Our Bedtime Routine
Bath time is one of my favorite parts of the day. One, because I survived motherhood another day. Two, it’s that fun part of the day when Izzy get’s to have some water play and quality time with mommy and daddy.
Our routine for bath time consists of me undressing Izzy and getting her diaper off in her room. She then runs, naked buns and all, into her bathroom and her daddy is already in there getting her tub started. He plays with his little princess. I get Izzy’s pjs and diaper out for bed and pick up her bedroom or playroom and maybe get a load of laundry in the wash. Then I go in and have a little one on one with Izzy before I get her out of the tub.
What’s on the edge of the tub? A Shelfie! This is bar far one of the best bathroom finds and a tubby time must! The Shelfie holds Izzy’s toys after and during play, keeps water from spilling on the floor and allows water to drain back into the tub. It easily sticks to the tub with little suctions. Best of all the Shelfie will not break the bank. It’s only $19.95… which is a great price for something your child will be using for years. You can purchase your Shelfie here.
Some of her favorite bath toys are the Nuby Little Squirts. These soft rubber characters are fun because they all float. Izzy is learning to squeeze them so she can squirt water from them. If you are looking to purchase them, you can find them at Babies R Us or Amazon.
Izzy is wrapped in her Zoocchini towel after her tub and ready for the next part of our routine. This is my favorite brand of towels because they are so soft and really absorb the water. Not to mention they have adorable hooded patterns.
Now it’s off to the sink to brush her teeth. Thank you Nana for suggesting the ABC song while we brush. If you haven’t tried it, you should. Izzy allows me to brush her teeth so much longer now that we sing ABCs. For brushing we use the first brush from MAM baby. Not only is it easy for us to brush Izzy’s teeth but it is easy for her to brush hers as well.
After brushing she’s off to her room for a diaper and pjs. Once dressed she picks out books for myself and her daddy to read. After some story time we both give Izzy big kisses and lay her in her crib.
