Would you believe that Dreft is the No. 1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby's skin. It's been trusted for over 80 years & comes with a baby scent beloved by so many moms while remaining safe and hypoallergenic for baby and toddlers. I'd love to share a few tips from Dr. Hes on how to protect sensitive skin during Spring Allergy Season.
Dr. Dyan Hes was recently named a 2013 top doctor by NEW YORK magazine, is the Medical Director of Gramercy Pediatrics in New York City and sits on the board of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. She said we should:
* Make bath-time beneficial: Over exposure to water can rob skin of natural moisture! I give my daughter 10 minutes for water play. Within that time she can play, I wash her up, rinse her off and done. Use warm water (vs. hot) and leave the suds for the very end of the bath. Use a mild cleanser to keep skin soft and itch-free. Gently pat the skin dry and end with an after-bath moisturizer to seal in moisture and protect baby’s soft skin.
* Protect Problem Skin: As I mentioned before, heat is a common trigger for eczema and as the weather warms up, there are a few things we can do to help prevent flare ups of such skin irritations. As some of you may know, the sun is strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. so try to shield your little love from direct sun exposure during those times. There are also apps available that can inform you of the hottest part of the day – which can be helpful for parents as they plan any outings with their little ones!
Now Let's Direct your attention to this awesome Giveaway for the same Dreft Hypoallergenic Package that we received! Enter Below!
Good Luck To All!
