CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With both the 4th of July and the London 2012 Olympic Games just around the corner, Americans have so many reasons to show off their red, white and blue this summer and now Pampers, the world-renowned diaper brand, is ensuring that even the littlest of Americans can partake in this celebratory spirit by providing them with the most patriotic and playful fare of the season – Limited Edition “USA” diapers! As families across the country get ready to celebrate America’s birthday, and cheer on Team USA in London, the Pampers Limited Edition “USA” diapers are the perfect summer style accessory that enables all tiny tots to put their patriotic pride on full display.

Whether families participate in parades, barbecue or beach celebrations, babies everywhere will be donning red, white and blue to amp up patriotic pride as well as to create memorable photo opportunities. Kate Marsh Lord, founder of the popular blog The Shopping Mama (www.theshoppingmama.com), offers considerations for outfitting little ones from top to bottom stylishly and easily:

  • Hats - Patriotic hats offer sun protection with style and can be used all summer long. Caps, sun hats and fedoras are all great choices.
  • Shirts and Tops – So many retailers offer cute and affordable patriotic tees this time of year. If you buy unisex you can hand it down from child-to-child over the years.
  • Shades – Protect baby’s eyes with festive sunglasses.
  • Their Ride – Decorate your baby’s stroller or wagon with patriotic decorations. Older children will enjoy getting in on the decorating too!
  • Zinc – Check with your child’s pediatrician, but colorful zinc can be a fun way for your child to show his red, white and blue!
  • Pampers Limited Edition ‘USA’ Diapers – Perfect for displaying patriotic pride on the 4th of July and created in celebration of Pampers’ partnership with the London 2012 Olympic Games, the diapers are available in Cruisers sizes 3 through 5 at select stores nationwide.

“Our family loves celebrating America’s birthday and we enjoy putting together creative and festive ensembles every year that show off our family’s patriotic pride,” says Marsh Lord, a mother of three, including a newborn. “Pampers Limited Edition “USA” diapers are practical yet playful, making them the perfect accessory for any little sparkler!”

“We are delighted that babies from coast to coast can take part in all of this summer’s patriotic celebrations by sporting the Pampers Limited Edition ‘USA’ diapers,” said John Brase, Marketing Director, Baby Care North America at Procter & Gamble (P&G). “From the 4th of July holiday, to next month’s London 2012 Olympic Games, there are so many reasons to celebrate and we’re proud to offer little ones the play gear that allows them to partake in the festivities.”
