One of my favorite things to do in the world, if not my favorite, is to brighten someone’s day. When I was given the opportunity by Pampers to give the “Gift of Sleep” to new parents, I jumped at the chance. I knew just who could use the “Gift of Sleep”! My sister, who gave birth to my super cute nephew Benjamin, earlier this year.

Thanks to Pampers, I was able to surprise my sister Liz, with the Gift of Sleep, and boy was it fun! My sister become a first time mom 17 years ago, and there is quite the age gap between my niece and nephew. It’s been a bit of a rough adjustment because my super cute nephew, doesn’t like to sleep through the night. I knew I wanted to give her a good night of sleep. Pampers gifted us with a $100 gift card, and I put it to good use.

I know one of the first things I had to do was give my sister some diapers! I bought her a few boxes of Pampers Baby Dry in size 3. I know that a leaky diaper could is usually the reasons why babies wake up, and I knew keeping him dry would be the key to sleep. I also bought him some warm, and snuggly pjs, because being warm and dry, is the key to a good night of sleep!

Pampers is making changes and upgrading all of their diaper brands. They have interviewed over 9,000 moms to find out just what is important and priority, when it comes to their sweet babies. Pampers really listened to all of the moms, and made some major changes.

Here are some major changes to the diaper brands you have come to know and love from Pampers:

  • Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers’ softest diaper and the #1 choice of hospitals, is now available through size 5.
  • Pampers Baby Dry is up to three times drier than ordinary diapers and provides up to 12 hours of overnight protection and three layers of absorbency.
  • Pampers Cruisers are now more absorbent and offer Pampers’ best fit for all the ways babies play freely.

I know that these changes will bring parents across the nation the “Gift of Sleep”. I know that there is nothing more important for not only parents, but also for babies!

 

Pampers wants you to give the “gift of sleep” to someone special. All you have to do is let me know who you would give the “gift of sleep” to? Leave a comment, and one lucky reader will be selected at random. Giveaway ends on November 1st at 11:59pm. Good luck!

I love October. The air is crisp, and Halloween decorations are everywhere! My kiddos are going to be heading out for a fun night of trick-or-treating, and I’m going to have a sweet treat brewing for them when they return. I’m making them homemade pumpkin spice steamers, or leche con canela y calabaza. Yum!

This recipe is super easy to make, and I’m pretty sure you have everything that is needed at home.

So easy to make. You'll be making it almost every day!

All you need to make is milk, sugar, cinnamon sticks, a dash of pumpkin spice, a teaspoon of condensed milk, and a teenie bit of pumpkin, if you would like. I also made a batch without the pumpkin. This coupon for $1 off two gallons of milk, will make it even better!

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tablespoon of sweetened  condensed milk
  • 4 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice
  • 1 dash of pumpkin

Add milk, condensed milk, pumpkin, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan. Cook on low for about 5 minutes. Add sugar, and pumpkin spice until it dissolves. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
