If you are a regular reader of my little blog (thanks so much if you are!) then you may have seen me chat about JOHNSON’S baby products from time to time. It’s safe to say we are fans! I was given so many gorgeous JOHNSON’S products as gifts when Mini was born that we didn’t have to buy any for a whole year (I used to have a shelf just for them in her wardrobe). So when I was asked if we wanted to try (**) a few products from the Bedtime range we were more than happy to do so.
We were sent the Bath, lotion and powder from the range.
JOHNSON’S promote a 3-step bedtime routine which has been shown to help little ones sleep much better within one week. The routine is simple, bath, massage and quiet time, all of which are aimed at helping your little one fall asleep quicker and for longer time periods making you in turn get a better nights sleep!
I believe that routine is great for kids, especially in the early days having a little bedtime routine that you follow quite regularly in my opinion really helps your little one (or it did for Mini) unwind, relax and get into bedtime mode. We recently switched back to bath time’s mostly at night for the winter (As we had been doing them in the morning during the summer), so have incorporated these products over the last month or so.
We add this to her bath, it makes gorgeous bubbles, which she loves! Bubble beards and mohawks all round! It is really mild so no tears or red eyes which is a major plus, The scent is NaturalCalm which seems to be a mixture of aromas, but it is really light and pleasant. I find this bath makes her skin really smooth and soft, even when dried.
We used to do baby massage regularly when she was smaller but now she’s more grown up we don’t do it as much. Instead we use this as more like a moisturiser. She loves to get it on though and will stand infront of me holding out her arms or step each leg forward individually to have it applied. It is really light texture, very silky and not sticky, so great for after bedtime, it absorbs quickly into the skin too making easy to use before dressing. The scent is again NaturalCalm, perfect for baby massage!
Powder isn’t something we use a whole lot but when we received this we started to incorporate alternatively with the lotion. Mini loves this! I think it’s the novelty of the powder, she holds her wee hand out for it and pats it gently into her arms or tummy! So cute. It really does leave her skin feeling really soft and smelling gorgeous! This is probably my fave product out of the three (shh don’t tell Mini but I do use it the odd time myself too and love it!).
I would say after using these products she always seems quite relaxed ( though she is a brilliant sleeper and goes to bed well anyway) but this does she to have a somewhat calming effect. We really like these products and would repurchase them in the future!
