When I was pregnant with my first set of twins, I worried about everything.
How would I feed two at once? How would I cope when one ran one way and one ran the other? What would I do at bath time?
Well I have to say I was lucky that most of the time I had help from either my mum or Hubby
Now I have two sets and bath time can be a bit of a chore.
Again most of the time I have help but I thought I would share with you how I get through Bath night when I’m running solo.
In our house bath time starts around 6pm,
I start by making sure the room temperature is good – Somewhere around 21o
Take the babies upstairs one at a time and put them in their cot in their own room
Run the main bath.
While the main bath is running I fill the babies bath and get things ready for afterwards
- Bedtime Book
- Wash Mitt
- Nail scissors
- Baby Massage oil
Both baths are filled. Little Miss M gets into the bath first and while she is playing and having a wash I bath Little Miss J.
At the moment I’m using Good Bubble, super bubbly bubble bath the smell is amazing and it so kind on delicate skin.
The bath mitt is from a gift set containing the bubble bath and bath mitt.
Little miss J loves it, as I use it like a puppet before I wash her with it.
Once Little Miss J is done I dry her, put her a clean nappy on and dress her in her vest. Then wrap her in a blanket and put her back down in the cot while I bath Little Mr M,
Little Mr M is not a fan of bath time, however using the mitt as a puppet has made him smile a little more.
Once both babies are bathed and in vests I put them in their cot in my room while I wash Little Miss Ms hair. Once this is done I shout little Mr J, who is in his room playing to come and have his bath. I don’t know what it is about boys in this house but Mr J is not thrilled its bath time either.
Miss M then gets dry with a little help from me and goes off to read in her room.
While Mr J is having his bath I go into my room and give the babies a quick massage using the Good Buble organic coconut oil, Its smells delicious (good enough to eat) I do this one at a time in laying in my bed. Then I dress them into their sleepsuits.
Once I’ve done this I go and get Mr J’s hair washed.
For the big kid’s hair, I’m using Good Bubble Shampoo and conditioner again the smell is amazing. It leaves their hair really soft too!
When everyone is bathed We read the big kids’ school books in my bed while I feed the babies, either one at a time or I prop Little Miss J on a pillow and feed together.
When feeding is over The big kids go to bed and I put the babies in their sleeping bags and into the cot while I go off and tidy up after the bath time carnage.
The products featured were gifted to me to feature in this post.
I have enjoyed using them over the past week or so the fragrance of the products smells so fresh and natural.
I’ve particularly liked using the coconut oil not just for baby massage but also I heard it was good for cradle cap and dry skin.
Little Miss J has cradle cap in her hair and also above her eyebrows although I think its too early to tell whether its working or not in her hair the bits around her eyebrows have definitely calmed down.
Its also helped clear up Little Mr M’s dry feet.
I will definitely be looking out for this brand again
Good Bubble featured on dragons den can be purchased from Sainsbury’s stores nationwide.
