I remember that Afrikaans nursery rhyme very well: “As boetie bad is alles nat wat in die kamer staan …” (Roughly translated to “When brother baths, everything is wet that is in the bathroom”.)
Even more so because we have a three year old boy and a one year old girl who absolutely worships her “big brother” and imitates everything he does. So, twice the splashing and double the trouble 😉 To make the bath-time routine that much more enjoyable, we’ve recently added another bath-time friend into the mix …
I recently was invited to try out the new Baby Dove product offering (I prefer shopping online and get my stash from Clicks’s online store) and was impressed by all the careful consideration that their team put into the formulation of this “soap” and the entire range. I say “soap” in inverted commas, because I still clearly remember the fact that Dove’s ¼ moisturising cream” was drummed into our minds when it first launched in South Africa. Well, the baby soap continues that legacy and offers your baby tip-to-toe care. From baby body wash to baby lotions, it goes beyond mildness to help keep your little one’s delicate skin, hair and scalp healthy.
In the first year of your baby’s life, their skin is delicate – so delicate that it’s about 30% thinner than our own. This means that your little one needs tip-to-toe moisturising care to help keep their skin, scalp and hair looking and feeling healthy. The rich moisture range is hypoallergenic with fragrances designed specially for baby skin and every product provides gentle care and a delicate, comforting scent for your baby.
There’s a baby body wash and a baby bar containing ¼ moisturising cream (I told you so 😉 yip, I repeat myself for emphasis!), for touchably softer delicate skin, to help nourish your baby’s skin during bath-time. The rich moisture lotion helps to moisturise, keeping baby’s skin soft, smooth and hydrated. For baby’s scalp and hair, there is a shampoo that leaves them clean and soft. And my favourite – the gentle cleansing baby wipes come in an easy-to-use pack for when you’re on the go. These I keep in my bag, even when the kids are not in tow as they are perfect for quickly freshening up the hands, wiping off make-up or wiping off the porridge hand-print on my trenchcoat.
So, keep an eye out for the range available in Clicks and if you’d like to stand a chance of winning your own Baby Dove hamper worth over R5000, share your bathtime story below in the comments to enter.
