Parenting Can Be Messy; Be Prepared With JOHNSON’S®

Posted on in Babies/ Products/ Sponsored

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with JOHNSON’S®. As always, opinions are my own.

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?

    Wipes are always key. They can clean up hands, faces and spills. Plus they are easy to pack

    I love to see kids playing outside and getting dirty. I have fond memories of playing outside and coming filthy and tired. Johnson and Johnson has always made great products.

    I don’t have kids but my little furbaby definitely gets into a lot of messes! I’ve always loved Johnson’s products. Their products are get for beauty hacks.

    When my girls were babies, we always used Johnson’s lavender wash. I loved the smell.

    First, the photos are so sweet. Second, I think Johnson products were in my house when I was a baby! I love the smell and all the wonderful goodness that the Johnson products do for our skin. I love using it myself.

    It is a messy job no doubt! Even when you think you have everything together and set, the kids always throw a curve ball out there! Wipes, paper towels and hand sanitizer!

    Can you believe I still use Johnson’s for myself??? I really do. I remove my makeup with baby wash and use the lotion anytime I have it on hand. Love Johnson’s.

    This is so true! I love Johnson products and I don’t have kids but still use them to this day!

    Johnson’s is our very favorite! My daughters have a six year age gap and I love that I used the same bath products for both of them. At two years old, I still soak up that sweet smell of my “baby” every time she gets out of the bath.

    This is by far our most favorite brand of washes. I don’t know what I would do without it for all of my kids and how messy they get.

    We used this product when my kids were infants. It is good stuff!
