Bathing Baby

Bathing Baby is a precious part of the day. Read on for cute bathtime game ideas, toys and songs to make bathtime a bonding experience between you and your squirmy squirt.

My Little Squirt's First Big Girl Bath

Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and giving me a Finding Nemo tub and Finding Nemo bath squirters for free.

Amani is a tiny little character. Somehow, she seems so small, but she’s actually bigger than her sisters were at her age. The size of her clothes correlates perfectly with her exact age, sometimes even sizing up. All the while, she appears so little. Perhaps it’s this illusion that she’s still a tiny fish that had me always bathing her in my bathroom sink. After mopping up all the water off the floor from another bath, I realized it’s finally time to move her up to something bigger and more comfortable.

Making Bathtime Magical with Just a Little Help

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me these Finding Nemo bath products for free.

As Dory likes to say, “just keep swimming.” Our little guy tends to take that to heart when he gets into the bathtub. I remember his very first bath after coming home from the hospital, where he cried and screamed the entire time. Now, it’s a challenge getting him OUT of the tub. Then again, we may be making it a bit too fun for him now that he loves it so much.

A "Mommy Brain" Moment!

It’s official: I need 4 more arms and 12 more hours in the day. I feel like I can never get enough done from the time I get out of bed in the morning until I lay my head back down to go to sleep…actually it’s more lay my head against my headboard as I try to get Bentley or KJ to fall back asleep. My kids fight falling asleep sooo hard.

5 Fun Ways to Engage Your Baby

Miss Margot just hit the 4-month mark. Each day, she is growing more and more and showing off more of her personality. She’s super alert and LOVES to interact with others – me, her daddy, her big sisters, etc.

With a little one, it’s sometimes hard to know what kinds of things are developmentally appropriate for a certain age or stage. Margot can’t yet sit up by herself, and she certainly can’t do most of the things her older sisters like to do, so it’s important for me to make sure I’m interacting with her on her level. Here are 5 of my favorite ways to engage my 4-month-old baby…
