Happy Friday! It’s almost the weekend baby!
Our weekends from now on will be getting for baby Liam. Setting things up, decorating his room. And washing all the adorable and cute baby clothes.
I think this is the time when it hits you that you are going to have a baby. Or at least for me. It was always washing the clothes and setting up the hospital bag that you get that “holy cow; I am going to have a little baby” feeling.
I, unfortunately, didn’t save any of the boys clothing to pass down. Part of me was hoping for a girl. The other part, since Jadyn and Colin are under a year apart and both born in January the clothes have all been worn too many times.
So this time around I am starting all over again, and I’m secretly excited (Jordan’s wallet, not so much, haha). I mean who doesn’t like to buy baby clothes?! I also love shopping for boy clothes.
With both boys, Dreft was always my go to, I used Dreft with both the boys until they were about two years old, and this time it won’t be any different. Dreft is a brand we trust here at the Brown’s household, and I’m super excited to partner up with Dreft purtouch because it’s a brand not only we trust, but we a brand that we love.
Aside from the absolutely amazing fresh baby smell (which I could smell all. day. long.) Dreft purtouch is a new 65% plant-based baby detergent that is hypoallergenic and made with naturally-derived ingredients. So it’s gentle on baby’s skin.
Dreft purtouch is free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates, ethanolamine and optical brighteners – specially formulated to help make the world gentle for baby. Jordan and I can rest easy knowing Liam won’t be in contact with any harsh ingredients on his delicate baby skin. Dreft is also the #1 pediatrician-recommended baby detergent brand, and 90% of dermatologists surveyed agree that baby clothes should be cleaned with a gentle detergent.
As baby grows and develops, Dreft purtouch also effectively, yet gently cleans – removing up to 99% of baby stains. YAY for messy feedings, and fun adventures! I can’t tell you how many times I thought Dreft wouldn’t get a stain out from Jadyn or Colin’s clothes. Only to find out after washing it did!
Why is it so important to wash your baby clothes before he/she is born? Did you know that dirt, excess dyes and processing chemicals can linger on baby’s clothes? Pre-washing is an important step to help protect baby’s skin. In fact, a recent Dreft survey revealed that 9 out of 10 dermatologists say that it is important to wash baby clothes before first wear.
As I get ready for Liam and wash all his clothes, I want to give my pregnant mama’s a little tip. One thing I do in those final weeks, is I start washing my tops, and Jordans tops with Dreft. Because Mom and Dad are the ones to hold the new baby the most, it wouldn’t make sense to wash baby’s clothes alone, but to wash your tops. That way those sweet newborn cheeks and face is also not coming in contact with anything harsh.
Have you tried Dreft before? Do you also wash your baby clothes before they wear them? Share below! I would love to hear from you!
