We we're asked a while back to attend a PR event with Johnsons but sadly with pre school commitments and my fear of travelling into London with 2 children I had to decline. However the lovely people at Johnsons kindly sent me some products so I could still be involved in their #SoMuchMore campaign.
#SoMuchMore is all about highlighting the important of bathtime with our little ones, we all have different routines bath time wise but for most it's a chance to spend real quality one on one time with the little and for the littles to experience the wonderful sensations of abs throne - the touch, smells and sounds we take for granted but for them are so so much more
For us Bathtime is an integral part of our bedtime routine, we started this at about 3 months with D and now F has got involved at 5 months. After tea we head upstairs and have a bath, the girls go in together now. Then it's book, milk for the baby and bed.
The most important thing about bathtime in our house is that it's Daddy time, Mr R arrives home just as the girls get in the bath so this is their special one on one time with him. Yes it's a chance to get clean after the typical shannegans of a messy toddler and weaning baby but it's also about fun, time away from TV, phones, laptops and a chance for everyone to wind down and relax before bed.
Johnsons have recently launched their so much more campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of bath time activities and to highlight how important this special time of day can be to a babies development. Here's some of their key findings.
- 9 out of 10 parents say that bath time is more than just getting their child clean
- 64% of parents say that for them Bath time is a tech free time
- 42% of parents believe bath time is important to their child's brain development however only 23% understand the important of baby massage for Brain development
If you check out their website you can get the full picture as well as tips on how to make the most of bath time
We love bathtime in our house, it's noisy, splashy and often the only time of the day we are all in the same place. So to also find out our children are benefitting both developmentally and emotionally during this time just makes it all the more special.
Looks like another excuse to share some delicious baby bath time shots ;)
