Remember the time when your friends threw a baby shower for you? Did it catch you off-guard, or did someone accidentally leak some information that gave you a hint of what was going on? Do you remember how excited you were at the surprise of the shower –regardless of whether you had a hint about it or not? Seeing all the friends who matter in your life, together with your close family members all gathered to celebrate your entry into motherhood? And then, the moment you went ‘awwwwww….tears filling up your eyes as your friends exclaimed in unison “SURPRISE….” Do you remember the glow in your heart at that particular moment?
Okay I know that that’s not how all baby showers go, but at least for most of the one’s I’ve been to –including the baby shower that my pals threw for me (love you girls), that’s how showers often go.
And you know what else? Planning a baby shower takes quite some much of effort, detail, organizing, consultations, window shopping, money… everything to make that good friend of ours feel so special and loved. So you can imagine my joy at learning that ‘Pampers’ is now hosting surprise baby showers for a few lucky moms. Isn’t that good news!
In the shower, Pampers will give the expectant mom a couple of goodies that will be a great boost to her ‘must have items for the newborn’. The showers will also be graced by celebrity moms who will share her own motherhood experiences, especially those that relate to the time they were new moms.
And that’s not all. There will be medics (nurses and paediatricians) in the house who will offer the expectant mom advice about taking care of a newborn, as well as answer questions from her friends (some of them mothers) about child health. To add to the fun, the guests will enjoy special treats and receive goodie bags filled with Pampers products and other gifts.
Pampers knows the value of being prepared, and that’s why they are offering the surprise baby showers (open to women across the country and not only those in Nairobi), which will leave the expectant mom feeling more confident as she awaits the arrival of her little one.
So what do you need to do to have Pampers host that baby shower you’re organizing for your pal? Or, if you are expectant, you can nominate yourself to be the recipient of Pampers love and care. Just go over to the Pampers Facebook page here and look out for nominations posts, then go ahead and nominate that special mom-to-be! Trust me, she will always remember you for it, and forever thank you.
