Usually when we think of the word pamper in the context of little ones, the mind goes straight to diapers. But we shouldn’t forget that a little bit of non-diaper pampering is important for caretakers and kiddos alike!
Here’s a guide for helping your child get cozy and relaxed at the end of a long day (and, fingers crossed, help bedtime go all the more smoothly so you can get some self-care time too).
Set the stage for relaxation with a candle (bonus: kiddos will love how “grownup” their bath time feels with a warm glow and the scent of this Minois orange blossom candle).
Draw a warm bubble bath (the more bubbles, the better!).
Add some toys to keep hands and minds engaged. Quut Toys makes some of our favorite bath toys and puzzles.
Cleanse with a gentle cleanser. We love this one from Minois that doubles as a body wash and shampoo.
After the bath
Dry off with a soft and cozy plush towel like the 100% cotton bunny hooded towel by Effiki.
Moisturize skin with a delicately scented lotion and treat your little on to a massage with a nourishing oil like this dry oil from Minois.
Brushing hair helps keep tangles at bay. Not so much hair yet? A soft brush like the Aristidis Hair Brush from Marie-Chantal feels great on skin can help stimulate the scalp.
Brush teeth with a toothbrush that makes brushing fun. We carry fun and easy-to-grip brushes for teethers, babies, and toddlers from Hamico.
Change into soft, breathable pajamas.
Deep, calming breaths help settle even the most energetic little one. Kids 8 years old and up can get some relaxation assistance with a few deep breaths of calming aromatherapy from Madison & Green.
Cuddle in a super-soft, luxe blanket like these starry alpaca throws from Paris West.
Read a familiar, favorite book together to close out the day.
Kisses, hugs, and sweet dreams! xoxo Danrie
