Question for the mom's

How important is it to use laundry detergent that is free and clear, fragrance free for newborns?  I remember using Dreft for my daughter.

Did you use a special detergent?

I washed all of her clothes in a free and clear liquid before she was born. I still use it as a precaution. My husband told me that he uses the scented stuff when he does the laundry! Ugh..Oh well, she is okay I guess!

I did use Dreft. I think now, I would consider making my own. I already make our detergent so I guess I'd google a recipe for a baby!

I did wash all of his clothes in a free and clear but was just thinking I bought more laundry soap but none of it is free and clear.

Dreft never got my boys' things clean (they puked and pooped a lot)

I bought some Name Brand like Tide- the "free and clear" kind.(for me as much as for them- the other makes me itchy)

I make my own now though.

We've only ever used Free and Clear, even before baby. Then my oldest (now 12) had eczema as a baby...I can only imagine how much worse it would be with the scents and additives in regular laundry soap.

Seriously, I love the smell of dreft, but I don't feel good putting my baby in clothes that have been washed in extra chemicals. Their skin is so delicate!!

Now 3 girls total...and we still use Free and Clear. :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
