- As a busy mom, trusting my baby products is one less thing I have to decide on. When I am running low, I can always trust that my 24-hour Walgreens is there stocked with my favorite baby needs. JOHNSON’S® products have been around for close to 100 years but continue to evolve to ensure they stay true to the safest ingredients we trust. Products are dye free, sulfate free, and worry free, so I just know that they will always be a part of our growing family to keep my boys clean no matter what they get in to. 😉 From the first bath at the hospital to his first bath at home, JOHNSON’S® make baby products I will always turn to. JOHNSON’S® is the brand I trust and is now more gentle than ever.
Baby + Toddler Nighttime Routine Tutorial
6:30PM Family Dinner – We have been making it more of a habit to all sit down at the table for a more formal dinner. Now I am not saying we dress up or eat on fancy plates but I mean formal in the since that we have the table set, we all sit together, put away all distractions like phones and TV, take turns each night blessing the food and we all eat the same thing. We have seen a HUGE improvement with Ryker eating when we do dinner time this way. I suggest if you have a picky eater to try it! I think that when he sees that he is eating the same thing as Mom + Dad, Ry is more likely to finish everything too!
6:45PM Play Time – When it isn’t 1000 degrees outside (yes I meant to put 3 zeros – hello ARIZONA!) we love to go on a family walk, head to the park, grab some ice cream, or play games outside. During the hotter months we turn up the tunes for a dance session, play matching games, color, or make s’mores. We spend a good 45 minutes to an hour just getting in some good old family time!
7:30PM Bath Time – We tried washing the boys at the same time in the same bathroom and for now that’s a no go! haha We have a Puj tub for sweet Riggins and Ryker immediately started getting fussy that he couldn’t use it. We tried explaining how he didn’t fit but he is one stubborn kid. Now we take turns! One of us does Ry’s bath with all the fun toys and lots of splashing while the other take Riggs into our bathroom for a much more relaxed sink bath. We both use our JOHNSON’S® Head-To-Toe Wash for Riggs newborn skin and JOHNSON’S® Shea & Cocoa Butter Wash for Ry with some Baby Bedtime to help calm the craziness in the bath. I love the pump top on the bottles for ease of use. We brush teeth, comb hair and get the boys all snuggled up for story time. Cam is great about brushing Ry’s teeth and makes it a game so Ryker actually asks to do it now! Correction – he asks for DAD to do it – Mom apparently does it wrong 😉
7:45PM Story Time – Cam + I use to take turns with Ryker but now we all while in his room for story time. He still likes a little milk before bed and Riggs is ultra cuddly. We let Ry pick 1 or 2 books to read together.
8:00-8:30PM Lights Out – We still use a sound machine for Ry. His stays on throughout the whole night and he has this fun star projector that turns off after 10 minutes. He is pretty great about going to bed as long as he has his blanket and ‘night night’. He always tells me “goodnight, I wuv you soooo much” and with that it’s sweet dreams! Riggs still sleeps in our room and I usually nurse him right after Ry is asleep. He eats every 2-3 hours during the day. He is a great sleeper as well and he smells so yummy after his bath that I would hold him all night… but Mama also needs her sleep too!
Walgreens is a trusted retailer and JOHNSON’S® is a trusted brand in our family. There will always be moments as a parent when you need to be able to trust others to help you. It takes a village after all. I am slowly learning to let others help me even if I don’t think I need it and especially when someone offers and I really do. There is strength in allowing others to be there in your time of need. And sometimes those times of need come when you are rushing home to wash a cute little baby after a tremendous blowout and you relize half way home that you are out of baby wash. There is just no way I would be running into a store carrying a naked baby and a wild toddler. I can trust, however, that JOHNSON’S® will be stocked at my trusted Walgreens and I can swing through the drive-through. Talk about a lifesaver! I truly believe that Walgreens and JOHNSON’S® care about my family and continue to work to provide just what we need.
