Bath time should be a calm and peaceful occasion. It's precious time spent with your baby, often when winding down for bed. But if you're not prepared, it can be more stressful than it needs to be. Having the right bath time accessories is important if you want to treasure the time bonding with your baby. However you choose to bathe your baby, it's useful to have some essentials that will make the whole task easier and gentler.
Whether you are a new parent preparing for the arrival of your baby, someone looking for a gift, or a parent who wants to elevate bath time, check out these baby bath time essentials.
During the Bath: Hair and Body Wash
When you're looking for baby bath time accessories, one of the most important choices is the soaps and shampoos you use. You want something that will be gentle on your baby's delicate skin. It can be especially tricky to find the right products if you have a baby with sensitive or dry skin. Fortunately, there are plenty of gentle options formulated just for little ones.
We recommend al.ive baby hair and body wash for your baby. Specially formulated with pear extract, jojoba oil, and calendula, it's designed to soothe and cleanse your baby's skin. Its completely natural fragrance is slightly sweet, and both you and your baby are sure to love it. The bottles are recyclable, and we also sell refills so you can fill them up again.
During the Bath: Gentle Washing Tools
The right cleansing products are a good start, but it can also be helpful to have some additional tools for bath time. Wash cloths are an obvious option, providing you with a gentle way to clean your baby's skin all over. Our high-quality wash cloths are a super soft and luxurious blend of cotton and bamboo and come in a range of calming colours.
Sponges are also a great choice for bath time. We stock al.ive sponges made from natural Konjac root. Not only are they super soft and delicate on the skin, but they're also really cute with their little starfish shapes. They're biodegradable too, and can be composted or disposed of in your household recycling.
Another tool you might find useful is a shampoo brush from Haakaa. This silicone brush is made from soft silicone and is gentle on both skin and hair.
After the Bath: A Soft Baby Towel
Bath time might be over, but it doesn't mean the bath time routine is. Once your baby is out of the bath, there are some baby bath time must-haves for you and your little one.
Start with a soft hooded towel to wrap your baby in after the bath. Drying properly is important to help prevent dry skin and other problems. Our hooded towels are hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and soft on your baby's skin. Plus, they come in our classic Kiin colours. They're generously sized and feature a hood, so you can make sure your baby is cosy, warm, and dry after their bath.
After the Bath: Baby Lotions and Creams
Another essential for your post-bath routine should be moisturising products to help prevent dry skin. As well as helping to keep your baby's skin healthy, these products are ideal for giving a little baby massage after bath time. If you're getting ready for bed, it's the perfect way to help your baby relax.
There are various options for baby products to use after bath time. Our products from Willow By The Sea offer some excellent choices, including their baby oil. With ingredients such as sunflower oil, coconut oil, pumpkin seed oil, and avocado oil, it's full of antioxidants and rich in vitamin E to nourish your baby's skin. Al.ive Body Lotion is another option that's great for soothing and moisturising skin after a bath.
Before you put that nappy on, make sure your baby's bottom is as smooth as…well, a baby's bottom. Willow By The Sea Bottom Balm is made with organic beeswax and cocoa butter to help form a protective barrier on your baby's delicate skin. Nappy cream from al.ive helps to keep skin healthy and prevent problems like nappy rash or irritation, with no synthetic fragrances in this gentle cream.
Get ready for baby's bed time with all of the bath time essentials you could need. Bath time will be enjoyable for both of you when you have these must-have accessories for both during and after bath time.
