Bubbles, snuggles, moisturise, sleep
Children get grubby! So giving them a good wash before bedtime is a must. As long as they get a good top-to-tail wash (face, hands, bottom), you don’t have to give them a bath daily. But a good splash around with toys, bubbles and siblings not only gets them squeaky clean, it’s a fantastic end of day play time to use up any remaining energy. What’s more, warm water and a bubble bath containing an essential oil relaxes and unwinds, getting them in the mood for bed.
Always make sure the bath is comfortably warm, about 37°-38°. Run the cold water before adding the hot and swish around well and test it with your elbow rather than your hand and make sure that it’s neither too hot nor too cold. If you want extra reassurance you can always use a bath thermometer.
Damp skin spreads more germs than dry skin so it’s really important to make sure your little one is thoroughly dry in every nook and cranny. Pay particular attention to hands, between their toes, and behind their ears.
After all that bubbly fun, it’s time to start winding down, and what better way than with snuggly cuddles in a big soft towel!
Moisturising young skin is a cornerstone of keeping it in good condition – especially if it’s sensitive. If your child suffers from skin sensitivity, moisturise 20 minutes before bedtime to let it soak in.
So they’re clean, relaxed, moisturised and ready for sleep. All that’s left is to tuck them into bed and read them a story, they’ll soon be drifting off!
