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.

Swimming with Minnie Mouse

Thank you Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving us the Minnie Mouse towel and wet bag for free. 

My kids love to swim. I started both of them in swimming lessons before they were even a year old. As a result, they never met a pool they didn’t like and we always have to be ready to get wet – especially in these hot summer months. I’m always looking for ways to make our weekly swim class (and various other pool and beach outings) just a little bit easier and that’s where the Minnie Mouse towel and wet bag come in.

Tips on Helping Babies with Sensitive Skin

From baby acne to cradle cap and eczema, babies tend to get skin issues due to their new, sensitive skin. Soren has had bouts of it all! We’re currently working with him on a bad case of eczema and this humid, hot, Georgia weather isn’t helping! As a mother, it’s easy to feel like you aren’t doing enough for your little one when they struggle with something like eczema. I’ve definitely found myself feeling self-conscious about his sad, patchy skin on his sweet baby thighs. BUT I have to tell myself and realize that I’m doing everything I can and it’s quite normal for little ones to struggle with skin issues. More often than not they grow out of these types of things. Their little epidermis is new to this world! While I strongly urge you to consult your pediatrician for any issues concerning baby, here are a couple tips we live by to help little Soren out with his particularly sensitive skin.

Appreciating the Simplicity and Relaxation of Baby's Bath Time

It’s the end of the day. I’m tired… no, I’m exhausted. I mommied it up extra hard today. Pancakes, home school lessons, laundry, errands, swim lessons, more errands, breaking up sibling arguments, dinner… and oh yeah, dinner. It feels like the day that never ends. Yes, it goes on and on my friends. Then bedtime creeps closer and I’m doing a happy dance up the stairs. But first, bath time.

5 Cozy Bathrobes for Your Little One

My girls love taking baths (and now that they aren’t infants, it’s nice that I can sit on the floor next to the tub and flip through a magazine while they play in the bubbles).

But when it’s time to get out, there are always a few tears and blue lips.

These bathrobes to the rescue! Bath time ends on a happy and warm note with these snuggly robes.

Our Nighttime Routine

Lately, one of my favorite parts about the day is when Soren and I go upstairs for the night and start his nighttime routine before bed. Since Soren is a newborn and doesn’t have too much knowledge about the time of day, I wanted to start creating a routine with him that he could get used to and associate with bedtime. This has also become such a special bonding time for us too. :) Check out our routine schedule below:
