We’ve partnered with Dreft, the company that has been helping moms and dads clean up after their kids for more than 80 years. They’ve created new products to address every stage of babyhood. All of them are formulated to be tough on stains, but gentle on baby’s delicate skin. Use these new products on the big, messy, beautiful journey of #Amazinghood.
My family and I recently got together to celebrate life’s Amazinghood moments. Because we all have the same name, Mom, I made rhinestone t-shirts to remind us that whether we’re 27 or 77, we wear the name proudly.
During the event, we took time out to reflect on how laundry is more than just a chore. It’s also a way to see how your family is changing and growing. I remember well often crying when I folded clothes because I’d find outfits my kids had outgrown. I also remember when they moved out; how small our laundry seemed. I truly missed caring for them.
And now that generation is going through their own Amazingood. New babies, growing babies, and soon enough they too will experience the joys and sadness of their children growing up and moving on.
During the party, we all wrote on paper baby t-shirts what we love most about laundry. Some were funny, some silly, and some remembering the past.
We shared cookies and punch and passed out gift bags filled with Dreft products including:
Dreft Stage 1: Newborn Liquid Detergent
Specially formulated for a newborn babies’ delicate skin, this hypoallergenic formula is the #1 Choice of Pediatricians. It works in high efficiency (HE) and standard washing machines and a 100 oz bottle gives you 64 full loads.
Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby Liquid Detergent
Created for the developing baby in mind. It removes 99% of baby food stains in addition to the grass and dirt stains that appear when baby starts crawling. It also works in both standard and HE washing machines and gives you 64 full loads of clean.
Dreft Blissfuls In-Wash Scent Booster
Dreft Blissfuls is an in-wash scent booster that works with the Dreft detergents to give you more of the baby fresh scent you love. Use Dreft Blissfuls in any load of laundry for lasting freshness. It completely dissolves in water and can be used for any stage of childhood. that you can enjoy with every wiggle and tickle of baby’s fabrics. Sprinkle it right into the washer; it’s safe for all colors, fabrics, and loads.
It didn’t take long for the bartering and trading to take place until all the new mom’s had plenty to keep their washers running for awhile. But that’s what moms do. They make sure other moms have what they need.
I’m so grateful I got to spend some time with my mom, sister, nieces, and daughter-in-law. They’re all amazing people who make my life so much richer for knowing them.
