I’m so excited that Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner. Now my family can be outside more enjoying the beautiful weather. We all love to be outside when it’s nice out. We find a lot of things to do when the weather is nice. The only thing that isn’t very fun that comes along with nicer weather, is allergies. Those can be very difficult to deal with at times. Those that have allergies could trigger skin irritations with some children. It’s important that we be careful about this with our kids.
This often means making sure to provide our kids with the best products to help them out when the allergies do hit. Most of us look for products that are gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. Dreft is one of those products that are very gentle on baby’s skin. Dreft is the No. 1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s skin.
Dr. Hes has some tips for protecting baby’s sensitive skin during Spring allergy season. I’m going to share with you two of the tips she has.
Load up on liquids: Staying hydrated during the spring months is important as baby gets more active outdoor time and sun exposure. Start with the inside and ensure children get enough to drink throughout the day. Infants should nurse or take a bottle often; older kids should tote a sippy cup or reusable water bottle. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and smoothies in your child’s diet too.
Protect Problem Skin: 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!
Those are just a couple of her tips, and she’s got many more. There will be a Twitter party where you can join @Dreft and @gramercypeds on May 9th from 9-10 EST as they host the Twitter party with pediatrician and mom, Dr. Dyan Hes. She will be sharing more of her tips to ensure that your baby is protected and comfortable during the Spring allergy season. Make sure to RSVP HERE so that you can be entered to win some of the many great prizes.
How many of you have or are currently using Dreft products? I used these with my daughters when they were babies because it’s one of the brands that I could actually trust for my girls. I love that they now have more products now too. They have a laundry detergent stage one for newborns, laundry detergent stage 2 for active baby as well as blissful scent boosters. I love the scent boosters! I’ve always loved the smell of the Dreft products as well. It makes your babies clothes smell amazing.
