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.

    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

    • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether
    • Take a tour of the playhouse before it gets decorated for our playroom reveal!
    • Giving you a tour of the under the stairs playhouse as it stands now on the blog tonight! The fort inside is just as well made as out the outside and I was happy to test it out for the kids 😜 They still haven’t seen it! It’s going to be good. Head to the link in my bio (I will post in stories too along with a video tour) for more! I’m so excited for the kids to see it! Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
    • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
    • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
    • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
