Getting ready for baby can be so exciting! There are so many things to do to ensure everything is nice and perfect when we bring her home from the hospital. I thought it would be less work this time around since we’ve already had one, but I feel like we have actually had to do more rearranging to our house this time. We have moved Michael into a new room, redone our office, made the boy nursery girly, and the list goes on and on. Among our long to do lists, one of my favorite things on the list is to prewash baby clothes with Dreft® Stage 1: Newborn.
You never know where clothes have been, if they’ve been returned, how many hands have touched them, if the came straight from a dirty factory, if they have been washed with extremely harsh detergents, and the list goes on and on. Pre-washing baby’s clothes with Dreft Newborn is imperative in my book!
Where are all of my Amazon shoppers at? I really began to appreciate the convenience of Amazon when I first became a mother. Dreft Newborn is available at major retailers and online, but I absolutely love that I can order it at the click of a button without leaving the house. Sure, Amazon comes in handy for everyone, but this is a whole other level of convenience once you have a child!
Prewashing new baby clothes is the only enjoyable laundry I’ve ever done, and if you’ve used Dreft Newborn I’m sure you know what I mean. When prepping for a baby’s arrival, I make sure to only wash the things I know she will be using in the beginning. This includes newborn onesies, blankets, sheets, swaddles, car seat inserts, socks, and beanies. I always tell new moms to make sure they don’t tear off the tags on every single thing in the closet to wash right away. You never know how long they are going to fit in each size, so take your time!
The fresh scent brings back so many memories of when Michael was a newborn! I love it so much. The entire nursery smells amazing and makes me so excited to cuddle a newborn again. Survey found that Dreft Newborn’s iconic scent helps parents feel more bonded and connected wit their little ones, and I completely agree.
Look how cute and tiny her little clothes are! Aside from the dreamy smell, Dreft Newborn is gentle on baby’s skin, which is very important to us. It is exclusively made for babies and is the #1 recommended baby detergent by pediatricians. It is really reassuring to know that I am using the best product out there for our baby girl. You would think that it might not get out all of those tough stains since it is so gentle on baby’s skin, but let me tell you, Dreft Newborn works wonders on stains over other brands! (Yes, I have tried the generic brands and they just don’t compare.)
Well… the laundry is done! (For now, at least.) I really enjoy organizing everything once it’s all washed and ready to go. We have a bin for swaddles and burp cloths next to the glider, cubbies in the closet for all of her onesies, and hangers in the closet for the fancier outfits.
Sometimes I even include a bottle of Dreft Newborn with a cute pack of swaddles or an outfit as a baby shower gift.There’s nothing like cuddling a swaddled newborn baby. I consider Dreft an essential baby care item, and it makes the perfect practical gift!
