Diapers are an everyday necessity for my baby, and Pampers continues to create amazing products to keep my baby happy and comfortable (which keeps me happy) and has now done it again with their Pampers Rewards app to treat moms each time her little ones call her for a changing.
Changing your baby’s diapers now has another benefit! In addition to knowing your child is growing and on its way to meeting all its milestones, the Pampers Rewards app has made it as easy as 1-2-3 to reward both you and your baby with amazing products simply for doing what you love.
I’ve been part of the Pampers Rewards program for over 10 years as a mom of 5 children. I know, I know – that’s a lot of kids and a lot of diapers! But, whether you have 1 child or 10, Pampers products make buying diapers a little more fun when you know you are getting something back in return. Plus, you can’t beat the quality that Pampers offers your precious baby’s tush!
My hope for you, mommas, is to start your breastfeeding journey more confidently than I did.
