As parents, every moment with our children is special, every second is one to cherish, and every first moment is one to hold onto for years to come. Whether it was his first breath, her first cries, his first smile, her first word, or his first steps, a child’s firsts are some of the most sweetly wonderful moments in life. As parents, we celebrate those moments throughout our children’s lives and, now, Pampers is joining in on that celebration.
As many of you know, I hosted a Pampers viewing party a short time ago in honor of the recently released Pampers “Firsts” video. Through their video and the “Firsts” campaign, Pampers aims to help parents celebrate each and every one of those milestone moments.
As the #1 choice of hospitals in North America and the first diaper worn by millions of babies, Pampers Swaddlers comforts and protects babies through their entire journey of amazing firsts. Pampers understands that 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.
Although my own children have since outgrown their diaper stages, I can vividly remember each and every first moment shared with each of them. It still seems as if it was just yesterday that I had only found out of their impending arrivals. While we’ve graduated to the big boy firsts, I am happy to be able to say that for all of their babyhood firsts, Pampers joined us throughout the journey. As my own little ones are now onto bigger things, I am excited for many of my friends and family members who are just beginning their own “Firsts” journey with their babies. That is what brings us to one of my very own firsts – my first Pampers “Firsts” party!
When I was presented with the opportunity to host this party, I was quite excited. With so many of my friends and family members having recently welcomed sweet bundles of joy into the world, I was thrilled to have the chance to share with them all of the wonderful “Firsts” that are to come as well as a wonderful array of Pampers goodies!
Yes, that’s right! Pampers was kind enough to send me a massive sampling of their wipes and diapers to be used as fantastic party favors for all of our guests. Just take a look!
Now, as I am sure that many of you know, Pampers offers parents with a vast collection of products that are perfect for every stage of your little one’s first few years of life. However, the Pampers Swaddlers are often the start of your baby’s lifetime of “Firsts.” Many of North America’s hospitals have Pampers Swaddlers on hand and not only is it their first choice but it is often a baby’s first diaper.
As the #1 choice of hospitals in North America and the first diaper worn by millions of babies, Pampers Swaddlers comforts and protects babies throughout their entire journey of firsts, helping to ensure their happy, healthy development.
Having personally used Pampers products for my own children, I am pleased to announce that the Pampers Swaddlers are now available through size six! Previously only available in the smaller sizes, many parents voiced their opinions about wanting the same softness of Swaddlers for their growing children. Well, Pampers listened! Now available in an array of sizes, children and parents alike can enjoy the Swaddlers’ blanket-like softness, 12-hour protection, and superior comfort for many more “Firsts” to come.
In addition to the wonderful comfort levels for baby and the amazing absorbency aspect of the Absorb Away Liner, one of my most favorite features of the Pampers Swaddlers is the color-changing wetness indicator. I cannot tell you how many times the indicator came in handy for me and my own children, especially during those first moments at home.
Now, speaking of “Firsts,” let’s get back to that video. After all, it was the whole reason for hosting my Pampers “Firsts” Party.
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.

As you can see, a baby’s “Firsts” are incredibly special moments and I am so thankful to have not only been able to share such an amazing lifetime of these moments with my own children but also to have had the opportunity to share the Pampers “Firsts” initiative with all of you as well as all of my guests at our viewing party. Once we were all finished drying our eyes, reminiscing about our own little ones’ first moments, and thinking of all of the “Firsts” that are still to come, we simply enjoyed one another’s company. In addition to being a viewing party for the video itself, the event also turned into a Pampers play date of sorts. With family, great friends, delicious food, and Pampers, how could you go wrong? Here’s a little peek at how our Pampers “Firsts” party played out:
The first “guest” to arrive at my house was a fabulous box filled to the brim with a boatload of wonderful Pampers products.
If you were following along on social media, I teased the arrival of this box. While many of you had guessed that is was, in fact, full of favorite Pampers products, I was surprised to see just how much was inside for everyone to enjoy. Just take a look at all of the Swaddlers and Pampers wipes!
There was even a gorgeous gift set meant just for the host! How fun? In addition to the Pampers products, there were a few extra surprise items included in the beautiful gift box. The Summer Infant SwaddleMe and the White Elm Boutique Mint Chevron Tote Bag both made appearances at the event as well!
For preparation prior to the guests’ arrival, we made it a family event as we put together all of the gift bags and set out some delicious treats for our guests to enjoy. After all, every party needs some tasty snacks and great food!
Greeting the guests as they arrived was a fun makeshift photo booth setup. For us, it turned out to be more of a peek-a-boo location for our smaller guests so we weren’t able to get many photo booth styled photos but it was fun none the less.
As the party began and after we enjoyed watching the new Pampers “Firsts” video together, we shared stories of our own first moments with our children and daydreamed about all of the first moments that are still to come. We also discussed our love for the Pampers brand and took part in a brief online survey about the new Pampers Swaddlers. You can take the same review survey here! As an added bonus, we were even able to create our very own Pampers “Firsts” video and you can do the same! Simply visit www.PampersFirsts.com! Then, as the party died down, the kids were thrilled to hand out all of the favor bags to our departing guests. All in all, it was a wonderful little event. I have personally been a fan of the Pampers brand for many years now and I certainly hope that you will take some time to cherish all of your own “Firsts.” After all, every first moment spent with your children is truly a gift!
You can purchase Pampers Swaddlers as well as many other Pampers products direct from their website as well as from many baby and children’s retailers both online and in-stores nationwide.
