Giveaway: The Gift of Sleep for Baby Ariana

#Giftofsleep #Pampers Latina Mom Blogs
This is part of a sponsored promotion with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

On September 7th baby Ariana was born {4 weeks early}.

She was only 5lbs 9 oz.


Her mama Crystal, a close friend of mine for many years, spent several days at the hospital but was ready to go home a few days after delivery. Typically a happy occasion, but in this case she had to leave without bringing baby Ariana with her. 🙁 Ariana had to spend the next 2 1/2 weeks in the NICU before she was able to go home.

Thankfully, baby Ariana is a happy, healthy baby at home today!

But I can only imagine what Crystal and her husband went through not being able to bring her home. They spent every minute they could at the hospital for those two weeks, except when they had to go home to sleep.

When my first was born, I remember being told she had Jaundice, and that she might need to stay a couple of days to be monitored. I was crying my eyes out at just the thought that I might have to leave her there. We were lucky though, and she got to come home with us.

So needless to say that, when I got the opportunity to give the “Gift of Sleep” to a new baby, it took me all of a second to think of baby Ariana.

Pampers gift of sleep

Our mission was to give a care package and include Pampers from their newly upgraded line of diapers, wipes, training pants and swaddlers, which by the way are awesome. My toddler is currently in size 4 of the swaddlers and they have just now come out with size 5’s, which is perfect timing for us! They new line is also now three times drier than regular diapers and can last up to 12 hours!! 🙂 Yes ma’am, can you say Hallelujah for nighttime? 🙂

I can say without a doubt, the the number 1 reason my kiddos will wake up in the middle of the night is because of a wet leaky diaper. And for moms that co-sleep, you will relate to this…. and yes I admit this happens too often…  {I have 2 in diapers remember?} Diaper leaks on bed, it’s 4 AM, what do you do? You can’t wake up everyone else just to change the sheets.

A towel it is! Throw that towel on the bed and go back to sleep. {EEEEEK}

It happens people.

Now can you give me that – Hallelujah? 🙂

    Wow, your sweet friend went through so much. I’m 36 weeks pregnant now, expecting my first baby girl soon. I couldn’t imagine having her that early, but so glad that your friends baby is healthy and doing well now!

    I’m biased, but I could really use the gift of sleep! Thanks for the opportunity.
