Making the World #BetterforBaby with Drew’s Tunes and Pampers

Like any Mom, there is nothing I would not do for my babies. By just watching the evening news, it is clear that today’s World is far from perfect but it is encouraging that despite the grim stories, there are even more good people in this World who will are willing to make it better.

I learned about two of these special people from a friend and was immediately moved by the story of Drew’s Tunes.  Georgia and Devron Boswell welcomed a beautiful, healthy baby boy in November of 2012. With smitten parents, Drew flourished and grew into a loving, happy, sweet toddler.

“Drew’s passion for music grew and he was constantly “playing” an array of instruments including kazoos, bongos and his favorite little red piano.”

Unfortunately, Drew passed away unexpectedly in his sleep in March of 2014 at just 15 months of age. With no cause of death, Georgia and Devron learned about the Sudden Unexplained Death in Children (SUDC) Program and joined a community of 600 affected families. This program not only is pioneering clinical research but is a centralized resource for information, support and advocacy. But for Georgia and Devron, this was not enough. They needed to do more to honor their son’s legacy and they wanted to do it through music. Drew’s Tunes was born.

“Drew’s Tunes has made it our mission to honor the blessing we had in our lives for 15 blissful months by striving to bring joyous smiles to other children.”

As early as Drew’s Memorial Service, Georgia and Devron requested that people make donations to a children’s arts program in the impoverished neighborhood of Tremé in New Orleans in lieu of flowers. In just a few weeks, these parents raised $10,000 and saved the summer camp from being cancelled due to local budget cuts. Drew was already making an impact.

Georgia and Devron pressed on and hosted a Bowl-A-Thon just 5 months after Drew’s passing and raised $41,000! More than 200 instruments, $33,000 to summer camps and $12,500 to SUDC research have been donated in Drew’s name. Building on their success, Drew’s Tunes hosted their 2nd Annual Bowl-A-Thon in August of 2015.

As a member of the Pampers Baby Board, I am often given the opportunity to make a difference in our own communities with the support of the brand. Pampers recently released a new video celebrating the fact that there is nothing parents won’t do for their children and how each person can make this World #BetterforBaby. The members of the Pampers Baby Board were challenged to make the World better for baby in our own community and immediately I knew I needed to help Drew’s Tunes.

Teaming up with Renee from What Mommies Need (another local Baby Board blogger), we combined our grant money to make a big impact. Donating money as a sponsor of Drew’s Tunes Bowl-A-Thon 2015 was just the tip of the iceberg. Renee and I were also able to purchase $2,000 in musical instruments (bongos, drums, maracas, xylophones, kazoos and tambourines) which will be donated to New Orleans preschools and daycare centers and $2500 in technology that will help Drew’s Tunes make an even bigger impact for years to come. I am happy to report that Drew’s Tunes raised over $61,000 at this year’s Bowl-A-Thon!

Now, that is better for baby! Thank you, Pampers for making New Orleans an even better place to live for our children!

If you feel compelled to make the World better for baby, we would be honored if you would consider donating to Drew’s Tunes.

Making the World #BetterforBaby with Pampers

This post was written by Linzy of Crawfish Tales. While a sample was received, all opinions remain 100% mine.

At iRetreat in New Orleans, I had the chance to see the unveiling of the Pampers Better for Baby campaign. It is a program that recognizes how babies have the ability to bring out the best in all of us and that is why we should do our part to make life better for them.

Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.23.11 PMAs part of the campaign, Pampers is unveiling a video that celebrates all the profound ways babies change the world around them for the better – and in turn asks families to pledge how they will make life #BetterForBaby. Disclaimer: grab a tissue, it’s a definite tear jerker.

In order to do their part to make the World better for baby, Pampers has supported the happy, healthy development of babies for the last 50 years. Pampers is committed to doing their small part through  commitments including:

  • protecting premature babies
  • helping families in need through product donations
  • preventing maternal and neonatal tetanus
  • reducing their environmental impact.

In fact, at the launch of this #BetterforBaby campaign, Pampers is making a significant donation to each of their charity partners (Graham’s Foundation, UNICEF and Feeding America).

The generous actions of this brand who really gets behind and supports the consumer really got me thinking. What was I going to pledge? How can I make life better for baby?  While I can’t do anything on such a large scale like Pampers does, I can do things in my own home. Babies may be little, but they have this extraordinary power to bring out the best in us and in turn, change the world for the better. So I pledged to do the following three things:

  1. Take care of my health because a healthy mom means a happier mom.
  2. To maximize my family time because I can’t get these moments back.
  3. To be a positive support for other moms and not contribute to mom shaming.

I really enjoyed the experience to reflect and determine what I could pledge to do my share. If you are ready to make your pledge, I encourage you to visit Pampers YouTube and Facebook pages and watch the Hush Little Baby video. Celebrate how babies bring out the best in all of us as you think about what your own pledge will be.

If you want to join others making their pledges, check out the Pampers #BetterforBaby Twitter Party: hosted by @iConnectIM (formerly Double Duty Divas).

Share Your Special Firsts with Pampers

This post was written by the Experimental Mommy who is a member of the Pampers Baby Board. All opinions remain 100% honest.

After trying for 6 months to become pregnant with our first child, I started to worry that something was wrong. Every negative pregnancy test made me yearn to be a Mother that much more. But finally in 2004, my husband and I were thrilled to announce we would soon become a family of three.

The first time I heard the heartbeat. The first ultrasound. The first flutters of baby kicks. The first contractions. All of these firsts were magical moments I will never forget.

And then she arrived.

The first smile. The first solid foods. The first laugh. The first time she walked.  All precious memories to me.

Pampers is honored to be a part of the journey of amazing firsts for millions of families around the world and created this heartwarming video to celebrate of those “firsts” moments with babies. It certainly brought back memories of all those special firsts with my daughter. And now, you can share your own special “firsts” memories, too. Beginning February 16th, create and share your own journey of Firsts at

After my Maternity Leave was over and it was time to head back to work, my arms actually ached for my baby while I was away. But, the fact that I had two loving family members watching my baby the first few weeks of her life, sending me pictures and texts and answering my 1,000,000th phone call to make sure everything was OK, somehow made things bearable.

And I am eternally grateful. For all the firsts and for all of the people who made those firsts even more memorable. Thank you.

Giving the Gift of Sleep to an Expecting Mom with Pampers

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.

Superior Dryness Promotes Superior Sleep {Pampers Giveaway}

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% mine.

Even though my babies are no longer real “babies,” I remember all too well the sleepless nights followed by miserable days with a sleepy baby.  My oldest was never a fan of nighttime and loved to through midnight parties, my youngest slept like a brick.  She would sleep through the barking dog, the telephone ringing, the television and even a vacuum cleaner.  But, a wet diaper made for a cranky and very awake baby.  As a result, I would have done anything to keep her dry if it meant sleeping through the night and after Pampers interviewed nearly 9,000 Moms, I learned that I am not the only one wishing for a superior diaper.

Moms wished.  Pampers delivered.  In the biggest innovation in Pampers’ more than 50 year history, Pampers diapers are now three times drier than ordinary diapers, which result in the best possible experience for baby.  Even better, the popular Pampers Swaddlers now have additional comfort features and come through Size 5!

I absolutely loved the softness of the Swaddlers when my babies were little and would have loved to continue using them through Size 5.   Additional Swaddlers features include a wetness indicator to signal when baby needs to be changed (great for knowing when a sleeping baby needs to be changed) and an absorb away liner to keep baby dry for up to 12 glorious hours.  Superior dryness=superior sleep!

That Moment When You Became a Parent {Pampers Giveaway}

As a Pampers Baby Board Member, a sample was received to facilitate this review.  All opinions remain 100% mine.

After six month of trying to get pregnant with our first child, my husband and I could not have been more thrilled to learn we were expecting a baby in February 2005.  Once the initial excitement began to wear off, anxiety set in.

We were having a baby.  But more importantly, the baby was having us.

Would we know what to do?  What do we feed her?  How do we change a diaper?  What if she gets sick?  Getting answers to one question only brought up more questions.  But when the big day arrived and Lily Catherine entered the world on January 31, 2005, our anxiety disappeared and was replaced with complete unconditional love and a huge sense of protection over our new little miracle.

Lily spent the first two nights in the neonatal ICU and because I was extremely anemic, I had a hard time visiting.  But my husband was a rock.  Not only did he take care of me, but watched over Lily with such compassion, love and concern that there was no doubt in my mind that he had become a Father in every sense of the word.

Pampers recognizes the very important role that dads play in your little miracles’ lives each and every day and is taking time to celebrate Dad for Father’s Day with a very special giveaway right here on Experimental Mommy.  I would love to hear all about those very special moments when you first realized that your partner (and/or YOU) had become a Father.  Enter to win this prize pack below:

Join the Pampers Valentine’s Play Date Pin Party

The winner is #23 Jen Q.  Congrats!

My husband and I were high school sweethearts, so we have been together for over 21 years (wow, has it really been that long?).  Each Valentine’s Day, he brings me a single red rose….sometimes in person, sometimes left on my pillow and other times I have found it in my car.  Since having two daughters, I adore the fact that he now brings me the traditional red rose and each daughter gets a single pink rose.  My heart melts.

Let’s face it, after you have kids, Valentine’s Day takes on a whole new meaning.  It becomes a celebration of family and the ways you can express your love for each other.  A great idea to include the kids in Valentine’s Day is to plan a special parent/child play date.

To kick off this special Valentine’s Play Date, Pampers is hosting a #PampersPlayDate Pinterest Party!  Through the party, parents can share their ideas on how to make a play date extra special including great venue ideas, the perfect outfit from The Children’s Place and essential gear for a successful play date from Pampers.

Joining in the party will be totally fun, but to make it interesting, we have decided to award one participant with a $200 The Children’s Place Gift Card and a YEAR supply of Pampers diapers and wipes!

Here’s how to play:

Want something else to celebrate?  From February 1st-11th, make a purchase at The Children’s Place and receive 25 Pampers Gifts to Grow Points!
