CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pampers, the #1 choice of U.S. hospitals, nurses and parents*, has donated $100,000 to the March of Dimes as part of its ongoing commitment to Prematurity Awareness Month. Preterm birth is a national health crisis, and funding will help support roughly 380,000 babies being born prematurely every year in the United States. For more than 40 years, Pampers has proudly partnered with NICU nurses to care for the specific needs of preemies.
“We’re proud to partner with Pampers, who shares in our belief that all babies deserve the best possible start in life,” said March of Dimes president Stacey D. Stewart. “It is thanks to generous donations and support like this from Pampers that March of Dimes is able to help millions of babies and their families. When we come together as a community, we can create solutions that support healthy moms and strong babies not just in November, but all year long.”
Pampers has always been committed to creating diapers that fit the needs of every baby – even the littlest fighters. Since 2002, Pampers has developed numerous innovations for premature babies, including diapers for micro-preemies, and a first-of-its kind flat diaper. From precious newborns to potty training toddlers, diapers are touching babies’ delicate skin nearly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which is why Pampers offers a range of products for babies at every age and stage. New Pampers Swaddlers with Heart Quilts is Swaddlers softest comfort ever and most premium protection. The Heart Quilts liner provides breathability and comfort that is 2x softer** while pulling wetness and mess away from the skin.
“From our smallest diaper to our softest diaper, all babies deserve to feel swaddled in comfort and love,” said Andre Schulten, P&G NA VP Pampers. “We’re proud to continue to support March of Dimes and all their efforts to raise awareness of preterm births.”
