It's spring and the flowers are in bloom, and the weather is getting warmer. It is a lovely time of year, except for one word: allergies. My youngest son and I step outside our house and can smell the orange blossoms beautiful fragrance, but to my oldest son it makes him sneeze. It started about two years ago, but as the temperatures rise so do the allergens. I realized that giving him allergy relief medicine was not enough, and I had to look into hypoallergenic products for his sensitive skin. Even though my baby is not a baby anymore (he will be seven this summer!), I remembered the hypoallergenic products Dreft offered to him when he was a baby. These products are gentle on his skin, and it was so nice to smell that baby scent again that Dreft has. I also enjoy that it is safe for everyone in the house to use, especially if you have a baby at home or one who is in need of hypoallergenic products like my son.
As I was looking more into Dreft products again, I noticed they have a new partnership with Dr. Dyan Hes, a mom and pediatrician. She is the Medical Director of Gramercy Pediatrics in New York City, and was recently named a 2013 top doctor by NEW YORK magazine. She also sits on the board of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.
Dr. Dyan Hes:
My favorite tips from Dr. Hes:
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.
Protect Problem Skin: Heat is a common trigger for eczema and as the weather warms up, there are a few things you can do to help prevent flare ups of such skin irritations. The sun is strongest between the hours of 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. so try to shield baby 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!
