My son used to be a dream to put to bed. Enter terrible twos. Getting him upstairs for a bath is fine but when we take him out, chaos ensues. He hates getting dried off so we tried to let him do it himself. That really doesn’t work. He also hates getting his diaper on or getting dressed and runs around the bathroom in a hyper state. Story time used to be a dream as well and he would sit on our ... More
At what age should I change from baby wash to kids wash? Also, I just moved up north from the south and never had a static issue with her hair until me moved here, any tips on how to help reduce the static? Or shampoo brands that'll help reduce it?
Our LO is about to be 18 months and adores bath time with one exception—washing hair. She likes having her scalp rubbed but hates the rinse step. As she’s gotten bigger it’s difficult to get her to sit, and helping her tilt her head back to keep from being (practically) water boarded is proving impossible. Any tips appreciated...unfortunately, the visor-type bath hats are not an option
My LO is 3 months old and we bathe him every other day as the doctor said he doesn’t need a daily bath. On the day we do bathe him he sleeps longer at night, 8pm-5:30am when we don’t bathe him he sleeps 8pm-2-3am. Can we bathe him daily to help his sleep?
I’ve been making this for awhile now and it’s so much cheaper than buying store B.B. 4 cups of water, 4oz of whatever liquid soap you’re comfortable putting on your LO, 3oz coconut or olive oil (or glycerin). Mix it up and pour it into a squirt container. Enjoy:). Edit: the coconut oil is better when it’s the liquid/fractionated form. Like the now brand.
This is going to sound weird, but our 1 yo baby has recently been trying to drink her bath water. She drinks a lot of water during the day (easily 3-5 sippy cups worth plus milk). We’ve offered her the sippy in the tub when she first started doing it, but she doesn’t want to drink. Then she goes back to lifting the water pourer (you know, like to pour over her head) up like a cup, or even le... More
My daughter used to love taking baths. She’d splash around and play with toys and often wouldn’t want to get out. It seemed like immediately after she turned one she started to hate them. She refuses to sit down and keeps grabbing at me to pull her out. No toy works, I change the temp in case that’s the reason and no temp works. The struggle is so bad that my ceiling below the tub is getting wa... More
In a few months I will have a newborn and a 2 year old. For those with kiddos close in age, how do you manage bath time with two? Once they’re older I know it’s easier. But I’m more so asking about the first few months when my littlest one will be tiny. Should I give them baths separately or try to do it all at once (saving time/energy). Just trying to get an idea of what my new “routine” could... More
So my LO loves those squeezy bath toys that suck up and squirt out water, but even with trying to always get all the water out, they grow mold and are disgusting. I tried hot gluing the openings closed but my little mechanical engineer figured out how to get that off in a second. Any tips on how to keep them clean or close the holes up??
My son is now 25 months. Right around when he was about to turn 2 he started to develop some fears of the shower which impacts his ability to enjoy the bath. This happened after my 4 year old turned the shower on him. My 2 year old now HATES the bath. However, it goes in waves- 2 weeks of hate on, 3 weeks off etc., we are currently experiencing the worst bath fear yet. He’s also severely afra... More
Has anyone experienced their honest baby soap change colors. We got so much baby soap for my baby shower 4 years ago. I am just now getting to the Honest Baby sweet vanilla orange stuff. And some of it is clear and some dark orange and some in between. I’m assuming it’s because it’s somewhat organic? Thought I could easily google it but came up with nothing.
Sorry this is so dumb. My 21 month old has her first ear infection and is on antibiotics. I forgot to even ask about washing hair for the next 10 days. I assume you have to avoid water in the ears!? I will call the office tomorrow but looking for answers now.
