Disclosure: This post & giveaway were made possible by iConnect & Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I’ve had the tops of the MotherStucker mobile for 14 days straight! Yes! #JeepHairDontCare – Spring has FINALLY sprung & outside temperatures are climbing – Bliss… unless of course, you or a family member have allergies. Here in the south, the “Pollen Apocalypse” continues to coat every surface in yellow death. No matter where you call home, the spring season brings allergens front & center & coupled with rising temps, this can trigger skin issues for kiddos.
Cleaning your little one’s clothes in a gentle, hypoallergenic product like Dreft, is a great way to help keep baby comfortable during the spring season. Dreft is the No. 1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle & hypoallergenic on baby’s skin. Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a baby scent beloved by moms, & it remains safe & hypoallergenic for baby.

Dr. Hes Tips – Protecting Baby’s Sensitive Skin during Spring Allergy Season:
1. Shade the sun: The long awaited spring season means increased outdoor time for parents & 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. — & dress your baby in protective clothing, a hat with a brim & sunglasses.
For babies younger than 6 months. If your baby is younger than 6 months, keep him or her out of direct sunlight. Protect your baby from sun exposure by dressing him or her in protective clothing, a hat with a brim & sunglasses.
- Make bath-time beneficial: Over exposure to water can actually rob skin of natural moisture. Scaling back on tub time will help avoid resulting itch — about 10 minutes is plenty of time for water play & a quick scrub. Use warm water (vs. hot) & leave the suds to the very end. Use a mild cleanser to keep skin soft & itch-free. Gently pat skin dry & end with an after-bath moisturizer to seal in moisture & protect baby’s soft skin.
