Pampers celebrates #everybaby

With every baby there comes the same excitement and anticipation for their arrival. Whether our first, second, or third baby, we were so excited to meet each one and see the new little person who would be joining our family. Like every mum, I remember each of their births and early days so well – all three were different but equally special, and all of those days are such treasured memories for me.

I absolutely love babies. The baby stage was always something I enjoyed and now that my youngest is nearly 4 (how did that happen??? time really does fly!) I do find myself missing those little baby cuddles.

Luckily there always seems to be lots of pregnant friends and relatives, so I can share in their excitement instead. Right now I’m getting really excited to hear news of a close friends baby who should be arriving any time now. They haven’t found out whether boy or girl so I can’t wait to find out!

On the same day that the nation celebrates one special birth, Pampers partners with award winning director to celebrate #everybaby 

Pampers know that every beautiful baby is a prince of princess to their parents, and with 2,000 babies born every day in the UK, each deserve the same joyous celebrations to mark their birthday! At a time of national celebration around one special birth, Pampers wants to celebrate #everybaby born into a world of love, sleep & play in a new captivating film directed by award winning documentary maker, Elizabeth Stopford.

London & UK Top Baby Names 2014

It’s always fun to see the name trends each year. As a child, my sister and I used to make lots of lists of our favourite baby names (I’m sure we were not the only ones!) and I always found it fascinating to see how the trends vary by nation, and even among different regions of the UK.

As a Londoner, I’m sure we have our own “London” style of baby names that you hear around here more than the rest of the country and research from Bounty has found the same.

It’s six years now since we first brought a baby home from the hospital as new parents, but it really doesn’t seem so long ago! I remember so well all those feelings of love and excitement as we set out on our journey into parenthood for the first time. All babies are special, but first babies are a real learning curve. As you transition from a couple into a little family you find life changing and adapting so much, meanwhile you get to grips with nappies, feeding, and needing to pack a zillion things when you leave the house! Parenting a new baby for the first time, although so exciting, can also be daunting as you learn how to handle all the common illnesses and ailments and may be worrying whether you’ve done everything correctly.
