Nominating Our Favorite NICU Nurse With Pampers #ThankYouNurses & A Giveaway

This review was made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.






When I was pregnant with our daughter, Peyton I needed to deliver her at 27 weeks due to pre eclampsia and HELLP syndrome. Those were some really scary days we lived through. 

If we didn't have such an amazing NICU nurse, I honestly don't know how we would have survived. Our nurse Pansy, was the most compasonate, funny, good hearted nurse we had. She allowed us to be our childs advocate and take care of our baby girl as much as we could. 

Pampers is launching the Thank You Nurses Awards program, honoring nurses across three award categories: Labor & Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Postpartum.  Pampers invites parents to share their stories of nurses who helped make life #betterforbaby by submitting a nurse nomination to the Pampers Swaddlers Thank You Nurses Awards atwww.tongal.com/pampersnurses. Nurse nominations can be submitted between November 9th and December 14th

This year we will be nominating our NICU nurse who took care of Peyton. 





  • Three finalists, one in each category (Labor & Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Postpartum), will be announced in March and the grand prize honoree will be announced in May.
  • The three finalists will be honored with short documentary videos showcasing their unique and inspirational nursing stories.
  • Each of the three finalists will receive a one-year membership to the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), attendance at the 2016 AWHONN Convention, Procter & Gamble care packages, and more. Visit tongal.com/pampersnurses for full prizing details.
  • In honor of these nurse winners, three Pampers Swaddlers scholarships will be made available to help nurses from underrepresented groups complete their studies toward a Master of Science in Nursing degree.




As parents we always want what is best for our children, why not start with the amazing nurses that help take care our our children the second they arrive into the world?

 The Pamper #ThankYouNurses Twitter Party, hosted by iConnect will take place on November 19 from 8-9pmCST.  

Prizes will include:
Prize 1: $50 AMEX plus diapers and wipes

My favorite nurse that most stands out is Nurse Janet. When I had my first baby, everything was totally new to me and my milk wasn't coming in. She told me to start pumping (as well as having the baby suck on my breast like I was doing). After trying a couple of pumping sessions, my milk finally came in and I was so relieved. I wish I would have started pumping to help get the milk going right away, but am so thankful to her for her advice! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com

My bff is honestly one of the most caring and talented nurses I know. She genuinely cares and puts her whole self into her work to ensure that her patients receive the quality of care and attention that they deserve. Additionally, my favorite nurse and BFF just had her first baby last week - a beautful baby boy. I would love to see her receive recognition for all of her hard work and selfless spirit!

Thanks for the chance to win!
