The Very First Mother’s Day: Celebrating New Moms #ThanksBaby @Pampers


When a baby is born, a mom is born. This Mother’s Day, Pampers wanted to say thanks to little ones for the unconditional love that fills the hearts of moms. I remember my first Mother’s Day. It was probably one of the greatest days of my life. I knew from very early on that I wanted to have children and once it actually happened, I was truly forever changed.

Last week, thanks to Pampers , I was able to honor two special women in my life with their very own celebration. A “Welcome to Motherhood” party – if you will! Pampers wanted to thank babies for making new mommies and so… they gave several members of their “Pampers Baby Board” gift cards to go out and indulge other women in our lives. So fun!

On Mother’s Day and every day, Pampers celebrates that incredible moment when a baby is born and mom’s world magically changes. Thanks, baby, for making the world a happier place for mom and teaching her how to grow, learn, and love more than she’s ever imagined.


I love to shop. I think you know that… and so I created two huge gift baskets for both Jennifer and Julie. I filled them with things that I knew they would love! From candles, to eye masks, to summer hats and more — you name it and I included it in their oversized straw bags.

I wanted these women to have the tools they needed to pamper themselves at home whenever they found the time. Motherhood is many things, but it is also all-consuming. In the beginning, women have to carve out special moments to do a facial to exfoliate their skin. At least now, they can have everything they need at the palm of their hands!

Both Julie and Jennifer are working moms who are loving every single second of motherhood. They get to look into the eyes of their little baby girls every day and see their brand new creations, but sometimes need a moment to themselves. So happy that Pampers stepped in to help these moms get a little pampering.

I’ve actually known Jennifer my entire life – a family friend. So, to be able to hold her baby girl in my arms and to have her as part of this program was a really special thing for me.

Moms everywhere should look to other moms in their community and lean in. It’s important to remember everyone could use a helping hand every now and then … and everyone could also use a surprise scented candle too! LOL!

Both new moms were so happy to receive Pampers diapers and wipes as part of their packages. We ALL KNOW HOW GREAT IT IS TO HAVE A STOCKPILE of our favorites in the house for when we run out.
