A long time ago, thirteen years ago if that is even possible, I brought home my first baby boy from the hospital. I read every book I could get my hands on, but there was no denying the fact that once he arrived, I had no earthly idea what in the world I was doing. We have always lived in Florida, and he was born in the summer, so it was hot! I kept placing him in his bassinet, and I would walk by a few minutes later and he would be soaking wet. I kept thinking it must be sweat, but it turns out, it wasn’t. A combination of bad quality diapers and my lack of know how meant he was springing a leak quite often. Don’t worry, I got a crash course in diaper changing and upgraded to some Pampers® and we were good to go!
I sure do wish we had had diapers like the new Pampers Swaddlers back then though. Have you tried these things? They are so soft, as close to a cloth diaper as you are likely to get with a disposable, and they have an amazing feature called a wetness indicator. What’s that? The indicator shows a change in color on the diaper when mess is indicated. That could have saved me a big ol’ “duh” moment all those years ago couldn’t it?
Once my oldest got a little bigger, he was having the hardest time with diaper rashes too. I’m telling you, being a new mom is full of fun surprises. The new Pampers® Swaddlers can help with that too though. With absorb away liners, and diapers that fit babies that are even a size 4 or 5, they’ve got it all covered. Literally! Also, Pampers® has a great Rewards program, where you can earn codes when buying products, and redeem those for great prizes and giveaways.
Have you tried the new Pampers® Swaddlers yet? Give your baby the #1 choice of hospitals (based on sales data.) Feel free to share your funny diaper changing stories with me? No, really, don’t leave me feeling like the only dork!
