Bath time made better with Mustela Dermo-Cleansing

Bath time is one of my favourite parts of the day.

However, before Hannah was born, I really worried about bath time. Since infants can drown in less than two inches of water, it seemed to me like it would be the scariest part of parenting.

Hours after she was born she cried the entire time when the nurse gave her very first bath (Chris caught it all on video, I was still loopy from all the drugs).

The first time we bathed her at home, we did so in the kitchen sink - very anxiously. We kept asking each other questions. I had read the bathing chapter in the Mother of All Baby Books by Ann Douglas multiple times. But for all our preparations and nervousness, Hannah just sat there and stared. Allowed us to get her clean without a peep.

As time went by, she grew big enough that we felt comfortable bathing her in the actual tub, using her bath chair.

Months after the anxious kitchen sink debacle, I'd like to think we are pros and so is she. Hannah loves to be naked and loves to be in water, so I think bath time is one of her favourite parts of the day too.

While in the tub, she kicks and splashes the water all while being enamoured with her rubber ducky. The only time she's ever cried is when we've decided she needs to get out before she has decided she's ready.

Recently we added a new ritual to our bath time routine - the use of Mustela Dermo-Cleansing

Dermo-Cleansing is a soap-free cleansing gel specially formulated and tested to safely cleanse the scalp and body of newborns and babies. Through a unique combination of natural properties, it gently cleanses while respecting the integrity of the skin’s protective hydrolipidic film and compensates for the drying effects of tap water through coconut derivatives. It softens skin and soothes irritations with Vitamin B5 and does not sting the eyes thanks to a neutral pH formula. It's safe to use on baby from day one.

I love that the gel is in a pump, which is so much easier to use than a regular bottle. It lathers so nicely and is very practical - cleansing both body and hair.

The first time we used Mustela Dermo-Cleansing we saw my Mom later that day. She said, "Mmm, Hannah smells so good. And her hair looks so great - did you start using something else?" My Mom is in good company - celebrity moms like Kourtney Kardashian, Tori Spelling and Melissa Joan Hart love the Mustela scent too.

All Mustela Bébé products are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, phthalate-free, phenoxyethanol-free, and most importantly safe for babies. You can find Mustela products in select Shoppers Drug Marts.
