Pampers knows that big dreams start with a good night’s sleep, which is why they’ve created products designed to help little ones sleep comfortably by offering overnight protection. In celebration of big dreams and the upcoming 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, Pampers is partnering with swimmer Dana Vollmer for her first Olympic Games since giving birth to her son, Arlen.
Love and encouragement from her family are what led Dana back to the pool. Her journey to Rio is one that she will share with them, and her goal of winning gold at this year’s Olympic Games is not just her dream, it's her entire family's. Dana was committed to getting back into swimming after becoming a mom so that her son could grow up recognizing the importance of hard work and be inspired from a young age. Dana wants Arlen to grow up seeing his mom achieving her dreams as a competitive swimmer, and hopefully, ignite his own passions for success. Here's more from the Glamamom:
How have you started training differently since becoming a mom?
Motherhood helped fuel my desire to get back in the pool on a competitive level and my sense of determination has grown even greater since having Arlen. Being a mom definitely broadens your perspective on what’s important and what matters in life – and it has also helped me learn how to balance the needs of my beautiful baby and family, with my own personal needs and those of my career.
What does being a strong mom mean to you?
Being a strong mom means doing everything you’re capable of doing to create the best life for your child. For me, I want to show how dedication, hard work, and perseverance can help my son accomplish any dream that he sets his sights on.
Is being a mom what you thought it would be like?
Being a mom is both challenging and rewarding in ways far beyond what I could ever have imagined. What works for me is to call on my inner strength and to make sure I never lose sight of who I am as a person – that’s how I can ensure I’m being the best mom I can be for Arlen.
How did you overcome the effects of sleep deprivation when Arlen was an infant?
Ah, yes, that is probably one of the hardest parts about becoming a parent – the sheer lack of sleep. There’s no real way to avoid it but I do think I was lucky that Arlen became such a great sleeper. With great overnight protection, Pampers diapers have always helped him get a sound night of sleep, which in my house, helps everyone achieve their dreams.
