#DreftSpring Dreft Hypoallergenic #Giveaway and Twitter Party Announcement!

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.


It's Party Time!

First off, let me tell you about an upcoming Twitter party. 
On May 9th at 9 PM EST / 8PM CST join 
Dr. Hes to learn more about Dreft and have the chance to win great prizes!! 

Dr. Hess is the medical director of Gramercy Pediatrics & New York Magazine 'Top Doctor' and she wants to share some great information with you about the gentle and hypoallergenic baby laundry detergent, Dreft, as well as offer you some helpful tips on how to ensure baby is protected and comfortable outdoors during these awesome, but allergy-agitant Spring-weather months.  You can RSVP to that party here: bit.ly/1RMCLle, and be sure to tell your friends. The more the merrier for this one! 

Prizes:

  • Toddler Hypoallergenic Pillow and Pillowcase + Dreft Product

  • Hypoallergenic Bamboo Baby Washcloths, Hooded Towel & Laundry Basket + Dreft Product

  • Spring Picnic Basket, Picnic Blanket, Little Me Gift Card

  • GRAND PRIZE: $250 AMEX + Dreft Product

  • RSVP: Dreft product



When it comes to laundry, nothing says 'baby' more than Dreft. Every mom I know gets googly over the scent it leaves on their little one's laundry, myself included. But there's more to Dreft than that which meets the eye (or nose, if you will). Dreft Laundry Detergent for Babies is also Hypoallergenic and gentle on baby's sweet, sensitive skin.

We recently tried Active Baby for the one-year-old in our family, and prepared a surprise bundle that included the Dreft Newborn in a gift package we put together for an upcoming 'welcome home, baby' visit we are about to make.


In that gift package, we also added some of these absolutely amazing Dreft Blissfuls, in-wash scent boosters, and a sweet Snuggle Blanket from Brooklyn Bamboo. The Blissfuls smell every bit as wonderful as the detergent, and the blanket is the softest of the soft. Anything with Bamboo Rayon is always so pleasant to the touch, so I know that blankie is going to be a welcome surprise.

The welcome home party we will be attending for the new sweet baby is going to be held outdoors. The baby is just a couple of weeks old, so it is very important for her parents to make sure she's well protected while she is out of the house.

Dr. Dyan Hes suggests for all babies under 6-months-old, that certain precautions be taken. One of those suggestions is to keep baby out of direct sunlight, and dress him or her in protective clothing, including a brim hat and sunglasses. Another tip: protecting their skin with light-weight material is necessary too. Choosing the right fabric is important, and caring for it is as well. According to Dr. Hes, "When it comes to fabrics, it's extremely important to seek out gentle and hypoallergenic items to care for the items that touch baby's sensitive skin. It's also essential that fabrics be cared for properly. Wash baby's items with a specially-formulated product such as 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 it remains safe and hypoallergenic for babies."

Those two tips are good for any baby being out and about, but they are especially relevant right now, with the Spring weather being here (hurrah!) and going full force. Don't be afraid to take the little ones out, just take precautions before you do.


Now I have more good news!! I not only have a gift package that I've put together for the sweet new baby in our lives (whom I cannot wait to go visit) but I also have a giveaway for you!! One lucky winner is going to get a super soft Brooklyn Bamboo Snuggle Blanket and Dreft Hypoallergenic Baby Laundry Detergent Gift Pack! US entrants only!

And unrelated to the giveaway, but still important: don't forget to RSVP for the Twitter Party mentioned at the beginning of this post. :)

You can learn more about Dreft by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

The super soft Brooklyn Bamboo Snuggle Blanket sounds amazingly soft. Pairing it with Dreft for sensitive skin would be great.

Leke Awonuga said...

Expectant mothers I guess will be in for a treat by now. Dreft, do sound new tho, but expanding for a wider outreach should be their goals to ensure their brand is out there on the streets for customers to acquaint with!

Phylicia Marie Pineda said...

Do they ship worldwide? I'd love to be able to gift this to my mom friends :) Joining your giveaway too!

Brandy Ellen said...

I used to use Dreft when my middle son was a baby, he has sensitive skin. Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I totally entered.
