Blogging has it’s perks and the best event of the year so far was the invite for me and Little Sis to meet Paula Radcliffe. I have photographic evidence:
Yes she is tiny and I am huge but doesn’t Little Sis look pretty?! Moving on….
We were there to celebrate Pampers who have teamed up with Paula Radcliffe to celebrate babies’ spirit of play through the Pampers Little Athlete campaign. Did you know a cruising baby can take as many steps as a marathon runner in a race within 24 hours?
As the world’s greatest athletes descend upon London for the 2012 Olympic Games, Pampers, a P&G brand, has teamed up with Paula Radcliffe, Olympic Games marathon runner and mum to Raphael (16 months) and Isla (4 years), to launch the ‘Pampers Little Athlete’ campaign – helping mums celebrate the playtime achievements of their own little athletes.
To salute the spirit of play in every baby across the UK, Pampers is introducing a Limited Edition GB Design Active Fit nappy, allowing mums and babies to show their national pride.
Parents can learn a lot from how their babies play, and how best to support and nurture their own unique spirit of play. That’s why Pampers has developed the Pampers Little Athlete campaign. Created with the help of Pampers Village Parenting Panel baby development expert, Dr Maggie Redshaw, the campaign provides parents with tips and advice on how to encourage their babies’ play, through a series of online videos, featuring Paula Radcliffe and her son, Raphael.
To find out more about the Pampers Little Athlete campaign go to the Pampers UK & Ireland Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/PampersUKIre).
Pampers Active Fit nappies are available in size 3 (9-20lbs / 4-9kg), size 4 (25-44lbs / 7-18kg), 4+ (20-44lbs / 9-20kg) and size 5 (24+ lbs / 11-25kg). A carry pack costs around £6.49 RRP.
Pampers celebrates the potential in every baby and by sharing your ‘newborn’ advice you could win a £50 voucher to a spa or restaurant of your choice. Interested? Read on!
Knowing my Second Baby is due next week (eek!) Pampers asked me if I would like to help celebrate by sharing with other Mums the best piece of ‘newborn’ advice we were given. After much discussion with my husband we thought the best piece of advice was to do with nappy changes! At our NCT antenatal class we were told if we had a boy to change his nappy swiftly, otherwise the cold air could cause him to wee before we had a chance to grab a clean nappy! We always remembered this piece of advice which helped those frequent early nappy changes pass without incident.
I would love to know what readers of the gingerbread house think is their own best piece of ‘newborn’ advice. In return, anyone who shares their advice by commenting below could be in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher to a spa or restaurant of their choice. Pampers are hoping to get as many mums as possible, who are active online, to share their invaluable advice with other mums. They have also created the twitter hash tag #newmumtips in case you want to share your advice on twitter too.
Don’t forget – expectant mums can also register at Pampers Village and get a FREE Baby Welcome Pack at 32 weeks filled with some first day essentials, including ten Pampers New Baby nappies, a travel pack of Pampers wipes – perfect to pop into a hospital bag – and a copy of the Pampers Village magazine. Mums can now also connect with other mums for info and advice on the Pampers UK & Ireland Facebook page.
I have one £50 voucher to give to a reader of the gingerbread house which can be used at a spa or restaurant of your choice.
