Kids' Bathroom Scents
Kids' Bathroom Accessories is not only for the grown ups. With a few minor changes to your current setup, you can convert your toddler's bath into a calming and soothing oasis for them. Your little one needs stimulation just like an adult does, but in a more relaxing environment. They need to learn how to calm themselves down and take care of their bodily functions. That's where bath accessories come in.
Kids' Bathroom Accessories is available at most drug stores, along with home improvement centers and furniture stores. Try to avoid buying products that could be harmful to your child, such as soaps with harsh chemicals or very hot water. There are many inexpensive options, such as brightly colored candles that provide just enough light for your little one to read. If you don't want to use candles, try placing a flower near the bathtub that matches or colors the color of the room. You can add a toy or a stuffed animal to keep your little one distracted.
Make sure the kids' bath is safe. There are specific locking devices for the tubs and rails. Don't forget the door and the windows. The only way to see if your child is still safely in the bath is if the door and the windows are shut. If you leave them open, it could tempt them to try and escape.
If your child has trouble falling asleep, don't give in to their request to stay in the bath. Instead, set up a fun bedtime routine for them. Pick them up from school or play with them outside. Play some soothing music in the background while you take a few minutes to brush their teeth or change diapers. When you're changing their diaper, tell them to stay in bed until you're ready to change them.
Have you given any thought to splashing your little one with some bubbles or a little lemonade? It's fun to do and helps to relax their muscles. But you should wait until they have had a nap before trying it. You don't want to throw water on them, which could hurt them.
If the kids' bath is on the second floor, there is plenty of room to swing. Here, you can also have some adult-sized sofas where the children can sit and play games. Look around the room and be creative. Do you have any cabinets where you can store toys or books? Or, are there some shelves where you can store the toys and books? There are probably a few hiding places that you can't see yet.
Once you've settled on a layout, you can begin decorating. Remember to choose bright colors for the bath and bright shades for the furniture. This will help prevent the bath from looking dull. Choose items that you can move around easily, such as a couple of chairs or a bookcase.
Finally, remember that a kids' bath isn't just about sitting in a tub. You can decorate it with baskets to hold washcloths and towels. Bamboo baskets make good holders for these items, and look great too!
After the bath, turn off the water and set the tub aside. Fill the tub up with steaming hot bathwater and let your child soak. Let them stay in there for a while, then take them out. Have a bucket and a towel ready for them to use when they're done. When they come out, dry them off with towels.
For kids, it's a good idea to have a "spa" with them where they can get a facial and massage. That way, they won't feel as tense when they come out. If you have an established relationship with your child, he/she might even be willing to give you a hand with this. Just make sure not to overdo it.
The next step is to check their skin. It's best if you do this right before they go to bed. Wet their hands with a little water and place them on a soft cloth. Then, using a washcloth, gently rub their stomach and hips until they feel a little more soft.
Once you see that itchy feeling has gone away, gently run your finger along the length of their spine to the base of their neck. Kids' bodies have different sensitivity. If it hurts to touch that area, then try something else. If it doesn't feel right, don't use it anymore and you're off to a successful day!
