You don’t have to be a parent to know that parenting can be messy. Having seven kids, we know this all too well. Especially, boys. I find they tend to make bigger and more frequent messes than my girls ever did. They love playing outside in the dirt, and snow. They love digging up bugs and making little forts. It’s just something boys do, and I love it!
Kids need to be able to get messy, get dirty! They need to be able to play and not have to worry about the mess. Of course, if they make a mess they must clean it, but as parents, we are always prepared. JOHNSON’S® has us covered for just about every messy little kid adventure you can think of!
Babies, such as Hanna who is 18 months old today, tend to get into just about anything they can get their hands on. So, like the boys, she is continually making messes! How such a little girl can make such a mess, I’ll never know.
Sometimes a bath just isn’t possible. That’s why JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE™ baby washcloths were designed as a quick, convenient way to give your baby a gentle, all-over clean without the need for water or drying. Now you can have the soft cleansing power of a JOHNSON’S® bath without the tub, whenever, wherever your baby needs it.
JOHNSON’S® knows that being a parent isn’t always easy. But from clean cuddles to messy playtime, there’s one thing that should never be a concern: keeping baby’s skin clean and healthy-looking. Whether at home or on-the-go, JOHNSON’S® has you and baby covered.
Baby’s skin is different than adult skin (it’s about 30% thinner than your skin). It may look perfect, but it is very delicate, so it needs extra special care throughout the first years of life. We’ve always used JOHNSON’S® products on our babies and will keep some on hand for baby girl due in April too! I’ve used JOHNSON’S® since my first born, who is almost 15 years old, and I can say that not many products have stayed that long in our house!
Because it is more delicate, baby’s skin needs more protection from environmental changes and harsh cleansers. So, when caring for your little one, use mild and gentle cleansers and moisturizers that are developed primarily for babies like JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE™ baby wash and JOHNSON’S® head-to-toe baby lotion.
With so many kids, we don’t have to worry about the messes. Our kids help us clean up, and JOHNSON’S® has us covered for getting them clean when we need it most. Being gentle and mild, I love having it on hand for newborns and recommend putting JOHNSON’S® products on your registry if you are expecting!
Parenting isn’t easy, I’ll be the first one to say it has many challenges but bath time and clean up time isn’t something that has to be a struggle. I know many parents who find out they are expecting and tend to freak out over what is to come; trust me when I say that it isn’t that bad. My motto has always been: Have a plan, keep trusted products on hand and just go for it.
What are your must-haves for when things get messy with the kids?
