BY Allison Cerra

MIAMI Pampers is looking to connect with Hispanic consumers through a partnership with Spanish-language television newscaster Barbara Bermudo.

As part of the deal, Pampers will debut a Spanish-language blog and series of mommy video casts with content that it developed with Bermudo. The new interactive resource will offer Hispanic moms a place to connect with other moms and share useful information to assist with their baby’s development and well-being.

 

"Pampers believes that every baby is precious. We are devoted to offering parents much more than just diapers and baby products. That’s why we are listening to moms to find out what can make the most difference for each mom and her baby," said Pampers VP Jodi Allen. "Bermudo’s understanding of the challenges and worries that Latina moms face, and unique perspective as a journalist and an experienced mom, makes her an ideal partner as we create resources to make things better for every mom and every baby."
