Get the World Ready with Dettol

Before L was born I have prepared the house for the new arrival by cleaning every corner, washing all her newborn clothes, ironing them and storing them in newly opened bags. Since then we have moved house due to some issues with the neighbours just 2 days before giving birth. Once L was born I didn't have time to clean the house properly, but Dettol wipes were always close by in case I need them.

"Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve been through it all before, a little help to get everything ready for your new arrival can go a long way.

No matter how clean your home is, it’s essential to take extra care when you’re preparing for the arrival of a new-born or have a toddler keen to explore. Adopting these simple hygiene habits will ensure that your home is hygienically clean and safe for your little one:

Healthier Surfaces
· Nurseries should be kept free of harmful germs, especially in the first few weeks. Don’t forget it’s not just the changing mat and cot that can harbour germs but also frequently touched areas like the door handles and light switches. Dettol Anti-bacterial Surface Cleanser has no taint, no odour and no bleach and is suitable for use in baby contact areas.

Germ Free on the Go
· From that first night in the hospital to the first trip out, keep car seats, highchairs and all your baby equipment germ free with Dettol Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes which kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are great for hard to reach surfaces and on the go.

· Keeping your hands clean, before and after handling your little one, is really important to make sure germs don’t spread. If you’re feeding, changing, or perhaps handling food or pets, try our Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System. It automatically dispenses anti-bacterial Hand Wash, after you place your hands under the nozzle to help prevent the spread of germs.

Added Laundry Protection
· It’s not just re-used baby clothes and bedding that can harbour germs, new ones can too! While washing at low temperatures is kind to baby’s clothes, it doesn’t offer protection against bacteria which can survive below 60˚C. Use our unique Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser alongside your normal detergent and softener to guarantee hygienic cleaning, even at temperatures as low as 15˚C.

Dettol have released videos highlighting Mums excitement and concerns from bump to baby and beyond 
as part of a ‘Get the World Ready’ campaign. The films also offer some practical tips and advice to get your world ready for a new arrival.

The first film of the series, Get The World Ready For Your New Arrival, shares the excitement and apprehension of expectant mums preparing for their new addition to the family. From name-picking to decorating, and cleaning to taking classes, all new mums want to make the world a perfect place for their little ones’ arrival.

Get the World Ready for bringing baby home

Get The World Ready For Bringing Baby Home shares the thrill and relief of new mums welcoming baby into their home for the first time. With so much to learn about sleeping, feeding and changing, it isn’t easy. But mums can do it, and do it with all the love in the world. 

Get the World Ready for your little one
The third film, Get The World Ready For Your Little One, shares the exploration and adventure when your baby turns into a toddler! Mums will pick up their little one when they fall down, and the little ones will learn to trust their mums to do so. Through the bumps and bruises, a heartfelt bond continues to develop, so you can take on the world, together".

We have previously tried Dettol  when one of us wasn't well as a way of protecting little L from catching any bacteria, it seems to do the job and keeps my mind at ease.
