Welcome to day five of Parker’s First Birthday Bash here on 5 Vinez Monkeys!
One of the best things about having a baby is bath time. Well, usually. Around here, Parker hates baths. Truth be told, he despises them. But after his bath, it’s a completely different story. That’s our favorite time of day. After he’s pulled from the water, we snuggle for a few moments. Then, on goes the diaper, and he gets a nice, refreshing rubdown with lotion. I am super picky about the types of lotion I put on baby’s sweet skin. That’s why when I find a company like Ginger’s Garden, I can stand behind it. Their baby lotion does not contain color, parabens, fragrance, sulphates or propylene glycol. It’s perfect for even the most sensitive skin. And it smells fantastic. It rubs on smoothly, and absorbs quickly. It’s the perfect ending to bath time in our house. It’s also great for grown-ups!
Another great product that Ginger’s Garden offers is their homemade baby soap. Because Parker doesn’t like bath time, I have to get him clean FAST. That means I need something that’s easy to rinse off. Their baby soap is made with the gentlest oils available. Perfect for sensitive skin. Handcrafted with imported olive oil, pure coconut, mango butter and natural Soy oil. And there are no colors added. And I have to mention the scent of their lotion – it is simply divine. As soon as you open the package from Ginger’s Garden, it’s the first thing you smell. When it goes on baby, though, it’s not too strong or overwhelming. It’s just the right amount.
