It feels like it was just yesterday I held my brand new babe in my arms and gently cooed into her ears as we prepared to leave the hospital .I had previously bought quite a handful of baby stuffs and knowing how important baby's journey home was to me, I had gotten a very beautiful white blanket for that moment. I watched my husband as he gently wrapped my new angel in her pristine blanket, apart from sleepless nights we both looked forward to exciting times with the new addition to our family.
Its now been well over 10 months now,how time flies!  A few days ago , I was just clearing out my baby's wardrobe as she seems to be growing very fast and I noticed a very neat pile of baby blankets which had not been touched in a while. about three of them had been gifts we received when baby was born but others had been from when I had my first child and they had not seen much use only because I hold a special preference for that first blanket my kids have had from birth, sounds like sentimental attachment.

So I simply thought to my self, ''How about you give some of these blankets towards the support of a good cause like the Dettol Baby blanket Campaign ?'' 

Let me tell you a bit about the Dettol Baby blanket Campaign.
 The Dettol Baby Blanket was launched by Rachel Stevens,Ambassador of the Dettol Anti-bacterial laundry cleanser and of course a celeb mom . She donated the first baby blanket to the campaign  with the sole aim of highlighting the shortage of baby blankets available to infants born to less privileged families and to also raise an awareness of the dangers of bacteria on baby blankets.

Dettol estimates that approximately 50 babies are born into poverty with every passing minute of each day and these infants will unfortunately experience situations reflecting a lack of  basic essentials including hygienically clean blankets.

Rachel Stevens is calling out to mums,dad,parents to donate a blanket to the Dettol baby blanket donation charity campaign to help babies in need. Upon collection of the baby blankets, they will be hygienically washed with the Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser, an additive that kills 99.9% of bacteria even in temperatures as low as 15°C , leaving all blankets germ free before being redistributed to families.

Celeb mom,Rachel Stevens wants you to support a worthy cause too.

For every blanket donated, Dettol has pledged to donate £1 to Sparks- a children's medical Research facility dedicated to funding pioneering research to make an impacting difference to the lives of children and families affected by serious illness or disability.

I totally enjoyed reliving memories of my little's ones homeward journey, I most likely reminded you of some special moments didn't I ? You really should relive your precious moments again too, share your memories on twitter with  @DettolBlanket by using #sharethememories

This is a charity campaign and I have received no financial rewards for this post. 
However,a bottle of  Dettol Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser is being sent out to myself to try out as a kind gesture for supporting this good cause.
