A few weeks ago I was offered a chance to host a #PampersFirsts party with some of my girlfriends to celebrate all of life's "firsts" with the #1 diaper choice by hospitals in North America. My friends Mary and Jaime were expecting their first babies, so I was super excited to throw a party and invite them! Since they were both so close to their due date, we had our party on Valentine's Day - which I thought was absolutely perfect! What better day to spend with people I love?!
I was so excited about this party I went a little overboard on the food and decorations. A chance to celebrate my friends and babies - how can you not go a little nutty? Even me - the girl who says she is "allergic to babies" still can't resist throwing a shindig to celebrate bringing new little people into our family of friends. It was fantastic.
I had so much fun making Diaper Babies, Baby Wash Cloth Critters, Onesie Cupcakes, and Milano Cookie Swaddle Babies - all of which I will be sharing with you in the coming weeks - but none of my food or decorations could could top the fun we all had just being together, laughing, joking - and even a little crying as we all gathered in the living room to watch the Pampers Firsts video - Celebrating Life's Firsts.
Pampers understands there is nothing more joyful or rewarding than the precious first-time moments shared by little ones and their families. In honor of this special journey, Pampers has released a compilation video entitled “Firsts” that highlights those wondrous “first” experiences together. From the first time parents see their little one on a sonogram to the first evening home from the hospital, the Pampers “Firsts” video showcases precious, heart-felt moments babies and parents share together. Pampers recognizes that all first moments, no matter how big or small, are moments to be cherished and celebrated. Pampers is honored to be a part of the journey of firsts for millions of families around the world every day.
We had so much fun that afternoon just talking about life stuff - pregnancy, birthing stories, "firsts" and even going in to tales of potty training and toddler beds. The funny thing is just like our conversation carried through the first years in life - so do Pampers Swaddlers, which now go up to a size six! Pampers listened to moms who said they wanted the Pampers Swaddlers softness they know and love to be available throughout their diapering years. Now from their first to their last diaper you can wrap your little one in Pampers.
Pampers Swaddlers wraps baby with superior comfort, protection and blanket-like softness, helping to take care of babies during all the precious first moments they share with their parents. Pampers Swaddlers is Pampers softest diaper and offers up to 12 hours of overnight protection with an Absorb Away Liner® to pull wetness and mess away from babies’ skin. It's no wonder Pampers Swaddlers is the #1 choice of hospitals in North America!

It was a wonderful afternoon and I was so excited to get to be a part of it. AND I am excited to say that Mary (in blue) went in to labor just three hours after our party! Jaime had her little one just two days later! Both of them texted the news and told me their newest little bundles were already wrapped in Pampers Swaddlers. <3
