Bath Time Bonding for Siblings

April 6, 2016 in KIDspiration, Motherhood, Uncategorized - 2 Comments - 3 min read

Bath time with two little ones is not always an easy task but it’s an almost nightly ritual that the girls actually look forward to so I like to make it fun for them. Now that Lola is a little older the girls really enjoy bath time together and it’s always fun to watch them interact and play. It is the one time where they can really be on each others level and interact in a way that they both can benefit. I really feel like bath time is the perfect time for siblings to bond and learn how to work together as a team.

Ever since Lola could sit up on her own we started bathing the girls together using this neat little seat we found on Amazon called the Baby Safe Bath Tub Ring Anti Slip Seat. It’s not a seat you want to be to far away from the baby while they’re in (which is true in any case while your child is in the bath tub) but we have found great use out of this seat. What I love most is it has allowed the girls bath together for some time now which isn’t easy with two girls, two and under.

Although Joie is only two years old she loves to be involved in the bathing part for Lola and I feel like it builds her confidence in the process. She loves helping pour the soap in her hands and wash Lola’s hair/body. This little task gives her pride in herself and she really feels that important big sister role. We love using The Honest Company Shampoo & Body Wash and we have been using since both girls were days old. This is one product I don’t have to worry about and I know it’s safe for the whole family. And we do in fact all use it in our family!

When it comes to bath toys our favorites by far are from Nuby. They have the cutest selection and what I love is that BOTH girls can enjoy them for their own reasons. Our favorites are the Nuby 10 pcs Bath Squirters. They are the perfect for Lola’s little hands and Joie loves squirting them (at her sister). The animals are adorable and capture the imagination of the girls perfectly. These are the one set of toys that both girls can truly enjoy and even better, enjoy together. Watching the girls bond and play makes all the hard times so worth it as I’m sure many moms can relate to. Lola has her own little favorite and that’s the Nuby Little Submarine Bath Pull Toy. She always has to have her hands or eyes on that toy and I love watching Joie assist her in playing with it. She will pull the tab and have it swim towards Lola and her face lights up every time. In our household there is no better way to end the day than on a good note, with your sister, in a relaxing setting and for that reason I will always support this time for them to bond.

I would love to hear what you all do as part of your bath time routine that helps your children bond in the process? Let me know!

    Thanks for posting this! Ordering the seat ASAP! Was wondering if you could post tips on how you get them out of the bath safety and dress them both after the bath! Haven’t seem to have mastered that one yet…

      Yes! Typically I have my husband to help with that part but if he is away I tend to set up an area outside of the tub with towels and take them out one at a time and sit them on the towels. Then dry them both off right there. I usually keep a few diapers in the bathroom as well and get them one immediately after drying. Hope this helps! Xo

    • Today we frolicked with the fishies at the aquarium for their school field trip and let’s just say these girls couldn’t be happier! What a special way to kick off the long weekend AND Lo’s birthday 🎉🐠 Seeing them so happy is what I live for! #sistersister #birthdaygirl
    • How can I not feel blessed? Everyone I pass when I’m in public with these 4 blesses me as we pass by 🤣 I’ve had multiple people tell me how calm I seem with them (one of those people asked me if I was on drugs...I can’t make this stuff up!) and they have said that next time they feel stressed they’ll just think of me lol...One of those people was a dad so to his wife, you’re welcome, hopefully he comes home in a better mood 😂 I really should just start writing this stuff down because some of the comments we get are too funny! What is the craziest thing you’ve ever been told when out with your kids!? #momof4 #twinmom
    • Double yap this! Where are my target 🎯 friends at?! Not only is target doing their big toy sale right now but @justplayproducts also has the cutest new #Vamperina toy sets out and these girls certainly approve!! If you have a Vamperina fan you can stock up now while the sale is running!  #ad #justplayproducts #easterbasketstuffers
    • These goofballs performed “Shallow” by @ladygaga & Bradley Cooper in their school talent show last week and I finally got it up on YouTube 👏🏼 🎤 You can find the link in my bio or in my #YouTube highlights! I love watching these girls be so brave and standing in front of a crowd like it’s no big deal. If nothing else these girls are learning confidence and I’m just happy to be their biggest cheerleader 📣 #shallow #talentshow #theyalsosangfrozen #becausetheyreextra 🤣
    • So much thanks to @rutheckerdhall for hosting us today at the Daniel Tiger LIVE ‘King For A Day’ show ✨ Everything was perfect and it’s always a favorite venue of ours to attend. The show was adorable and we had 3 little ones with the biggest smiles on their faces the whole show 🐯 Head over to my stories for more of the fun! Do you like Daniel Tiger?! #hosted #danieltigerlive #rutheckerdhall #kingforaday
    • I’ve never had to be more patient than I have these last couple years building this house. Today was a breath of fresh air and reminded me why we chose the builder we did and why it’s taking as long as it has. He met us here on a Saturday to personally help facilitate the design of our front yard (which includes totally changing our driveway 🤦🏻‍♀️). I hear “change” and I immediately shut down but ultimately he wants this house and the finished product to be just as perfect as we do and that I can respect/appreciate! The house will get done and it will be worth it (I’m telling myself this not you 🤣) I shared a question box in my stories about what you’d all want more of on my feed and house updates were one of them! Here are some from today and I will share more as we finish this project up! The kids LOVED watching the lot get prepped for landscape ☀️ Live action of what they’re looking at is in my stories now!  #buildingcasabryant #newhome #custombuild
