Celebrate Those #MilestoneMoments With Pampers + $150 Toys R Us Gift Card Giveaway

I received compensation in the form of a Babies R' Us gift card from P&G in exchange for this post. All my opinions are my own.

 

The day I found out my husband and I were expecting our first child, I was both thrilled and scared to death.  I had always wanted to have a baby and be a mom, but so many scenarios started racing through my head.  That day was one of the happiest and scariest days of my life.

Newborns don't come with an instruction manual, or book of tips that work and don't work.  Would I be able to handle all of the situations that would arise?  I quickly learned that a method that worked one day might not work the next, and that motherhood was all about learning.

Motherhood also comes with a lifetime of #MilestoneMoments!  From baby's first smile, their first time sleeping through the night, rolling over, crawling, their first word, walking, their first birthday, their first day of school, their first loose tooth, and the list goes on.

Every mom quickly realizes the importance of a reliable diaper.  There's nothing more frustrating that having a "blow out" in the car seat, shopping cart, crib, or even at the park.  it's a messy job, but it doesn't have to be.  

 

That’s why when choosing to wrap your baby’s bottom you’ll want to pick up Swaddlers, Pampers softest diaper and the #1 choice among hospitals.  Available up to size 5 at Babies “R”Us, their knowledgeable experts can help you choose the perfect fit for your precious little bundle of joy. 

Pampers Swaddlers Available Up To Size 5 At Toys R Us and Babies R Us:

 

  • With up to 12 hours of overnight protection, Swaddlers help you make your baby as comfortable as possible.
  • Swaddlers color-changing wetness indicator makes it easy for you to tell when your baby might be ready for a change.  This will be especially helpful in the middle of the night when you can barely keep your eyes open.
  • Swaddlers give your baby comfort and protection they’ll love for even longer.
  • Swaddlers Super Economy Pack and Economy Plus Pack are now available (online only)


Here are a few things I wish I would have known before becoming a mommy:

  • Almost everything in your life will change - for the better!  Being a mom is an adventure and experience that has made me a better person.
  • Patience is the key!  When you get to the point of exhaustion, and you will, take a few moments for you!  Lock yourself in the bedroom or the bathroom and just breathe.
  • You’ll never be fully prepared!  Just take things one day at a time, do your best, and roll with the punches.
  • You will encounter people who don’t approve of or agree with your parenting choices! Trust me, everyone you know is going to have advice for you and what you "should" and shouldn't do with you baby.  Family, friends, and even strangers will be offering up their tips and tricks, some of them when you don't even ask.  My best piece of advice is to say, thank you with a smile and do what works for you!

What has been your favorite #MilestoneMoments since becoming a mom?

I would be interested in trying the Pampers Swaddlers Newborn diapers! : )

kellyr78 said...

I think the Pampers Cruisers would be good because they are designed to move with the child to prevent leaks, which is always a plus.

Natalie F said...

I think I've tried all the Pampers products, but would love to pick up some Lil splashers for summer. And I love their sensitive baby wipes.

Natalie F said...

My best mommy tip is that more is caught than taught with kids. How you deal with frustration is how they will deal with frustration. If you yell, they will. It is easier to model good behavior than to "teach" it. #MilestoneMoments

Laura said...

Susan Christy said...

Trying to win this for my niece who just had her first baby. I don't know much about diapers, except how to change them. She would probably buy the Baby Dry diapers.

Natalie said...

I have tried and absolutely love Pamapers Swaddlers diapers as well as the Cruisers diapers! They really seem to hold up well and no leaks as of yet! :)

Elle said...

My favorite #MilestoneMoment is hearing their first word. It's really special to hear their voice for the very first time.

Elle said...

Melissa Storms said...

My daughter is expecting her first child soon and I would love to send her a couple packages of the newborn swaddlers.

Melissa Storms said...

My best tip is to remember you are not always going to be this tired. Also get a calendar and mark a day each week for a year to take a picture of your baby. They grow so fast that first year.

Carmen Van Deursen said...

I enjoyed the first smiles and would tip to take lots of pictures of your little one in every stage. They enjoy looking at pictures of themselves as they get older.

Lexiquin said...

We already love Pampers diapers, but the whole family can use Pampers Natural Clean Wipes!

Lexiquin said...

The best advice I have comes from Proverbs: "Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it."
vs. 22:6
Now that I'm a grandmother, I hope my daughter will pray, prioritize, plan, and play.

Melissa O. said...

I don't know if I can pick a favorite #milestonemoment but if I had to, the first laugh is truly amazing

Shannon F said...

I would most like to try the Pampers Natural Clean Wipes because they are hypoallergenic, unscented and made with a touch of aloe in every wipe!

Shannon F said...

My best mommy tip is to have patience and try to have a good sense of humor. I never would've gotten through my daughter's first few years without laughing at her, myself, or the situation we were in. lol

LauraJJ said...

Oh I would love to try the Pampers Splashers! We have been using a different brand, and they just have not worked really well. We have a pool and swim often, so I would love to try these!

Jessica B. said...

I tell new moms to sleep when the baby sleeps. It is ok if the house isn't clean all the time. jj250@aol.com

Deal Bunny said...

Soak in all the little moments... put away your iphone and stop taking pictures. It's great to capture memories once in awhile but we need to detach from technology to really bond

sohamolina said...

My best mommy tip is to sleep when baby sleeps! The laundry isn't going anywhere, but your sanity might be lol. Also, don't be ashamed to ask and accept help! It's ok to not be superwoman, and it is such a blessing to have help from loved ones!

thisisliferemix said...

I would like to try their swaddles. They really helped my baby and I am just wandering if it would be better for her since they are a better brand.

My mommy tip is to take one day at a time. It would definitely do a lot for you.

Chantal said...

Pamers natural clean wipes. I would love to use natural wipes on my babies!

Chantal said...

My best tip is to learn your own ways. Everyone and their mother and grandmother will try to tell you how everything SHOULD be. Every one, every baby and every family is different. There is no rules or one way to do anything besides love and make sure your kids are 110% taken care of!
