This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I have two young girls (3 and 4 years old), one of which has extremely sensitive skin. So we don’t take choosing a detergent lightly in our home. When it comes to a brand I trust to keep their clothes clean and also not cause rashes or outbreaks – it’s Dreft. Dreft believes that for many moms and dads, doing baby’s laundry is more than just an ongoing chore – it serves as a way to relish in the amazing moments and stages of babyhood – and I have to agree. I know that I already miss folding those tiny onsies, and soon I will miss doing laundry for my girls at all, even though that is hard to believe.
As babies grow and develop, laundry needs change for both little ones and their families, which is why Dreft introduced a line of laundry products that are specially designed for different stages of babyhood. This makes me happy because I still like to use their products and my girls are older. Parenthood (and babyhood) is messy, let’s face it. But those messy and imperfect moments are often the most memorable and thanks to Dreft, parents can embrace the mess of #amazinghood. I love the Stage 1: Newborn detergent. It smells great, works even better, and my super sensitive daughter never had an issue when she was a baby. I may buy it now and then to wash her clothes in also – shhhh, don’t tell my husband I still use it! But luckily, I can now start using Stage 2 for her!
Dreft is the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians and the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for baby clothes. Dreft Newborn and Active Baby detergents are gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s sensitive skin, tough on stains and have a baby fresh scent. Baby scent is a powerful driver of emotion – just a simple whiff of freshly-laundered clothes with baby detergent can bring back memories of the entire amazing babyhood journey. I think that might be part of the reason I love sniffing the girls’ clothes when they come out of the dryer.
Dreft is partnering with popular reality TV couple Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” to celebrate their new role as expectant parents and share their beautiful, messy journey of “amazinghood.” I loved watching their love story and am so excited for them to journey into #amazinghood. I love that they are planning to give fans a glimpse into all the fun and messy moments to come in the year ahead.
Mama Smith’s Baby Shower Must Haves
- Party Favors – for everyone to enjoy (colored pink, blue, or green – depending on gender)
- A Diaper Cake – because we all know babies go through a lot of diapers!
- Several Bottles of Dreft Detergent – to make sure the happy couple has no stains to worry about!
- Adorable Onsies – because baby’s fashion starts at birth!
- A Baby Themed Cake & Snacks – at my baby shower my sister made a teddy bear cake & a baby carriage out of a watermelon and filled it with fruits!
- Baby Shower Games – like guessing the size of her belly or who can change a baby doll the fastest.
Speaking of baby showers, Sean and Catherine Lowes’ parenting journey and partnership with Dreft commenced at their Dreft “Loads of Love” baby shower (on April 27th) – where the couple was showered with all the love, support and essentials needed to prepare them for the arrival of their precious new baby! Just check out all the amazing goodies they got – they will be prepared for anything this baby throws at them! When asked about their baby shower registry, Sean and Catherine have noted that Dreft Newborn detergent was a must have. Their parents used it, their friends recommended it, and the smell of freshly washed baby clothes has made them even more excited for the little one’s arrival.
Over the next year, everyone can share in the Lowe’s journey through #Amazinghood by following Dreft on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where Sean and Catherine will be sharing exclusive content and messy memories.
