Babies are messy…that’s a fact. Many parents believe that they need to use a harsh detergent in order to get stains out of baby clothes. That is where I like to intervene as both a doctor and a mom. Harsh detergents are so damaging to a baby’s skin. Dreft Stage 1: Newborn baby laundry detergent is tough on stains but is also gentle on baby's sensitive skin. Dreft Newborn is a hypoallergenic baby laundry detergent that has an irresistible baby scent. Most people think that a sensitive detergent cannot be tough on stains. This is where they are mistaken.
Dreft detergent is specially formulated to be gentle on newborn babies’ delicate skin, while still helping to remove all those classic newborn baby stains. I tell parents to pre-soak their little ones’ stained clothes in some Dreft for 30 minutes prior to washing baby clothes, or even better – they can use the Dreft Laundry Stain remover. I am a big fan of the Dreft Portable Pretreater Pen, because most of the stains happened to my kids while we were on the go.
Dreft is the #1 choice of pediatricians because we know it is gentle for your baby’s extra sensitive skin and it is hypoallergenic. Occasionally, I will see babies with rashes from the chemicals in other detergents that are not formulated like Dreft. It’s actually really nice for me as a physician to be able to endorse a detergent, Dreft, to my patients.
