I must admit, I've never used a product like this. I tend to think 'what is the point?' What purpose does putting bubbles in a baby's water achieve?

I use pure essential oils - just a drop or two and we use specific ones depending on mood or need. So tea tree if dd has the snuffles, chacmomile when she was agitated, mandarin if we were feeling frazzled, lavender to soothe her before bed etc.

I don't say this to be mean, but I've just never really 'got it' about bubbles - especially as most of those products arrive in plastic packaging.........

Anyway, I'm glad your little one enjoyed himself, and I know that the beaming baby products are safe, so that's good. johnson and Johnson really scare me :D

I hear you Mrs G. We mostly use lavender oil ourselves as this helps calm him and prepare him for bed (and is good for his skin of course) but the bubble thing amuses him no end and helps motivate him into the bath on those tricky days when his monkey side is more prevalent, if you know what I mean. The first time he blew the bubbles from his hand he was captivated...

Plus the bottle says it is 100% recycled plastic, which is a bonus, so if people are going to use bubble bath for their kids then at least this provides a much better alternative than other well known high street brands [ahem] ;)



Mrs Green

Ah, that's good to know about the recycled plastic bottles.

I guess we only talk from our own experiences and with a natural water babe (born under water too!) I've never had a monkey at bath time - keeping her OUT is always the problem; even now!

I can understand how the lure of bubbles might be just too tantalising for some though; and there is no price to put on the face of a young babe experiencing joy and awe at the most simple of things. Gotta love that!

For sure, we too had a wonderful water birth and Coby was born under water...amazing experience...but sadly for us sometimes bath time requires a little bit of bribery ;) i.e. some bubbles or a favourite toy. Once he is in we cannot get him out of course he he he although he has no problem getting the water out of the bath - amazing how one so small can make soooo much mess :)
