America's Messiest Baby Needs Dreft

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.

Hands down babies are messy. There are no questions about that. It's a given. But did you know that studies have shown that smashing, throwing, and playing with food can actually help babies learn? And science has confirmed what kids seem to instinctively know, that playing in the dirt and mud is fun! But did you know that it actually helps soothe, calm and relax children! But really, playing with mud can make kids happier!

America's Messiest Baby + Dreft Giveaway

I remember trying to keep my daughter away from the messy activities. I remember the first time we went to the lake and it rained, but she had a blast playing in the mud! Her favorite thing to do is still make mud pies. I learned better with baby #2. My son lives to get messy, he always has. And I would say that he was always my happier baby.

When you first become a parent, you have this idea in your head that things are always going to be sweet and precious, but in reality although you adore your precious bundle of joy, there are times when it is just plain messy. I remember folding all of those little clothes when we were preparing for the birth of my daughter. And all those babies socks that the dryer ALWAYS eats. With little girls, everyone wants to buy you clothes and so when I had our son, I had plenty of hand-me-downs for all of my nieces. But now we have a son. There just aren't that many boy clothes out there. The sections are smaller than girls at the store and good luck finding any good ones in consignment shops. And it's because boys are messy from the start. You want their clothes to smell baby soft, just like you daughter's did, but you also want them to be wearable without baby food stains.
