Tell Us What Luvs’ Next Commercial Should Be — and Win Six Months’ Worth of Diapers

Just a reminder that tomorrow is the last day to enter! Contest will close at 5PM PT.

The Laughing Stork has partnered with Luvs to get the word out about their hilarious (like, seriously hilarious) campaign highlighting the differences between being a first-time mom and a second-time mom — basically, how we experienced moms relax with subsequent children.  For example:

So, yeah, we chill out a bit.

As part of this campaign, five other bloggers and I pounded the pavement to show the videos to other parents.  (I may or may not have also shown the campaign to our cat, Larry, to glean his reaction as the third child.)  The nonstop laughter — and Larry’s sad puss (pun intended) — speaks for itself:

And now we would like to hear what YOU think Luvs’ next first kid/second kid commercial should be! To enter the contest, just check out Luvs’ videos and leave your idea in the comments section.  The winner will get SIX MONTHS’ worth of free diapers in coupons.  And if you don’t have any need for the diapers, yourself, then I will personally drive and donate them in your name to the LA Diaper Drive, which provides diapers to local families that cannot otherwise afford them.

Got lots o’ ideas?   Well, then, you can enter this contest five more times on the following blogs (one entry per person per blog):  Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva, Snarky Mommy, Mama Bird Diaries, Robin’s Chicks and Ann’s Rants.

We will pick the winners on February 28, 2013.  Good luck, y’all!

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

  • I think it would be funny to have a commercial where it takes the mom a million hours to figure out the baby carrier & settin up the pack n play, etc. the first time…..and she can do it all with her eyes closedand hands full of babies the second time around!!

  • Hey, can dads enter this too?

    1st kid-If sleeping forever, check on them constantly to make sure still breathing.

    2nd kid-If sleeping forever, celebrate.

  • Nap time:

    1st kid- in the crib, white noise machine on, everything silent in the house, doorbell disconnected.

    2nd kid- in the stroller at 1st kid’s soccer game

  • Ooooo now this is intriguing and exciting (to my wallet and my sanity!) I am expecting twins and would appreciate beyond words the diapers. First time mom here, I am sure I’ll use what? – 30-40 diapers a day!?!?

    My idea would be for a video of changing diapers on the go – especially with more than 1 kid in tow – how to strap one into a restraining device (car seat, stroller, shopping cart) and keep close by while wrangling the one who needs a changing – all the while not cursing or getting poop on yourself because after all you’re wearing your new old navy scarf and who wants to have to wash a scarf? They are like jeans – they never get dirty!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  • It’s crazy what we did as First-time Moms compared to now! I know it took me hours just to get out of the house back in those days. Yikes! And the commercials are really funny! Nice job, Luv’s!!

    My idea would be:
    First Kid: rushing to the emergency room for a scratch on his arm.
    Second kid: band-aid.

  • First Kid: pacifier falls on floor, put glove on, pick up gingerly, place in sanitizing machine before giving back

    Second kid: pacifier falls on floor, pick up and quickly check for dirt, put back in mouth

    This could all happen while baby is being changed in a bathroom at a restaurant to showcase the Luvs diapers

  • ?1st baby: At the first sign of distress – a whimper, a frown-you pick up the baby. 2nd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing.

  • 1st kid-Hospital bag is a suitcase filled with all sorts of junk you don’t need
    2nd kid-You just grab a few essentials on the way out the door to the hospital while in labor

  • LABOR! We know the signs the second time around, right? Or how about leaving them with a babysitter for the first (second, third, fourth) time? I LUV these ads by the way.

  • My idea would be for a nighttime / sleeping baby. 1st kid= mom/dad with audio and video monitors sitting right outside baby’s room. Second kid = mom/ dad passed out with their door open 🙂

  • First kid – mom spends hours peeling, chopping, cooking and pureeing home made baby food which she spoon feeds the child, carefully wiping off his mouth after each bite.
    Second kid – sits with everyone else eating whatever is for dinner, gnawing on a turkey leg or diving into a tray full of spaghetti.

  • I noticed with my first kid:
    Big first birthday party, fancy decorations, stressed out, homemade big fancy cake, goodie bags for other children guests…

    Second kid:
    His most preferred meal at home and a small homemade six inch round cake..

  • With my first every single piece of washable anything was washed with dreft until she was about 6 months old.

    With my second we just threw her clothes in with ours! She was lucky they were washed at all!

  • love breastfeeding one

    kid 1 – first night away from baby parents paranoid
    kid 2- first night away. enjoy themselves and sleep soun

    kid 1 – dad changes diaper clueless
    kid2- dad changes diaper blind folded

  • Well since I’m pregnant with both my first and second child at the same time, I’m not going to have the “luxury” of deciding how I would do things differently the next time around. Basically, If I mess one up, I mess them both up. But, at least they won’t know the difference!

  • Registry time!
    1st kid – Mom and Dad wander around with the gun, registering for everything in sight including the wipes warmer and 4,000 pacifiers.
    2nd kid – “Honey, we have most of this in a closet somewhere, don’t we?” Scan a few boxes of diapers and leave.
