Becoming a parent means trying to make everything #BetterForBaby.

Every child change the lives of those who love them, it’s a given. Each of my children have changed my life in unique ways. From the first child turning me into a Mother, to the last one who beat every single obstacle that came his way.


All of my children went through high risk pregnancies, all of my pregnancies had me in hospital bed rest for months, and the kids were all born between 38 and 22 weeks (38, 30, 28, 24, 22 weeks).  Needless to say that life was never normal or the same after each birth.  By the grace of God, all of the kids are healthy as can be and more active than they should be!

Pampers believes buy diflucan 200 mg online that even though babies are little, they are powerful agents of change.  Babies have a profound impact on our lives and on the world.

Of all of the kids, the youngest went through the most obstacles, during pregnancy and right after birth. On 4 occasions between pregnancy and birth we were told that there was less than a 10% chance of him making it.  He made it, and has continued to amaze us.



When Anthony was in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), I would speak to him, constantly telling him that he had to fight, he had to prove the Doctors wrong, and he had to get better so he could come home and be loved and cuddled.  I promised him that I would make sure that he was always taken care of. It’s been a Family affair, he takes advantage of being the baby of the Family; but we all are okay with that.


When a baby comes into your life, you want to be a better person for that baby. Babies bring out the best in each of us. They make our lives better. And that’s why there’s nothing each of us wouldn’t do to make life better for babies.

Fighting through 3 near death experiences while I was pregnant with him made me make certain goals and promises, not only to him; but for myself as well.

Since he has been born, I have made sure to be more affectionate with the kids, something my Mother always restrained from doing.  I also have made sure that I let them be kids, enjoy life, so many things that I wasn’t allowed to do as a child.

Pampers has unveiled a new video – The Pampers Better for Baby video– to celebrate the many ways babies bring out the best in all of us.
