Each evening after dinner, my husband and I gather our kids and head on up to take baths. It’s actually daddy’s time with our kids. I typically will clean up the kitchen then head up to pick out clothes and get things ready for the following day. Meanwhile, all I hear in the bathroom is LOTS of giggles from our kids.
Bath time has been my husband’s thing for a long time now with our kids. Of course, I give them baths as well but I’m with them most of the day, he only sees them a few hours before bed time so this is his way of having some quality time with them. I honestly think they probably like daddy giving them baths better because he’s more ‘fun’. A fun fact for you is that actually 54% of dads are the primary parent to bathe their children in their households. That holds true in our home.
Typically, in our household more water is out of the bath than in the bath and my husband usually looks like he went through a car wash by the time he’s done. In the end though, the kids are happy, he’s happy, and they are clean!
The second we mention bubble bath to our daughter, her entire face lights up with joy and she starts yelling ‘bubbles’ and heads upstairs. Did you know that bubbles actually help babies stimulate hand-eye coordination and discover new objects. The bubbles actually stimulate their senses as well through touch and smell. Of course on top of all that they are really fun for babies in general!
Right now JOHNSON’S® is launching their JOHNSON’S® SO MUCH MORE™ campaign. They are really focusing on enhancing bath time to stimulate the senses of babies. They want to give parents the opportunity to nurture their child’s ability to learn, think, love, and grow. Bath time is a multi-sensorial playground and gives parents the perfect opportunity to evoke different senses in a variety of ways.
JOHNSON’S® has been around for over 120 years and is the #1 baby skin care brand. They know skin well and they are very in tune with the needs of babies.
Do you use scents for your baby bath time? Studies show now that babies who use a scented product actually display 30% more engagement cues with their parents in the bath, they also spent 25% less time crying! WOW! I immediately think of Lavender bath soap, that’s one of our favorites.
After reading the information from JOHNSON’S®, I am going to be regularly using Lavendar bath soap now.
How do you do bath time in your home? Do you have a bath time routine?
