My Favorite Routine With Sebastian
This post was sponsored by Johnson’s®.
Last week, I shared a few updates regarding Sebastian. One of the most commonly asked questions was regarding his schedule. Every mom knows what a difference an established routine can make. So today, I’m going to share a little more about our daily routine with him, especially now that winter has arrived. There are a few more things we have added due to the change of season, specifically with his skincare. With the temperatures dropping and thermostats going up we know we need to take extra special care of his delicate skin with the help of our partner Johnson’s®.
What we found out is that with Sebastian’s fair skin, he’s very prone to dry skin. Matt and I both make sure Sebastian’s skin is hydrated. Now more than ever with the winter’s drying effects upon us.
Some days it’s easier than others to moisturize him, but we try and make it fun for him. Most days he gets out of the bath and he wants to run around the house while we chase him. We’re starting to teach him that he needs to put lotion on as soon as he gets out of the bath. Keeping his skin hydrated starts with the new Johnson’s® CottonTouch™ Newborn Wash & Shampoo and moisturizing with Johnson’s® CottonTouch™ Newborn Face & Body Lotion after the bath ensures his skin stays hydrated. We even let him put some lotion on us so he can play big helper. His little laugh gets me every time.
The CottonTouch™ Wash lathers up quickly to keep up with Sebastian’s on the go attitude. It rinses off easily without leaving behind residue that can dry out your skin. When we follow it up with the CottonTouch™ Lotion we know we’re giving Sebastian’s skin the moisture it needs. It’s a water-based formula made with real cotton. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly so Sebastian can get back to doing what he does best, being a kid.
Keep It Simple
We spent a lot of time with the Johnson’s® team learning about what has gone into their new products, what has been removed and the best ways to care for Sebastian’s skin. Even the packages got a makeover. They’re fun and colorful. Johnson’s® has committed itself to raise the bar and doing what’s best for your baby. They’ve reduced the number of ingredients in their washes, lotions, and haircare products by more than 50%.
Less is more and when you know everything about the products you are using for your kids. It gives you peace of mind. Plus, bath time has always been one of our favorite times with him. Knowing that we are able to keep his skin hydrated the right way gives us one less thing to worry about as parents. It truly has become a routine for us whether we are putting him down for a nap or getting him ready for bed.
This routine is one of my favorites because it’s just us, no distractions. Johnson’s® has been with us since we brought Sebastian home from the hospital. It’s a brand we’ve trusted during our bathtime ritual. These kinds of memories are filled with little giggles and smiles and at the end of the day are precious to any parent.
What’s your favorite routine with your little one?
