Bedtime is one of those times in my house that everything seems to be going on at once. Everyone is tired and we need our bedtime routine to be as simple and efficient as possible. That is why we rely on Dr. Brown’s to provide everything we need for the kids with products we can trust. Bedtime has become that much more special in our home now that Charli has arrived. I take this time to dedicate it to only the boys while Ryan bonds with Charli usually while watching a sitcom on the couch. Ha!
We do bath night every other night but for nights that aren’t bath night we start by washing our hands from the day with with the same soap we also use for bath time. Dr. Brown’s Baby Foaming Baby Wash is an easy pump foam dispenser that features all natural ingredients. It is made with natural essential oils and organic aloe vera, calendula and chamomile and is hypoallergenic, gluten, phthalate, sulfate, petroleum and paraben free!
One of the hardest things for me to get the boys to want to do on their own was brush their teeth. Their response was always “Mommy, you do it.” And out of exhaustion from the day and just wanting to crawl into bed, mommy usually ended up just doing it. Once we got the Dr. Brown’s Baby Infant-to-toddler Toothbrush the boys instantly got the hang of it. The easy to hold handle makes it easier for them to move around their mouth and grip the toothbrush. The soft bristles do not hurt their teeth and they love the cute little elephant ears which actually help with keeping the tooth brush from touching surfaces if it falls over! We also love the Dr. Brown’s Natural Toothpaste because the boys say it “tastes like apples,” since it has both apple and pear flavors in the non-fluoride paste!
We finish our bedtime routine with the Dr. Brown’s Baby Lotion and Baby Balm. We use both of these products but typically use the balm when we need lots of extra moisture after a day on the beach or in the winter time. I kind of let the boys pick where all they feel like they need lotion but encourage their hands, face, ears and neck! Not to mention it smells really good due to it is made with natural essential oils and contains coconut oil, organic linden, calendula and chamomile which I feel like relaxes them for a good nights sleep!!
