Dads thank moms in moving video
A baby’s first birthday is also the mother’s first birthday, says this powerful campaign.
A nappy company in Japan has created a powerful campaign to honour mothers for the most trying year in their lives, according to LJReview. The moms featured in the video are taking their babies to hospital for their annual check-ups. They have no idea that the babies’ dads have planned a special treat for them.

Thank you for the things you did without expecting to be thanked

The dads take the opportunity to thank the mothers of their babies in such a moving, personal way. Not only is it the child’s first birthday, but it’s the mom’s first birthday as a mother.
