Dreft #Amazinghood Baby Shower 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.

When anyone thinks of babies they of course think of sleepless nights, diaper surprises and sporadic schedules.  Yes, parenthood and babyhood is messy. But I personally think of the sweet smells of baby powder and baby freshness.  Those messy and imperfect moments are often the most memorable and thanks to Dreft, parents can embrace the mess of #Amazinghood. 
It's been a little over ten years since our last baby shower so being on top of what's new and innovative was our challenge.  We had fun registering but there really is so much more out there now for babies.  We had two baby showers, one for my friends and one for family.  Our first shower was a cute little man cub theme and we played games including match the celebrity to their baby photo.  This shower was hosted by my best friend of almost 20 years (wow!).  Our second shower was an ocean/beach theme and we had it at a local park with family.  We were blessed with many great gifts but after them both, I couldn't wait to get all the cute little outfits we were gifted, home so I could wash them with Dreft detergent and have his nursery smelling like sweet baby freshness!  I may have even used the blissfulls in our laundry just so I could get my daily dose of baby on my own shirts!  Laugh all you want but it's been proven that baby scent is a powerful driver of emotion – just a simple whiff of freshly-laundered clothes with baby detergent can bring back memories of the entire amazing babyhood journey.

Dreft is partnering with popular reality TV couple Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” to celebrate their new role as expectant parents and share their beautiful, messy journey of “amazinghood.” I was so excited to hear this because I've been following Catherine's pregnancy journey on social media because we're due just a few weeks apart from each other.  Sean and Catherine Lowes’ parenting journey and partnership with Dreft commenced at their Dreft “Loads of Love” baby shower (on April 27th) – where the couple was showered with all the love, support and essentials needed to prepare them for the arrival of their precious new baby.  When asked about their baby shower registry, Sean and Catherine have noted that Dreft Newborn detergent was a must have. Their parents used it, their friends recommended it, and the smell of freshly washed baby clothes has made them even more excited for the little one’s arrival.

 Dreft offers 3 products, Dreft Stage 1: Newborn; Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby and Dreft Blissfuls. We of course, had Dreft detergent already on our registry.  It wasn't until I was sent the Dreft Blissfuls in the mail, that I added them to our registry as well! Dreft Blissfuls are little tabs that dissolve in water, safe for all fabrics and loads and has that long lasting baby scent!  Your child is only a baby for one year, but with these magic tabs you can bring back that baby scent anytime and let the memories come flooding back!
