As a mom, I make lots of promises to my children: “I promise we can go to the park.” “I promise I will love you forever.” “I promise to always be here when you need me.”

What about, “I promise to give you the very best that I can give”? That promise can hold true even when it comes to something as simple as the diapers we put on their little behinds.

Pampers and Walmart recently teamed up with the release of new Pampers Premium Care Diapers. Thanks to SheSpeaks and Pampers, I had the opportunity to test out these diapers on Carly and Sawyer.

I have to say, I am quite impressed with these diapers! I can’t get over how soft they are. Not only are they soft, but they are also absorbent. We call Sawyer our little “Super Soaker.” It seemed like every night, I was changing the crib sheets in the middle of the night because he had soaked through his diaper. That was until I made the switch to Pampers Premium Care Diapers! Now, he can make it all night long without soaking through! The extra absorb channels the diapers offer distribute the wetness evenly for up to 12 hours – making for a happy baby and an even happier Mommy! Because Sawyer has incredibly sensitive skin, there are several features in the diapers that make them perfect for him: 1. The Absorb Away Liner pulls wetness and messes away from baby’s skin. This helps keep him clean and dry, and the number of diaper rashes he’s gotten has decreased significantly! 2. The Breathable Material keeps the air circulating around baby’s skin, keeping him dry and rash free. 3. The are completely Hypoallergenic, perfect for even the most sensitive skin, like Sawyer’s.

Another thing I love is that the diapers are available at Walmart. That means I know I’m getting a great product at a great price. The diapers won’t break my budget, and I can grab them while I’m at Walmart getting everything else I need.

pampers swaddlers

As a mom, I have trusted Pampers Swaddlers diapers for all my babies and their little bums. They’re the softest, best diapers I’ve found for those tender little newborn behinds.

Now, Pampers Swaddlers are available up to size 5! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited about this. Having 2 little ones still in diapers, one in a size 5, and one in a size 3, I love that I can keep both of them in Swaddlers diapers now. And Carly, my youngest, will be able to stay in Swaddlers all the way through her years in diapers.

That means that Pampers Swaddlers can be there for all of her firsts… her first smile, her first tooth, her first step. With each new first Carly experiences, she can do them all in Pampers Swaddlers.

@Pampers Daylight Savings Sleep Tips #DDDivas #DivasSleep #Sponsored

Sample ReceivedDisclaimer: This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

pampers baby dry

The end of daylight savings time is tough – especially when you’ve got kids. While gaining that extra hour is fantastic for adults who need to catch up on sleep, it can throw a monkey wrench into the sleep cycles of our little ones. When they’re normally getting up at 6:30 in the morning, all of a sudden, they’re now getting up at 5:30. Less sleep for mom is never a good thing. While we might not need our sleep to be beautiful, most of us need it in order to be pleasant. (That’s true in my case, anyway.)

There are things you can do to adjust the time change for your little ones gradually so it’s not a huge adjustment all at once. (Please note, the tips I’m going to be sharing below are best for babies that are 5 months and older.)

Here are a few of my favorite tips from Kim West, LCSW-C, Sleep Lady Solutions, LLC on how to help your baby sleep better during time change:

  • Make sure that your children are well-napped during the day so that when the time change takes effect having a later-feeling bedtime isn’t as much of an issue. (Sticking to your daily routine as much as possible will really help baby sleep better at night. And don’t forget to get some fresh air every day!)
  • Make sure that you watch your baby for sleepy cues carefully. Make sure that you’re changing your baby’s diaper right before your child goes into the crib for naps or bedtime. (There is nothing more important than keeping baby dry all night. That’s why I’m so thankful for Pampers Baby Dry Diapers!)
  • To ensure that your children know when it’s time to sleep, rely on your established soothing bedtime routine.

For this review, I received a pack of Pamper’s Baby Dry Diapers and a super cute pair of pajamas from The Children’s Place. Look how sweet Carly looks in her new pajamas:

the children's place pajamas

I love the bold, bright colors on the PJs. But what I love even more, is what’s under the pajamas: her Pamper’s Baby Dry Diapers. We recently made the switch from Swaddlers to the Baby Dry diapers, and I love them! They keep Carly dry all night long, and I don’t have to get up in the middle of the night with her to change her (and her pajamas, and the sheets on the crib.) I love that they offer 12 hour protection, so she can sleep peacefully all night long.

Before I get to the fantastic little giveaway I have planned for you, I want to make sure you know all about the #PampersSleepChat Twitter Party. Trust me, you won’t want to miss this!

When: November 7th at 9pm EST.

Why? We’ll chat about how the end of Daylight Savings Time can affect sleep patterns & get tips on easing the transition from The Sleep Lady, Kim West.

What You Can Win:

  • $50 AMEX Gift Card, $25 Children’s Place Gift Card, Pampers product and book by Kim West.
  • $100 AMEX Gift Card, Pampers Product, series of books by Kim West
  • Grand Prize: $500 AMEX Card to purchase sleep items such as a new crib, video monitor, etc.

Pampers Gift of Sleep

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?!)

Pampers Gift of Sleep

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

For Baby:

  • 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.

Giving the Gift of Sleep

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.

win the gift of sleep

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:

I’ve given one mom the Gift of Sleep. Now, Pampers wants to give YOU the chance to win the gift of sleep, either for yourself or for a new mom in your life.

My Interview with Kerri Walsh {Thanks to @Pampers!}

One thing I love about my blog is that I get the opportunity to meet some fantastic people. Monday morning was definitely a highlight in my life, when I got the chance to sit down and interview Kerri Walsh – wife, mother of two, and 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist in beach volleyball.

Ok, ok. So we weren’t exactly sitting in the same room, but I did get to speak with her through the amazing power of technology – and my phone.

Kerri is amazing. She is so down to earth and just as sweet as the Tea the Southerners like to drink. I am still in awe at the fact that little old me got to talk one-on-one with her. {And I simply must mention just how jealous my daughter is. Kerri is someone that Ashley really looks up to, and after I had the opportunity to speak with Kerri, I think she’s an excellent role model for our daughters.}

I hope you’ll take a few moments and watch the video interview. {You won’t see me – just Kerri – but you’ll hear me ask all my questions and talk directly with her.}

She was so easy to talk to – I really could have talked all day! 🙂

What did you think of the interview? What questions would you have asked Kerri?

I am so thankful to Pampers for allowing me the chance to speak one-on-one with Kerri and ask her my questions. I had such a wonderful time, and I am just so honored to have been part of this.

Pampers Helps Families in Need

PampersIt’s hard to find companies that go above and beyond to help out families in need. But I have to say that Pampers does just that. Never before have I seen a company so committed to giving to families in need.

Their latest mission is to help out families in the US disaster regions.

Here, take a minute to read what it’s all about:

This is a very special mission. There have been many families impacted by the recent natural disasters across the U.S. As a result, affected parents are spending the majority of their time dealing with basic essentials, which leaves them little time to bond with and nurture their babies. With your support, Pampers wants to make their lives a little easier. Show your support by simply clicking the “I support” button on the Miracles Facebook app.

For every click of the “I support” button on the Miracles Facebook app, Pampers will donate one diaper, one pack of wipes, and one dollar* to Direct Relief International® to help babies in affected areas. For every story shared on the Miracles Facebook app, we will donate an additional two diapers, two packs of wipes, and two dollars* to Direct Relief International®.

All you have to do is go to the Miracles App on Facebook and click “I Support.” Then, if you’d like, you can enter to win a year’s supply of Pampers for your little one. They don’t ask you to donate money or put you through hours of ridiculous offers and surveys. You just have to click the I Support button and you’re done.

It only takes a second, and your support will help a family in need. Isn’t that worth just a few moments of your time?

Click here to show your support.

Pamper’s Little Miracle Mission Gifts Delivered!

Remember the post I put up back at the beginning of May about Pamper’s Little Miracle Mission?

I showed you all the stuff that I purchased – 4 packs of Pamper’s Swaddler Diapers, travel wipes cases, and some fabric. I was going to make 4 moms a custom covered travel wipes case to include with their pack of diapers.

Since I *finally* finished them up and got them delivered last week, I wanted to show you how they turned out:

Pampers packages
Aren’t they cute?! I made one for a mom of a boy, one for a mom of a girl, and two gender neutral ones.

Last week, I called up my friend (who also happened to be my Labor Nurse this time around), and asked her if I could swing by and drop them off. She said yes, so I loaded up the truck and headed over. She told me later that night that they were a huge hit! Yay!

I had so much fun making these, and I really hope the new moms enjoy them.

Have you done anything special to “pay it forward” to a new mom? I’d love to hear about it!

Pampers Winner Announced

Because this giveaway was different than most other giveaways I host on this site, I wanted to announce the winner differently as well.

Recently, Pampers contacted me and asked if I would pay it forward to someone in my community, and then ask one of my readers to do the same. To read the entire post and all of the comments, click here: Pamper’s Little Miracle Mission

There weren’t a whole lot of entries, but the ones posted were all compelling. I really do have such a great group of readers that want to reach out and help their community.

After an entire weekend of debate, back and forth, and asking advice from family members and friends, I finally picked a winner.

Congratulations to Cheryl W. with comment #13. You are the winner of the $50 GC to help pay it forward in your community!

Here’s the comment that Cheryl left:

13 Cheryl W.

We were hit with a tornado, in Tushka Oklahoma, on March 14th. Homes were leveled, our children lost their schools and people are without a job. In my daughter’s class, there is a girl who is just 16, pregnant and her family lost their home, vehicles and job. We would love to be able to donate diapers and wipes to her and hopefully share the love of Christ with her in such a difficult time.

Thank you, again, to all who entered. I really wish I had a gift card to give each one of you. I hope you soon get the opportunity to pay it forward to your friends and neighbors.

Pampers’ Little Miracle Mission {Giveaway}

This giveaway will end Friday, May 20th at 11:59pm EST.

In celebration of its 50th birthday, Pampers is recognizing how much parenting has changed over the years, and is sharing their belief that every baby is a little miracle that deserves to be celebrated, supported and protected, by unveiling its Little Miracle Mission campaign – a program that delivers acts of kindness to miracles and their families while encouraging parents to support others.

Direct Link for Feed Readers to Pampers Commercial.

Pampers recently kicked off the Little Miracle Missions campaign by delivering a giant act of support –donating care packages to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) across the country.  Celebs Joey Lawrence , Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos and LaLa Anthony were on-hand in New York City to personally deliver a care package and thank you basket to Mt. Sinai Hospital and their staff.

Now, Pampers wants to get YOU in on the action, and making a difference. It’s so easy to do. Just go to the Pampers Facebook Page, hit “like” and then go to the Miracle Missions tab and commit to the mission by clicking the “I Want to Help” button. With Mission 1 (going on through Mother’s Day), Pampers will respond by giving baby showers to expectant mothers nationwide. (By the way, anyone who pledges is automatically entered to win a year’s supply worth of Pampers diapers and wipes. Wouldn’t that be a great bit of Karma?)

Mission 1 is easy:
Your mission is to help make Mother’s Day special by congratulating an expectant or new mom on her little miracle. Give a mom a smile, offer her your seat, buy flowers for a mom-to-be, send her a gift or surprise her with a hand-written note; something to remind her that it’s her special day.

Just commit to doing something nice for an expectant mom in your community for Mother’s Day, and you’ve done your part. Pampers will do their part by giving baby showers to 1,000 expectant mothers across the country. That’s a lot of babies getting the help they deserve!

Pampers asked me if I would do something for an expectant mom in my community who needed it, and they sent me a $50 American Express Gift Card to help me make a difference. Since we live in a small town, I wanted to do something that could help out more than one new mom, and bring a smile to several faces.

So, I headed to the store where hubby works and purchased 4 packs of Pampers Swaddlers, Size 1, and 4 travel wipes cases. Then, I headed to the Walmart we have near us that still sells fabric, and I grabbed enough fabric to create 4 custom designed travel wipes cases. I will wrap them all together in a nice little bundle, include a handwritten note offering my congratulations, and I will take them to our local hospital and have the Labor and Delivery staff deliver these gifts to 4 new moms in our area. My goal is to make those moms smile and let them know how special they are.

Here’s the stuff I purchased:

Pay it Forward

((To See how they turned out, click here: Pamper’s Little Miracle Mission Packages Delivered!))

Pampers has also asked me to invite my readers to help pay it forward to an expecting mom (or moms!), and they’re giving me one $50 American Express Gift Card to help you do just that!

Some other ideas include using the money to purchase diapers for a family who could use them, using the money to prepare meals for a family, or even using the money to host a larger fundraiser for a family. Let your creativity flow, because you’ll get $50 to make a difference!

Now, this giveaway will work very different from my other giveaways, because of the circumstances behind the giveaway. There will be no extra entries in this giveaway, because I will be judging the entries and selecting the best “pay it forward” entry that will make the biggest impact to an expectant mom. The giveaway is open to the US only. And remember, by entering this giveaway, you are promising to Pay-it-Forward to someone else instead of keeping the gift card for your own use.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to how to enter.

To Enter
Leave a comment below and tell me how you want to use this $50 American Express Gift Card to celebrate, support or protect a new little miracle in your community. You can post as much or as little detail as you’d like, but remember, I have to judge and select the best idea for a random act of kindness, and that person will receive the gift certificate to carry out their wish.

Entries will be accepted through May 20th at 11:59 PM, and the winner will be announced on Monday, May 23rd in a special post.

I look forward to reading your entries and finding out how you want to pay it forward to your community!

Disclaimer: I was contacted by a representative from American Pop Social Media Marketing on behalf of Pampers. I received a $50 gift card to help give back to a new or expectant mother in my community. The sponsor is also donating a second $50 gift certificate to help one of my readers do the same for their community. I was not compensated for this post in any way.
