Bubble Baths for Toddlers with Sensitive Skin

This is a collaborative post with Infacare Baby

Emma has had sensitive skin ever since she was born – it started when she was just weeks old and the baby acne phase didn’t disappear for months. It’s always been a worry for me, particularly if the blemishes might scar her skin. For bathtime, we would just use water until recently when she has started requesting bubble bath. Let’s face it that’s the fun part, so I’ve been on the look out for bubble bath that is delicate enough on her sensitive skin.

I’m always intrigued as to what products other parents are using so I’ve asked for a few bloggers for their recommendations:

Victoria from Lylia Rose loves using Child’s Farm, which I often hear recommended. I love how fruity their bathtime products and I’d love to try one out.

Kelly from Mimi, Rose and Me loves using Johnson’s Bathtime Routine; I’ve heard a lot about their top-to-toe routine, although I’ve never used Johnson’s products so far.

I love hearing about products I’ve not yet tried and Sophia from Tattoed Tea Lady has introduced us to Mustela and Weleda. Sophia says “We’ve used these brands since birth and find them effective for what we need whilst being gentle on W’s skin; she has mild eczema so using gentle products is really paramount for us”.

Next on our list is the Kokoso Body Wash as recommended by Oh So Mummy and Hannah from Hi Baby Blog, and also Skinfix as recommended by Lisa from Mummascribbles and Laura from Life With Baby Kicks.

I’m a big fan of the old favourites that just work, as Deborah from Hello Deborah recommends Junior Oilatum, with Laura from Five Little Doves giving a thumbs up to Aveeno Baby Bath, “it works wonders on Harry’s eczema and I even use it in my bath as it’s so gentle on the skin”. One I hadn’t thought of was the Burts Bees Bath Wash, which Amy from Mama Mighalls loves.

I’ve been hearing a lot about Good Bubble and wondered how it would fare with sensitive skin. Kelly from Bringing Up Georgia loves it as it is “perfect for sensitive skin, smells gorgeous AND it’s a lot cheaper than alternatives”. Sounds like it would be well worth a try!

In our bathroom, we have been trying Infacare Night-Time Bubble Bath. This night-time bubble bath smells of lavender and has been very gentle. In the past, after a bubble bath the irritation to Emma’s skin is visible right away but the one is different. We’ve also got a couple of bottles of bubble bath to giveaway and would love you to enter below!

    I still have to be very careful of what I put in my youngests bath and shes 9 now but doesn’t take much to send her skin nuts. I’m going to look at some of these recommendations as we love Johnsons baby but we could do with some new fragrances at bathtime . Oddly , and expensively, the girl can tolerate Lush bath bombs!!! How convenient!!

    Some great options here! Baby Lighty occasionally suffers from eczema, so I tend to alternate a sensitive bubble bath one night with a bath oil prescribed by the doctor the next night!

    I’ve always been conscious of what Alfie uses because I have sensitive skin but we love Tesco’s own night time bath which is lovely and gentle.

    My daughter has sensitive skin and I find that making sure that she is well hydrated by drinking lots of water really helps her skin.

    Being subjected to too-warm water – and too much of it – can result in dry, itchy skin for baby. Limit bath time to three times a week, max. Keep the bathing time short – between three and five minutes, – and be sure the water is lukewarm, not too hot.

    It’s important to have warm / tepid water as hot water can irritate the skin even further, and ensure you use only natural products.
