I recently had the opportunity to give “The Gift of Sleep” to a new mom in my community thanks to Double Duty Divas and Pampers. What an honor – and what fun I had!
First, I had to think of a mom who had recently given birth and I felt could use the gift of sleep. Having just given birth to my seventh baby this past February, I understand exactly what the gift of sleep could mean to a mom.
My mind immediately went to a sweet woman that I had the opportunity to meet through my local MOPS group. She recently gave birth to her 4th child, a sweet little boy named Jaxon. (Talk about a cutie!) I knew that with 4 children under the age of 9, Christy would appreciate the gift of sleep.)
Pampers sent me a $100 Visa Gift Card to put together my version of “The Gift of Sleep.” So many ideas started running through my mind, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had shopping for Christy, her husband Allan, and their new baby Jaxon. I purchased a bunch of items and put them all into a reusable tote. (After all, what mom doesn’t love somewhere to store stuff?!)
Want to know what was included in the gift basket?
For Mom & Dad:
- Large soft, snuggly blanket
- His & Hers Fuzzy Slippers
- His & Hers Mugs
- Sleepytime Tea
- Soothe & Sleep Bubble Bath
- Lavender Scented Oil with a vase and decorative reeds
- Pampers Swaddlers (of course!)
- Fuzzy Elephant Sleep Sack
- Soft & Cuddly Elephant Blanket Pal
- Calming Baby Bath & Lotion
- Baby Bedtime Washcloths
I wrapped the tote with a large bow, and headed over to Christy’s house to deliver her gift.
When I arrived to deliver the gift, I discovered that my timing could not have been more perfect. Christy’s husband had been nominated for a very prestigious award, and they were preparing to leave for an overnight trip to attend a special banquet. It was going to be their first night away from baby Jaxon. I’m hoping the items in the basket helped calm them while they were away, and that the items for Jaxon helped him sleep through the night for his caregivers.
It was such a treat to be able to spoil another mom with this gift, and I am so thankful for Double Duty Divas and Pampers for allowing me to do just that.
Pampers knows that sleep is important to moms, and that moms crave a diaper that provides superior overnight protection. It’s just no fun when your baby wakes up in the middle of the night soaked. 🙁 So, Pampers has taken what they know, and they’ve designed a diaper that provides up to 12 hours of protection. No more 3am wake-up calls from a soaking wet baby! Be sure to check out the new and improved Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Dry diapers.
I also want to encourage you to get to know Pampers on a social level by checking them out in the following ways:
