The winter months can really dry out your skin. I hate that itchy feeling you get under your clothes when there isn’t any moisture in the air. Now picture that annoying feeling for your little one. Poor things can’t even scratch if they needed to!
Here are some tips for Keeping Your Little One’s Skin Protected in Winter:
- Make sure your baby’s bath is lukewarm. The warmer the water, the more likely it is to dry out your little one’s skin.
- Moisturize immediately after bathing.
- Swaddle your little one to keep in the warmth.
- Use mild soap and detergent.
“Little Ricky” has always been so sensitive as most babies are. Due to his sensitivities, I’ve always had to use special soaps and creams to add extra protection to his skin. That’s why when cleaning his clothes I had to pay special attention to how the detergent would effect his skin.
Sometimes when trying to pick out a detergent that is hypoallergenic for your little one, the stain fighting powers suffer. Some may think, “Why should I care about stains? Babies don’t even walk around yet.” Apparently those people have never had to get carrots out of onsies or the smell of spit up out of burp cloths.
As parents look to bundle up their little ones this winter, it’s important that they seek out hypoallergenic items that are gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. One of those items is Dreft, the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s skin. Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a babyhood scent beloved by moms and provides little ones fabrics with an amazing clean, yet it remains safe and hypoallergenic for baby. Specially formulated to be gentle on baby’s skin but tough on stains, Dreft brings cuddle time to a whole new level of warm and fuzzy this winter season.
Now that my kids are older, I still buy Dreft to wash my most gentle items! It has great stain fighting powers and the smell takes me back to simpler days when the kids couldn’t walk or talk yet!
