My word for the year this year has been to Simplify. While it’s not always at the forefront of my mind, I find myself making subconscious decisions all the time that help to simplify my life. One of those decisions was to start bathing the kids together.
With both of my kids, there are a few things that have always stayed consistent through their bath time routine. For one thing, bath time almost always comes after dinner. But as their needs change, the routine is adjusted and the products we use change. When Chloe was tiny, I would bathe her alone in a baby bathtub, but as she got older and sturdier, I started to bathe her with Caleb. I want bath time to be as easy as possible, so they go in at the same time, get washed up with the same products, and they come out at the same time.
Once they started bathing together, we made the switch to JOHNSON’S® Head-to-Toe Wash & Shampoo. This is something else that has helped me to simplify. It’s one product that works for everything from - you guessed it - their heads down to their toes. Head-To-Toe® Wash and Shampoo is an ultra-mild, gentle cleanser that is safe for a baby’s sensitive skin (and eyes). It’s also free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and dyes, which was a big part of JOHNSON’S® renewed commitment to Choose Gentle. The pump bottle makes it easy for me to get the product out and onto the kids without having to pick up a slippery bottle, and the kids love to use it on themselves - even Chloe holds out her hand so I can put some in it and then she scrubs her belly.
JOHNSON’S® Head-to-Toe Wash & Shampoo really streamlines the bath time process, and when you’re in the middle of the crazy evening hours, one less step counts for a lot! Because it is such a great multi-purpose product, when we go on vacation, I make sure we always buy a bottle and we can all use it all over (including Mom & Dad)!
Another product that we have added into our routine, especially with all the drying activities of summer like swimming and sweating, is JOHNSON’S® Baby Lotion. Their classic baby lotion is now made with coconut oil, and it keeps delicate skin soft, smooth and feeling healthy. Baby’s skin is nourished for 24 hours with this mild formula. It has the classic smell we all know and love but it has no parabens, phthalates or dyes. I keep this on Chloe’s changing table and after her bath, I make sure to apply some. The best part about it is that is absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any unwanted residue, so my hands aren’t slippery or greasy afterwards (because it doesn’t leave a residue, this is actually what I use on myself, too!).
The great thing about these products is that they are really affordable, and you can find them anywhere, including online at Target.com or Walmart.com
