WIN Diapers for a Year! #PGmom ( CAN 01/31) @Pampers @PGInsider


When I first found out I was pregnant with Little One, I was determined that I'd be a cloth diapering Mama. I wanted to tread as lightly on the earth as possible and do what I deemed best for my child.

Then she arrived early.

Twelve weeks early.

In the NICU, Pampers was the diaper of choice. Pampers offered not only newborn sized diapers, but preemie sized diapers! They were the tiniest diapers I had ever seen! Even so, they were still too big for our 980 gram preemie! That's almost 2 lbs, 3 oz.!

Little One's primary nurse raved about Pampers, and though I was heartbroken at the fact that Little One wasn't a cloth diapered baby, I knew that while still in the hospital it wasn't feasible.

I will add that when we finally brought her home at 3 months chronological (now that she's 4 years old, we don't use her corrected age), I did try cloth diapering.  It lasted an entire month.  I'm secretly jealous of all the moms who can do it. I just couldn't keep up.

As a mom, I know that finding the right diaper for your child is important. I have to say that I'm glad that Pampers were a part of Little One's early days. If you're going to be spending that much time changing diapers (and babies can go through a lot of diapers!), you might as well make sure they're diapers that a) are gentle against baby's soft skin, b) do their job, c) fit perfectly, d) don't leak.

I also know that when Little One was still a baby, I recall telling my husband, "Wouldn't it be nice to win diapers for a year?"

The truth is, diapers add up.

My little girl wasn't much of a squirmy worm, so we didn't have much trouble during diaper changes.

But, if I did. I would sing a song to her to keep her distracted. Or play a little game.

Valerie said...

I sing to my little girl when I change her diaper or I tell her funny stories. We have a great time!

Lisa Bolduc said...

talk to them while changing them,

Angie B said...

My best tip - I always have something for her to hold and play with when changing her. When that fails to keep her attention, I sing to her and she giggles and soon forgets about being changed!

Jeannie Lam said...

I always have a cloth under my baby's bum in case there's poop up his back. I sing to him and make funny faces to distract him.

Erin D said...

I managed to cloth diaper only one out of three kids, despite my best intentions.

The first child could soak a cloth diaper in one good squirt.

The second had cloth diapers.

The third screamed hysterically from day 1 as soon as his cloth diaper was wet, so we moved to Pampers within two weeks and were very grateful for the insta-dry feel of them!

Carolynn Gomez said...

My son is a big squirmer! I find when I talk sweetly to him and sing "the wheels on the bus" he relaxes more. I also keep plush and teething toys that rattle and make music around to keep his focus on so u can finish up! :)

Carolynn Gomez said...

Oh another tip that always do: I stick the new diaper ready and opened underneath the one I'm going to change just in case anymore comes out and also make it faster.

Christine McN said...

Wow! Thanks, ladies! Those are all great tips!

Carolynn
I used to do that too!!! I always had a new diaper underneath Little One's bum while I was changing the soiled one! I think that's the smartest thing I ever did! :) Also a tip learned from her primary nurse in the NICU! :)

MommyKnowz said...

toys and best fast and efficient very important when they get squirmy!! oh and have everything with you and ready to use and always!!! cover a little boy....you will get peed on!

Anonymous said...

having a toy for them to play with

flowerchild said...

I like to sing the alphabet when I change her diapers, it keeps her entertained and teaches
thanks

Addicted to Recipes said...

I let my little one pick a toy to bring with him on the change table. Keeps him entertained while I do the diaper swap :-)

To make changing go a bit faster and more smoothly I open the new pamper place it under the pamper which is still on. Open the wet one being worn. Quick wipe and remove pamper sliding it out and then put the new pamper on. This came in very handy and I never hot pissed on again lol

leanne_mac said...

move quickley and entertain with talking and toys.

Dianne said...

I hung a little ABC chart above my baby's change table. Every time I changed him I would go through the chart with him. He learned his ABC's very young. At 18 months I could ask him where is a certain letter and he would point to it.

Haylie said...

A diaper changing tip? When you have a boy, put a small facecloth over his penis when changing as a newborn. He will pee on you as soon as the cold air hits him!

Nadine said...

Changing a boy is easier then changing a girl :) , always have the boys private covered when exposed to cold ai when changing pamper .. give child toy,or phone something they cant have and you'll do a great job

Elizabeth FrugalMomEh said...

I always give her a toy or she flips over and tries to crawl away.

Angela M said...

We always change on the heated floor. He is nice and warm that way and I don't have to worry about him falling off a change table.

Belinda M said...

Talking to the baby and of course tickling the belly

Lori Bazan said...

I have a baby facecloth ( I named the pee pee cloth) to cover your baby son's privates to avoid a spray!

Yan Deng said...

i let put a bear that play music beside them

bula said...

Have everything you need ready to go before the change begins - open the diaper up, have wipes ready, etc.

Annie1 said...

have your changing area all organized and have a toy or a phone that baby can focus on while diaper is being changed

Lindsay Cyr said...

I always talk to my baby while I'm changing his diaper. I usually tell him what I'm doing, such as "Mama is going to take your pants off now....Mama is going to fasten your fresh diaper now". I find this keeps him calm and he focuses on my voice :)

Shari G said...

When having a boy, always point the unit down, and have the clean diaper under the old diaper so there is always a diaper ready.

As they get older if you have a boy, try to move as fast as possible.

ksceviour said...

Be prepared for a water fountain spray if changing a boy,,cover with a cloth or wipe..sing or talk to them to keep them distracted while changing.

Nicolthe pickle said...

I always give my daughter a little toy to keep her occupied while changer her.

Tammy D said...

I use to sing to my boys while I changed them , always got their attention or give them the wipes container that'll keep them busy while your changing that diaper!

I so know all about the importance of diapers, being mom to two preemies myself! Diapers aren't all the same. They don't all absorb the same, they don't all fit the same and they aren't all made with the same kind of materials. Pampers for me is the #1 brand to use on young babies. Never had a problem with rashes or irritation, they fit and they do not leak which is a major issue I had using other brands with my first daughter! Having a 3rd baby recently I can still stand by Pampers...I think winning pampers for a year is any mom of young kids dream hehe awesome contest!

JenniferGrace1 said...

My little sweetheart is at the stage where she wants to try to move while i'm changing her(makes for a real mess sometimes) I try to occupy her with baby wipes or whatever toy is closest to me to get the job done.

Fan R. said...

Have changing pads everywhere about 5 of them in total so I can change fast without looking for one.

Fan R. said...

Have many changing pads everywhere.

mongupp said...

Well since I've been changing diapers/nappies for 10 years, my best tip is make it quick and snappy!!!

Happy Chinadoll said...

I change her diaper on the floor so I wont worry in case she rolls and falls off

Lisa B said...

have a newborn...and he likes his big sis to hold his hand while he gets changed!

Lisa Marie Fletcher said...

Do it fast!

Rene Beaubien said...

When my daughter was really small I'd put the clean diaper under her before opening the used one. Then wipe and remove the old diaper - she's all for the new one to be closed up!

suzie said...

Just be as fast as you can

Kathleen B. said...

Speed it critical

mamawee said...

my best tip: for poopy diapers, use the inside front of the diaper to wipe as much away as possible, leaving you to use not too many wipes on their tender bums

SG said...

Keep certain toys just for diaper changes!

Tanis S said...

Toys are a great distraction... and being quick!

let it be said...

Sing or talk to baby, and always have extra wipes handy lol :)

Heidi C. said...

Lots of tickles and kisses always works for me!

MrsPirate said...

My daughter is a huge squirmer! I've gotten in the habit of getting everything on hand and open and ready to go so as soon as we open the dirty diaper it can be a quick process. Other than that I tickle her to keep her from rolling over. She enjoys it and it distracts her long enough to get the job done. :)

Maigan Lynn said...

I've recently found out that we're expecting our first little one so I don't have any great tips yet but I would suggest to first time moms to get the collective opinions of other moms on their diaper choices and why. I have 5 friends who have all had babies in the last year and all but one use pampers! Because of this, it'll be the brand I most lean towards! :)

Elaine Bolduc said...

talk to the child in a fun voice, make it a good time

pippirose said...

I always used to sing to my babies while changing their diapers. And play little piggies on their wee toes, other little sing-song games.
:o)

Martina said...

don't dottle....be prepared before starting and just do it
its when you go slow that baby pees, squirms away or tries to help!!!

cocorricco said...

Singing to baby or talking in a silly voice and making silly faces.
