This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Dana Vollmer

Pampers is thrilled to partner with swimmer Dana Vollmer, for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, her first Olympic Games since giving birth to her son, Arlen, last March. Dana was committed to getting back into swimming after becoming a mom, so that her baby son, Arlen, could grow up recognizing the importance of hard work from a young age. She wanted Arlen to grow up seeing his mom achieving her dreams as a competitive swimmer, and hopefully ignite his own passions for success. Love and encouragement from her family are what led Dana back to the pool. Her journey to Rio is one that she will share with them, and her goal of winning gold at this year’s Olympic Games is not just her dream – it’s her family’s dream. I think this is amazing and being a mom myself, I know how easy it is to lose yourself once you have kids. You can become so focused on them and their dreams that you forget about yourself and your dreams. That is one of the reasons I run this site – I love doing it and I know that I need to stick with my dreams and goals, so that my girls will see me achieving them.

“Being a strong mom means doing everything you’re capable of doing to create the best life for your child. For me I want to show how dedication, hard work, and perseverance can help my son accomplish any dream that he sets his sights on. Being a mom is both challenging and rewarding in ways far beyond what I could ever have imagined. What works for me is to call on my inner strength and to make sure I never lose sight of who I am as a person – that’s how I can ensure I’m being the best mom I can be for Arlen. Sleep is important in the balance of everything. I need the energy to train and just keep up with Arlen! Arlen is a great sleeper and I use Pampers diapers which provides 12 hour protection that helps him get a sound night of sleep so he can achieve his dreams.” – Dana Vollmeer

Pampers knows that the big dreams of babies start with a good night’s sleep, which is why they’ve created products designed to help little ones sleep comfortably by offering overnight protection. A good night’s sleep for baby means a good night’s sleep for mommy and daddy too (we can all agree with that!). Pampers diapers provide overnight protection that helps babies have a sound night of sleep, so they can achieve their dreams. Pampers can be trusted to provide overnight protection for you little ones. Meaning less laundry in the morning (diaper leaks are the worst thing to wake up to!) and more sleep for everyone in the house.
