Pampers Commercial

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 

I saw this commercial today and wow, I totally cried. 

post #2 of 44

Love this.  I used cloth, but I still like the message :)

I agree - great message!

 

It actually made me feel a little guilty for disliking Pampers!  We used their swaddlers when DS was newborn , which I liked, but I couldn't stand the smell of their larger dipes.  We use cloth & generic sposies now.  But, yes, great commercial!

awww yup it made me cry too.

 

however the cynic in me sees this as a great marketing ploy. feeding on emotional appeal.

Aw, why did I go and watch that at work?  Totally cried.  (And I'm 7 months preggers.)

My fav part was the water birth in the living room with the blow up pool.  :D

I had to go to youtube to watch it. That was so sweet!  I love the little baby smile at the end. Makes me want to wake my baby up who is sleeping right next to me so I can love on him, lol

awww this made me tear up!  i love that they had a birthing pool and showed a bfing mama. :)

 

it won't cause me to buy the product but its a sweet commercial.

Wow that is really a sweet commercial.  I can't stand pampers though, they stink!  I am not brand loyal, I buy what's on sale if I buy disposables, but I always avoid pampers because of that smell.

I like the baby near the end who stretched and rubbed his face on mom. I love that scrunchy look.

That commercial makes me ball. In fact, right now, just thinking about it, I'm tearing up. Pregnant women should not watch tv.

Its such a sweet ad. Kudos for them featuring water birth and breastfeeding too.

*sniff sniff* ~tears here too. Beautiful ad.

 

...and I, too, cannot help but be a little skeptical of it, not just because of the product it's for, but the emotional manipulation.

Mine too!   

 

But I agree with pp, I can't stand the smell of Pampers.

post #17 of 44

I had no idea that pampers smelled.  I already have some that someone gave me...but thanks for the heads up.  Maybe I'll have to go sniff them...  (I am hoping to cloth diaper but wanted some disposibles for the first week or two.)

I watched it. It was awesome!

post #19 of 44

Aww. That was sweet.

 

Pampers stink when they're filled with pee but they fit my one son better than Huggies so we used them when we weren't cloth diapering.

Yep, same here. Huggies leaked with both my kids, so we use Pampers. I have friends who use Huggies because Pampers leak with their kids, though -- I guess it just depends on how your kids are shaped or something.

 

But yeah, Pampers have a distinctive odor. I don't find it offensive in and of itself (or at least I didn't used to), but after years of using the diapers, I associate even a new, clean Pampers smell with pee and poop. Kind of like how the scented dog poop bags smell gross to me now because I so strongly associate that smell with poop. 

 

Anyway, the video is really sweet and I just love the message.
