Bringing Home Baby & The Diaper - What You Should Know + Giveaway

There is nothing sweeter than a brand new bundle of joy! I've been lucky enough to bring home five little ones during the last six years and each has brought me a new piece of joy.

When I remember back to bringing home my first baby I was fairly confident. As the oldest of six kids I was lucky to have experience with baby things like changing diapers, baths, and laundry. There were some things however that I wasn't quite ready for like the sleepless nights and the crazy feeling of my body changing drastically and quickly. Thankfully, I was able to have some great friends and family who helped me adjust. Today I am excited to share one of these old friends and their new tool to help you be the best parent possible to your newborn.

Today I am excited to share the our good friend Pampers (yes, the diaper people) have developed some great new tools for new moms to help them adjust to normal during those first few weeks. These include a Pampers Stool Color Cards and Diaper Rash Info that will be distributed at hospitals nationwide to ensure that every mom can bring her baby home with confidence.

The best news is that Pampers isn't going to stop there. They also have a Mommy Memory Match Sweepstakes going on HERE where you can win amazing prizes including six months of diapers and wipes for your little one (running through 1/31/15).

Can't wait until January? Then here's even better news! Pampers has agreed to partner with Kerrific to give one reader a $100 diaper starter set including:

Pampers Wipes 
Pampers Newborn or Size 1 Diapers 
Diaper Genie 
Diaper Genie Refills 
Portable Diaper Caddy

To enter simply use the form below. Congrats on the little one and good luck!

I was provided product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.


  1. My advice is is someone offers to help you out, take the help and get some much needed rest. Don't think you have to do it all alone

  2. If you really dont feel like doing anything dont. my husband picked up the slack after I had our daughter.

  3. Sleep when you can is my fav tip

  4. Don't worry about the laundry and dishes, take time to adjust and snuggle with your baby.

  5. My advice is sleep whenever possible and take advantage of help offered from people you trust.

  6. Take time to get out for a couple of hours, every few days (alone) to keep the blues away, it will make a world of difference. Paula C.

  7. I'm expecting my first child so I am on the receiving end of this advice and love reading your comments!
