Pampers Ad (H2o Birth!)

I know most homebirthy folks cloth dipe, but kudos to Pampers for yanking our emotional chains. Say what you will; I love the ad!

I'm with you on loving the ad! Call me a bit Pollyanna, but I think that advertisements like this really do help to normalize (in this case) water birth. It's not the way I would choose to normalize it in my "ideal" world, of course. But I think that it's a culturally relevant and important ad!

Well, that, and it's terribly sweet too. :-)

It was this one that got me, with the surrogacy line:

Either way, it's beautiful advertising and I wish it were shown in the US!

Anterior placenta?

And wow, that one makes me smile...those sweet little babies I can almost smell...

Oh, the baby squish.

Oh, the baby at the end is making me squee. This ad has me actually looking forward to changing little diapers! 14 weeks done, 30 to go the way I birth. (LOL)

The little babies in the NICU make my heart melt because that's what my little girl looked like.

Gets me, too, even though it makes me gag to hear them call a disposable diaper soft. :)
