As a member of the Double Duty Divas network, I applied for and was chosen a couple weeks ago to participate in the Pampers Gift of Sleep Give Back program. As part of the program, I received my package included Pampers product as well as $100 gift card to give me the opportunity to give the “Gift of Sleep” to a family or baby in my community. Plus, we were also given the opportunity to host a giveaway with the Give Back post, which includes a Sleep Sheep Sound Machine, cozy blankets for Mom/Baby and a $50 gift card. But, to make it official, I need to include this legalese disclaimer: This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I applied for this program because I was really excited about having the opportunity to give someone a gift not because of the “perks” so I decided to gift not just one packaging, but both! So basically, I’m receiving nothing in return except the satisfaction that I’m making two wonderful moms happy when they receive their packages. Well, actually three… the $100 gift recipient, the $50 gift recipient and the giveaway recipient. That makes me ubber happy. Yay!
My first recipient… I chose a friend from my photography network. Now, I’ve never met her in person, but we’ve interacted a lot of have become friends online over the last few years. I love her work, of course. Her name is Arden Prucha. Arden is a wedding and portrait photographer in Fort Worth, TX, who owns Arden Prucha Photography. When I heard about the Pampers Gift of Sleep program, my immediate choice was Arden and I really hoped I would be chosen just to do the program for her. Arden recently had a new baby girl, Lake Louise. She’s beautiful, but Lake was diagnosed with Ebstein’s Anomaly at 36 weeks gestation. She was born at 37.5 weeks and had open HEART surgery at two days old. She is on the road to recovery and will have two more surgeries by the time she is three. This was my reason. Arden has been handling this so well and little Lake is definitely a fighter. They are both amazing and I wanted to send them a little something for a while now as a small gift. When this program came, I thought perfect timing to give them something even more! So, I went shopping at good ol’ Target for Arden with the $100 gift card and here’s what I bought for Arden. Some things to get pampered and some reading material for her to catch up some things because she hasn’t had time for anything else.
I pampers diapers were the diapers in my package provided by Pampers. I’m actually gifting the Pampers baby dry diapers to Lake and the swaddlers to my $50 gift recipient. I’m also sending the blanket on the bottom right. That’s a patchwork blanket I handmade from my Yippy BeBe shop. I really wanted to give Lake something a little special … one of a kind … and the blanket I felt was the perfect gift to send her some loving cuddles from us here.
I’ll be shipping everything tomorrow in a card box, but I decided to put everything into a Bugaboo diaper bag I have. I actually bought this bag to check it out and compare it to other diaper bags I was checking out when I was looking at how they’re made (you know as a person who designs and hand makes diaper bags and changing pads, I can’t help myself). When I bought the bag, I had the intention to give it to someone as a gift since I was not planning on using it. I never got around to it, so this is the perfect chance for me to give it as a gift! Hope Arden and Lake like it.
Here’s everything going together.
As soon as I receive the $50 gift card and a giveaway winner is chosen, I’ll do another post of what I’ll be buying then. Yay!
The whole point of the program is to give the Gift of Sleep. It’s such a great concept. Pampers has tied it with their overnight diaper product so parents can sleep through the night when they’re babies start without needing to worry about changing them at night.
Highlights about their product:
- Pampers Swaddlers, Pampers’ softest diaper and the #1 choice of hospitals, is now available through size 5.
- Pampers Cruisers are now more absorbent and offer Pampers’ best fit for all the ways babies play freely.
And of course, enter the giveaway through the rafflecopter entry form below. Rafflecopter will randomly select a winner on October 25, 2013.

Share for more entries and other ways to gain more entries below (the extra ways for additional entries were not required by Pampers and while Arden knows I’m sending her a gift through this program she doesn’t know what I’m sending and she doesn’t know I included Lake’s fanpage on here either for more likes to their fanpage. I just wanted to add them as an extra way to share their story and for everyone to earn entires if you want to).
