Keep Nighttime Calm with Mum & You’s Baby Bath Wash
Mum & You welcome summer sun with a warm embrace. The days are brighter, warmer – and as parents, a little wilder. And, with the change in weather, we adjust our little one’s skincare routine accordingly.
The summer months are a great time for getting baby into a calm bedtime routine when the lighter evenings can often make it more challenging for little ones to get to sleep. A lukewarm bath and a massage with Mum & You Mums Touch Massage Oil for Sleepy Nights is a welcome addition to your night-time routine, allowing baby to relax for a fuss-free wind down and more comfortable night’s sleep.
Baby’s delicate skin is often easily irritated in summer with increased sweating, air conditioning and humid nights. The natural sunflower, jojoba and camomile oils in Mum & You Mums Touch Massage Oil for Calm Days offers gentle nourishment for baby’s summer skin, leaving it soft and supple. Remember to keep baby well hydrated and out of the sun to ensure comfort and safety during the longer days.
At the end of a long summer’s day, Mum & You’s New Baby Safe & Sound Hair & Body Wash is a gentle bath-time choice to keep little ones clean and comfortable, ready for another day of summer fun. The thoughtful pump dispenser allows one-handed use for extra safety and ease at bath time, whilst the product is specially formulated to be tear-free and dermatologically tested to be suitable for the most sensitive skin, including newborns.
