There is nothing like the smell of a new baby. Kissing the top of that sweet little head and breathing in their deliciously indescribable smell is one of my most favorite things. But what they don’t tell you as a first time mother is, there’s a lot of stinky things that come along with that sweet face. My oldest little was about 2 weeks old when I discovered the disaster that is the blowout. It was my first venture out of my home with my new baby and I couldn’t wait to show off how adorable she was. We weren’t in to our destination more than five minutes when I heard the sound of well, … poop. The pink outfit she was in was now full of yellow goo, and so was my own shirt and hair. Yes, my hair. I was unprepared without an extra change of clothes for her or myself, and was forced to leave my outing about as quickly as I arrived 🙂
It’s hard to believe that these four clean little faces could be so messy. The laundry for a mother of four is literally never ending. As soon as I have the masses of dirty clothes finally washed and clean, I check the hampers only to discover that they’re filled again. Especially with my three girls, each piece of clothing seems to be attached to a special memory, and I can’t help but feel nostalgic as I load the washer with the grass stains and chocolate milk dribbles. Even as I write this post I am starting to tear up thinking about how much they’ve already grown. Becoming a mother is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me. Parenthood is more like, #Amazinghood.
Now thanks to Dreft, I can more adequately tackle the messiness that goes along with #Amazinghood. Dreft is the #1 baby laundry detergent of choice from pediatricians, and the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for washing baby clothes because it’s super gentle and hypoallergenic.

- Dreft Blissfuls- which is an in-wash scent booster to give you more of that delicious baby scent you love and adore.
Anyone who knows me well knows not to call me on a Monday night because I will be watching The Bachelor. I was super excited to hear that Dreft was partnering with Sean and Catherine Lowe and their soon to arrive bundle of joy. Dreft wanted to give fans a vision of Sean and Catherine as they embark into the fun and messy life of #amazinghood. Dreft threw the couple a “Loads of Love” baby shower where they were showered with all the love, support, and baby products the couple would need to start their journey into #amazinghood. Both Sean and Catherine agreed that Dreft Newborn detergent was a must-have in their house, and said that the smell of the freshly washed baby clothes was making them even more excited for the mess to begin! Follow Sean and Catherine’s journey through #Amazinghood by following Dreft on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where Sean and Catherine will be sharing exclusive content and messy memories.
