Potions & Lotions for Kids


Taking a bath with your baby is an adorable, precious, lovely thing that’s not to be missed! It’s seriously one of the greatest joys and is relaxing for mama and baby. A rubdown in the sink, while cute, is not as much fun! Seriously, there’s no need for those plastic baby tubs.. Anyways! In my book, The Kind Mama, I referenced some kind potions and lotions so below are Bear and I’s favorites! This is for bath time and beyond, I added some balms we dig and products found in our medicine cabinet, check them out:
Shampoo & Body Wash
Babo Botanicals  Moisturizing Baby Shampoo and Wash. We love this!
Mini Organics  Gentle Baby Wash
Mama Rose’s Naturals La La Body Wash & Shampoo
Burts Bees  Shampoo & Wash
Gabriel  Clean Kids Naturally Shampoo
California Baby  Calming Shampoo and Body Wash
Bubble Bath
I haven’t come across a great bubble bath product, to make these naturals ones work you have to put so much  in.

We are not huge on hand sanitizer, particularly conventional sanitizers are super-gnarly. However, from time to time when your on the road kind hand sanitizers can be useful. Below are alternatives we enjoy, but if you can make your own, go for it (p. 269 in The Kind Mama) 🙂
