Johnson's Bedtime Bath
Advantages: Nice smell and bubbles
Disadvantages: No effect on my baby's sleep and possible cause of dry skin
Once you have a baby you will quickly come to understand why sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture. Babies' body clocks do not understand the difference between night and day so it is a good idea to try to establish a bedtime routine so they understand night better. Our routine is bath, bottle, book and bed. When my son was a newborn we just used warm water but has he has grown we have started to try some baby bath products.
My son does not sleep particularily well so when I saw Johnsons had a bedtime version of their baby bath I thought I would try it. Only a small amount is required as gives quite a lot of bubbles which my son really enjoyed. The smell is very pleasant and I can smell the lavender. Johnsons say this is part of the Naturalcalm special formula. It also forms part of the NoMoreTears range so should be mild enough for babies.
It comes in a lavender shade bottle with a flip up lid. The liquid is not too runny so it is fairly easy to pour a small amount into the bath but giving the bottle a gentle squeeze. My bottle is 500 ml and cost just under £4 but there is also a 300 ml bottle available and if you are going to try this product I suggest you start with the smaller bottle first even if it works out more expensive per ml.
Did my son sleep better? Well sad to say it didn't seem to have any effect than a plain water bath. I have tried it myself and it does help me relax. I would have continued to use it but my son developed dry skin which may not have been due to this product but I decided to stop using it on him and his dry skin cleared up. As a result I use it myself for a nice relaxing bubble bath but this isnt the use I intended. I may try it again when he is a bit older to see if it has any effect on his skin as the manufacturers do state it is hypoallergenic and tested by dermatologists. I did notice that the regular Johnsons states it is ph neutral but don't see a similar claim on the bedtime version. I am writing to the manufacturers and if they reply will update thus review then.
I would suggest that this product may be worth a try to help your baby sleep if you are desperate but it my case I am unlikely to be buying it again.
Summary: If desperate for some sleep worth a try but get the small bottle first
