, performs rhythmic jumps.
  • Climbing stairs with support.
  • Throws and catches the ball from a short distance, rolls and kicks the ball.
  • Draws straight lines, circles, squiggles.
  • Builds a tower with 5-6 cubes.
  • Recognizes and names primary colors.

Physiological curves of the spine are determined during this period. The remaining milk teeth appear, which allows you to chew properly. The achieved physical fitness is already so great that walking, overcoming obstacles, climbing and descending stairs, walking backwards and jumping is not a problem for the baby.

At about 2.5 years old, the child notices anatomical differences between the sexes.

Child skills at 2 years old:

  • Walks and runs, walks down stairs, step by step, holding onto handrails.
  • Knows how to kick, roll, throw the ball.
  • Knows about 200 words, including the names of basic colors.
  • Names the objects shown in the pictures.
  • Helps adults, participates in household chores; draws lines, circles, zigzags.

Child skills at 2 years and 6 months:

  • Walks up and down stairs without help from adults.
  • Speaks in simple sentences.
  • The leading activity is play, the child explores the world through the game.
  • Recognizes the path to places where he often goes, such as his grandmother or the children's clinic.
  • Begins to distinguish male and female, but focuses on external signs: clothes, voice. Gender-role identification is not yet constant, the child rather repeats after the adult who he is: a boy, a girl.
  • Has a growing need for independence (he wants to do many things alone).

Your child is beginning to understand concepts such as time and opposites, such as big/small and day/night. Begins to point to body parts based on what they do, learns to sort objects and match shapes, colors. Begins to remember what things look like, for example: apples are round, cucumbers are green.

Child memory:

  • The objects themselves are remembered better than their names.
  • The ability to think about the missing object appears.
  • Mostly motor and emotional memory present.
  • Arbitrary memory appears, which is the start to the development of imagination.

Child height from 2 years to 2 years and 6 months - norms for boys and girls

  • Girls: 86 to 92 cm.
  • Boys: 86 to 93 cm.

Child weight 2 years to 2 years and 6 months - Boys and girls norms

  • Girls: 12. 1 to 13.2 kg.
  • Boys: 12.6 to 13.6 kg.

The average weight of a two-year-old child is 12 kg for girls and 13 kg for boys. However, many children at this age weigh +/-3 kg above average, and this is completely normal. Be prepared that at the age of 2 to 3 years, the baby will add about 200 g per month.

Mental development of a child from 2 years to 2 years and 6 months

The mental development of a child from 2 years old makes it possible for parents to more clearly observe the developing character traits of the baby. The reactions of the child become more diverse, which indicates that he develops and learns different forms of response to certain situations. The child takes a role model from his parents and relatives and acquaintances whom he often sees.

The character of the child will be formed for many years, but now parents can support the development of some qualities and even correct them to make life easier for the child in society. Remember that character is formed in the first 3-5 years.

In the emotional sphere, the life of a two-year-old child becomes a little easier, on the one hand, as the baby begins to be more independent, but on the other hand, he still cannot do a lot of things himself, which causes a new storm of emotions.

The ability to wait a while or endure a little discomfort is greatly increased. The child is approaching the "crisis of three years", and the reaction to the parent's "no" or "no" can be very strong, but this does not mean that parents should not say these words. The main thing is that the bans should be consistent and predictable for the child: if you can’t take the phone today, then you can’t take it tomorrow either.

In this age period, after 2 years, it is important to form the boundaries of acceptable behavior:

  • The child must clearly understand when “it is impossible never”, in which - “it is impossible if ...”, and in which “it is possible”.
  • "It is possible" should sound more often from the lips of parents than "it is impossible".
  • These boundaries should be communicated by all adults with whom the child lives.

At this stage of development, the baby is still very strongly attached to his parents, especially to his mother, with whom he is in the same emotional field, and is very dependent on his mother's emotional state. It is important for a child to be accepted by parents, especially a mother, rejection is perceived as a "collapse of the world."

The kid begins to establish a qualitatively different contact with peers, with the participation of an adult, he can already begin to play with them.

The child is learning self-control, although there are still emotional outbursts during which he may hit, bite or throw a toy at someone. The kid loves to be in the center of attention, to fool around and imitate, to arouse interest. One of the periods in which the child goes through the understanding of what "boundaries" are. The process of assimilation of "mine" - "someone else's" begins. So, he can lend another baby a toy and immediately start demanding it back. Claiming another child's toy because they liked it.

Child care from 2 years to 2 years 6 months

Here I would like to emphasize the special importance of proper nutrition, because the diet of a two-year-old child is becoming more and more similar to the diet of older children.

For proper development, the baby should eat 5 times a day, preferably at intervals of 3-4 hours. Well, if children have a fixed meal time, then it is easier for the body to control the feeling of hunger and satiety.

Young children have a high energy requirement as a result of increased physical activity and body growth. Therefore, properly selected grain products should be the main source of energy.

A two-year-old can and should eat all types of grains (except children with celiac disease), his digestive system is old enough to cope with the digestion of such foods. Therefore, instant baby cereals at this age are not the best solution, but only a habit that should be changed.

Another food group that forms the basis of nutrition for young children is milk and dairy products. Two-year-olds should consume 2-3 servings of milk and dairy products. After all, they are the main source of healthy protein, as well as calcium.

Some experts believe that children 2 years of age and older should limit their intake of high-fat foods to protect them from future cardiovascular disease.

Vegetables and fruits are another important group. Small children are recommended to eat 150-200 g of fruit per day. It can be bananas, apples, persimmons, peaches, apricots (everything that contains a minimum amount of acid). Vegetables should be consumed with every meal - it can be boiled beets, carrots, potatoes, cabbage.

It is also worth paying attention to eating eggs, which are a source of iron, complete protein and nutrients such as choline, vitamin B, which are responsible for the proper functioning of the brain, affecting concentration, memory and learning.

A two-year-old child should eat fish and seafood 1-2 times a week, especially of marine origin, in addition to essential fatty acids, they contain iodine, which stimulates the cells of the immune system.

Another important point is that children in the second year of life may refuse to eat the offered food to the end. Do not force the child to eat, as this forms the wrong eating habits. Feeding a child should be based on a principle that must always be remembered: parents decide what their child will eat, and the child decides how much he will eat.

Digestion of newborns. Features of the digestion of infants

Caring for a baby implies not only love, but also an understanding of how the body of a small person works and what processes take place in it. This knowledge is necessary in order to correctly organize the nutrition of the baby, as well as respond to the nuances of his life without panic and surprise.

While the baby is waiting to be born in the womb, his digestive system is in a state of inactivity. The embryo receives nutrition through the placenta. As soon as a child is born, it becomes necessary to obtain nutrients in the traditional way for a person - through the mouth. The baby's mind already has a sucking reflex, but it needs to be "launched". That is why early (ideally in the first half hour of life) attachment of the baby to the mother's breast is so important. If you give a newborn a nipple first, then the muscles of the oral cavity will remember exactly its shape and the so-called "nipple" sucking will form. In the future, when breastfeeding, the mother will have problems - the child will injure the nipples or completely refuse the breast.

How to improve digestion in infants?

The volume of the stomach of a newborn is only 30 ml. When the baby begins to grow, the capacity of the stomach will also increase - at the age of 1 month it will be about 100 ml, at 3 months - 150 ml, at six months - 200 ml, by 1 year - 250 ml. Mom needs to understand that such a small organ cannot be overfilled. Overfeeding will stretch the walls of the stomach and will contribute to overeating in the future.

Breast milk (and in the early days colostrum, more nutritious, high in protein, very energetically valuable) is an ideal food for a baby. 10 ml of colostrum per feeding in the first days of life will fully satisfy the newborn's need for food. Together with milk, antibodies to many infectious diseases enter the baby's body (those that the mother had been ill in her life). Thus, the child receives a kind of vaccination. In addition, milk is the most easily digestible and easily digestible food. This is important, since the process of digestion in newborns is only being formed, and very few enzymes are produced in the stomach to digest food.

One of the important components of the digestive process is saliva. In a newborn, due to the weak development of the salivary glands in the oral cavity, there is little of it. Dry mucous membrane is very susceptible to minor damage and infection. In addition, antibodies (class A immunoglobulins) that protect it are not produced at all in the first month of life. Therefore, babies often develop thrush. With growing up, the production of saliva will increase, but the swallowing reflex will not form immediately, therefore, at 3-4 months, the child will experience frequent salivation. So that saliva does not irritate the skin, it must be wiped periodically.

The stomach of young children is horizontal until the child begins to walk. Food stays in it for an average of 2.5–3 hours. This must be taken into account when organizing intervals in feeding. Artificial formulas take longer to digest than breast milk - an average of 3-4 hours.

The intestines of a newborn are very long, and the muscles of the internal organs are still weak. That is why children in the first 3 months of life often experience constipation. Later the chair is normalized. Usually, children in the first months of life empty their intestines 2-4 times a day. By the end of the first year, 1-2 times a day is considered normal. Be prepared for the fact that in the first two days of life, thick, very dark-colored primordial feces will come out of the baby's intestines. This is meconium - it accumulated in the baby's body throughout the entire intrauterine development.
