All Free Clear

Dear Diary,

This week, my daughter’s preschool class answered questions about their mommies in anticipation of Mother’s Day. When asked how old is your mother, my daughter replied, I think she’s 60. Sixty??? I laughed and told her dinosaurs are old–not mommy! We were on our way to see the new Pterosaurs exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. (We recently bought a family membership, otherwise I would not know what a Pterosaurs was!)

As we pulled into the parking lot, we talked more about our favorite section of the museum–the dinosaurs. I don’t think I’m as old as these bag of bones! And thanks to switching over to all® free clear detergent, we definitely don’t have dinosaurs dry, itchy skin. The detergent is the #1 recommended brand by dermatologists, allergists and pediatricians. But I didn’t need a recommendation. The choice was a no brainer, since Caitlynn experiences eczema outbreaks. I found that all® free clear is the best laundry detergent to combat kids eczema.

Plus, since Caitlynn also inherited Hay Fever, the detergent is a perfect choice. It removes 99 percent of top everyday and seasonal allergens, including cat and dog dander, dust mite matter, ragweed, grass and tree pollen. So instead of worrying about eczema and allergies, Caitlynn was free to be a kid. Thanks in part to all® free clear detergent, she was comfortable in her skin–physically and literally. She spread her wings and explored exhibits.

And she didn’t spend the day scratching. Her skin was as soft as a skunk. But it smelled much fresher, since all® free clear detergent is 100 percent free of dyes and perfumes.

I picked up a bottle at Sam’s Club in the laundry detergent aisle.

Since it comes in bulk, I don’t have to worry about running out, and my little one doesn’t have to worry about her sensitive skin this spring.

In addition to using a detergent that is hypoallergenic and clinically proven to be gentle on skin, I take other cautions to eliminate eczema outbreaks. I dress Caitlynn is lightweight, cotton clothing when she runs and plays. I also use fragrance free bath soap and lotion. Note, lukewarm water is best for bathing. If she complains of being itchy, I add oatmeal to her bath, and she soaks for 15 minutes.

Then, she relocated to Washington, D.C. to obtain a teaching certification and instruct 8th grade reading at a high needs middle school. She later returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh, PA to raise her daughter Caitlynn, now 4-years-old. During her 10-month-stint as a stay-at-home mom, Caitlynn inspired her to create this blog, and Diary of a First Time Mom was born on Mother’s Day 2012.
