This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Our little guy just turned one on the 20th of October! Time sure does fly, I always heard people say that, but I think until you have your own little sweetie pie, you don’t truly see how fast it really is going by! I remember bringing him home and being scared of what to do, and now he runs all over the house playing! I am very thankful I get to stay at home with him, so I get to take part in each new milestone he reaches!
We can’t always sweat the small stuff, a little mess here and there is always a little fun, right?! Rather than sweating the small stuff, parents should rejoice in the fact that a messy baby is a sign of a happy,well-adjusted one and not worry that it may reflect poorly on them as parents. Parents can brush off the spaghetti stains on the party dress and the grass stains on pants and enjoy every moment while Dreft tackles the mess. Dreft has partnered with Dr. Hes, and she shares some great “messy baby” tips! Here are a few of her tips she shares, to make memories with your babies!
Count the fun and use your fingers: Use your little one’s food as a fantastic way to learn how to begin counting. When snacking, start counting with your little one and encourage them to use their fingers. Also, this is a great time to use food to help them learn how to properly grasp things. It will take time and practice so let them get a little dirty with their food and practice, practice, practice!
Load up on bibs: Bibs are a great way to capture those messy food moments. Once your little one is done with meal time, throw the bib in the washer with Dreft Active Baby to easily tackle the mess so you can do it all over again. The mess went way beyond the bib? No problem—throw that outfit in the washer too!
Splish, Splash in the Bath: Bring fun toys and activities into the bath and let your child splash around and have fun. Make sure to use warm water (vs. hot) and use a mild cleanser to keep skin soft and itch-free. Gently pat skin dry and end with an after-bath moisturizer to seal in moisture and protect baby’s soft skin.
I also wanted to share Dreft is excited to launch the Dreft America’s Messiest Baby Contest, inviting families to submit photos of their favorite messy baby moments!
