Baby Shower Must-Haves + Dreft Baby Shower Package Giveaway!!

When you become a new parent, everything changes.  And it's hard to know exactly what you will need and what you won't.  To celebrate Dreft's new partnership with Sean and Catherine Lowe (from The Bachelor!) and their own baby shower, I've rounded up my favorite baby shower gifts that are definite must-haves.  Some of these items can still be used when your little one isn't even a newborn anymore, but I particularly wanted to include items that really came in handy the first 6 months.  These are the items I (and Leighton) couldn't have lived without!

Dreft has partnered with the Lowes to celebrate their new role as expectant parents and share their beautiful, messy journey of "amazinghood."  Amazinghood is the amazing yet messy and sometimes scary journey that new parents go through.  It is kind of like a rite of passage.  = )  It includes lots of  work and imperfect moments, but those are the ones that actually end up being the most memorable down the road when you're little squish has magically turned into a toddler in what seems like just overnight. 


As babies grow, their needs change too.  This is why Dreft created a line of laundry products that are specially designed for each stage of babyhood - Dreft Stage 1:  Newborn, Dreft Stage 2:  Active Baby and Dreft Blissfuls.  The newborn and active baby detergents are both gentle and hypoallergenic on sensitive baby skin, but they're still tough on stains and have a baby fresh scent.  This has been particularly important to us because Leighton has such sensitive skin.  We use the active baby detergent right now, and it is one of the only ones we found that doesn't irritate her skin.  We don't like separating her laundry from ours, so we just wash all our laundry using Dreft.  I'll admit it, I actually love going to work smelling like Leighton's laundry.  = ) 

To help you celebrate your own amazinghood journey, I've teamed up  with Dreft to give one lucky reader their own Baby Shower  Package that includes Dreft (Newborn, Active Baby & Blissfuls), a Little Me Welcome to the World bib and Burp Set, a Little Me Giraffe Gown and Cap and a gender neutral lovey (value of $75.)  Good luck!
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.

Such a great giveaway! I'm patiently waiting my little one's arrival. I've got 8 weeks left! I've been washing his new things in Dreft and I absolutely love the smell. I cannot wait for him to be here and knowing his clothes are cleaned in only Dreft makes me very satisfied.

watching her grow into her own little person!

My favorite part so far has been when my son said "Love you" to me, without me asking for it. I was putting him into his carseat and tucking his toys around him and he looked up at me and said "Love you" as clear as can be. Made my entire week!

Bianca Munoz said...

Favorite part is the breastfeeding, babywearing, and cloth diapering <3 Watching them grow up and be amazing human beings is pretty cool too :) Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

I'm coming up on 7 months pregnant with my first little one. My favorite part so far is the kicks. He is most active at 3am and I stay up just to feel him move. Every single movement just lights me up. ^_^
