Recently, we transitioned Lexi’s nursery into a playroom and turned Mia’s room (our oldest) into a big girl room for both our girls to sleep in. Huge step for them both, but even more so for myself as it’s just another reminder of how fast our girls are growing up. The truth is, I’m very sad that Lexi’s now in the toddler stage. It’s been hard for me to accept it and embrace it more as she’s our second child and also our last. So with that said, I’ve been holding onto a few baby things and more importantly, trying to keep the baby smell from fading away altogether.Holding Onto The Baby Smell-Dreft Purtouch-the mother overload-baby detergent

We started using Dreft purtouch baby detergent as it’s 65% plant-based, hypoallergenic, free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates, optical brighteners and it’s been proven to be gentle on baby’s sensitive skin. Also, aside from Dreft purtouch being naturally-derived, it removes up to 99% of baby stains. It’s currently the #1 dermatologist & pediatrician recommended laundry detergent for baby clothes. But the best part is that it has an iconic baby scent, which helps me feel more bonded and connected with my little ones.

That indescribable feeling I felt as I held each one of them in my arms for the first time and laid eyes on them. I was so in love and overwhelmed. Those first few weeks were grueling and exhausting; however, seeing them fast asleep on my chest and smelling their sweet newborn smell certainly made up for it all. And in retrospect, I didn’t realize how those sweet baby moments would last such a short while. It’s true what they say; as a parent it feels like life is set on fast forward and our kids seem to grow way too fast. Which is why I’m holding onto the baby scent and all the snuggles and wet kisses I can get.

And I’ll admit, I was skeptical to use Dreft as most baby scented products have a bad rap but so far so good and the baby smell is so scrumptious. Interestingly enough, a new Dreft survey backs up our experience with Dreft as well. 94% of parents say that the scent of Dreft also reminds them of their baby. And when they are apart, 87% of parents agree that the Dreft scent helps them feel more connected and closer to their little one. Which is why I took one of Lexi’s small blankets with me to my last influencer conference. The indescribable baby smell itself reminded me of her and made me feel like she was there with me. Even more, the research has found that  8 out of 10 parents feel that using Dreft can make them feel more bonded and connected with their baby.

So if you also want to feel connected and closer to your little one add Dreft purtouch to your shopping list or registries and give it a try. I’m sure you’ll love the scent and all the benefits too. Comment and let me know if you do try it and what you think!

 

Abrazos (hugs),

    I absolutely love the new born baby smell! I would totally hold it for as long as it can, I wonder if it works on toddlers laundries.

I read this a few weeks ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since. It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game more so with all the social media outlets but remember this... Stay true to who you are because that itself is what sets you apart. And how are you using your uniqueness to inspire and uplift others?

Happy Father's Day to all! Especially to my dad and this hunk. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important you both are to me and the girls. And to my love, thank you for working so hard for us and for your unconditional love! For raising our girls to be kind humans and to always believe in themselves. Oh and for finally realizing you were missing out on the matchy matchy. You totally surprised me when you said you actually wanted matching pajamas. 😆😘

  • #ad Most of us remember to grab sun protection when we're headed to a pool 🏊‍♀️ or the beach 🏖 but don't forget about all the other fun outdoor activities. ☀️ It's so crucial to keep our little ones skin protected as well as ours too! .

Loving the Aveeno® Baby Continuous Protection®  as it's free of all parabens, phthalates, dyes, fragrances & chemical sunscreen ingredients! But best of all, this sunscreen contains the highest level* of zinc oxide for superior UVA/UVB protection for babies with sensitive skin. And I've been using AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE® Lotion Sunscreen. So awesome that it's for both face + body. Save $3 off any Aveeno Sun or Aveeno Baby Sun product at CVS through Ibotta #SunnyMoments @aveenous @cvspharmacy #CVSBeauty PC: @lin_marty

  • #Diorgiftedme Loving this weightless, high-pigmented Dior Addict Lacquer Stick that glides on super easy. The best part is that it's also a hydrating balm yet doesn't compromise its bold color. .

The truth is, I’ve always been a huge fan ever since I was first introduced to wine many moons ago. ☺️ So don’t mind me. I’ll be over here doing hair flips and a happy dance with this rad vintage dress. Yay for Old School California Chardonnay! #ad @harken_wine
