A huge thanks to Dreft for supporting me in hosting a fun-filled afternoon of conversation of messiest moments in motherhood with my #Amazinghood Mamas! All experiences and opinions are always 100% my own as this post is written by me in its entirety.
Nothing screams baby like a big beautiful mess. It’s those imperfect moments that make the journey of parenthood and babyhood the most memorable. It’s our #Amazinghood journey that we get to look back on and laugh at. Like that time I was getting ready to take my road test so I asked my grandmother to sit with Jason while I finished up. As I was ready to grab him and walk out the door plans quickly changed since he had been given a chocolate chip cookie and now was covered in chocolate head to toe. I’ll have to find that photo to share with you, but I remember that day as if it was just yesterday, and not 18 years ago. It’s theme moments that bring us back down to earth, that slow us down when we are in a rush and remind us of how beautiful life truly is.
The #Amazinghood campaign is all about embracing the messy moments, knowing that life is so much more than worrying about clean faces, clean outfits and perfection. Dreft products are specially formulated to be gentle on skin, tough on stains, and with a fresh baby scent. And if you’ve ever been near a baby, there is nothing more precious than the scent smell of a newborn baby. Late night feedings, big burps, explosive diapers, these are all a part of our journey through motherhood. And a part of their journey through babyhood.
As the little ones get older they find new ways to get messier. Trusted for our babies clothing for more than 80 years, Dreft has now expanded its product line to grow with our families allowing us to continue to keep making memories and worry less about the messes. Dreft believes that for many moms and dads, doing baby’s laundry is more than just an ongoing chore – it serves as way to relish in the amazing moments and stages of babyhood. Dreft has been a part of my family for over 20 years now and continues to be my go to for all my babies. I truly love the scent that the new Dreft Blissfuls leaves behind on the girls clothing, towels and bedding. I’ve even started using it on our towels.
Mamas Confessions: Messiest Moments in Motherhood
I asked my Mamas to share their messiest moments in motherhood – like mine above. Here’s some of theirs!
Confession: We had the perfect outfit picked out for her first birthday. Put it on just before guests started arriving. And then her diaper exploded.
Confession: I thought things were messy when we first started feeding solids. That was nothing compared to the mess he created when first feeding himself. My hair, the walls, the ceiling…it was everywhere.
Confession: That time I forgot the diaper bag and figured what is the worst that can happen on a quick run. Well, it happened in the form of the rejection of lunch and the baby drove home wrapped in an old t-shirt I found in the trunk.
Confession: Nothing like a good old-fashioned blow out, at your friend’s house, and you’ve got to stick your kid in their tub and borrow some clothes. That was not in the original dinner plans.
Confession: Create handprints and footprints with paint they said. It will be fun they said. I confess, it was fun, but messy, the paint got everywhere. But the memory will last a lifetime.

Our messiest moments in motherhood is what this #Amazinghood journey is all about. Through my partnership with Dreft, each Mama was able to take home samples of the Dreft Newborn Detergent and Dreft Blissfuls Scent Booster to try out on their babies biggest messes so that they can stay focused on the precious moments in front of them. I know how quickly these moments fly by, so I stalked their Facebook pages to find a special moment they shared of their little one, printed it and framed them as a special surprise.
