Give The Gift Of Sleep With Pampers- With A Giveaway

Pampers in my opinion, is the best brand of diapers out there. By interviewing over 9,000 moms about what was important for their baby, Pampers found the number one unmet need is a diaper that provides superior overnight dryness.  Pampers incorporated this firsthand insight, as well as the brand’s deep understanding of baby and baby’s needs, to design a diaper that both mom and baby can count on for up to 12 hours of overnight protection. Recently I had the chance to work with Pampers on a campaign. I received Pampers diapers and $100 gift card to give me the opportunity to give the “Gift of Sleep” to a family or baby in my community.  I had the perfect person in mind. Little Normans mom. I babysit for her every week. She is pretty much a single mom.
I chose a few items I knew she could use for the baby. Aveeno Baby oatmeal lotion, as well as Aveeno Baby Oatmeal Shampoo. He has been sick lately so I bought a nifty Extergen Thermomoter so she can scan his head without waking him up at night. I also bought her some Nuby Natural Touch bottles. She is trying to break him from breastfeeding. This will help her get a nights sleep as well. She is a HUGE Tennessee fan so I bought her a Tennessee Snuggie!! She can cuddle up with the little guy in it. His mommy is also pregnant again and I bought her some Preggie Pops to ease that morning sickness. I handed her the gift card and told her to use what is left to pamper herself- and I would watch him overnight one weekend for free!  She cried and thanked me so much! I put everything in a reusable tote so she could re-use for anything she wanted as well.The diapers helped her as well! The little man is not big enough for the size 4 but we could use the size 3 Pampers Swaddlers! 

Pampers Swaddlers are their SOFTEST diaper! They offer 12+ hours of overnight protection and have a wetness indicator to let mom know baby needs changed. Pampers Swaddlers  is now available through size 5 so babies can stay with the Swaddlers they LOVE for longer! They have an absorb away liner to help keep baby dry. All though we did not get to try Pampers Baby Dry because he is not big enough- I will tell you about them anyway! They also offer 12 hours of overnight protection (see a trend here?). Dry night means baby will more likely be more rested, less fussy and
more contented the next day! Visit the Pampers website to learn more about them! Overall, I am so happy that I was able to participate in this campaign to give back! It felt great and I really do need to do this more often. Visit Pampers on their social media to stay up to date on the latest.

  7. It's important not to overwhelm yourself. You only have so much energy during the day. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

  8. My personal opinion for mommy to be able to sleep would be, one, of course rest while baby rests! You will both have a little more comfort and patience.. secondly, I've always fed and bathed my babies at their latest feeding, closest to midnight. If baby's skin is okay to it, use the bedtime bath and a nice infant massage with the lotion, combined with a warm bottle... it's sheer bliss for you and baby!

  48. My advice is to play music in the baby's room. The background noise will help them sleep and get used to other noises that may go on in the house such as a dishwasher or washing machine.
