As a mom of a little one who still wears diapers at night, I know how important it is to have a superior dry diaper. This especially comes to mind during time-change transitions such as End of Daylight Savings Time which is coming up soon! That's why I was excited to learn about some improvements made to the newest Pampers Baby Dry Diapers!
This is something that many moms will appreciate, especially considering that when interviewing over 9,000 moms, Pampers found the number one unmet need is a diaper that provides superior overnight dryness. Now both mom and baby can count on a diaper that will provide up to 12 hours of overnight protection!
This is perfect timing with End of Daylight Savings Time quickly approaching. Over half of moms (52%) feel that their baby's sleep patterns are thrown off when the clocks "fall back' and Daylight Savings Time ends. I am one of those moms! I always feel like our sleep schedule is thrown off and takes quite some time to get used to again...especially the kids who are 2 and under! To help with the time change, it's important to me that my baby in diapers sleeps as comfortably as possible and I feel that these diapers can help with that transition!
Pampers sent me a package which included a few things that would help my baby's slumber, including a pack of Pampers Baby Dry diapers, Children's Place PJ's and Kim West aka "The Sleep Lady's" tips to help with the End of Daylight Savings sleep transition.
The Pampers Baby Dry diapers are available in sizes 1-6. This is a wide range which means many baby can benefit from a more restful night sleep. This in turn will hopefully allow them to be less fussy and more content during the day! YAY! The includes an ultra absorb core to cover up to 95% of overnight loads and three layers of absorbency vs two (the amount found in ordinary diapers).
We've been testing them out and so far are really liking them. They seem to keep Caysen comfortable not only with the extra absorbency, but also the design. They are snug, but have stretchy sides which help them fit him well and comfortably. Of course, the high quality (and super cute!) pjs also help to get a good night's sleep!
As I mentioned, with Daylight savings time ending on Sunday (November 3rd), we also received tips to help with the sleep transition...to help our kids adjust to the time change gradually so they don't need to make a large adjustment all at once. There were 10 tips that can help help, and I had a few favorites that I thought would definitely help make a smooth transition when we fall back one hour.
The first was to help your baby sleep more soundly, consider installing blackout curtains and using a sound machine! We recently did these things in our youngest son's room and I'm hoping it will help with the transition.
The second is to ensure that your children know when it's time to sleep, rely on your established soothing bedtime routine. We have a bedtime routine that we'll stick to, even with the time change and I know this will help the kids understand when it's time to go to sleep. It will also be important to us to use one of the overnight diapers to help keep Caysen comfortable while he sleeps.
The third tip, which I thought was great, was to slowly adjust your child's bedtime and naptimes an hour earlier, just 15-30 minutes a day for a few days before daylight savings ends. That way children will already be adjusted to the time change. This is a very practical tip and one I am already starting to do with my kids to help prepare them for the change.
I am happy to have learned more about these tips and diapers. I am also excited to share that there will be a #PampersSleepChat Twitter Party with Pampers on November 7th at 9pm EST. We will chat about how the end of Daylight Savings Time can affect sleep patterns and get more tips on easing the transition from The Sleep Lady, Kim West!
