For every Pampers® Swaddlers diaper pack sold at Walmart in November and December, Pampers® Canada will donate to the CPBF and Préma-Québec.

TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2022 /CNW/ - Approximately 30,000 babies are born prematurely every year in Canada, spending their first weeks or months in the NICU. The uncertainty, exhaustion, health concerns, and additional care required can take a toll on families, even during the transition from hospital to home.

Some of that additional care includes protecting a premature baby's skin. Preterm babies' skin can be up to two times thinner than full-term babies, making it extra sensitive to touch and irritants1.

That's why selecting the right diaper is so important for premature babies with heightened sensitivity to skin irritation. A few years ago, as the #1 Canadian Pediatrician Recommended Brand, Pampers partnered with NICU nurses to develop a special diaper designed for babies weighing as little as one pound, the first major diaper brand to do so.

Now, in recognition of World Prematurity Day and November's Prematurity Awareness Month, Pampers® Canada is partnering with the Canadian Premature Babies Foundation (CPBF) and Préma-Québec to support families with premature babies.

"We know that having a premature baby can be overwhelming and stressful for many Canadian families. That's why Pampers is partnering with Walmart Canada to bring attention to the impact of prematurity on babies and their families and provide financial assistance to two wonderful charitable organizations that are working to educate, support and advocate for premature babies and their families," said Irena Kahn, Brand Director, P&G.

To help babies and their families when they need it the most, Pampers® Canada is participating in these initiatives:

  • In partnership with Walmart Canada*, Pampers® Canada will donate 8 cents to the CPBF and Préma-Québec for every Pampers® Swaddlers diaper pack sold at Walmart from Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, 2022.
  • This funding will go towards support programs for families of premature babies, including mental health and wellness resources.

"The experience of premature birth can be traumatizing, scary and filled with unknowns, but Canadian families don't have to go through it alone. The CPBF is dedicated to helping them through peer support programs, resources, and research leading to improved outcomes and experiences for babies and families. Through these generous donations from Pampers® Canada, we will be able to continue this support for Canadian families," said Fabiana Bacchini, Executive Director, Canadian Premature Babies Foundation.

Those who would like to donate to the CPBF and Préma-Québec through this initiative, can purchase Pampers® Swaddlers diaper packs in store at any Walmart location in Canada.
