Dreft #MessiestBabyContest and Giveaway

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Welcome All…to the Dreft #MessiestBabyContest and Giveaway

Babies and toddlers are sweet and cuddly and oh we do love them…but they are MESSY.

Getting dirty is just a fact of life and it isn’t always a bad thing.  Getting into messes is a learning experience.  Children are able to experience different textures, smells and often tastes.  And above all getting messy is FUN.

Give your children the opportunity to get down and dirty now and then.  Finger painting is a great activity.  The cool creaminess of the paint…the bright and vivid colors…the realization of mixing two colors together, to create a third color, and the pride when that painting is hung on the fridge for all to see.


Food play is another fantastic adventure for kids.  As long as older children understand when playing with their food is appropriate.  I think that we all have those first birthday cake smashing photos of our little ones.  Some approach it timidly – dipping a finger into the frosting and gingerly licking it off.  Others will dive in head first savoring every morsel with relish.

Get outside and make mud pies.  Let the mud squish between fingers and toes.

Dreft Stage One Newborn’s hypoallergenic formula is gentle on newborn baby’s skin. Dreft Stage 2 Active Baby is specially formulated to tackle stains after baby starts eating solid foods and crawling all over the place. Dreft Blissfuls in washer Scent Boosters leave clothes smelling GREAT!

But, what do we do in the aftermath of all the MESS? Dreft to the rescue! Now there are 2 formulas available, along with great smelling Blissfuls Scent Booster.
