Mum Tip : Bathing My Toddler with the Best Soap

If you have a toddler, you know 2 minutes of downtime is more than you deserve, and that being clean is a rare sight to behold. No not just the clothes, but the body as well. So I decided to share my mum tip on bathing my toddler.

I remember the other day I had to trim my son’s hair because he had decided to have a sand shower, his afro could not let go of the sand and we had to trim it to clean off all the sand. Those 2 minutes are also rare during bath time, from trying to see how big a splash he can make to wanting to wash himself and refusing to leave the bathroom. I can wash him in 6.5 minutes but we take close to 20 minutes because he never wants to leave the bathroom.

I have had a couple of soap in the eyes situation I must admit and that made him get terrified by the face towel getting any close to his face. He will declare his stand way before we start showering, “don’t wash my eyes with soap mama.” If you see the face that doesn’t want soap you will want to run because coming from playtime sand is just a percentage of the dirt.

Johnson and Johnson’s Top to Toe wash has been our saving grace.

With the no more tears promise, you can be sure he will not notice that his face is being washed with soap. I get to achieve my goal, trust me washing the face of a toddler and a goal, and he gets to enjoy his bath time.

I used it at the hospital when my son was born, did you know that you need to pack soap? Well an article of what to pack in your hospital bag is coming soon, I promise =)
