My 20-month-old son, A.J., has never been the perfect sleeper but lucky for us it is getting better. I attribute it to the fact that he has always been super curious and always wants to explore and take in everything! So, when it came time to sleep, it would take a lot of patience and a consistent sleep schedule for him to get the best rest. His sleep would always fair better if we stayed on his routine and that included making sure he was comfortable by having the right diaper to keep him dry during his naps or throughout the night.
And the right diaper doesn’t mean a thicker diaper. Who needs all that bulkiness? I really don’t need to buy bigger clothes for A.J. because of some big diaper that still doesn’t do the job! No thanks.
Pampers is a great example of the rightdiaper for child & parents. Ordinary diapers get wetter and bulkier through the night, but Pampers Baby Dry provides up to 12 hours of protection and exclusive Extra Absorb Channels for a less bulky and more comfortable fit.* That pretty much equals a small slice of heaven because that means this mama can sleep, too!
(*vs. previous Baby Dry)
Pampers diapers undergo extensive testing with pediatricians, dermatologists and moms, to ensure products meet and exceed the needs of their most important customers – babies. Pampers baby Dry diapers are now enhanced with Extra Absorb Channels, yet they are still made from the same gentle materials you have come to trust to give your baby up to 12 hours of overnight protection.
Now, don’t get me wrong, this boy CAN SLEEP, when he wants to, but it is usually on his schedule (which we learned by paying attention to his specific cues) and he will sleep for long periods when his tummy is happy & full. That sounds like most of us, right? How many filling meals have you had and then wanted to immediately conk out & take a good ‘ol nap after? >Hand raised high!< That’s just A.J.’s personality & knowing his sleep habits helps me be able to tailor the right sleep routine for a better days/nights rest. It makes all our lives easier when this kiddo is well-rested!

After taking the quiz I found out my son has a STARFISH sleep personality, which means sleep is top priority for this little one but I think he has also has what I think is a KOALA personality, which for me means he can have clingy tendencies that have him sleeping best when he’s with mama or senses mama is nearby. Otherwise it can be hit or miss.
Whatever your child’s sleep personality you can never go wrong with this advice: Have the best diaper to keep them dry throughout their slumber and follow their sleep cues to make sure they get the best sleep possible.

1. Diapers should be effective every day, all day, but overnight is when they are really put to the test because babies urinate 1.5 times more during sleep at night.
2. By the age of two, the average baby will have spent more time asleep than all other waking activities combined!
3. A baby can urinate up to 12 times a night, that’s a lot of opportunities to interrupt their sleep (source: 2010 P&G study).[/learn_more]
