The Gift of Sleep from Pampers & a Giveaway! Ends 10/26

I can remember it like it was yesterday.  My husband and I simultaneously jumping out of bed in the middle of the night to care for our fussy newborn.  First we’d check to make sure she was dry, wasn’t hungry, and that everything was right with her sleeping conditions (no hairs wrapped around her toes, etc.).  Then one of us rocked her while the other one searched the internet (seriously, what did parents do without it?!) for a sleeping solution.  After we gave her tummy drops it was time to hold her in just the right position till she felt comfy again.  This is the point where the one who wasn’t holding the baby would sprawl out on the nursery floor for a few minutes of shut eye.

Fast forward two years and now both parents wake up early in the morning to a crying child (or a singing child usually, our girl is happy), dragging ourselves out of bed to change a toddler who has peed through her diaper.  One tosses the pjs and sheets into the wash and heads for a shower while the other one starts breakfast for the family.

We’ve tried limiting her drinks in the evening, going up a size or two in diapers, trying the expensive overnight diapers, and well, sadly the truth is we’ve just made peace with waking up early 3 or 4 nights out of the week.  Hey, at least a load of laundry is done before we would regularly get up!

Pampers had a better solution in mind.  They’ve came out with TWO new diapers and I’m excited about both of them.

{Quick disclosure: 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.  This post contains affiliate links.}

Pampers New Diapers

The first new type of diaper is a new absorbent Pampers Cruisers.  These are supposed to hold 12 hours of wetness.  Our family is more than a little excited about these!!

The second new diaper isn’t exactly new, but they’re extending the sizes that the Pampers Swaddlers comes in.  Now they’re available all the way to size 5.  Isn’t that nice?  I’ve always loved the comfort and softness of the Swaddlers and couldn’t understand why they couldn’t keep that softness an option as the child grows.  I guess I wasn’t the only one who thought that.  Thank you, Pampers for hearing the desires of moms and dads and doing something about it!

Pampers sent me on a mission.  They provided me with a $100 gift card to buy the supplies to make a gift basket and give the “Gift of Sleep” to a family I know.

My mind raced as I thought through the numerous pregnant women I know and then I remembered one friend who just gave birth to a sweet baby boy.  He wasn’t even a week old yet!  With my $100 in hand I went in search of supplies for my basket.

I realize I could have given her a blanket, slippers, and candles but chances are she already owns those and already has her favorite brands of each.  I thought about cozy baby clothes, swaddlers, or a sound machine but since this is her second son I knew she already had those.  What I decided on was beauty products for a time-rushed, sleep-deprived mama who just wants to feel pretty.

Care Package Idea

There’s no denying that having a newborn will turn your life upside down and you’ll have learn to temporarily manage without a full night’s sleep.  I still believe that those tired mamas want to look their best for themselves, for their husbands, and for those who come to visit…at least, I know I did.

Senna Lipgloss

I chose a Senna lip gloss which contains two shimmery shades I thought would look great on her.  She can toss this in her diaper bag so it’s always an arms reach away.

The blue tube (pictured above) is Naturopathica’s Aloe Replenishing Gel.  This is a miracle product that reduces redness and inflammation while restoring collagen.  Ideal for those mornings when you’re not sure if it’s 8am or 8pm.

The orange box (also pictured above) is a wonderful product from Ole Henriksen.  It’s their Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Booster.  Here’s a description from the Sephora website, “Formulated…to support natural collagen production, brighten, and minimize fine lines, this must-have serum defends from environmental aggressors and free radical damage, leaving skin healthy and protected. ”  A quick solution to brighten your skin and a refreshing orange scent to boost your mood.

Julep Evie Nail Polish

Last but not least in this beauty bag from Vera Bradley, is a Julep nail polish that I got to name!  This color, Evie, looks great on fingers or toes for the perfect shimmery combination of red and pink.

Pampers Sensitive Wipes

Along with two packs of Pampers’ new diapers, I threw in a box of my favorite baby wipes, Pampers Sensitive wipes.  They’re actually the only wipes I’ll use.  They’re thin, easy to maneuver, soft, and have a pleasant scent.

New Mom Care Package

I added all the goodies into this reusable canvas bag that would be great to house baby blankets or other items in the new baby’s room.

Pampers Care Package Contents

I added a little fun crinkle cut paper to the gift bag and we we’re off to deliver our care package to the new mom.

Delivering Care Package

As I should have assumed, the new mom, Sara, didn’t want her picture taken but her husband and son didn’t mind being included in this photo I took.  Their son, our daughter, and my husband were playing dominoes in the floor while I was able to catch up with the new mom and her darling little baby Austin.

***Quick update about Sara and her family.  Without going into much detail I just want to say that it looks like Sara’s father will probably go home to meet his Heavenly Father soon.  Please keep her family in your prayers.  Thank you!***
