Pampers Baby Dry | Helping Parents Reclaim Their Shuteye!

So I can say with theΒ utmost confidence that I’m happy to be out of the “baby phase.” Yes, there’s a lot toΒ appreciate about an infantβ€”especially theΒ second time around when you spend less timeΒ worrying about every little thing andΒ more time enjoying them before that phase passes before you know itβ€”but those first six months areΒ hard. Sporadic sleep schedules. Questionable mental health. It feels like a never-ending challenge, and then one dayΒ itΒ does end. It ends, and you’re suddenly breathing a bit easier, sleeping a bit better, and getting tricked into havingΒ more kids. (Parents of older kidsβ€”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 weΒ should do what we can to help build a better generation ofΒ parents thatΒ we were! We can teach them from our experiences. Reassure them when they feel they’re failing. And introduce them to betterΒ tools that’ll make parenting all that muchΒ easier.

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

Pampers Helps Plan the Perfect Baby Shower!

Won’t lieβ€”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 damnedβ€”I’m 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! β€” Our First Baby Shower β€” 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 schoolβ€”you only know so much, and you’ll wish you did things differently years down the road. Let’s take a look at Momsβ€”when asked, 90% of Moms wished they’d included more diapers in their registry.Β 40% of Moms wished they’d asked for diapers of differentΒ sizesβ€”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 youΒ otherwise, there’re some things you’ll need to learn for yourself.

Pampers | Touches of Love

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

With one son induced three weeks early and the other four days late, we were luckyβ€”parenting is stressful enough with a full-term baby! So I can’t imagine the struggles those dealing with premature childbirth go throughβ€”the days…Β weeksΒ 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 thisΒ criticalΒ 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!

What’s in a Box? β€” How the Baby Box Company Starts Parenthood Off RIGHT.

Take it from someone who’s already made it to Kid #2β€”you don’t need a whole heckuva lot to start your baby on the right track; heckβ€”other than a heap of diapers, wipes and some clothes to put them in, you could probably fit everything else you’d need in aΒ single box.

What's in a Box? β€” How the Baby Box Company Starts Parenthood Off RIGHT. β€” Baby Box Head-On ViewBorne from a Finnish tradition over 75 years in the making, the Baby Box Company’s done more than just give expectant mothers a box full of tools to help ease them into their new lifestyleβ€”it’s given these new babies their firstΒ bed, a move that’s said to have helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates!

What's in a Box? β€” How the Baby Box Company Starts Parenthood Off RIGHT. β€” The Baby Box with its ContentsLooking to share this innovation with the rest of the world, this past May The Baby Box Company announced that it’d be launching a universal Baby Box program in Ontario, giving outΒ the first of the 145,000 Baby Boxes it’ll distribute in the program’s first year starting August 2016! They’ll be available for free to all new and expecting Ontarian parents as long as they receive prenatal care and review the Ontario education syllabus created by local healthcare professionals on the Baby Box University. ItΒ also gives these new parents a great introduction to everything Pampers has to offer, who continue their ongoing relationship with TheΒ Baby Box CompanyΒ by supplying the diapers and wipes found in every box!

In fact, as a member of the Pampers Baby Panel, I got myΒ own Baby Box to review, so I should see for myself why it’s helpedΒ so many families who’re doing their best to figure things out in the early stages of parenthood.

What’s in a Box? Everything the Baby Box has to Offer!

What's in a Box? β€” How the Baby Box Company Starts Parenthood Off RIGHT. β€” Baby Box ContentsI’ve gotta sayβ€”even though we’re nearly through the baby’s first six months that the Baby Box’s designed for, I wasΒ thoroughly impressed by how much was packed inside! There was way too much for me to list it all here (okay; there werePampers’ Natural Clean Wipes; Pampers’ Newborn Swaddlers; onesies; an umbrella for the Baby Box; a sleeper; Antoinette Portis’Β Not a Box; a Halo SleepSack; sling; towels; hand towels; bibs; formula; baby thermometer; Love Child organics baby food; booties; bibs; Baby Box Company gift card; and a Baby Box University membershipβ€”are youΒ happy now?), but suffice it to say, I think thatΒ any new parent would beΒ thrilled to get something that’d help them spend less timeΒ fretting and more time just enjoying the new addition to their lives!

What's in a Box? β€” How the Baby Box Company Starts Parenthood Off RIGHT. β€” Baby in a Baby BoxIt takes a lot to raise a babyβ€”believe me, I’ve experienced it first-hand,Β twiceβ€”which makes it great that companies like theΒ Baby Box CompanyΒ and Pampers are working together to help out! I mean, the 125 years of history between the two justΒ might come in handy no matter whether you have 125 minutes, hours, orΒ days under your belt!

So the next time you have someone in your life who has a new family member imminent, think of getting them something theyΒ need instead of something that’s nice to look at, and get your hands on a Baby Box!

Good luck out there, fellow parents, and stay strongβ€”those little ones areΒ counting on you!

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 beforeβ€”when writing this post, I’d been thinking on what it must’ve been like to raise kids inΒ 1916, and the colour of my skin notwithstanding, I’m pretty sure I much rather be the ΓΌber-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 toβ€”the modern Dad’s been given the opportunity to rewrite the rule book and give everyone entirely new insights into what fathers canΒ 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 forΒ their generation.

Join Me at the Pampers ThanksBaby Twitter Party for Father's Day! β€” Twitter Party AdBut you don’t have to takeΒ my word for itβ€”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 heyβ€”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 β€” 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 prizesβ€”I see the opportunity to start shifting our expectations for the men we call Dads, and give them notΒ only an equal share of theΒ work needed to raise the kids of this worldβ€”but the awareness that theyΒ too play instrumental roles in developing the generation that’ll rock tomorrow.

I hope to see you thereβ€”I promise I’ll behave.

A little.

Until the next,
