BATH AND BONDING TIME WITH BABY – THE NATURAL WAY
This post is brought to you by Natures Care.
Bath time with baby is a beautiful opportunity to boost your nurturing bond. For many mums and bubs, bath time can quickly become a highlight of the day – it’s time spent together, just the two of you. It’s a time to create a relaxing, soothing and enjoyable environment in which you can connect and show your baby how much you love them through caring and touch.
“Bathing plays an important part in building a healthy routine and placing bath time in the regular schedule before bedtime helps to calm and quieten. A sensible bathing routine induces sleep, with warm water, warm room and safe feelings. Bath time is an opportunity to create a familiar environment through recognisable smells and the lull of soothing water.” Says Christine Kininmonth, baby expert and Ausmumpreneur of the Year 2014.
In order to make bath time run smoothly, make sure you are equipped with the correct supplies beforehand. The essentials include: a natural soap-free shampoo, body wash, cotton washcloths, a blanket, a couple of plush towels, clean nappy, clothes and ointment for after-bath skincare.
A great baby bathtime cleanser is Nature’s Care Paw Paw Baby Shampoo and Body Wash (500mls $8.99). Made from natural plant-based ingredients, it is 100 per cent soap free and pH balanced so it cleans baby’s delicate skin, maintaining the natural balance, without over-drying.
A small amount goes a long way and because it cleans baby’s skin and hair, it saves the cost of purchasing two separate items. It comes in a handy pump pack which is quick and easy to use so you can hold baby safely without juggling bottles and lids.
After bathtime, be sure to dry your baby carefully all over. Pay special attention to creases under the arms, behind the ears, around the neck and in the nappy area.
It’s important to protect your infant’s skin from dryness and chaffing , especially when wearing nappies over night. Choose a rich balm such as Nature’s Care Paw Paw Baby Balm (100g, $6.99). It contains natural Paw Paw in a rich base of Beeswax, Sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E to help form a protective barrier from the elements and to keep skin hydrated.
Nature’s Care Paw Paw Balm is just as soothing for Mum too – pop some in your handbag and use on hands, nails and at feeding time to prevent cracking and soreness.
“I love Nature’s Care Paw Paw Baby Balm. It is so rich and is packed full of natural ingredients and I love its fresh, fruity fragrance. It’s great for hands, feet, faces, lips – anywhere – it helps to keep my skin and my baby’s skin soft and hydrated,” said Hannah, Sydney mother of two.
