The only one I'm really scared of is that very leaky diapey, the cause of Mason's usual morning gripey. And it makes me sort of nervous when the toot scoots down the chute. And that major smelly down-wards of his belly... I don't like it. Not at all. But packages of Seventh Generation Free & Clear Overnights on the dresser- They're great fun to have around. They tend to turn that gripey into a happy-morning diapey! They're rather nice ...I think.

Milk has been drank, books have been read, Now it is time to go off to bed. Goodnight stars, goodnight moon, It's dream time in my peaceful room. Mommy and Daddy do some chores, Then it's their turn for lots of snores. They really, really like their sleep, It helps them, all day, keep up with me! I sleep much better, when I am dry, The diapers would help, this is why! Overnight diapers, without any bleach, Would help us all, our dreams reach!

A whole night sleep without a peep? It's been over a year since I've had that my dear. With a big boy who wakes or his twin sisters who don't sleep Mama never needs to count sheep!

A full night's sleep? Oh, what a treat! I think maybe I will have one happy baby if she sleeps through the night and doesn't wake up with a fright A dry diaper is the key to a well rested mommy. We'll be happy as can be if there is no leaking pee. Oh, Seventh Generation is it just my imagination that your diaper will stay dry? my, oh my, oh my!

A whole nights sleep, Without a peep? What would I give, If we could live, I a house, As quiet as a mouse. We cry, We scream, We pout, We dream…. Finally. The little one avoids, And makes as much noise, As a train, What a pain! If we could sleep, Without a peep, Until 6 in the morn, I just might toot a horn!

Sleep! Sleep! Oh how I have missed you. My little one thinks much of waking at 2! Where have you gone, my precious dreams. Into the past so it seems. Mommy and daddy try to look bright-eyed and bushy tailed But there is no way around the fact they have failed We wait patiently for you to learn to sleep So that we might go a night without a peep.

Oh the wonderful night this dipe can make for you Don’t you want to try them too? This thirsty garb sucks lots of potty So you can chill with your spouse, the hottie These green diapers lack chemical ickies Give a peaceful mind that they won’t cause sickies Rest easy knowing they’re better for Earth As they wrap the cute tush to which you gave birth!

If my little one would sleep through the night, Until the morning sun is bright Then perhaps I could find the time To write a longer Seuss-like rhyme! But alas it's like a fairy tale to get through a night without one wail!

The time has come to turn off the light As we tuck ourselves in for a wonderful night We've had lots of fun It's been a long day We giggled and ran errands And friends came to play We drank all our milk and shared delicious food Our tummies are full Everyone's in a good mood We put on our jammies our teeth are brushed We snuggle together and the house is hushed We read one last story give kisses galore After some sleep we'll be ready for more We settle in to our comfy bed and finally rest our weary head As the room becomes dark we hear not a peep Our beautiful baby drifts off to sleep She'll dream pleasant dreams and get some great rest She'll stay dry and happy all night She is the best!

A whole night of sleep would be so grand but rest and a wet diaper do not go hand in hand So sleep we must in a soggy state until one baby does retaliate a diaper dry all night long I would sing a happy song! Let's sleep through till day so all parents can say, All night dry is great so baby wakes in a happy state!

The baby girl was asleep and tucked in real tight Her parents were settled in for a long night No sounds were made in quite a long while  So mom and dad woke up with a smile Seventh generation are the best diapers in town For a night with no mess neither yellow or brown!

My wife with heavy sad sounding sighs, And deep dark purple circles, under her eyes,  Said: “Unless someone like you cares an awful lot, Nothing here is gonna get better. It’s not.” Our two toddlers and infant frolicked and played, And left us in silence, stunned and amazed. The amount of energy they expelled was astounding. And the shrieks and loud yelling, left our poor temples pounding. The clock, reading PM, reached those dreaded double digits. And my wife had just told me that she’d reached her limits. Yes, my dearest just gave me a glance. She gave me a very sad, sad backward glance. And off she shuffled alone to our bed. Leaving me to get all three kids diapered and bed. With their bums all snug they slipped into their jammies,  I then tucked the eldest of the family away And the second one followed, and to much astonishment in bed he stayed! The youngest fell asleep as I watched T.V. As he lay on my chest, his breathing in sync with me. So I turned off the tube, in the fast darkening house And followed my wife. And all that was left in the house was one word: SILENCE at long last was the sound in my head.   Then I shuffled right off to our warm cozy bed.

A whole night's sleep without a peep I would spend it counting sheep. I'd sleep so long, I'd dream so much I may not wake in time for lunch!

Not a baby was crying Not even her brothers….. It was so quiet you couldn’t hear a mouse What am I doing this can’t be my house?! I awake from my daydream to find out what’s all the racket My two boys decide to hit ice cream With my new tennis racket I get all the kids cleaned up and sound asleep in their beds After the ice cream fell right on my head I then scrub and I scrub till everything shines I still can’t believe those little devils are mine It’s finally quiet and I head off to bed I can’t wait till tomorrow to see what might fall on my head

In the crib you sleep Hopefully without a peep But on occasion you will keep And go straight back to sleep When you wake up in the morn Reading, playing with the horn I know it's due to just one thing Dry you stay, oh how we sing!

The baby is quiet, and thus so are you, You take a step back and then you go "phew!" You wipe your brow and so does your hubby, And one of you whispers, "my, isn't she lovely!" You stand and stare for a minute or two, But you can't stay--you have things to do. There's the laundry, the kitchen, and the playroom as well, And off to your own bed before midnight bell. The life of a parent is never a bore, When you're done with one thing, there's always more. But when you're tired and weak and at your wit's end, Just go to the crib and watch her again.

My eyes are gettying droopy with yet another poopy! With waking not one, not two times a night, I gather all my might to turn on the light. Thrice the cries wake me "Please change my diapy!" If only there was a solution for the nighttime regrouping Alas, it is near... Seventh Generation is here!

At 3a.m., a wimper, a shout! What is all the noise about? Off I go on a familiar route. Is that potty in the bed? Is that potty on your head? The potty should be in the diaper instead! My eyes are feeling awfully buggy For your Huggies are feeling ever so muggy. Momma is not a happy camper For your Pampers have never ever been damper. I will not take it anymore! These diapers must go out the door! Off I march to the grocery store To find a more absorbent core! There is no potty in the bed. There is no potty on your head. The potty’s in the diaper instead! Someone finally got it right! At 3 a.m. all are tucked in tight! Thank you for this peaceful night. J

Oh dear, oh me, oh what a fright Our laundry room this morning is quite the sight One load, two loads, three now more The sheets are strewn across the floor Up the stairs things do not get much better Laundry baskets full of pjs that couldn't be wetter Leaking, wet diapers are filling up that bin Here comes mother not wearing a grin Is there no diaper around today That can keep our wet at bay Is there no way to greet the morning sun while still dry A chance to kiss the houses sleep broken nights goodbye We have heard of a place far far away Diapers that work the entire night they say Tired worked out mothers are the inspiration A wonder from a company known as seventh generation If only if only it was a place we could go We would stock up so our diapers did not hang so low And have you not heard what rumors are saying Chemical free and safe so our cheeks are not chaffing Oh we must tell mother we shall we need to She would not say no to a whole nights sleep for you No more hassel with putting a diaper on without a light This is finally an idea she will think is right We can stop with the trying those revamped and restamped For we know that they are just going to leave us damp Out with the cloth, out with the hyped up and out with the failed trials Finally onto something right that will give our mom smiles

All day long we try to swaddle in cloth, But at night alas, Baby's wet to his socks, An overnight diaper, A solution at last, So Mother and Father can sleep till eight past, Peace came at such a low low price, To our pockets and our forests, No more rolling the dice!

Go to sleep baby girl, go to sleep! go to sleep! Don't make a sound baby girl not a peep! Not a peep! Mommy's so tired she's about to weep! Please baby girl, go to sleep, go to sleep. Go to sleep baby girl, Get some rest, it's the best! Sleep baby girl, like a bird in a nest Tomorrow's a new day, I do say you can play, But for now could you please hit the hay? You've had kisses and hug, You sweet cuddlebug, Now sleep sweet and sleep tight Like a bug in a rug. Mommy might clean, she might sew, she might sweep, If her sweet precious girl would just go to sleep.

For Mommy there is no sleep; our toddler does weep and weep, when in the middle of the night, he wakes up with a fright. Up the stairs and turn on the light, Mommy sees a wet toddler and a wet bed. Down the stairs we are lead, "I went TEETEE!" is all he said. After changing his diaper again, he's falling asleep (AMEN!) Since his bed is not clean, and in my sheets he is between, There he stays to sleep the night, and finally everything is alright.

A night of sleep for this mama? I'd never ask for anything more. I'd scrub the floors I'd dust and mop I'd even eat at IHOP.

What a wonderful night when we hear not a sound A sleeping babe is all we want round A clean dry diaper is the key to sleeptime bliss When mom and dad want a wink not to miss So send through those diapers, I'll try anything I can To get a good night's sleep again!

Sleepy girl, sleepy girl, it's time for bed, It's time to lay down your sweet little head. Teeth are brushed, they are shiny white, And now it is time to say good night. Clean diaper is on, and Jammies zipped up, Then you ask me to fill your water cup. You give me a sad look, Then I say, "one more book..." Prayers are said and we hug, Oh how I love you, my ladybug. Sleepy girl, sleepy girl, you get some sleep, Fingers crossed to have no leaks!

The simple joy of a full night's Sleep. To go all the night without a peep. No fussing, or crying, No awake there lying, thinking maybe she'll quiet back down. But knowing I'll be getting up with a frown. To not have to make the blurry eyed trip upstairs, to go and check on her underwears. To have a diaper that last's all the night, and made without chlorine which gives me a fright. Yes made safe for the earth and my daughter too, That would be a dream come true.

"If I ran the world," said this mother so sleepless, "Then, tonight, and all nights, would be nights so peep-less No tossing or turning, no diapers to change. No stinky wet sheets to wash and arrange." "Why can't there be diapers that don't spring a leak? And aren't filled with chemicals, my interest is piqued. There are wonders of science so fine and so fair And flying fazooms that whizz through the air." "My baby most dear has been lacking his sleep. His mother, hardworking, lays counting her sheep. Please Seventh Generation, come rescue me! I'm so sick of waking to a babe covered in pee!" "My query is simple- a diaper most fair Made of soft, recycled fibers, not air. Just as gentle, yet tough as the others you make But for these, help them last a night, with me un-awake." "Oh wait! They exist! My prayers aren't for naught Here are the very diapers I sought! Seventh Generation now makes overnights and I am now free Now, forgive me, as I go dance with great glee!"

Due to Seventh Generation overnight diapers I’m happy to convey, That my toddler’s 12 hour sleep Does not end with pee all astray. It stays in her diaper And not on her sheet, Not on her pajamas Or even her feet. Since the pee does not wander I need not launder. We can save the world, With the Lorax, One diaper at a time. He’s an environmental friend Of both yours and of mine.

Yes, I am the Mother who speaks for the boys, which you seem to be thinking don't make lots of noise. But I'm also in charge of the nightime routine, which plays such a role in the Mother's drinking wine. A night without a peep means the wine she can keep! In the refrigerator for company, of course. Now, thanks to your diapers which promise this wish, Mother can wake without a hangover to dish.

Who has the time to rhyme, when your son is ready to play? Who has the time to rhyme, when he confuses night with day? I sure thought life was busy before, as I the lights, and softly shut the door... And wonder, just wonder, if he might... finally sleep for more than 2 hours at a time, preferably 12.

Oh Wyatt my boy,  Oh Wyatt my dear, I'm coming terribly close to losing my mind I fear. You're so sweet in the daytime, So smiley and kind, But when the sunshine goes down, you're out of your mind. You eat and you fidget, You waggle and widget, You're my very own tiny ninja midget. I love you sweet boy, that's truer than true, But its time to sleep, Do it for me, if not you.

Did you ever have the feeling there's a dreamer in your screamer? That perhaps just maybe, there's a napper in your baby? Or a sleeper in your creeper? Well, that's the kind of house I live in and I hope I never leave it.
