That Moment When You Became a Parent {Pampers Giveaway}

As a Pampers Baby Board Member, a sample was received to facilitate this review.  All opinions remain 100% mine.

After six month of trying to get pregnant with our first child, my husband and I could not have been more thrilled to learn we were expecting a baby in February 2005.  Once the initial excitement began to wear off, anxiety set in.

We were having a baby.  But more importantly, the baby was having us.

Would we know what to do?  What do we feed her?  How do we change a diaper?  What if she gets sick?  Getting answers to one question only brought up more questions.  But when the big day arrived and Lily Catherine entered the world on January 31, 2005, our anxiety disappeared and was replaced with complete unconditional love and a huge sense of protection over our new little miracle.

Lily spent the first two nights in the neonatal ICU and because I was extremely anemic, I had a hard time visiting.  But my husband was a rock.  Not only did he take care of me, but watched over Lily with such compassion, love and concern that there was no doubt in my mind that he had become a Father in every sense of the word.

Pampers recognizes the very important role that dads play in your little miracles’ lives each and every day and is taking time to celebrate Dad for Father’s Day with a very special giveaway right here on Experimental Mommy.  I would love to hear all about those very special moments when you first realized that your partner (and/or YOU) had become a Father.  Enter to win this prize pack below:

  13. I’m expecting my first baby (girl!) this fall. I knew my husband would make a great father when I see him reading his baby book and learning about how to care for a baby. He is also very supportive during my pregnancy. I just know he will make such a great father to our daughter! I can’t wait to see how he is with her!

    Thanks for the opportunity.


  14. When we had our son, I hurt my arm really bad so my husband had to help out a lot the first month and he was amazing. I knew then that he was an amazing father!

  15. Right in the hospital after our son was born. He was so worried about him (even though there was nothing to worry about!) that I knew he was a father for life.

  16. I had an emergency c-section hubby decided to watch the entire process just so he could see his first born he had tears

  17. My husband has learned twice about being a father. 1st time when he became my son’s dad, and it freaked him out for my son to call him dad. And then when he and I gave birth to our daughter. He is still scared.

  18. When our first son was born there was a moment where my husband was laying with our newborn on the hospital bed and both my husband and son were gazing into each others eyes and I could just see in my husband’s eyes that he was changed forever…he was now a Dad. I captured it on film and it is my favorite picture!

  19. My husband and I haven’t been able to have children but my little brother is expecting and I am excited.

  20. My husband was so excited to go with our son to the nursery and hold him up in the window for all the family to see! Those are still some of my favorite pictures from our child’s birthday! You can see the love radiating from the sweet new Daddy!

  21. I realized my husband became a father when he took on the role and responsibility of being a step-parent to my three children. Thanks.

  22. When he first heard the heart beat. It hit him like a ton of bricks and he actually passed out. lol

  23. That special moment when my hubby held our son for the first time, the expression on his face was priceless 🙂

  24. I think it was the first time he held our newborn daughter. He would not leave her side and I knew he’d be there for her for the rest of his life.

  25. The day we found out I was pregnant. We had agreed to wait till I was 12 weeks to announce it to anyone, but pretty much the minute the second line showed up he called his parents so excited to be a daddy

  26. I had an emergency c section and my son was born with a huge contusion on his head from being stuck, my son spent several days in the special care nursery. My husband spend almost every moment in the nursery changing is his diapers and loving him that’s when I knew he was a father 🙂
