How to Host A Great Diaper Party ~ #PampersBestFit


It's been a while since I've needed to buy diapers for a baby. After all my baby is now five years of age. However, a friend of my husband is expecting a new baby, and together we've decided to host a diaper party in his honor and for the guys.


For those that have no idea what a diaper party, or diaper shower is, it's a baby shower just for the father of the baby and his friends. So it's a party just for the guys! It's also a great way for the dad and his friends to get together and have fun and not feel left out. A diaper shower is also a great way to stock up on diapers. If there's one thing I learned while my own kids were babies, is that you can never have enough diapers. Together with Pampers, I want to share a few tips on how to host a great diaper party.


Choose a theme
Before you send out invitations, decide on your theme. Whether it's football or basketball season, choose a theme and go with it. That will help when it comes time to decorate. Since it's currently football season, we went with our home team and their signature orange and blue colors. However, you can tell your guests to wear their favorite team jersey. It will sure be fun conversations as the guys will have much to talk about. Let the rivalry begin!

Invitations
Try and send out your invitations at least six weeks in advance and be sure to have a number that your guest can RSVP to, with at least a week's notice. This gives your guests ample time to get ready, and in turn gives you lots of time to prepare for the big day.

Decor
Now that you've chosen a theme, it's easy to plan your decorations. Stick with to your theme as closely as possible. You can look for your decorations at your local big box store or get adventurous and make some on your own.

Food
This diaper party is all about the guys. Have your drinks, chips and dips on hand. You should also have some real food. While you can have meals catered, you can also freeze prepared meals beforehand. One essential tip is to ask guests about food allergies


Entertainment
Whether you're watching the game on your television or playing music in the background, be sure there is entertainment. After all what is a party without a bit of music? Mix up the music so you're not listening to just one genre. And be sure to mingle with your guests and take lots of photos.

Games
This is a guys' party, so keep it fun. You can do the diaper change game. Have a doll with diapers and see who can change the diaper the fastest. The one who changes their doll's diaper the fastest wins a prize. It'll also put their skills to the test. You'll be amazed at how many men can't tell the front from the back of a diaper. For more diaper party inspiration, you can always take a look on Pinterest.

Diapers
Don't forget the diapers. After all, this is a diaper party. I have always suggested that when going to either a baby shower or a diaper party, that you always bring diapers in bigger sizes. Babies don't stay babies forever and you'll be surprised at how quickly that newborn grows out of a newborn and size 1 diaper. My babies never even wore newborn diapers and started at size 1 immediately. Before you know it, your baby will be crawling and walking around, and you'll be toddler proofing your home.


As you know if you've been reading my blog for any period of time, I have always been a fan of Pampers. It's the one diaper that I trust with my kids, and it's the only diaper you will receive from me at your baby shower or diaper party. They have never let me down, and it's the first diaper that my children wore in the hospital.

I am also a big fan of Pampers Cruisers. Once my daughter was old enough to start crawling around, it's the one diaper that she wore. Pamper Cruisers don't sag like ordinary diapers, so it allowed her to move around freely. They also protect better from leaks and have Extra Absorb Channels for 12hr dryness and less sagging. Pampers Cruisers offer Pampers' best fit and dryness for babies on the move hands down! Or in this case touch down!


Now is the perfect time to host a diaper party, because from now to October 31st, when you shop at Sam's Club or samsclub.com, you get an instant savings of $8 AND free shipping or Club Pickup (where available) when you buy 2 packages of Pampers diapers or wipes. The savings are automatically calculated when you check out at the register in-club, with the Scan & Go App or on samsclub.com. This is also the perfect time to stock up on diapers for those who need it.


The Sam's Club Scan & Go App makes it easy to shop. You can skip the checkout line and save time by downloading the app to your mobile device and scanning your items with your phone as you shop in the club. Check out with the app, your receipt will appear on your phone, and you're on your way! Download the app for Apple or Android. You can also visit the Pampers Cruisers product page or use the Sam’s Club App and have your Cruisers delivered straight to your door for, OR have them waiting on you when you arrive at the club with Club Pickup.

  1. Long time here, as well but love your advice to pay it forward and throw a diaper themed party for those who may be expecting in the near future. Will have to keep in mind if any of our friends are expecting in the future now :)

  2. I have hosted several baby showers over the years and diapers are always a big part of it. Of course Pampers are the best.

  3. What a fun idea! Diaper parties are always a great way for new parents to load up on Diapers. It is great that dad is not forgotten here, because we all know baby showers are all about mom lol.

  4. I LOVE this! Diapers are so incredibly expensive, if nothing else because of the sheer amount of them you'll go through. A diaper party is genius!

  5. A diaper party is a perfect way to help a mom who has been through the baby thing before! We had a "sprinkle" for my second baby and found that diapers and wipes were the best things people could gift us.

  6. This is a great way to get the men involved in this baby from the start. I guess it is a man's party and hopefully he gets the hint that he should take charge of diaper changing, lol.

    1. Hahaha no Terri, I'm not telling you anything. There will be no more babies in our household. My baby is 5 and she's going to be the last one. We're done with babies. Now we just await our kids having children so we can have grand babies in the years to come.
