Starting to potty train with Pampers Easy Up Underware #pamperseasyup

girls-pack-shotWelcome to the world of toddlers that amazing time when they’re still soooo cute and the things that come out of their mouth are heart meltingly cute too. There just one thing thats not fun about this time of raising a child, which is the potty training time.

I’m not a fan of changing diapers (but I’ve still changed my fair share!). I really dont love potty training, maybe its because everyone has an thought of which way is the best, or telling you to attempt to potty train way to early.

Our middle child Harper is now 3.5 years old and we are well away its past the point in time she should be potty trained or at the very least attempting to train.  She’s been in diapers long enough.

Pampers has an awesome website with amazing resources to help you decide if now is a good time to start potty training with your child.  Kids will love the new Dora and Thomas the Train designs, and Hello Kitty will be hitting shelves soon enough.bbcx06297214_silk6_kv_dora

The new Easy Ups look and feel like cotton underwear. With the 360 degree stretch waist, they are easier to get on and off. If there is an accident don’t worry! Parents can easily tear away the sides and change their kids. Easy Ups are the only training underwear with Extra Absorb Channels to help prevent leaks day and night!

Pampers is offering a coupon that you can print at home for $2 off 1 pack of new Pampers Easy Ups Training Pants. Help make the potty training process easy and more affordable with this high-value coupon. Here’s how to save: You can get the Pampers Easy Ups coupon. Just print, shop, and save.

Pampers Hello World Baby Memories App is available now – Enter to win an iPod Touch

 

A while back I invited to a little charity gifting and giving (those plans are still in the works) but out of that came an invite to be part of pampers baby board.  There is a new Pampers Hello World Baby Memories App is available now for free download on iTunes for your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone.  Because of Pampers one lucky reader is going to win an iPod Touch and a pack of Pampers SoftCare Baby Fresh Wipes.

Features on the new Hello World app include:

  • Making Memories- a one-touch sharing capability that allows you to take photo and videos, then quickly upload them to Facebook, Flickr, Twitter or Youtube at the touch of a button.
  • Albums- Allows you to conveniently organize and arrange, by category, your family’s photos directly on your ipad, itouch or iphone device.
  • Growing Baby- Allows you to take daily photos of your baby then pulls them all together in a time-lapse video so you can see how quickly your baby is growing right before your eyes! The best part is you can use this feature to create your own personal parenthood story– start with the baby bump, then the growth of your baby’s facial features, hands, feet, first tooth, etc. Growing Baby reveals in a remarkable way how precious babyhood really is…not that we need an app for that, but it’s still amazing to see!

The Hello World Baby Memories app is part of a series of apps called Pampers Hello Parenting Apps which also includes the Hello Baby Pregnancy Calendar

The Pampers Hello Baby Pregnancy Calendar allows you to explore life-sized images (iPad only; images in iPhone and iTouch are not life-sized) of a baby in the womb from week 4 up to week 40. Learn about the stages of pregnancy and make small discovers about a baby’s development. Did you know that a baby could respond to sounds by week 28? The “womb translator” feature allows you to record your voice, then play it back or share it with friends in the tone that your baby hears it.

Win a 3 month supply of Huggies Diapers and tips on how to keep up with your little movers

One of the things you get really quickly when you have a baby is just how much work goes into taking care of them – you also never know just how many diapers you’ll go through in a given day.  Let me tell you – its A LOT! Here’s Laila Ali’s tips for how to keep up with your little ones.

10 Tips to Keep Up with Little Movers: By Laila Ali

1. Get moving! Finding time to hit the gym isn’t always easy with a baby at home, so find ways to incorporate aerobic activity into your day. Walk to the library or supermarket whenever possible, and be sure to get your toddler out of his or her stroller so they can walk some of the way, too. If walking to your destination isn’t an option, park the car far from entrances or take the stairs instead of the elevator!

2. Surround yourself with support: From sharing parenting advice to all those special “firsts” in your baby’s life, connecting with other parents is a great way to surround yourself with needed support. Huggies® Brand is helping Parents all over the country come together by teaming up with Meetup, the world’s largest online network of local groups, to host 60 “Keep-Up Meetups” from January – March. “Keep-Up Kits” will be given away to help Meetup Parents keep up with their Little Mover!

3. Laugh! From spit-up to the spilled milk, don’t be afraid to laugh off the silly situations. Laughter really is the best medicine – relieving stress, and burning extra calories! Remember, parenting is never perfect so next time you find yourself in the middle of that messy diaper change don’t let yourself stress – instead let out a loud laugh!

4. Accept a Helping Hand! For a first time Parent, it’s hard to realize you really can’t do it all. Keeping up with your Little Mover all day can be exhausting! When feeling overwhelmed and ready to pull out your hair, it is ok to admit to yourself that you really could use that extra helping hand. Accept your family’s or friend’s offer to come over and keep your Little One entertained for a couple of hours. Don’t second guess this decision, be grateful and accept the favor because you deserve it (and others relish the time with your little bundle of joy)!

5. Don’t Forget to Sleep! Between the late night feedings and round the clock diaper duty, it may seem impossible to get more than a couple hours of shut-eye. To keep from feeling like you are going to fall asleep while at the stroller wheel, try to fit in a nap during the day while your baby snoozes and for the working Parent, ensure you head to bed as soon as possible once the little ones are tucked snuggly in their beds. Teaming up with your partner and switching off middle-of-the-night feedings and diaper changes can also save you from exhaustion!

6. Take up a hobby: Setting aside time to work on something you enjoy can help clear your mind and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Don’t be afraid to try out different hobbies until you find the one that fits your schedule and interests. If your hobby is one that can include your Little One, do it this can make for some very special bonding time!

7. Stay Organized: Organization is key to keeping stress to a minimum! From making sure the diaper bag is prepared prior to that long car ride or day at the playground, staying organized and scheduling your day can help you stay calm, cool and collected.

8. Reward yourself: Parents deserve rewards for all that they do on days other than Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. What’s even better is getting kickbacks on items they already purchase – like diapers! This season, enjoy a winning code in every pack of Huggies® Little Movers diapers to cash in for prizes like Starbucks gift cards and iPods! Submit each on-pack code online at Huggies.com to win.

9. Take a break! Be committed to taking regular breaks away from your children. It’s easy to brush off the importance of “me time” but it’s a must to keep you at your best – whether it’s taking a walk, reading a book or going for a drive, “me time” cannot be underestimated!

10. Remember to Treasure those “Aww-Inspired” Moments: Last but certainly NOT least, remember to sit back and enjoy the ride of a lifetime – parenthood! From sharing photos of your Little One rocking Huggies® Little Movers diapers on the Huggies Facebook page, to connecting with other parents on the Huggies Twitter page, remember to treasure each parenting moment!

Huggies commercial funny on so many levels

Once you have a baby boy you will come to understand the power of the water hose.  I have a great personal story from first days of my son’s life. My Mother-in-law [MIL] has two children one being my wife and the other being my brother-in-law (he has a child that is 5 days older then Marc). She was able to spend a little time with him before coming to New York for our child Marc.  She was our baby nurse (for lack of a better term). It was the second day of being home when a scream came from Marc’s room. My MIL screaming (in that funny yet upset way) He pee’d on me… I walk into the room to find her shirt covered in pee and seeing her have a look of disgust on her face (since a little actually got in her mouth). It was a rolling on the floor laughing moment for me (not so much for her). Today we still kid about it…

At this point I’ve been pee’d on more times then I have fingers and toes… I’ve learned the tell-tale signs of when he’s about to go.  I consider it a parenting badge of honor (other then the fact that I’m adding to the laundry pile) but really its part of the passage into parenthood.

Here is the Huggies commercial thats been running again on TV.

Here is a funny behind the scenes look at the making of this commercial.
