This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy. As a member of the Pampers Baby Board, a gift card was provided to facilitate this mission. All opinions remain 100% mine.
One of my favorite parts of being a member of the Pampers Baby Board is being able to complete fun “missions” in my hometown. This month we were tasked with “Giving the Gift of Sleep” to a new or expecting Mom in our community in honor of the biggest innovation in Pampers’ more than 50 year history.
Pampers diapers are now three times drier than ordinary diapers featuring an absorb away liner to keep baby dry for up to 12 glorious hours. The new diaper can result in the best possible experience for baby and a good night sleep for Mom and Dad. Now, it was my turn to share my Mom experience with an expecting Mom and deliver “the gift of sleep.”
A good friend of mine is expecting her first baby in January! The baby is much anticipated by family and friends so I thought I would share my tips and tricks by putting together a basket full of items guaranteed to hep the new parents get some rest.
After searching her baby registry, I decided on a few sleep specific items. First, I purchased some lavender scented baby lotion to get baby relaxed and ready for bed. Both of my babies slept best when swaddled, so a Swaddle Me blanket is essential for this basket along with a lovey for when baby gets older. To help soothe a fussy baby, I included a white noise machine (my girls still go to bed with the same lullabyes I played when they were infants). A video enabled baby monitor is such a great idea because when Mom knows her baby is safely sound asleep, it’s much easier to drift off herself. I also selected some crib sheets in brown and cream to match the nursery theme to make sure baby is warm and cozy.
Not to forget about the new parents, I added a gift card to a restaurant so they can enjoy a night out or pick up dinner to enjoy at home. To make sure Mom is pampered and relaxed, I included a gift card to a local salon for some primping. Last but certainly not least, I rounded out the gift basket with Pampers Swaddlers Size 1 and 2 along with some Pampers wipes. With the new innovation, baby can stay dry all night and let Mom and Dad get some sleep, too!
This “Gift of Sleep” mission was so fun! Thanks to Pampers for providing a gift card allowing me to surprise a friend and celebrate her new little miracle.
