*Thank you Dreft for sponsoring this post. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products I truly love.
With 3 kids under the age of 5, I do a lot of laundry, and know some stuff about kids clothes. And I’ll be the first to admit I have a problem with buying expensive baby clothes. I can’t help it…they are just so freaking cute. I put a lot of time and effort into caring for my children’s clothes as well as possible, so that I will be able to resell them (for as much as possible), or save them for my kids’ kids one day. This love of children’s clothes has helped me bond with other moms who feel similarly, as well as with my own kids, especially when it comes to our newest baby Millie Blake.
In addition to adorable clothes (and lots of them!) everyone knows that a good baby laundry detergent is also a baby essential. But did you know that there’s a baby laundry detergent that actually help you bond with your baby? I mean think about it – that sweet baby smell is something everyone talks about with babies. It’s a smell I know and love. If you accentuate that smell it’s going to make the experience of holding your baby that much more enjoyable or even when you are not holding your baby you can still enjoy that smell and feel close to them.. To prove this, a new Dreft survey of parents found that 8 out of 10 parents feel that using Dreft can make them feel more bonded with their baby. I wash all of our family’s clothes in Dreft because I love the smell and the smell reminds me of my babies. A sweet smelling baby in sweet clothes that just smell like sweetness? There’s nothing better than that!
What’s great about Dreft is knowing you are also taking the best care of your baby’s skin when you wash their clothes in Dreft. Many detergents can irritate your sweet baby’s skin so you need to be extra careful about what you use when washing baby’s clothes. But you don’t have to sacrifice nice smelling baby clothes. Dreft purtouch detergent is formulated to be hypoallergenic and gentle on delicate fabrics, while still having that sweet smell of babyhood.
I know there are other moms and dads out there who love their baby clothes as much as I do. There is seriously something about a sweetly dressed baby that makes my heart burst. Life is short – dress your baby sweet and make their clothes look fresh and smell nice too with Dreft! The time that they are babies is so short, so make sure you do everything possible to bond with them as much as possible during this time!
