Filed Under 'Commercials That Make Me Cry'

I've already recapped some top offenders-- books, movies, TV shows that totally miss the mark portraying infertility and miscarriage. Imagine my surprise the other day when I saw this Pampers commercial. It's not brand new, but it was new to me.

Instead of showing beautiful, rich, perfect young couples with perfect babies, the commercial actually acknowledges the very common problems many of us suffer. The story line actually acknowledges IVF... and not as some crazy wild procedure that only Octomoms and Kate Plus 8s undergo.

The line that gets me every time, "Whether she's 3 months early.... or 10 years late."

Pampers... I probably won't buy your diapers.... [who am I kidding, I'm not even preggo] .... but I sure do love your commercial.
