Ever since our babies came home from the hospital, we’ve made it part of our bedtime routine to give them baths. Every single night – with few exceptions! I know not every family bathes their children every night, but it’s just such an important part of our routine, I feel like we’re really missing out if we don’t. Few circumstances lead us to skip baths: late nights when the kids need to get to bed as soon as they can and giving their skin a break. Both of my boys unfortunately have a bit of eczema and suffer from dry skin, and unfortunately bathing frequently can make those problems worse.
With my boys’ sensitive skin, I was glad to see that JOHNSON’S® Baby has improved their JOHNSON’S® NATURAL® baby bath time products, which now have 97-99% naturally-derived ingredients. It seems that parents these days are now, more than ever, very concerned with what products they use on their children, as they should. JOHNSON’S® NATURAL® products are also paraben-free, dye-free and phthalate-free. JOHNSON’S® has over 100 years of baby care knowledge, they just keep getting better and better, meeting the needs of parents for decades.
Bath time has always been my husband’s time with our babies. It has helped them bond significantly, and it’s a really nice little break for me. While he bathes them, I am preparing to put Ethan to bed after their baths and then Jay will put Braden to bed. It also gave Jay the confidence to be around our tiny newborn babies, as like most men, he didn’t really spend much time with babies until we had our own. He has been giving our babies their baths since they came home from the hospital. He is officially the bath expert and often tells me what I’m doing wrong if I have to take over for some reason!
Jay, believe it or not, is very fickle when it comes to bath products. He likes the soap to be very bubbly and JOHNSON’S® HEAD‐TO‐TOE® Baby Wash passed the test! I was super excited to see the JOHNSON’S® NATURAL® line has a baby shampoo too, as Ethan’s scalp is very, very dry. The JOHNSON’S® Baby Lotion smells yummy and isn’t greasy at all. I finally noticed a big difference in using it on Ethan’s dry scalp, and I am so thankful for that – thank you, JOHNSON’S®!
