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.


  1. yes, I do love that commercial. It shows all the ways that babies come into our lives, even 6 years late! :)

  2. I just stumbled on to your blog. We are suffering miscarriage # 4. But it is our 3rd in a row. We have two healthy children 3 and almost 2. Apparently I'm not suppose to be sad because I have 2 children. I'm sorry for your losses. I have decided to blog since nobody seems to want me to talk about it in real life. (Besides my husband). I wanted to say hi.

  3. Thanks for sharing that commercial, I had never seen it before. It's beautiful.
