When Lion was born, I wasn’t sure what to expect. When the doctors told me that they suspected he had Down syndrome, I was floored. Then, two weeks later, when it was confirmed, I went searching for every bit of info that I could. Books, blogs, everything Internet was my constant friend.
I was very encouraged by the information that I read, and I had a list of things to be on the look out for. One of those things to look for was sensitive skin. The book I read even went as far as to say if you found a brand of diapers that worked, don’t switch.
Imagine my surprise when I changed his brand of diapers and everything went fine. I thought we had sensitive skin beat, that it was something we wouldn’t have to battle. Until I changed again…
Poor Lion broke out in a horrible rash. And then there was this patch, that almost looked like a burn, which left a scar, which made me feel horrible. That diaper never touched his bottom again.
And it was this that opened my eyes to how careful I need to be over Lion’s skin, even as far as the laundry detergent that I use for him. I didn’t want a repeat of what happened from the diapers to happen all over his body, so I decided a sensitive skin detergent might be the way to go.
When I tried the Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Laundry Detergent, I found a keeper. I love the scent and I feel comfortable using it on his clothes. I know that the sensitive skin formula is dye free and specially made for all kinds of washers. The light scent is perfect for our clothes, not overwhelming at all.
The true test came when Daddy Head didn’t even notice the switch. No questions asked means he was happy about it. And Lion tolerated the switch wonderfully.
Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin Plus Laundry Detergent also was much easier to measure out the amount needed as well. Many brands have dark colored lids which makes finding the mark you need hard to see. This green lid was easy to see and now I don’t feel like I am using too much detergent.
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Arm & Hammer and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
