Getting a Good Dose of Shuteye Thanks to Pampers Baby Dry!

Let’s be real—every parent dreams of the day they aren’t dealing with diapers anymore. I mean, you get all sorts of kids in those early years—the ones totally okay wearing a soiled diaper even though it’s clearly not a good idea. The ones who freak out over a wet diaper, even when it’s spilling what they’re drinking that caused it. The kids who prefer going “au naturel” and can’t wait to get it off so they can streak through the house. The truly bold who’ll throw a diaper at your head in the midst of a tantrum. You could have any of a number of children in those early years, but at least you know one thing—no matter what kind of kid you’ve got in diapers, Pampers has you covered!

Getting a Good Dose of Shuteye Thanks to Pampers Baby Dry! — Holding a New Baby

For more than fifty years, parents have trusted Pampers, which undergo extensive testing with paediatricians, dermatologists and parents to meet the needs of their most important customers —the babies they’d give anything for. And that trust’s there for a good reason, too—as part of the Procter & Gamble company, Pampers stands as the #1 selling diaper worldwide, with more than 25 million babies across 100 countries wearing them every day.

As you probably know—they don’t just do diapers; with wipes and training pants as well, they have a number of products that’ll offer the comfort and protection your baby needs for every stage of their development. And right at the core of that development—no matter who your child is—is one solitary thing: sleep.

Help Parents Reclaim Their Shuteye with the New and Improved Pampers Baby Dry!

So I can say with the utmost confidence that I’m happy to be out of the “baby phase.” Yes, there’s a lot to appreciate about an infant—especially the second time around when you spend less time worrying about every little thing and more time enjoying them before that phase passes before you know it—but those first six months are hard. Sporadic sleep schedules. Questionable mental health. It feels like a never-ending challenge, and then one day it does end. It ends, and you’re suddenly breathing a bit easier, sleeping a bit better, and getting tricked into having more kids. (Parents of older kids—I see y’all with your trickery!)

But just as we strive to do better for our children than our parents could for us, perhaps we should do what we can to help build a better generation of parents that we were! We can teach them from our experiences. Reassure them when they feel they’re failing. And introduce them to better tools that’ll make parenting all that much easier.

And what kind of parent would you be if that list didn’t include Pampers Baby Dry?

New parents, pay attention—all of Best Buy Canada’s baby gear is on sale ’til July 6th! So you can stock up on the things that’ll help keep your baby happy, healthy and safe as you introduce them to the world!

Best Buy — They Sell WAY More Than Just GADGETS!

Best Buy got into the baby gear game some time ago, offering a full range of products rivalling the selection you’d find at stores that do nothing but babies. Cribs, monitors, clothing and more, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what Best Buy carries!

TRY YOUR LUCK: Put Your Car Seat Woes at Ease with the diono radian rXT!

When diono dropped a line to gauge my interest in reviewing the diono radian rXT and the related products, I didn’t quite know how I’d approach it.

Put Your Car Seat Woes at Ease with the diono radian rXT! — radian rXT modesSee, the car seat is the natural nemesis of the new parent. The straps are never tight enough, babies never enjoy being in them as long as you need, and installing them requires strength paralleled only by world-class weightlifters. You never get it quite right on the first try and forever find yourself adjusting ’til your kids outgrow them.

But they’re necessary!

Sure, we somehow survived an era where simply shoving your kids into the back seat was an acceptable practice, but we’re also the same species who once smoked cigarettes in delivery rooms. And treated blood disorders with leeches. Heck, we once thought sugary soda was the key to losing weight. Just because we often do things one way doesn’t mean we can’t do it better, so we must continually expect more from the things we use, and yes—that means our car seats too.

TRY YOUR LUCK: Planning the Perfect Baby Shower with Pampers!

Won’t lie—if I didn’t have Sarah making sure our wedding and baby registries were on point, our kids would be walking around naked and our dining room flatware wouldn’t be nearly as nice. Stereotypes be damned—I’m just not that good a planner, and you need to dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s whether you’re throwing the shower… or you’re the one in the spotlight!

Planning the Perfect Baby Shower with Pampers! — Our First Baby Shower — Gifts
As you can see, we didn’t get much in the way of diapers at our first baby shower.

Figuring out the gifts you’ll need at a shower’s a lot like planning your career path when you’re still in high school—you only know so much and you’ll just wish you did things differently years down the road. Let’s just take a look at Moms—when asked, 90% of Moms wished they’d included more diapers in their registry. 40% of Moms wished they’d asked for diapers of different sizes—babies grow, after all!

Just like with pretty much every parent in the history of the trade, these are but examples of things you learn as you go, and no matter how much your peers and parents tell you otherwise, there’re some things you’ll need to learn for yourself.

GIVEAWAY: Feed Your Kids the RIGHT Way With Baby Gourmet!!!

Feed Your Kids the RIGHT Way With Baby Gourmet!!! — Jen Carlson in the GardenThis is Jen. Jen’s the mom of two children. Two children she loves so much that she’d never feed them anything she wouldn’t eat herself. Jen wouldn’t always find that easy, though—like many parents, Jen found herself frustrated by the poor quality and lacking content of baby food available in grocery stores. She wanted food that was nutritious, delicious, and without any of the unnecessary additives she knew better than to eat as an adult.

It’s a good thing, then, that Jen’s the founder of Baby Gourmet, Canada’s leading organic baby food brand!

Touches of Love — a Pampers Parable for World Prematurity Day

November 17th is World Prematurity Day, honouring premature infants and the people who give them a fighting chance!

With one son induced three weeks early and the other four days late, we were lucky—parenting is stressful enough with a full-term baby! So I can’t imagine the struggles those dealing with premature childbirth go through—the days… weeks spent waiting to take that baby home. Advances in medical science help babies survive younger and smaller than ever before, so parents need a special kind of help to make it through this critical period in their baby’s development!

Which is why Pampers introduced their Preemie Size P-3 diapers, three times smaller than newborn diapers to meet the needs of premature babies!

Join Me at the Pampers #ThanksBaby Twitter Party for Father’s Day!

With Father’s Day on the approach, I’ve found myself thinking about fatherhood and everything I’ve learned about this lifestyle so far. It’s far different now than it’s ever been before—when writing this post, I’d been thinking on what it must’ve been like to raise kids in 1916, and the colour of my skin notwithstanding, I’m pretty sure I much rather be the über-involved Dad expected of me today than the unemotional and detached fathers who were the norm of generations past.

It’s still something the world needs to get used to—the modern Dad’s been given the opportunity to rewrite the rule book and give everyone entirely new insights into what fathers can be. Now that we’re doing things like sharing parental leaves with our maternal counterparts and forming our own groups to discuss fatherhood and the emotional perils that come with it, it’s a new day as we strive to raise kids who’ll redefine parenthood for their generation.

Join Me at the Pampers ThanksBaby Twitter Party for Father's Day! — Twitter Party AdBut you don’t have to take my word for it—this Wednesday, June 15th, you can join me and a number of Dads across North America for Pampers’ #ThanksBaby Twitter Party for Father’s Day, where we can reflect on the laughs, challenges and incredible feelings that come with being a Dad! (And hey—with plenty of prizes available, including a $250 Visa gift card as the top takeaway, why would you want to miss it???)

The Pampers #ThanksBaby Twitter Party — Let’s Change the Conversation One Tweet at a Time!

Changing how the world sees Dads won’t happen overnight. The stories we know best all started as mere ideas and took root as people kept talking about them. You may see a Twitter Party with prizes—I see the opportunity to start shifting our expectations for the men we call Dads, and give them not only an equal share of the work needed to raise the kids of this world—but the awareness that they too play instrumental roles in developing the generation that’ll rock tomorrow.

I hope to see you there—I promise I’ll behave.

A little.

Until the next,

Celebrating Mother’s Day with Pampers’ #ThanksBaby!

While I’m obviously no expert (Y chromosomes pretty much exclude me from experiencing the… “miracle” (?) of childbirth first-hand), I’ve learned a lot about motherhood through everything I’ve seen Sarah go through in our nearly 3-year journey as parents so far.

As soon as that first baby hits the scene, they teach you how to grow, learn and love more than you ever thought possible. There’re plenty of moments when you don’t know where you’ll find the strength to make it through the day, but they’re balanced out by profound moments of happiness that’re hard to describe when you don’t have a little “you” to look after.

Pampers is celebrating more than 50 years of parents relying on their products to care for their babies’ happy, healthy development with a new #ThanksBaby video, capturing the moment when a baby’s born and perhaps the most unpredictable journey humanly possible starts its course. For me, though, even though I’m still figuring it out like I’m doing it for the first time each and every day, I can barely remember life before my boys, and with it this good, I’m okay with that.

Celebrating Mother's Day with Pampers' #ThanksBaby! — The Palmer BoysSo if you want to celebrate the Moms in your life—and maybe even win some sweet Pampers prizes in the process—why not join me with a cast of other North American influencer parents for Pampers’ #ThanksBaby Twitter Party on Wednesday, May 4th @ 9 PM EST? An RSVP is required before joining, so make sure you let us know well in advance if you plan to get in on the action! I look forward to seeing you there! ????

#ThanksBaby — Our Lives Wouldn’t be the Same Without You.

When a baby is born, a Mom is born, and that in itself is cause for celebration. The very act draws you into a world full of changes—you start with a little bundle devoid of words, but showering you with unconditional love as they make sense of the world around them, and though the journey ahead’s shaped by equal parts joy, challenges, and the emotions that come with the territory, I think many Moms—and parents in general agree that they wouldn’t trade it for the world.

See y’all Wednesday—if you’ve never done a Twitter party with me, I promise: you’re in for something else entirely.

Until the next, I remain,

GIVEAWAY: A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 3 — Celebrating the Holidays with Pampers’ #PeaceOnEarth!

To my new readers in Internetland, you may not know that we’re expanding our family next month with another little boy to call our son. While I’ve admittedly been so wrapped up with family, work and my #BloggerLife to think very much on what life will look like with two kids, there’s one thing I know without a doubt from my two years of parenting so far — raising a child is no simple affair, and you’d better be prepared, because they come with a price tag attached almost upon exiting the womb!

But for those of you in the early stages of parenthood, maybe we can ease that sting a little with today’s prize for a Case Cringle Christmas!

Among the various other hats I wear as the blogger behind CaseyPalmer.com, one I recently picked up was joining the Pampers Baby Panel as a brand ambassador, exploring everything the brand stands for and what it can do to help parents in an age where one of the oldest gigs in the book is more confusing than ever.

A Case Cringle Christmas, Day 3 — Celebrating the Holidays with Pampers' #PeaceOnEarth! — Pampers Baby Panel Prize KitAs part of the welcome package, Pampers surprised us with a delivery of enough diapers, wipes and Ivory Snow laundry detergent to last both the boys for a bit, and I can’t express enough how good it feels to know you’ll have one less errand to deal with in those first few weeks where all you’re trying to do is survive!

But enough about me… let’s talk about you.
