Baby Laundry Tips and Products

Happy Tuesday amazing readers! ¬†Thank you for visiting my blog today. ūüôā ¬†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.

Favorite Products:

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. ūüôā ¬†I just love baby scent!

Tips:

  • 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.

If you have any questions at all feel free to ask. ¬†ūüôā ¬†If I left anything out, leave it in the comment section. ¬†If you have not yet subscribed to my blog just enter your email in the follow tab down below on the right hand side.

7. You will definitely need gripe water for Gas, Colic and Hiccups.  I have used both of these and they both work perfectly.  Click on either of the images below.

   

8. Diaper rash ointment is a must to prevent or treat any kind of rash. Click on either of the images below.

9. Alcohol free hand sanitizer for when you are changing their diaper, preparing their bottle, or even holding them.  They have very sensitive skin so alcohol free hand sanitizer is a must. Click on the image below.

10. Laundry detergent for your newborn’s clothes. ¬†Click on any of the images below they both work great.

 

11.  Puj Tub, a foldable and compact tub that can fit in a sink so that you are close to your newborn while bathing him or her and your baby will definitely feel secure.  Click on the image below.

12. Baby soap for their bath, I have used both below and they are both amazing.  Click on either of the images below.

13. Baby lotion to keep their skin moisturized after every bath.  Click on either of the images below.

14. Baby bottle soap and pacifier soap is a necessity.  Click on the image below.

15. Nose Frida the snot sucker to clean out your baby’s nose. ¬†You will use this all of the time for sure. ¬†It is also very easy to clean. ¬†Click on the image below to purchase it also comes with extra filters so you don’t have to buy those seperately.

16.  Along with the Nose Frida you will need some kind of saline spray to loosen their snot before you aspirate it out.  Click on either of the pictures below.

These are the items that I found to be an absolute necessity besides clothes ofcourse.  Check out my Baby Must Haves Part 1.  My daughter is now 9 months old and I still use all of these items so they are definitely a great investment.
