'5...4...3...2...1, Right, Please get out of the bath NOW, I am not asking again'. You would think it would be a battle to get small people into the bath but no, in our house we have to battle them to get out! The Little ones love the bath especially the younger two, Little 3 always asks 'Avin a bath Mummy?' every night as we are getting down from the tea table and more often than not the answer is 'Yes'.
If I happen to say 'No' I am met with a little pouty lip and a cute little 'Oooooh' as he looks at me with that cheeky glint in his eye pleading for a splash about in the tub. I do admit I often give in at this point, after all potty training toddlers are generally in need of a deep clean at least once a day (often more), and 5 minutes in the bath isn't going to delay bedtime by much.
The latest thing with Little 3 is blowing bubbles, I found a stash of bubble mixture in the cupboard recently and have been letting him play with it in the bath, this means it does not make him (or the carpet) sticky and it distracts him from drinking the bath water too!
He loves to pop and try to catch bubbles as we blow them but he also likes to have a go at blowing them himself and is getting quite good at coordinating getting the wand back in the bottle. There is always a challenge between the Little Ones to see who can blow the biggest bubble and who can get the most bubbles to stick on their wet arm- bath time is never boring in our house!
The Little Ones spend quite a lot of time in the bath, often playing happily together until the water goes cold. Little 1 has eczema and gets very itchy skin so I have to be careful with what products we use.
We have recently been testing out a range of natural bath and hair care products for children and they have been a lovely change to our usual bathtime products. 'Good Bubble' is packed with nurturing superfruit extracts; Dragon Fruit, packed with moisturising and antioxidant properties and Cloudberry, bursting with vitamins to soothe.
I have to say the first thing we noticed about these products was the scent, these products smell absolutely yummy even the girls commented on how nice they were, the fruity smell was lovely. All Good Bubble products are free from artificial colours, sulfates, parabens, phthalates and PEG which for Little 1 and myself with eczema is good news. After using the 'Bish Bash Bosh! Hair and Body Wash* for a few bath times I noticed that my hands were not nearly as dry as normal from helping Little 3 to get washed as they had been with their previous sensitive skin bubble bath, which can only be a good thing.
We really loved the 'Clean as a Bean' Cloudberry Shampoo* and the 'Smoothly Softly' Cloudberry Conditioner* too, we usually use a 2 in 1 with the girls as washing and rinsing once is generally enough trauma for me but they really liked having a separate shampoo and conditioner. Both products were really fruity and didn't hurt their eyes at all when it inevitably got in. The conditioner left the girls hair really smooth and I noticed a difference brushing it on the first day after using it.
Good Bubble is now available in Sainsburys as well as at Ocado.com, hollandandbarrett.com, Amazon* and www.goodbubble.co.uk.
