Johnson's Bedtime Bath
Advantages: Smells great and really helps with sleep
Disadvantages: Nothing at all
I have been using this product since i had my first baby back in 2006, to be honest i never had any problems with my son sleeping so it was never brought to help him sleep however I am very loyal to the Johnson's line and i personally think they are the best for my children.
My daughter however was a very different story, she refused to sleep at all so this was something we brought to see if it would help and i truely think it did help.
~~~~ What is Johnsons bedtime bath? ~~~~
Johnson'd bedtime bath is a gentle cleanser to help you baby sleep better. When put into warm water it releases a mixture of calming aromas to aid sleep. Just like other johnson's products, this again is NO MORE TEARS formula so you know that your child will be fine if any does accidenly get into their eyes. It is also formulated with the naturalcalm essence so it gives parents peace of mind.
~~~~ Where to buy ~~~~
You can buy this from pretty much anywhere, at your local superstores, chemists and well stocked stores but they also range in price. We have noticed that it is on offer alot so it would be hard to miss. At regular price we have noticed it anywhere between £1.50 and £2.75 and although it does last a very long time it is still steep in price, especially when you can pick it up whilst on offer for £1.00.
~~~~ Packaging ~~~~
Firstly it comes in a lilac plastic bottle with a screw lid, which also has a pop off lid attached to make pouring easier to control. The fact that you can screw the lid off is great because once you think it is all gone, you can pour a little water into the bottle and it will be enough for another bath. My children also enjoy playing with the clean empty bottles in the bath too and make squirty guns out of them.
On the front of the bottle there is the Johnson's name in pale blue and the rest of the information in purple making it easy to read.
The back of the bottle tells you the ingredience which areWater, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Polysorbate 20, PEG-150 Distearate, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide. So please be sure to check the ingredience to make sure your child is not allergic to any of the items as one of my friends found out the hard way and had a very rough nights sleep with her baby.
The bottle comes in 3 different sizes however i tend to use the medium bottle as it tends to be the one that is on offer the most, and the one i can save the most money on.
~~~~ My thoughts ~~~~
To be honest i love this product. It does tell you to use in a 3 step nightly routine however i have used this without the lotion on a couple of occations that i have ran out and i do not see any difference in the sleep pattern, just the smoothness in my baby's skin.
It is very easy to use, i tend to pour a small amount into the bath water to make a small amount of bubbles and then when it is time to wash the children i pour a small amount, roughly the size of a 50pence coin onto a sponge and it goes a long way.
It doesnt smell that different to the normal Johnson's baby bath however i think you can faintly pick up the scent of lavender, although it is not stated in the ingredience. I dont know if that is just my personal opinion or if the lavender is in the natural calm formula.
It makes my baby's skin very soft after they have been in the bath and the scent lingers on our childrens skin so they always smell clean and fresh.
I would recommend this to every parent, even if you do not have any issues with your children sleeping at night because it is a lovely product. My children love it and as soon as i am running low i have to buy some more as i refuse to use anything else now.
Summary: Great for everyone
