Happy Tuesday amazing readers! Thank you for visiting my blog today. 🙂 Today, I will be sharing what I learned as a new mom when it comes to doing Naila’s laundry from the moment that I washed her very first newborn outfits until now.
As a new mom all I knew was that I had to wash most of her Newborn clothes before she was born so that they were ready for her. I wasn’t really thinking about how many times her poop would come out of her diaper or how many times she would spit up on me and on herself. That was definitely a new mom moment.
Not all detergents are suitable for your baby’s sensitive skin. My favorite baby laundry products are from Dreft.
Dreft Stage 1: Newborn, is a hypoallergenic baby laundry detergent that has an irresistible baby scent. Not all hypoallergenic detergents are good at removing tough stains but this one did a good job until she started eating solids.
Dreft Stage 2: Active baby, is what I started using when she started eating solids. This one also has the lovely baby scent and is tougher on stains. Your infants skin is less sensitive at this age.
Baby Oxi Clean: I started using this when the stains were too tough. I place her stained clothes in a solution of warm water mixed with the Oxi Clean and leave it there for about 15 mins. and then I continue to wash with the Dreft Stage 2 detergent.
As they turn older, by older I mean 1-year-old for us at least, the smell of the detergent doesn’t stay for long anymore so I started using Dreft blissfuls in-wash scent beads which contain the same scent and it just makes the scent stronger which makes it last longer. 🙂 I just love baby scent!
- If you want your baby’s clothes to shrink wash them in warm or hot water and dry in high heat. If you don’t want them to shrink then do the opposite, all cold.
- For your baby’s clothes not to look worn don’t dry them in heat just air dry.
- For their tiny socks use a wash bag to place them in while washing or else you will probably lose a few since they are tiny.
- Wash stained clothes and items such as burp cloths together and wash delicate and non stained items separately.
