Let me tell you the story of the first time I changed a diaper.
I was 29, looking at my new baby, and thinking wow, I have no idea what to do.
And while I stalled the diapering process, my first born peed in his own ear. I was sure I had just damaged my son and called for reinforcements (i.e. nurses).
I made it through those first hours where I felt totally overwhelmed in parenting, and have made it through many, many other firsts three kids later.
One of our most memorable firsts is the first time each of the boys went to the beach.
Buddy sunned his squish-able cheeks in the Maryland sun.
Little Guy ate sand. Lots of it.
And Baby #3 paddled in the Gulf with his brothers.
While each boys’ first beach experience was different, one thing hasn’t changed from boy to boy: Pampers were with me from day 1. The hospital where I delivered provided Pampers Swaddlers for us when we had our boys, which isn’t a surprise since Pampers are the #1 choice of hospitals in North America and they are the first diapers worn by millions of babies.
Pampers Swaddlers are now available through size 6! Pampers listened to moms like us who said they wanted the blanket-like softness of Pampers Swaddlers available to them for the entire time their children are in diapers. Pampers Swaddlers, the softest of the Pampers diapers offers up to 12 hours of overnight protection, so no need to wake a sleeping baby to change them in the middle of the night because Swaddlers’ Absorb Away Liner® pulls wetness away from babies’ skin! My favorite feature of the Pampers Swaddlers are the color-changing wetness indicator that provides a visual signal when a baby’s diaper is wet. This was a true luxury for me when the boys were infants and it was difficult to tell if they were wet or not.
