P&G Everyday Effect Hamper Giveaway

When your a new mum its an incredibly overwhelming time when things are changing rapidly and your adjusting to your new role. You may also be getting over a traumatic birth, like I did with my first, or recovering physically from the birth and complications. At that time little things can make a big difference. When I had my children it was the simple things like my Mum keeping an eye on the baby so I could have a shower. Or holding them so I could eat a meal hot. Almost 60% of mums said what they missed most in the weeks after their baby was born was a lie in, whilst having a friend or partner look after their baby to give them a couple of hours of ‘me time’ was the small thing that would make the most difference. P&G think by doing ordinary things it can make a difference to everyone involved in a new baby. P&G calls the impact of these seemingly ordinary moments the “Everyday Effect”. So, to try and make a little difference in your day and celebrate those precious moments of peace P&G have sent me a lovely little hamper and have given me one for you guys too! It contains:

  • 5 Minutes’ Peace by Jill Murphy
  • Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
  • Febreze Candle
  • Max Factor Mascara
  • Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner

  1. Definaitely my partner! He surprised me at how good he was with our daughter even though he’d never held a baby before and was so worried! He’s a brilliant dad now :)

  2. My husband, he was amazing, he calmed me when I got anxious and when my daughter wouldn’t sleep he took her out to give me some much needed sleep!

  3. My sister, It was difficult as we lost our parents before i gave birth , wish they had been there to see baby, Got through it and my sister is my rock , thanks for the chance to win this x

  4. My best friend was there when ever i needed her even if in early hours of morning asking questions or needing to chat x

  5. My husband was amazing when our first baby was born. He helped with night feeds even though he was working. He would rush home from work every day to get in and have some quality time with our gorgeous girl. He is a big built man and I just remember him trying to dress our tiny premature girl in a wee pair of tights lol. :-)

  6. my mother in law she would always at the end of the phone and often called in just to sit with the baby for a while so i could have a bath or shower

  7. Family taking her out for walks to let me keep on top of the housework and ironing, its so hard when you have a new baby to run around after all day. Lovely prize package :-)

  8. Nobody really, with my first baby I didnt get much help but with the second one I already knew it all so I didnt need any!

  9. My sister brought me a massive tin of homemade biscuits (7 different types) when I was in hospital – much much better than hospital food!

  10. My mum, she was present but not intrusive, she helped with the domestic stuff freeing me to be with my baby. My first child hardly slept and she often took over for an hour or two in the night so that I could at least get an hours sleep every day.

  11. My other half, he was great and even went supermarket shopping which was funny as he came back with all the wrong things, but he did do a lot to help me

  12. friends and family – one friend turned up in her lunch hour with 2 massive lasagnes, 1 meat and 1 vegi, it kept us going for days!

  13. My partner. I had an emergency c-section and was in loads of pain for the first week, I could hardly do anything!! He was amazing.

    Then my mum helped with questions I had as well as there to support me :)

  14. My brilliant Mum came over and stayed the night when my Daughter was about a month old so at least I could have one decent night’s sleep. I am eternally grateful to her.

  15. My sister went above and beyond the call of duty – she was always there when I needed her and she gave me some much needed advice and emotional support.

  16. My whole family, daughter for being so good while I was in hospital for a week, partner for keeping everything together, house, school runs, bringing food in for me and my mum for being there for me.

  17. A friend’s mum, Penny – my mum had died a few months before my son was born, and I was only 18. Without the help of Penny I have no idea how I would have coped.

  18. Nobody, it was hell. Which is why 2 years later I was divorced and never had another child! Now I’m living happily ever after with someone nice ;-)

  19. Definitely my partner. He was absolutely fantastic helping out and letting me have some baby and me time when I needed some peace to bond. Also he was a dab hand at nappy changing!

  20. During the first few days of both my children being born I would not have coped without my mum. She was there constantly. Day 4/5 of my first child, at 5 in the morning she was driving round the town trying to find an open shop selling baby milk as I just could not take the pain any longer!!!

  21. Everything always felt like a rushed blur, but I would say that my mother was the biggest influence on keeping me sane during my 1001 ways a baby could get hurt, ill or just experience sadness… It was tough, but ultimately she gave me the confidence to relax my mind and just ‘be’

  22. my partner, but also my wonderful health visitor. gave brilliant support and encouraged me to get out and about to post natal group where i met a wonderful bunch of new mums just like me.

  23. I am still in the early days, my daughter is 10 weeks old. My partner has been brilliant though, would have struggled without him!

  24. My best friend Nicola was a massive help to me when my daughter was born.. we lost touch ages before i was pregnant and came back into my life after the birth.. she was an amazing support and such a good friend.

  25. My net door neighbour, Liz. Although she was battling cancer herlsef at the time she used to have my little girl who was 3 at the time for an hour or so a day while I looked after baby

  26. my parents they would remind me to eat and function my eldest is disabled and needed heart surgery first 6 weeks in hospital , i looked like a zombie

  27. My amazing friend, Denise – she lived just around the corner and had her own baby of eight months. However, she always turned up just as I was at the end of my tether to help out, support me and bring me a home-cooked dinner. A true diamond of a friend. x

  28. Having my husband round made the biggest difference following the birth of my son. I had pre-eclampsia and spent a long time in hospital before my son was born. Just being back at home, safe and well with my husband was a huge accomplishment and one I’ll certainly never forget.

  29. With my first child, we had moved to another area to be closer to work.
    So, I was without the support of friends and family.
    A lady who lived a few doors Way, befriended me, and was an invaluable support system to me.
    She couldn’t have children of her own, but had fostered and adopted lots of children over the years.
    That street was a last minute choice, as our first choice had fallen through.
    I think someone somewhere had a hand in guiding me to that street, because I couldn’t have coped without this woman’s help and kindness.

  30. all of the doctors and nurses at the royal bolton hospital as my son was born 3 months early and was in intensive care for 5 weeks. i owe them everything x

  31. My partner – he got up every night with me, he changed nappies, done all of the housework and anything else he could do to help

  32. one of my neighbours kept me sane and sensible when my eldest was born prematurely. She was always there with a cuppa and an ear and just to be ready on the rare occasion my daughter slept in the first 6 weeks to make sure no one disturbed us

  33. my husband made the world of difference, he was so helpful, I suffer with MS so am weak and tired a lot, he took on everything he could, obviously I didn’t want him doing everything but he made sure that if help was needed he was there, i’m sure he’d have been the same if I wasn’t ill though to be fair to him

  34. They do get bad press, on occasions, but it was my husband who made a big difference when our baby was born. Unfortunately he did not get paternity leave immediately after the birth but that didn’t stop him getting up for the baby in the night and bringing him to me to feed and settling him back down, cooking, shopping. He was amazing and I don’t know how I would have managed without him.

  35. My mother, she helped full time for the first two weeks, cleaning, preparing food for us, bottles for baby and she realised when I had an infection and made sure I had medical help – a lifesaver!

  36. I’m about to have my first baby due on 6th, and my husband will be amazing and will help me with everything (I HOPE!!), and my mum is planning to help out a lot too when my husband has to go back to work!

    On a side note why only 2 weeks paternity? Why cant we be more like Scandinavian countries?! :(

  37. Being in hospital for a week, the midwives worked hard trying to get me in tune with breast feeding my new baby. My husband was great too.

  38. My husband. He was fantastic making sure I had time to rest no being pushy over breast feeding and making sure I was made to feel special not just the baby. He Is one in a million.

  39. Some old lady in a supermarket…..who stopped me and said very kindly “listen to all the advice that everyone will give you about raising your children, especially the mother-in-law”. Then use the bits of advice that you want, but in the middle of the night you’ll try most bits of advice when it comes to colic, or teething etc. ” Then she disappearred. I think of her as my fairy godmother :)

  40. Sounds weird but in a roundabout way my husband’s boss. Our daughter was diagnosed with a range of issues shortly after birth and he was able to get my husband extra leave to deal with everything that was thrown at us. He was off work until she was a couple of months old and would have been so much harder without him.

  41. One of the midwives was an absolute superstar when my twins arrived, she was a complete wealth of useful information (unlike most of the other staff, who were opinionated and pretty useless!)

  42. My Mum, I didnt have a clue what I was doing and she was totally non judgemental and did everything she could to help me

  43. My husband, I suffered with postnatal depression and a awkward baby, although at the time we couldn’t see any of that, the depression was not diagnosed and we never knew we had an awkward baby (having another showed us the difference), But hubby really stood up, he would do his full time job and then come home and cook tea and then I would go to bed for some rest. I dont know how we got through those times.

  44. my husband. he really is a natural daddy and will always stay up with the kiddies at night if they wont settle to give me a rest. we’re expecting our third baby together x

  45. My mum. I don’t know how I would have managed without her and just wish she was here now to see what a fine young man my son has turned into.

  46. My friends who would babysit for me so I could have some time to myself. As a simgle parent this was crucial to both mine and babys well being.

  47. The other half was amazing, he helped out alot and made it alot easier for me, my mum aswell was amazing, she didnt interfere and was there when I needed her

  48. My nan, i was on my own and didnt find out until my daughter was 3 that i was suffering PND. When others told me i just need to cheer up and stop feeling sorry for myself she stepped up and supported me. She didnt beat around the bush with her words and tbh at times it grated on me her being around but i dont think i could have got through it without her. When my 2nd daughter come along she did the same as well. My girls are 11 and 7 and to this day i go to her above anyone else if i need advice or a rant xx

  49. My mum – she came and stayed with me for the first 2 weeks after my son was born. She was amazing, giving advice and help whenever i needed it.

  50. my partner was great he gave me all the support i needed, my family werent as supportive, also my who live nearly 200 miles away always on phone if i needed her x

  51. My husband, I really could never have got through those days without him. We have a reflux baby which made it all the more harder. I will always be grateful for the amazing support I received, and continue to to this day.

  52. My husband who would give me a break when he was home, and was very hands-on with both our littluns, But also my son when I had my youngest as he would keep her amused if I needed to get something done, and littlun doted on him.
