Now that we’ve had two children, I can certainly attest to the need for baby products that are not only affordable, but high quality and comparable to more expensive national brands. Sometimes many of those necessary baby products can be found in new or unlikely places.
In recent years, ALDI has definitely stepped up their game, adding more organic, gluten free, and even grassfed beef products to their stores. I’ve also seen an article or two just this year on ingredients that ALDI plans to eliminate from their stores and products they carry altogether!
The Little Journey line is one of their newest additions and I have to say, it’s pretty great. I took the boys with me on a quick trip to ALDI to pick up snacks one afternoon and we were able to see the display. I really like that the display is so prominent in the store closest to us, as it means you can quickly run in and get what you need without having to travel the entire store or meander around wasting time. And we all know how precious time can be when you need something for babies!
In our box, there was a good sized bottle of baby wash, sample diaper packs, puffs, a fruit pouch, and a coupon for formula. Since we don’t use any formula with our littles, I opted to leave the coupon as is. Here’s our spread.
The munchies and fruit pouch arrived at a great time. We’ve definitely been practicing baby led solids (link here) lately and these were great snacks for him to try during breakfast and lunch. Plus, the products seem quite comparable to national brands, but at a much lower cost, making them quite affordable.
He’s even had them as a snack at night and he enjoys them. I even let him ‘choose’ which one he’d like to eat. There doesn’t seem to be a favorite just yet. I think he’s just happy to have some food like the rest of us.
As for the fruit pouch, well he likes making a mess with it. Turtle Boy doesn’t take too kindly to me trying to spoon feed him. So, I generally just put food on his tray. This usually means a big mess, but it also allows him to experiment much better. Trust me, though, he gets plenty of tastes from licking his hands. And, all the tasting and mess making makes him incredibly happy! By the way, what is it with babies loving the mess?
I first tried the diapers out when we took a quick trip out of town for a bit of shopping. Hun needed a few new things for work, so off we went. I didn’t realize I’d grabbed the size 2 diapers until we got where we were going. But, since I knew we were going to be out for quite awhile, I didn’t pack any other diapers, so on it went. But, it fit quite well. In fact, I like the way the size 2s fit Turtle Boy more than the size 3s. The diapers are listed by weight, just like other diaper brands, but these worked well. Turtle Boy didn’t leak in any way and he certainly seemed quite comfortable.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention their baby wash. It has such a nice clean scent and a little really goes a long way.
Turtle Boy’s skin hasn’t reacted to the soap and even Monkey Boy enjoys squirting it into his hand or towel for washing! I like that it does come with a handy pump dispenser. I really don’t like having to fiddle with bottles when I’m washing the boys, so being able to just use one hand to get soap is really helpful.
Overall, I’d say the ALDI Little Journey baby products are definitely worth their small price. I found them to be comparable to national brands, as I mentioned, but yet so much more affordable.
Did you know ALDI had baby products? If not, are you willing to try them out? If you have already tried them, what do you think?
