Just in case you didn’t know, this past week has been Nurse Appreciation Week. We have so many friends and family members in our lives that are nurses and we are so thankful for them. What a difference they make for so many people every single day.
I was recently part of a special mission, thanks to Pampers, in order to surprise an entire night shift of nurses at our local NICU. I can tell you that those nurses are super hard workers. I could never do what they do and I am so amazed with how much professionalism they have and how the handle every situation up on that 6th floor. I have a contact that works as a nurse at the NICU. She told me a few of the things that nurses would really appreciate. So, I filled a giant bag full of cups, snacks, chapsticks, lip glosses and Starbucks gift cards. After I delivered the huge basket full of goodies I received a sweet message from the nurse the next day. She told me that the night I dropped off the gifts was a particularly hard night for them. The NICU had 55 babies and she said it was a much needed pick-me-up for everyone. I am just thrilled that I was able to give a little bit of a bright spot to those who do so much for others every single day.
Just like we trust the gentleness of the nurses who helped us through all of those scary and sweet moments, the nurses and hospitals trust the gentleness of Pampers Swaddlers on all of those precious newborn babies. I’ll never forget that tiny little Pampers diaper being wrapped around a tiny little waist and skinny little legs. What precious and sweet memories.
PAMPERS THANK YOU NURSES
Pampers partnered with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses in order to put on the first annual Thank You Nurses campaign. Nurses were nominated in three different award categories: Neonatal, Labor and Delivery and Postpartum. Anne Gallagher, a L&D nurse for 38 years, was the grand prize winner!
