Pampers' Give the Gift of Sleep

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.
Recently, a friend from work had her second baby girl. She's a gorgeous baby but apparently cries a lot (always seems to be the second child that cries the most), so mommy and daddy haven't been getting much sleep. To top it off, Mommy came back to work after a week of giving birth and Daddy started a new job, therefore, their sleep has been really lacking. Thankfully, Pampers and Double Duty Divas gave me the opportunity to give back the gift of sleep to these two. 

At first I couldn't really think of anything to help them out but then I started to remember how much I long for a night in with the hubby and no child. Those nights are very limited for new parents and I figured I would try to help them out a bit. 
To get my gift of sleep started, Pampers and Double Duty Divas sent along a pack of Pampers' Baby Dry diapers, Pampers' Swaddlers diapers, and a $100 gift card. Pamper's Swaddlers were my favorite diapers when my daughter was a newborn. They're so soft and stretchy and they fit real nice on that tiny baby bottom. I also loved the Pampers' Baby Dry diapers as they seemed to tame down diaper rash and keep the baby's bottom dry. 
For the gift basket I obviously chose a nice laundry basket because what mom doesn't always need a new laundry basket? I then lined the laundry basket with the most cozy blanket for mom I could find. I loaded the rest of the laundry basket with 2 boxes of popcorn, a bottle of wine, a stress relief facial mask, mud masks, a hot/cold eye mask, $25 gift card for takeout, a new candle, a neck wrap, a $15 gift card for Starbucks (because she loves the Refreshers), and Pampers' baby wipes. 
Mommy was pretty excited when I handed her the laundry basket and explained to her what I was up to. It's such a great feeling to be able to give something back to a new mom and  I really hope Mommy and Daddy get to utilize my gift of sleep soon! Thank you Pampers and Double Duty Divas for this wonderful opportunity!

Smiling It Forward with Tylenol

I'm SMILING IT FORWARD™ because seeing the smiles on my daughter's face after breaking a fever, gives me a great sense of relief. I can't imagine not having access to healthcare for my child.

My daughter had the Chicken Pox for almost 3 weeks and when she finally got clearance to go out in public without fear of spreading to others, we took her to the local apple orchard to play around and pick apples. She had so much fun she napped the whole way home. Just seeing her finally out and enjoying herself for a few hours after a long stretch of being home bound, brought me tons of joy. She was all smiles!
How I Met Your Mother star Alyson Hannigan, and the makers of TYLENOL® want your help in SMILING IT FORWARD™! SMILING IT FORWARD™ was inspired by all the "feel better" photos that moms already share all over social media outlets. Tylenol and SMILING IT FORWARD™ makes it super easy for you to join the movement. By participating and sharing a photo that makes you smile at SmilingItForward.com, TYLENOL® will make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund.*
