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!

    I use blackout curtains.

  2. Rebecca Orr November 2, 2013 at 3:40 PM  

    We darken our room with blackout curtains,

  3. Natalie S November 2, 2013 at 7:14 PM  

    I just keep our routine as usual and the boys adjust quite well.

  4. Janet W. November 2, 2013 at 7:30 PM  

    My grandsons rooms are darkened with curtains.

  5. Tara Overby November 2, 2013 at 7:36 PM  

    I've never done anything special with my daughter. She seems to adjust with no problems luckily!

  6. April M November 2, 2013 at 7:51 PM  

    My little one adjusts really well. We keep the same routine and she falls right into it.

  7. Rebecca Parsons November 2, 2013 at 8:03 PM  

    If it's a question of being too light then darker curtains or pulling the shades helps a lot.

  8. Cserafini November 2, 2013 at 8:17 PM  

    We keep the same routine.

  9. Jessica B. November 2, 2013 at 8:49 PM  

    A sounds machine and black out curtains help my son. jj250@aol.com

  10. Michele November 2, 2013 at 8:51 PM  

    We keep the same routine

  11. Jennifer T. November 2, 2013 at 9:46 PM  

    I try to make sure the kids get a good nap early in the day and stick to our routine.

  12. Katie S November 2, 2013 at 10:20 PM  

    Well I haven't done so well lately with sticking to my boys' bedtimes! Ugh. They have curtains that darken their rooms also. I run fans in their rooms as well for "white noise" and they are pretty good sleepers.

  13. Kelly Nicholson November 2, 2013 at 10:20 PM  

    What is one way you help with the transition of the end of Daylight Savings time?

    i try to make sure i get me sleep in order

  14. BeeBubbaBella November 2, 2013 at 10:46 PM  

    We don't do anything we just go with it. It has worked for all 5 kids

  15. Rochel S November 2, 2013 at 11:03 PM  

    My kids sleep all year with blackout curtains so just hoping they will adjust on their own. I did put them to sleep a little later so that hopefully they will wake up later.....

  16. aperry November 2, 2013 at 11:24 PM  

    we keep things the same and let our boys bodies adjust.

  17. Kim Pollock November 2, 2013 at 11:25 PM  

    We forgot about it but my kids will adjust:) They always can use extra sleep!


  18. BrunoDogg2 November 2, 2013 at 11:41 PM  

    I just have them go to bed later starting on Friday so they don't wake up to early! It seems to work for us that way we will be back to "normal" be the time school starts :)

  19. Tj and Amy November 3, 2013 at 12:20 AM  

    stay on the same schedule. amypugmire@live.com

  20. mrsshukra November 3, 2013 at 1:05 AM  

    No DST here in Hawaii!

  21. Carrie Phelps November 3, 2013 at 5:47 AM  

    I have always found we didn't have to transition because with the time change it's totally dark here at 5 pm.

  22. Jennifer Rogers November 3, 2013 at 6:45 AM  

    We have never had a hard time transitioning, they seem to do better with the time change since it is no longer dark when it is time to go to school!

  23. Laura November 3, 2013 at 7:21 AM  

    There is very little transition here for us. We keep the routine the same!

  24. Kari Crum November 3, 2013 at 8:23 AM  

    My kids are teens so it's really not a problem for us. We carry on with our routine as usual. They enjoy getting the extra hour of sleep.

  25. KJ Skib November 3, 2013 at 8:49 AM  

    I tried to keep them up a little bit, about a half hour later, to slowly transition the time change.

  26. Ashley November 3, 2013 at 10:40 AM  

    We adjust bedtime and use blackout curtains


  27. D Schmidt mummytotwoboys November 3, 2013 at 11:53 AM  

    We just black out curtains and tend to alter bedtime for a few days

  28. Frugal Tumbleweed Acres November 3, 2013 at 12:59 PM  

    We just have the same old routine.

  29. Cassandra Eastman November 3, 2013 at 1:24 PM  

    I usually end up keeping my kids up an hour later so they'll sleep longer.

  30. Jayna E November 3, 2013 at 4:11 PM  

    We don't do anything special. It's a great natural transition really! The kids go to bed earlier like they should and get up easier in the mornings!

  31. denisekonkel November 3, 2013 at 4:15 PM  

    Try adjusting a few days prior

  32. Anonymous November 3, 2013 at 9:27 PM  

    I try not to take that extra hour of sleep but it really doesnt bother me. I prefer the spring forward though.

  33. Elliot November 3, 2013 at 10:01 PM  

    We go cold turkey! Same times. (lynn w on rafflecopter)

  34. BeckyM November 3, 2013 at 10:12 PM  

    We have never done anything special!

  35. Eileen Richter November 4, 2013 at 4:16 AM  

    We don't really DO anything about it, but it is harder to adapt as the kids get older. We try to eat earlier if there is not sports on the calendar. They actually go to bed earlier at night (well, for teens anyway) because it gets so dark so early it seems like night forEVER. Now, as for baby girl, we shall see. She is going to be an hour earlier because she needs to adjust to getting up for daycare starting this week.

    thank you

  36. lisamercy November 4, 2013 at 2:37 PM  

    i keep them up and hope they sleep in alittle!

  37. amanda hoffman November 4, 2013 at 3:08 PM  

    wake up hour early next day

  38. Amy W. November 4, 2013 at 9:57 PM  

    We don't have any trouble adjusting, but I love the black out curtains idea.

  39. Becky Fluff November 4, 2013 at 11:04 PM  

    I ease into it over a few days!

  40. Nicole-Lynn November 5, 2013 at 7:23 PM  

    Going to bed at the same time every night so my body isn't too confused :) I'm in the homestretch of my pregnancy, expecting my first baby this month, so sleep has been difficult lately. Thanks for the opportunity.

  41. jakiesmom November 5, 2013 at 10:25 PM  

    I close the curtains so the light doesn't affect them

  42. Monica November 6, 2013 at 2:37 PM  

    We invested in a pair of blackout curtains which seem to have done the trick!

  43. Allie G November 6, 2013 at 4:08 PM  

    I don't do anything different

  44. Amelia Drew November 9, 2013 at 2:49 PM  

    I try to change our routine a few minutes a day until the time changes and then we are already ready

  45. Kerry November 11, 2013 at 6:34 AM  

    I usually just wait it out until we get used to the time change.

  46. Lindy Davison November 13, 2013 at 8:16 PM  

    Napping has always been a little stressful, but as my son has gotten older he seems to sleep better at night. I'm not really having to change our routine
