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

    • I’ll be done with the vaca pics soon but as I’m here unpacking from the trip (yes, I’m still unpacking 😂) I had to share this portable playpen from @babyseater.us that we received before we left! Normally the boys FREAK OUT if we try to contain them in any sort of baby jail (I mean play pen 🤪) but because this one can be left open at times the boys took to it much better. It was their space for them play and come and go as they please. They didn’t look at it negatively because of this! SO if I needed them contained it wasn’t a huge deal to zip the side up quick while I got done what I needed to do and they kept on playing 👏🏼 I may just keep this set up ongoing for them to have their own space since they seemed to love it so much! I’m going to link this in my stories now if you’re interested! Total game changer for these two #ad #twinlife
    • She was eager to get back to playing golf so we ran out to get a couple drives in before those dark clouds made their way in🏌️‍♀️ #5yearsold #juniorgolf
    • We sure are missing our sunsets at the beach house right about now! I just pulled these pictures off my camera of the girls and they were so happy running off their energy to this beautiful scene ☀️Now it’s back to hitting golf balls at sunset until we move! You can see these little ladies working it in my stories (a full day of the #usopen will do that to ya!) 🏌️‍♀️ #beachsunsets #mygirls
    • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there! I’m so lucky to do parenthood with this guy. He’s patient, loving, so so funny and fills in all my weaknesses 💙  Everybody he meets loves him too (to the point that I get sighs when I show up to the kids’ pediatrician without him 😆.) I think it’s safe to say our crew hit the daddy jackpot (wether they know it now or not, they will!) ✨ He really is the best! ✨Also, only 1 of 4 kids pictured because, well #4kids 😜 #happyfathersday
    • Today was a travel day for us 🚗 It was time to say good-bye to this trip and hello to the rest of summer break ☀️ The car may have been loaded with a weeks’ worth of stuff jumbled up for our crew but I still love to keep my stuff together (and separate 🤣!) I have loved how multi-functional this Day Trip bag from @loganandlenora has been for this trip and I’m so happy it arrived in time to use! From a crossbody bag to a hand bag AND it slides right on your luggage too 👏🏼 Def my new fav travel companion! #ad #summervacay
    • Last night at the house called for ice cream on the beach for sunset 🌅 Swipe to see these crazy sugar high ladies (& Lo’s sassy self)🍦We had the best week and I hate to see it end but so thankful for the time we had! Hoping our next big event is moving into our house...if it’ll ever get complete 😬 #summervacay #sunset
