Safe & Hypoallergenic Spring with Dreft and a Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored collaboration with DIME Media and Dreft. All words expressed are 100% my own.

Dreft the #1 baby detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby's skin.




Spring weather has finally arrived in NYC and that means even more days out in the sun.  
It's been a very long, almost never ending Winter but the temperature is finally rising and that means more days at the park. Especially when you have very active children. We are always at the park whether for Soccer or just to walk around. But with Spring also comes allergy season and skin irritation for little ones or older kids who have sensitive skin. I should know, my two children suffer from seasonal allergies and eczema. That's where Dreft products come in hand, I mean it has been the number #1 for almost 80 years now. My kids have had great Summer days thanks to Dreft.
I've been using Dreft for 11+ years now. Not only is it gentle on clothes but it is also a hypoallergenic product, which leaves baby clothes or your 12 year olds clothes feeling comfortable for warm days outdoors but it also leaves it smelling amazing, who doesn't love the smell of baby. I personally love washing my kids linen with Dreft and cuddling with them.
I am especially loving their new line of detergents, which is set for each stage of your baby. One being newborn and the next one for toddler and up. Let me not forget the new blissful for even more baby smell.


Excited to let you guys know that this Spring, Dreft has partnered with Dr.Dyan Hes. 
A mom and medical director of Gramercy Pediatrics. 

Here are some helpful tips that she has shared to help parents minimize irritation on baby's skin this spring:


  • Shade the sun: The long awaited spring season means increased outdoor time for parents and their babies. When heading outside, don’t forget to practice appropriate baby skin safety. 
  • * For babies 6 months or older. If your baby is 6 months or older, liberally use sunscreen. Also, avoid exposing your baby to the sun during peak hours — generally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — and dress your baby in protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses. 
  • Load up on liquids: Staying hydrated during the spring months is important as baby gets more active outdoor time and sun exposure. Start with the inside and ensure children get enough to drink throughout the day. Infants should nurse or take a bottle often; older kids should tote a sippy cup or reusable water bottle. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and smoothies in your child’s diet too. 
  • Protect Problem Skin: Heat is a common trigger for eczema and as the weather warms up, there are a few things you can do to help prevent flare ups of such skin irritations. The sun is strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. so try to shield baby from direct sun exposure during
