Having had three children in a four year timespan, it’s safe to say that I’ve consumed A LOT of baby products. And over those four years, a variety of new products have come to market, as well as some of my needs changed, therefore, products have to change in our home.
However, there are a few tried and true favorite products that I just can’t live without because I’ve seen firsthand the difference that it’s made in my children’s lives.
One of those products is Johnson’s Bedtime Baby Bath and Lotion. Ok, that’s actually two products, but from the same line of products.
LET ME TELL YOU…these two products, used together and consistently with your young child are a GAME CHANGER. NO JOKE!
I couldn’t believe the difference I saw with my first child when I started incorporating the bedtime bath and bedtime lotion into our daily routine, over six years ago. And I’m happy to say that it still works today, on my two and a half year old.
We all know how important sleep is for both baby and mom. It helps with both physical, emotional and cognitive development. Establishing a bedtime routine that becomes familiar with your child is a crucial step in ensuring that they have a good and sound sleep. And when they have a good night sleep, YOU have a good night sleep too!
Johnson’s has a clinically proven 3-step bedtime routine to help your baby or toddler sleep better. Let’s talk through it!
Step 1: Bath
A bath helps your child know it’s time for sleep. Johnson’s Bedtime contains NaturalCalm, which is an exclusive blend of aromas designed to soothe and calm your baby in preparation for sleep.
It’s important to note here that Johnson’s Bedtime products are paraben free, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. They are also gentle on your child’s eyes with their “no more tears” stamp of approval!
Step 2: Massage
This is hands down MY favorite part of the process. Not only because it allows for some quality bonding time with your child, but because the amazing smell that will send YOU into bliss-land!
These familiar scents can help make your baby feel happy and relaxed and lead to a better nights sleep. Johnson’s Bedtime lotion has hydrating emollients that leave your child’s skin feeling soft and smooth.
Honestly, there are many nights after I’ve had a bath, that I choose to use Johnson’s Bedtime lotion for myself because it smells so good and leaves me feeling calm and ready for bed.
Step 3: Quiet Time
Using the few moments after bath time to allow your child to relax and unwind through quiet activities such as reading or listening to music has proven to help improve your child’s overall sleep.
Establishing this or a similar routine will be a game changer for a child that isn’t sleeping well. Studies have shown that a baby cries nearly 25% less before sleep when bathed with a fragranced product than those who are not. As someone who has tested this product out for years, on my children, I can confidently say that I have seen the positive effects of using Johnson’s Bedtime before bed.
My son LOVES his bath time and I can always tell a difference when I use Johnson’s Bedtime Bath in the tub. For me, it’s a great multi-use product: bubbles, body wash and shampoo! It works perfectly for all!
Now that my son is a little bit older, he loves to get his hands involved and spreads the cream all over. We are usually laughing while doing this which leads to great bonding moments right before bed.
This products is SO great and I can’t recommend it enough for your baby and toddler. Even now when I use the products on my youngest, my daughter will ALWAYS walk into his room or bathroom, take a deep breath and breathe a sigh of relief saying “Awe…I LOVE that smell!” It still conjures up great and peaceful memories for her, years later!
So here’s to a good night sleep, for both you and your baby! Sweet dreams, little one!
