When you have a baby with sensitive skin, bath time can be a challenge. But the good news is, it doesn’t have to be!

As new parents, my husband and I learned early that our daughter had extremely sensitive skin. She could only wear and use a certain type of diapers/wipes or she would get almost a chemical burn type rash. It broke my heart when this happened and I wanted to do anything in my power to ensure her sensitive skin was well taken care of. When we discovered how sensitive our daughter’s skin was, we naturally looked into the bath products we were using for her. Luckily, we’ve been using JOHNSON’S® since day one! 

You can find JOHNSON’S® Baby products at your local Target! We love shopping for all of our families needs at Target. I can always find what I need at Target and normally come home with items I didn’t even know I needed! Hover over the above image to shop for JOHNSON’S® Baby products.

Find Bath Time Products That Fit Your Child’s Needs

When establishing a bath time routine, the most important thing to do is find products that are able to clean and nourish your babies sensitive skin.

As a new Mom, I chose JOHNSON’S®because it was a well-trusted brand for babies that was known to be gentle on little one’s skin. I had no idea at the time that this was one of the best decisions I could have made for my daughters skincare. 

JOHNSON’S®includes no parabens, no phthalates and it’s hypoallergenic. JOHNSON’S® just improved an already great product by making their products even more gentle than ever. Their formula now includes 50% fewer ingredients, no dyes or sulfates and it more naturally derived than ever.  JOHNSON’S® already high standards, just got higher.

We use JOHNSON’S® Moisture Bedtime Wash.  This wash is formulated to moisturize babies skin while also helping them sleep better. Every Mom knows, when your baby sleeps well – you sleep better. This another reason I always count on JOHNSON’S®.

Madison has such thick and long hair for her age, she needs a shampoo and conditioner to avoid tangles and knots. We use JOHNSON’S® No More Tangles 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner to wash her hair and leave it tangle free.

Lotion UP

After her bath, Madison knows we brush her teeth and use JOHNSON’S® Vanilla and Oat Lotion. Madison has extremely sensitive skin. As a baby she could only use certain diapers, the gentlest wipes and JOHNSON’S® products. She even had eczema spots until recently.JOHNSON’S®Vanilla and Oat Lotion leaves her skin nourished, calm and happy. 

With the cooler months comes dryer skin. It’s so important to remember to put lotion on our little ones skin to help keep them comfortable.

Create a Consistent Routine

I’m a strong believer that little ones thrive off of a routine. Madison has always been on a schedule and we try our best to stick to it. Creating a bedtime routine that works for your family and your little one depends on consistency. Madison has come to expect consistency and thrives with it. 

After bath time, we put Madison’s pajamas on and let her pick out a few books for us to read. We read books together, sing a few songs and say goodnight. Even our yellow lab likes to join us to say goodnight to Madison!

A calming bedtime routine will help set everyone up for a calm night.

    J&J makes me nostalgic for my own childhood, isn’t it amazing when a brand has such longevity? They’re certainly a staple in my home for my own little ones as well!

    Love this for my nieces and nephews! Bath time is always so fun and cute for the little ones, and making their skin feel better in the bargain is awesome.
