Generation Huggies

Some people want to label me as a member of Generation X. And, now, someone wants to label me as a member of Generation Huggies.


Well, Huggies were first introduced to parents 30 years ago, about the time I was born. I have no idea if my mom used Huggies on my sweet bottom, but I know that they are the preferred diaper for my daughter's tiny bottom. Several months ago, I discovered that they stayed with her better when she was moving around and more importantly, could hold all of her nighttime wetness without leaking onto her pajamas or bed sheet.

To celebrate 30 years of Huggies baby-love, they have created Generation Huggies, a website, contest, and sweepstakes all in one!

The contest is a way for moms to reflect on what motherhood has meant to them. I viewed several of the videos already submitted and loved to see mom, just like me, talking about how motherhood had changed them. It is clear that Huggies will be choosing real moms for their national ad campaign.

If you'd like to be a part of that campaign, there are two ways for moms to create a video reflecting on that theme.
  1. Your homemade videos can be uploaded to
  2. Alternatively, moms can create a video on-site when they visit a local Generation Huggies event. (I can't find a location listing just yet.)
As for the submission rules - here they are:
  • Videos should be no longer than 60 seconds in length and no larger than 5MB.
  • The deadline for submitting a video is November 20, 2008.
  • Everyone can participate by giving a hug, or vote, to their favorite video through November 30, 2008.
  • Judging ends November 30, 2008.
The sweepstakes is open to everyone, every day. It doesn't take hardly any effort at all to enter to win $30,000! The grand prize winner will receive $30,000 and will be chosen in December 2008.

If you decide to submit a video, let me know. Otherwise, good luck in the $30,000 prize drawing.What mom doesn't need an extra 30 grand?
