The Day I Became Dad

We all become dads at different times in our lives… It’s an amazing moment when we see our child for the first time, when we hold the little one, and hear the initial cries. Whatever the path to fatherhood, we find ourselves in those initial moments of utter joy, anticipation and gut-wrenching fear.


What’s it like to be a new dad?

  1. Fear. It’s scary — to think about a new baby, and our fatherly responsibility. As dads, we’re a role model, an example to our kid(s). But, what if we should fail?
  2. Hope. There’s nothing quite like seeing our children — in the initial moments of life. They are so full of promise for the future. So innocent. A hope that he/she will make the world a better place.
  3. Joy. It’s such a small word, but it doesn’t even really capture the feeling when we see our little one(s). It stands for so much more: anticipation and happiness and love.

Deep down, we all want to do what’s best for our children. In the first moments of becoming a father, we begin to feel that anything is possible — that we will move heaven and Earth just to protect our littlest miracle.

For Father’s Day, Pampers celebrates dads — with that incredible feeling that our little ones inspire; unconditional love. In the space of a breath, our children empower and terrify us. We take on new roles, every day, as we travel through this journey of fatherhood. In the eyes of our kids, amazing heroic feats — big and small — are possible.

For snapshots of our father-child relationship, take a look at Pamper’s new #ThanksBaby video. It captures a bit of parenting bliss, with those unforgettable funny-silly-laughing times.

DadAmidst those memorable moments, we also have to fulfill the most basic requirements for our children, and we rely upon those products that have passed the test of time. We all know that Pampers has been around for 50 years, and over the years, they continue to provide the very best in protection and comfort (not only for the first moments of life but also for the ongoing needs of childhood).
