Someday we may “convert” to the cloth diapering movement, but – for now – we’re using disposables with our 1-month-old (our older daughter has been potty trained and out of diapers since her 2nd birthday).
Our favorite brand of disposable diapers is Pampers (especially the Swaddlers – pictured right).
I like Pampers diapers because they are soft and flexible and hold in leaks.
I like Pampers – as a brand – because they are committed to making the world a better place.
In case you haven’t heard, Pampers is currently spearheading a campaign to help eradicate tetanus in undeveloped countries…
WHAT IT IS: The “One Pack = One Vaccine” campaign is a global initiative with UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT), a preventable disease that claims the lives of approximately 128,000 infants and up to 30,000 mothers in less industrialized nations each year – that’s approximately one newborn death every four minutes.
FIND OUT MORE: Nightline aired a segment on the campaign in early February and it’s quite moving. One especially sweet moment in the clip is when Salma Hayek breastfeeds an African baby to show the mothers in that culture that breastfeeding is safe and beneficial for babies.
BE A PART OF IT: From February 5 through May 1, 2009, parents in the U.S. and Canada have the opportunity to help UNICEF protect moms and babies around the world against tetanus, by simply purchasing specially-marked packages of Pampers diapers and wipes. Each product purchased triggers one life-saving vaccine. Just look for the UNICEF logo on the packaging when you shop.
YOUR TURN: Do you use cloth or disposable diapers? Why or why not? What is your favorite brand of diapers?
