This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions and moments swooning over baby items are 100% mine.
As nesting continues full force in our home, I am anticipating the arrival of Baby P more and more everyday.
We are in the process of rearranging rooms so that Mr. Charming can wainscot and paint the nursery and I am working on smaller details like finishing the registry and making sure all of our future littles things are ready for when he or she arrives.
As you are all aware of my affinity for wanting the best for the babes sensitive skin, I knew from before the time I got pregnant that I was going to use Dreft for it's hypoallergenic properties. With pollen and dust being a big problem here in the desert, laundry will be frequent and I wanted to use something that's going to sensitive enough for delicate newborn skin.
Dreft recently partnered with the renowned Dr. Dyan Hes, a top rated pediatrician by New York Magazine, a mother herself and founder of Gramercy Pediatrics.

I honestly have been having so much fun shopping for the nursery bedding, little ones blankets and the itty bitty clothes! Oh, the clothes! Even though we arn't finding out the sex until he or she is born, there have been so many cute neutral finds and I'm washing them all this week to get them ready to be hung up and tucked in to baby's room.
Choose the right fabrics and care for them properly: 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 baby. - Dr. Dyan Hes
Nothing else beats that fresh baby smell and Dreft just reminds me of memories of when my sister, my cousins and my nieces and nephews were baby's. There is just something so light and wonderful about it. And being the number one choice of pediatricians makes it a huge win in my book and makes me feel good about what I'm using on these adorable little garments.
We also purchased the baby's going home outfits. I am so in love with their vintage styles and they are so soft and now smell so, so good.
Heat is a common trigger for eczema and as the weather warms up, there are a few things you can do to help prevent flare ups of such skin irritations. The sun is strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. so try to shield baby from direct sun exposure during those times. There are also apps available that can inform you of the hottest part of the day – which can be helpful for parents as they plan any outings with their little ones! - Dr. Dyan Hes
