Spring has sprung! Now that the weather is finally beautiful, my family loves to spend time outside. These are the days that we spend on our deck bbq’ing with friends and family and our little one absolutely loves playing in the grass. Unfortunately with the change of the season comes a ton of seasonal allergies and other worries that can be daunting to our children. With the heightened allergens in the air, rising temperatures can trigger skin irritations so I am always looking for gentle products to protect my little one’s sensitive skin.

Cleaning your children’s clothes in a gentle, hypoallergenic product, like Dreft, is a great way to help keep them comfortable during the spring season. Dreft is the Number 1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s skin. Dreft has been trusted for over 80 years and comes with a baby scent that is loved by Mothers.

Dr. Hes has teamed up with Dreft to bring you some of her top tips to keeping your baby comfortable during this spring season.

  1. Shade the sun – The long awaited spring season means increased outdoor time for parents and their babies. When heading outside, don’t forget to practice appropriate baby skin safety.

 For babies 6 months or older. If your baby is 6 months or older, liberally use sunscreen. Also, avoid exposing your baby to the sun during peak hours — generally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. — and dress your baby in protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses. 

For babies younger than 6 months. If your baby is younger than 6 months, keep him or her out of direct sunlight. Protect your baby from sun exposure by dressing him or her in protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses

2. Load up on liquids – Staying hydrated during the spring months is important as baby gets more active outdoor time and sun exposure. Start with the inside and ensure children get enough to drink throughout the day. Infants should nurse or take a bottle often; older kids should tote a sippy cup or reusable water bottle. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and smoothies in your child’s diet too

3. Choose the right fabrics and care for them properly – When it comes to fabrics, it’s extremely important to seek out gentle and hypoallergenic items to care for the items that touch baby’s sensitive skin. It’s also essential that fabrics be cared for properly. Wash baby’s items with a specially-formulated product such as Dreft, the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians to be gentle and hypoallergenic on baby’s skin. Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a babyhood scent beloved by moms, and it remains safe and hypoallergenic for baby.

    My favorite activity for spring is to walk to our local library with my daughter. It isn’t too far from our house and there is a playground on the way! She is almost 2 and I am due with baby #2 in a month. I am hoping to still be able to walk her as often as I normally do once I have them both 🙂

    Thank you!!

    My favorite Spring activity that I enjoy doing with my girls is going to the nearest park and play some table games there. We also enjoy playing frisbee and hide and seek. Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing giveaway.
