When I was younger, there were a few things that were always around my home. Most of them, I never really appreciated at the time but they make you feel that you’re ‘home’. One of those things that was always in my sister and my bathroom as children was a small bar of Dove soap. It had it’s own little spot in our tub that we used to love to use to stay clean after a long day of playing outside, attending our after school activities or just needing to unwind. It always smelled clean, refreshing and comforting.
Now, at the age of 31 with two children of my own, I use Dove for my kids to enjoy just like their Mom. I’ve used a variety of different brands on my kids, most of time not realizing that what I used really does affect their skin, especially my sweet youngest Landon. He has super sensitive skin so I try to be as selective as possible.
I was really excited to hear that Dove was launching a baby range- Baby Dove. These range of products were developed specifically wit little ones in mind, except it’s by a brand with 60 years of experience when it comes to moisture, gentleness and mildness body care.
Due to Landon’s super dry skin, I loved that Baby Dove has a sensitive skin line that helps put nourishment where he needs it the most. I always apply a deep rich lather after bath time to lock in the moisture before putting his pajamas on. He truly sleeps like a baby plus he smells so darn delicious! The Rich Moisture has a light fragrance to it but it’s such a light clean smell that you associate it immediately with the brand. I actually enjoy using it a bit myself and gentle rub it into my skin. It’s not overpowering but rather comforting – as if you were snuggling and smelling your sweet babies when they were first born. I mean, who truly doesn’t love that rich intoxicating smell?
I also love that there are a variety of products, for almost every single skincare needed!
If you prefer the Baby Dove Rich Moisture Baby Bar and Baby Dove Rich Moisture Shampoo, then by all means use that combination! If you’re traveling the Baby Dove Rich Moisture Head to Toe Wash is easy to pack as it can be used on all baby cleansing needs including their scalp ( which is perfect for when I need just one item to watch Landon instead of packing 3 small things for him while we travel )!
One of my favorite things to do as as a parent during bath time is give each kid a loving baby massage before bed. I truly find it helps to calm both of them down and gives both Zach and I time as parents to bond with both kids a bit while we lotion them up. Zach will usually take Lily and I’ll take Landon and we just talk to them about their day while applying the lotion to keep their skin soft. Zach loves this one on one time with his daughter. They have such a special bond together and he loves interacting, laughing and coming up with some hilarious stories while he gets her ready for bed.
Of course with Landon, he can’t really talk back yet being only 8 months old but I know he loves the feel and smell of the lotion because his smile could not be bigger! I know looking back on these moments in a few years will be priceless because it’s so short lived. My babies will soon become toddlers, teenagers and then adults! It goes too fast or as everyone says, that you blink and they are grown!
I might not get everything right as a Mom and I’m learning every day on how to be the best parent I can be. I’m so thankful to have such a caring husband who also helps in so many ways, especially when it comes to this difficult job. I know they’ll be days I want to do a do over but there are also moments that I wouldn’t trade for the world- especially when it’s following my heart. Of course, an always easy decision for my children’s skincare is having the confidence to use products like Baby Dove. After all, don’t Mom’s always know best?
