Baby Bath Products

It’s the best news in the world to discover that you are going to be a mum, and even better when your little one arrives and you know that you have played such an important part in creating that life. However, we know that with motherhood comes great responsibility!

One of the scariest, yet most essential tasks is bathing your baby. It never seems to be quite as easy as it looks and babies are a lot more slippery than you would imagine when wet. We know that this task can seem daunting so it is important that you are prepared and have the right products to hand when tackling baby bath time.

We all know that babies skin is more delicate than our own, and indeed we need to use products specifically formulated for babies skin to prevent reactions to harsher products. 
 Unfortunately choosing the right products for your baby might not always be as easy as you think. There are literally hundreds of baby products to choose from and you will find yourself wading through hundreds of the same product trying to discern the differences between them and whether or not they are right for your little one.

Here are some of the things you should consider before investing in some of the baby bath products available:

  • Probably the most important item will be a baby bath. You cannot bathe your baby effectively without one. They really do make the task easier and are safer than the alternatives. Make sure that you buy a bath made from quality plastic without small parts that can become detached and create a hazard for your little one.
  • Some may argue that the next most important product for baby bath time are toys! Buy only toys which pass international safety standards and do not contain any nasty chemicals (don’t forget that little ones explore with their mouths and any toys you give them should be devoid of small parts that may cause a choking hazard).

  •  It is important that you have the right washcloths and towels, rough ones can damage your baby’s skin and cause irritation. We recommend buying only natural cotton products which are completely organic and free from chemicals, whilst being very delicate on the skin..

  •   When choosing soap or shampoo, choose one that is unscented. Scents are often indicators of chemicals being included in the product and sensitive baby skin can react to the artificial fragrances in these products.  Using unscented, organic products will help you to protect your little ones skin.

  •   When buying bath products we also recommend that you read the labels and where possible buy only the ones which are labeled hypo-allergenic or organic. This means that while the product is reliable enough to remove dirt and germs in your baby's skin, the product is also light on chemicals that can irritate baby's sensitive skin.

  •  Products that are formulated for sensitive skin are also good for babies. Usually these products are formulated especially for baby’s delicate skin and you can be confident that they will help you to protect your baby’s skin at bath time.

When buying bath products for anyone or giving bath and soap favors, you should make quality your top priority, especially for newborn babies. Caring for baby's skin is one of our top priorities and we make sure that we only stock organic, natural products that are designed specifically for babies so you can be safe in the knowledge that we are looking out for your little one too.

Bruno Toscano

Bruno Toscano opened the first tailoring studio specifically for children, this was back in 1977 in the city of Florence in Italy. From these humble beginnings, the Bruno Toscano brand has become famed as an international leader of style and quality for childrenswear and is recognised across the world.

Bruno Toscano prides itself on making clothing for children and teenagers alike and works hard to ensure that the clothes are accessible to everyone, regardless of where they live or who they are. The company aims to help break down social barriers and stigmas by creating a brand that can be enjoyed by children across the globe, no matter their race, religion or class.

Not only does the brand work hard to ensure that its clothes are accessible to all, but it believes that children are all individuals and should be able to express themselves freely in the way they dress and the clothes they wear. Here at Goodforbabies we love that children can combine the clothing in ways that are unique to them and express their personality through the individual items created by Bruno Toscano. The brand endeavours to create fashionable items that children and teenagers alike will enjoy. The high quality of all of the items sold, ensures that they wash beautifully and stand the test of time and we know tht mums are big fans of the brand too for this very reason, after all how many teenagers do you know that do their own washing and ironing!

For those of mums out there it is also comforting to know that  whilst Bruno Toscano makes clothing for children, unlike many other competitor companies who source and sell children’s clothing, Bruno Toscano don’t use children to make their clothing. They work to ensure that child labour is not used in the production of their garments and pride themselves on this fact. The brand also works hard to make sure that the production of its clothing has as little impact on the environment as possible, whilst they want to create accessible and fashionable clothing choices for children they also want to protect the environment for future generations.
