Being a parent is pretty much the most life-changing thing that a person can do. Intentionally or accidentally, becoming a parent WILL change you, usually for the better. That is because when you love someone else even more than you love yourself, you will do anything to make sure they are taken care of.
I am not, nor have I ever been, a morning person. To this day, I have no desire to ever get up early. That does not stop me from getting up early after staying up almost all night at times, to care for my children. And while I may not shine when I rise, I never think twice about it. It is who I am now. I do it out of love, and tired though I might be, I am happy to do it.
That is just one minuscule example of the way my life has changed since becoming a parent. There are so many other ways that I cannot even speak to, because it is not just one distinctive trait, but my entire personality and mindset have been shaped by parenthood. People always focus on how parents shape their children, which is absolutely true, but it is often forgotten just how much a child can shape a parent.
Whether is is going from only being satisfied with a spotless home to being happy when there is only two loads of laundry piled up and half a sink full of dishes or it is preferring a bedtime story and a hug to a night on the town, my life has changed drastically, and I could not be happier.
There is absolutely nothing I would not do to make life better for my children. Pampers knows all about that, which is what brought about their Better For Baby campaign. The Better For Baby Campaign is a program that recognizes how babies have the ability to bring out the best in all of us and that is why we should do our part to make life better for them.
Since babies bring out the best in us, we should ensure we do whatever it takes to make life better for them. That includes now, but also in the future, by making the world a better place for them to grow up in.
Pampers is a brand who has supported the happy, healthy development of babies for more than 50 years. Pampers is committed to doing their small part to making life #BetterForBaby through their core brand commitments. These commitments are: protecting premature babies, helping families in need through product donations, preventing maternal and neonatal tetanus and reducing their environmental impact. In fact, at the launch of this program, Pampers made significant donations to Graham’s Foundation, UNICEF and Feeding America in recognition of their valued partnership in helping Pampers support the happy, healthy development of babies.

I made a pledge already. I pledged to have more patience with my children. Even when you feel like you have the patience of a saint, there are always times where you lose your patience, it is only human. While I always try very hard to be patient, I do find myself getting frustrated, and I am going to work harder on that. Do you have a pledge in mind?How can you make life #BetterForBaby?
