Bathtime Essentials We Love
We’re all about making the hard bits of parenting a bit less stressy and a lot more fun. One of the non-negotiable parenting tasks is cleaning your gremlin aka ‘bathtime’. Generally, it can go one of two ways: a lovely calming experience filled with smiles and declarations of love. OR? A messy, splashy, screamy, draining experience that zaps the loving feels right outta you. Hmpf.
Today, we want to share some fantastic bathtime essentials we love in the hope you go from ‘blah’ to ‘ahh’ come bathtime.
Bubbles & Creams
A bath without bubbles is like a morning without caffeine. No good. Choosing the right bubbles & creams can be a tall order. Fear not, we’ve scoured the land and found the ultimate packs to make bathtime smell very good while keeping your bub’s skin squishy and kissable.

Their products have been created by parents, for parents and are truly the standout when it comes to protecting the biome of our little ones skin. Magnifique!
