Pampers...giving back the gift of SLEEP! #DDDivas #DivasSleep #sponsored #Giveaway


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. 


Let's think for a moment....think back to the time when your firstborn was just a baby. What was the most difficult adjustment you had to make? For me, sleep was definitely different. I couldn't sleep a full 8...or even 6, or 4 hours in a row. My sleep was broken, and by the time baby fell asleep there was just so much to do that I often didn't even get a chance to get the sleep that I probably could have...but then once you do finally fall asleep, the baby wakes up again. The baby's hungry and likely soiled and uncomfortable as well.

By interviewing over 9,000 moms about what was important for their baby, Pampers found the number one unmet need is a diaper that provides superior overnight dryness.  Pampers incorporated this firsthand insight, as well as the brand’s deep understanding of baby and baby’s needs, to design a diaper that both mom and baby can count on for up to 12 hours of overnight protection. All Pampers diapers now have the 12 hours of protection, including their NEW Swaddlers in up to size 5! 

Twelve hours of overnight protection may mean that baby is more comfortable and that baby *may* sleep just a tad bit longer- and yes, that tad bit can make a huge difference (at least to this mom)!

Pampers is making this their gift of sleep to parents everywhere... and Pampers have given me the chance to give the gift of sleep to a family in my community. I was given a gift card with the mission of helping this family relax and hopefully get a little more sleep. 

I chose a family I know with a baby that was born just a week or so after Orrin. They are first time parents, so I know that sleep is something that is definitely missing in these first precious months. 

I decided to head out and find some items that I thought would help them all relax and hopefully get some more rest. Here's what I found.


For baby, we have some lavender baby wash and lotion as well as a sweet lullaby CD, and of course, Pampers Swaddlers (to keep the precious baby girl dry through the night). 

For Mom, we have a lavender scented candle, and a soothing fountain to help lull her relax.

And for Dad, we have a Movie and popcorn- perfect for watching with Mom, laughing a little (or maybe a lot), and hopefully helping them both relax after a rough day.  

I can't wait to give them their basket, and I really hope it does help them get a little more sleep! 

How could someone give YOU the gift of sleep?

My husband could give me the "gift of sleep" by helping me relax before bed and when our first baby arrives in November-- helping me with feeding her when he's able for the late night feedings.

I am thankful that my youngest sleeps through the night, of course, he is two years old. We have been having issues with diapers leaking over the last few weeks, when he decides that he wants to sleep in. He will wake up soaking wet sometimes...poor baby. I haven't tried the new size 5 Pampers yet, I might have to try them to see if they offer better protection.
