I cried happy tears when I saw this video on Facebook last month. It was created by Baby Dove to celebrate #RealMoms and I adore how they really went there, embracing a broad spectrum of motherhood.
This post is sponsored by Baby Dove, which is so rad because I really love and value their message.
(You gotta watch their first Real Beauty Production all about Cathleen, you guys. You’ll get chills and hurt your face from smiling. And probably cry.)
It makes sense that they want to celebrate real MOMS with the Baby Dove brand. As they say, “There are no perfect moms, only real ones.”
Dove has been a sponsor of this conference I’ve been going to – Mom 2.0– for as long as I’ve been attending. It’s a blogging and influencer conference, and it’s literally changed my life. This huge leap we’re making– selling our house, my husband leaving his job, blogging from the road in an RV and sharing that on HappyLoudLife.com starting later this year- I got the confidence (and learned the skills needed) to do that, largely, because of the community I’ve found through @Mom2Summit.
I already have a huge soft spot for Dove because they are walking the walk. They celebrate real women in their ads and marketing, yes, but then they show up year after year and support real women, like me, at Mom 2.0. I mentioned Dove and their Mom 2.0 sponsorship in my last Facebook Live Playgroup episode while talking about blogging and how to make money doing so. Check it out if you missed it. They are a brand that gets it, and I respect the heck out of them for it.
It doesn’t hurt that every year they have a #RealBeauty Suite set up at the conference where we can get our hair styled while sipping champagne, which is such a rare treat for many of us.
Now, with the launch of Baby Dove, I am super excited to have the perfect excuse to work with them here on Baby Rabies. I feel like their #RealMoms campaign aligns beautifully with what I want this space to evolve into- an inclusive and diverse platform for, well, real moms… and dads… or whatever you want to call yourself, you caretaker and booger wiper of littles, you.
So yeah, I’m here to tell you that their new Baby Dove line is as gentle on baby’s skin as water…
And it seems to be flying off the shelf at our Target for good reason. It smells amazing and is the same great quality that’s made Dove a household name for generations.
But I’m also here to tell you that Baby Dove is a brand that supports me, and supports me building this community for you- all of you. And that’s, like, wow, you guys. How awesome that they see all of YOU and they want to be a part of this? I’ll tell you, I think it’s a huge honor.
There are no perfect moms, only real moms. Can I get an amen?
