Dreft Stages #DreftSpring
Blog - April 25, 2016

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.


When we brought Henri back from the hospital, Dreft was one of the first things we purchased for our first load of baby Henri’s laundry.  I couldn’t bare to think that my newborn might have any kind of allergy to detergent.    I wanted only the best for him and I trusted Dreft.

Later on, as he got older we incorporated other detergents thinking that since the newborn phase was over, he wouldn’t be effected by detergent anymore.  But every time we took a trip to the pediatrician’s for allergies, the he would recommend fragrance free, hypoallergenic detergent because he was not allergic to anything specifically when we tested him.   Detergents can cause allergies that can’t be detected in allergy tests.  Although Dreft is not fragrance free, Dr. Dyan Hes, who has partnered with Dreft and is the Medical Director of Gramercy Pediatrics, says that Dreft is hypoallergenic and is as gentle as washing baby in water alone.  Now that Dreft has Stages to meet the laundry needs of our babies as they grow and develop, I can use Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby for my two year old.  There are no shortage of stains in this house living with three males!  So I can depend on Dreft Stage 2 to remove 99% of baby food stains and other outdoor messes.

In addition to Dreft Stages, Dreft has come out with an in-wash scent booster called Blissfuls which brings back that baby scent I am missing so much lately.  It dissolves completely in water and can be used with any color clothing or fabric.  I think I’ve found something to replace my baby fever while watching my two and four year old slip into childhood.unnamed

Dr. Hes also has some tips for us moms on protecting your baby’s skin during spring allergy season.  One of these tips is to make bath time beneficial.  Growing up, my Yia Yia never believed in bathing every day.  She said it dried out your skin.  Now that I am an adult I understand where she’s coming from.  Dr. Hes also says that if your child spends too much time in the tub can rob skin of natural moisture which can leads to itchy skin which leads to irritation and can escalate from there.  Ten minutes in luke warm water is ample time to get the kids bathed.  She suggests pat drying and following with lotion.

She also recommends on loading up on liquids.  Because I grew up in Arizona, staying hydrated has always been important to me.  So I take a reusable water bottle (which saved us at Disney) and carry bottled water everywhere I go.  If we have a choice of milk or water, I pick water for the kids.  Dr. Hes also suggests having plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and smoothies in your kids diet.


Dreft is the No. 1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians, including Dr. Hes to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s skin. Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a baby scent beloved by moms, and it remains safe and hypoallergenic for baby.  Dreft is hypoallergenic and gentle on baby’s skin

  1. Dreft is good for anyone with sensitive skin. I know many who use it for the elderly and ill since it doesnt have all of the stuff in it thats harsh and it is easier on the skin.

  2. Ugh, I wanted so badly to love Dreft but it was awful for our family’s sensitive skin!! I wish they would completely get rid of the scent in it!! Nothing with so much fragrance can be completely hypoallergenic!

  3. I used Dreft when my boys were babies. I loved it. They didn’t have the stages back then. This sounds great. Thank you for sharing

  4. I have been using this detergent for a bit now. I feel it has been wonderful for my clothing and me as a person with sensitive skin
