I was so excited to be a part of the Pampers Gift of Sleep Give Back celebration this week because I got to Give Back to my older sister and her husband who recently took in a newborn little girl as a foster child! Little Amelia just turned three months old this week. She is the biological sister of Baylen, the two year old little boy they adopted this July…just before Amelia was born, in fact. They also have a 4 year old little girl named Bonita that they adopted just over a year ago, and they are hoping to adopt Amelia as soon as they get all the paperwork and legal hurdles dealt with.
But, sleep is in very short supply in their home right now. Amelia is a premie with severe reflux problems, and the older two both have special needs that often make sleep difficult for them. So, any time my sister and her husband get to take a break, it’s very welcome! I sent them a Pampers $100 American Express Gift Card so that they could have a relaxing day out during my sister’s fall break from school (she’s an administrator of a public charter school). They started off their day with a stop by the Washoe Valley Candy Factory! Yum!
Then they drove up to Lake Tahoe for a relaxing day by the lake, enjoying the scenery, the cool, crisp mountain air, and each other.
They returned relaxed and rested and ready for another day!
I also sent them two packs of Pampers Diapers…Amelia and Baylen are both Pampers kids. Pampers is always working to improve their diapers so that parents feel confident that they won’t leak and can get some rest. They recently interviewed over 9,000 moms to find out what they thought was important in diapers. They found that overnight dryness was at the top of the list. So, they’ve improved their diapers yet again to provide up to 12 hours of overnight protection…so babies wake up less due to leaky diapers and parents can sleep more.
They’ve also listened to parents when it comes to sizing and fit. Pampers Swaddlers, their softest diaper, now comes in sizes up to 5. And they’ve also made Pampers Cruisers even more absorbent with the best fit for all the ways babies play. You can learn more about Pampers and the Gift of Sleep celebration at the Pampers website and by following Pampers on Facebook and Twitter.
Pampers is also giving one Education of a Stay at Home Mom reader a Sleep Sheep Sound Machine, Cozy Blanket, and $50 American Express Gift Card so that they can get some rest, too!
