About mid-March I had a little panic attack. I realized that Jude's arrival was a bit closer than I'd realized. May 16 is coming quickly and I'd rather not pack for the hospital and put the bassinet in order after my contractions begin. I made a list of 'to-dos' and have been faithfully checking them off ever since.
Check List Item for the Week: wash Jude's newborn wardrobe
I heard somewhere that you are supposed to wash baby clothes in special detergent. I walked the aisle at Wal-mart hoping a mom would appear on the aisle to give me advice.
No one came.
I spotted Dreft. It has a baby on the cover so I felt relieved.
I picked it up and gasped at the $15 price tag.
I bought it anyways and started my first load of baby clothes yesterday. Dreft smells just like a clean baby. I wanted to bury my head in the pile of clothes after I'd washed them.
The container said that I should wash his clothes in Dreft until he is 18 months old. Is that true?
If so, I should buy some stock.
