Ding Dong Diaper Ditch and a Giveaway

When I was pregnant with my first child, I secretly wanted to feel spoiled and was hoping to have a fun little party with my family and friends. I felt like it was finally my turn to wear the silly hat made of bows and laugh as guests took part in equally silly games. Alas, I wasn't so lucky to have a baby shower or to get to sign up for a baby registry but was utterly delighted when my co-workers surprised me with a very thoughtful party one day after work. There's something about being pregnant and getting showered with attention and some baby gifts that makes the whole experience all the more special. So when I was offered a chance to surprise an expectant mom with some P&G products as part of the Ding Dong Diaper Ditch movement, how could I resist?


One of my colleagues at work is expecting her first and I was so excited to drop off a bundle of essentials outside her classroom door this morning. I guess I should call it a Knock Knock Diaper Ditch... It included a package of Pampers Swaddler Diapers, Ivory Snow Liquid Detergent, Sensitive Wipes, a Canada onesie with matching bib and a copy of “Caring for Kids: The Complete Guide to Children’s Health.”




To fancy it up, I decided to make one of my diaper cakes that I enjoy making so much. My kids even helped to roll up the individual diapers and secure them with a rubber band. Then we layered them around a paper towel roll and secured with larger rubber bands which were later hidden behind some ribbon. (For step-by-step instructions, check out my diaper cake tutorial as featured on Practical Mum.) Then I arranged them on an easy-to-carry wooden photo tray that she can later use to display photos of the baby. I also threw in the Pampers coupon and the Gifts to Grow points sticker from the package of diapers.


Shortly after I knocked on her classroom door, she was surprised to find her first ever baby gift. The look on her face clearly showed how overjoyed she felt. Mission accomplished!
