Your baby’s bedtime routine

After a busy day it’s time to get the little one ready for bed. We’ve all heard about the importance of getting babies into a good routine, so here are our Childs Farm essentials for getting them ready for bed.

How relaxing is a bath to help you to unwind after a long day? Well that’s the same for your little ones. Add a calming evening bath to their night time routine to help them relax. Childs Farm award-winning mild, foaming bubble bath which contains tangerine oil to calm and soothe and vitamin E to gently moisturise is perfect for your baby at bedtime! We even sell a baby bath thermometer, so you can make sure the bath water is the right temperature.

Moisturiser or baby oil? We’ve got you covered with both.

Apply our baby moisturiser after their bath, containing some of natures finest ingredients, it has been specially formulated to help protect and hydrate your baby’s skin. Alternatively, let them enjoy a massage with our baby massage oil. Containing four oils including organic coconut oil to moisturise all skin types. It’s light, luxurious, mild and gentle – perfect for baby massage, and a perfect end to their evening routine.

While there hasn’t been much evidence of the benefits of baby massage, people believe it can:

• Help you to bond and interact with your baby
• Encourage your baby to relax and sleep
• Soothe your baby if they are suffering from colic
• Help other members of the family to bond with your baby

Our top tips for taking your child swimming

 

Swimming is one of the best workouts for you – it keeps your heart rate up, but the water takes the impact off your body, building up your muscular strength and cardiovascular fitness and helping maintain a healthy weight, heart and lungs. And while it’s a great workout for you, it’s also a great activity for the kids.

Whether it be playing in the local leisure centre pool or at the waterpark, swimming is not only great entertainment for the kids but also a life-saving skill for them to learn.

Here we share our tips for taking the kids to the pool:

1. Go prepared

Children are unpredictable, go prepared. Go to the pool with your swimming costumes under your clothes, for you and them. This will save time and hassle when you’re there but don’t forget to pack your underwear – we’ve all been there!

If you’re planning on visiting an outdoor pool, make sure you suncream up before going and take suncream to reapply every 1-2 hours – and make sure you take a drink, swimming is an exercise after all.

2. Plan according to the weather

Bare the weather in mind. Swimming is an all weather sport but it may be worth checking the weather before you go. Choose an indoor pool if that weather’s glum or stay outdoors if the weathers nice.

3. Avoid large meals

Don’t eat for at least an hour before swimming. There is the age old rumour that eating a big meal before swimming causes the blood flow to be directed away from your limbs to your digestive system which could lead to drowning however, it’s more likely that you will get stomach cramps and or feel sick… We sugguest waiting that hour!

4. Take that 3 in 1 Swim

We’ve created the perfect post swim product, for hassle free hair-to-toe cleaning; our 3 in 1 Swim. It will leave their hair clean and shiny and a top to toe smell of delicious strawberry and organic mint.

5. Swimming lessons

Swimming is an exellent sport for health benefits and a great life saving skill to learn. For those little ones that aren’t the most confident of swimmers we sugguest looking into swimming lessons, to make sure they find going swimming as much of a treat as you do!

You don’t need to just go swimming at the pool, how about planning a trip to the beach? We’re heading down to Cornwall this summer to Polzeath beach with our Sun Cream truck where we will be selling our suncare from. Doing our bit to help protect the UK coast from sunburn this summer. Come and say hi to our Founder, Joanna Jenson, if you’re nearby!
