This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.
Without a doubt babies are messy! More so when they’re learning how to eat and feed themselves solid foods. Did you know that studies have actually shown that the smashing, throwing and playing with their food actually helps them learn?* Science confirmed what kids seem to instinctively know even! That playing with dirt and mud is fun, of course, but did you know that it actually helps soothe, calm and relax children? In short, playing with mud can make them happier kids!**
TWITTER PARTY TIME!
