How to make Bath-time better

As you know when it comes to your kids bath time there are so many products out there at the moment, literally hundreds and a fair amount of them your don't actually need and end up being wasted or left unused. We try and keep our lives as clutter free as possible and I thought it was a good time to share what we have found useful of late and products that have actually made our life a little easier.



Green people shampoo



When it comes to Baby G's bath time we are only using two products at the moment, both natural based and organic - The Baby wash & Shampoo from Green People which is so very gentle, has no irritants and is perfect for those with sensitive skin and best of all a little goes a long way. We are also using Weleda Calendula Body Cream to help keep the little mans skin nice and moisturised. It goes on really well and doesn't feel oily, we will be sticking with both for a while.

Cuddledry - I have to admit I was a bit sceptical at first when I heard about this towel that protects you from getting while drying your bundle of joy and we have actually used it at ever wash time since he was about 3 weeks old. It's so useful and wonderfully soft and easy to put on on yourself which is great as I often do bath time before John comes home so I need things that can be done without the help of anyone else and the Cuddledry is perfect for scooping Baby G out of the water straight into my arms and the cuddledry, while I wrap him up and get him dry.



kids toothbrushes


The Rockabilly Kids toothbrush - this is more post bath time really but we usually brush teeth straight after bath time before bed and I will be the first one to admit that getting a 4yr old to willingly brush his teeth for more than 20 seconds is pretty hard but Mr A has really been enjoying using this fun and innovative toothbrushes. For one they are easy for little hands to use, with a thick base that they can grip on, secondly they never fall over as the round base is weighted to keep them upright all the time.




Alphabet foam letters - we find that Mr A loves to learn how to spell new words in the bath time and out of all the toys, bath crayons  and other things that can clutter up your bathroom he uses these the most and they are educational to boot. I picked up a tub of these at my local supermarket for a few pounds and we use them everyday and I am sure Baby G will enjoy playing with these colourful letters as well.

  1. I love the Green People baby stuff, it's so gentle and smells fresh instead of artificial! I've been thinking about getting the girls Rockabilly toothbrushes for a while and now I think I might just bite the bullet and order them, they look fab x

  3. We've always tried to use organic bath wash too as Theo's had sensitive skin quite a lot, and these are great!

  4. We have similar toothbrushing battles in our house. Not looking forward to having two kids to persuade to brush teeth!

  5. The Green People stuff looks lovely, we had Beaming Baby when E was little. In fact I think we still have loads because remembering to do bath time is really not my strong point! x

  6. Those toothbrushes look great! I've never been a fan of bathtime, it's Mr C's job and in fact as I write this I am waiting for him to get home and give the kids one! x
