We all remember our firsts in our life – first time we were able to ride a bike without falling, first day of school, first teacher, first kiss… the list goes on and on. Then we become mothers, and a whole new chapter of “firsts” opens up. First flutter, first kick, and finally – a first cry. I was honored to have the opportunity last weekend to celebrate all of those “firsts” by hosting a #PampersFirsts party in my home with my bestie who works in the baby room at a local daycare, two close friends who were expecting their “first” babies, and two others who brought their sweet little “firsts” along with them. It was a perfect afternoon.
Pampers sent some awesome goodies to help me put on my PampersFirsts party! Since my two friends were so close to their due date, we had the party on Valentine’s Day – after all that day is all about being with those you love! I went a little overboard on the food and decorations… but it was totally worth it.
After lunch we all settled in the living room to talk about life’s “firsts.” It was so neat to have six women there – all with so much in common, and so many differences. One thing we all had in common – we all used Pampers on our little ones from day one.
Pampers Swaddlers are the #1 choice of hospitals in North America* and the first diaper worn by millions of babies nationwide. Pampers Swaddlers comforts and protects babies through their entire journey of firsts, helping to ensure their happy, healthy development. Pampers Swaddlers offer up to 12 hours of overnight protection and feature Absorb Away Liner® to pull wetness and mess away from babies’ skin, making it the safest, most comfortable choice for your little first.
Speaking of firsts – we watched the PampersFirsts video on YouTube, and let’s just say – I should have had the Kleenex ready. Both of our mommies-to-be were puddles after it was over, and I have to admit, I was pretty misty myself, remembering all of those firsts I had with my girls so many years ago.
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.
Pampers aren’t just for those first few years though – Pampers Swaddlers are now available all the way up to 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. So from the first moment to the first trip to the potty – Pampers Swaddlers has your little one covered.

OH – and remember how I said my two friends were close to their due date? Mary (in blue) went in to labor just three hours after the party! And Jaime just two days later! Both welcomed amazingly beautiful, healthy babies – who were both put in to Pampers Swaddlers right away. <3
