Babies are such a life changer. It does not matter if you are having your first baby or if you have had a baby before, when a new baby makes their debut, everything changes. I have found that even after 3 babies, there are still surprises and things that change our lives. One of the biggest things that parents with a new baby face is the lack of sleep. I have a friend who has a 3 week old baby in the home. This is her and her husbands second baby, but their older child is 11, so it is like starting all over again. Everything for her is new, she is constantly telling me how she did not remember certain things being the way they are now, when she had her oldest child. Another thing that she and her husband have is sleep deprivation, lol. I feel so bad for her, because she has asked me when she will be able to sleep again. Well, I know that with 3 kids, the answer is soon. I mean, she might not get the sleep she is aiming for, but as the baby gets older, sleep will come. She is the type that can not seem to get those naps in during the day, like everyone suggests when the baby is sleeping. So, when I was given the chance to help her with the Pampers Give The Gift Of Sleep campaign, I knew I could try to help her out! First of all, when it comes to baby, there are diapers, and they fill up. I know that when sleep does come, you do not want to be awoken by a baby who is soaking wet due to their diaper being over filled. When I was sent the new Pampers diapers to review, I saw right away that these diapers are perfect for any parent with babies. I mean, with the 12 hour protection, a parent can get some sleep along with baby, at night! With the Pampers Baby Dry, you get the 12 hour protection with the “Ultra Absorb” core, which helps with 95% of those night time overloads! I was very impressed with the fact that the Baby Dry also are 15% more absorbent than previously. Along with them being more absorbent than before you also have new designs on them which are fun, and with the snug and stretchy sides as well as colored tabs, you get that peace of mind that these diapers will hold up and stay in place! Another plus is that you can get the Pampers Baby Dry in sizes 2-5! The other diapers that I was sent, which is the diapers I have used for when my own kids were newborns, is the Pampers Swaddlers. I enjoyed having that wetness indicator so that I knew when my babies were wet, and I also enjoyed using them because they are the softest Pampers baby diapers! I know that parents can appreciate that the Pampers Swaddlers contain a “Absorb Away Liner”, which helps to keep baby dry, which in hand gives new parents a little more sleep, and with the Pampers Swaddlers, you can now buy them up to size 5! For me, when I had my kids, knowing that Pampers is the #1 choice in hospitals, including the hospital where I had each of my babies, helped ease my mind.
Aside from giving my friend some Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Dry diapers to help her when it comes to sleep, I also got her a great pack of products, which can help baby sleep a little better and in hand help my friend and her husband catch a few more Z’s! To find out what the issue was when it came to sleeping I found that she and her husband were co-sleeping and that they were so cautious of the babies sleep, from blankets to rolling in the bed. I know that this is a common issue among new parents, being scared of accidentally rolling on baby, but also wanting baby next to you so that you can keep a close eye on them. So, I had found my mission when it came to mission sleep! I decided to find products that could help everyone sleep a little better.
I found that getting a bottle warmer, a Halo Sleepsack Swaddle, a Summer Infant Rest Assured Sleeper and a soft baby blanket was the way to go!
Since they do prefer to co-sleep, I found that the Rest Assured Sleeper was a great option. It not only allows baby to sleep in the bed, but baby has their own little cot, that gives them head to toe protection from parental roll-overs. With the Tommee Tippee bottle warmer, it can save time, which the way I see it, that time saved can be put towards sleep. Then with the Halo SleepSack Swaddle, baby can sleep better since they are secured in a swaddle. I have enjoyed using swaddlers with my own babies. I found that with my babies, they slept a lot better and a lot longer, giving me spurts of sleep in there as well! I added a cute, soft and cuddly blanket in the pack as well, so they can wrap my little friend up when they are relaxing with her and she can stay cute and cozy!
In all, my friend and her husband were very surprised and grateful for the pack of products I surprised them with, and they were also very pleased with the Pampers Baby Dry and the Pampers Swaddlers that I gave them, which in all, can help everyone sleep a little better! Well, to help with sleep when it comes to the new baby, Pampers would like to Give The Gift Of Sleep to one of my amazing readers by giving them a prize pack that includes a $50 gift card as well as some other great products!
