A bedtime routine is the secret to a contented baby and we all know that a happy and well-rested baby = a happy you.
At Bloom and Blossom we rely on our four-step bedtime routine, all 5 of our Bloom and Blossom Juniors swear by it.
Use these tools to create a calm, natural and peaceful bedtime routine to ensure your little one is ready for a good night’s sleep…and then you can get some of your own.
Step 1 – Sleep Schedule
Having a bath at the end of the day is an internal switch off for your little ones. It can help them wind down from their day, encourages the sense of familiarity and in turn is the first tool in the pack. Our expertly blended signature baby fragrance provides a naturally soothing scent to help your little one start this process. The familiarity of the fragrance each night starts the process.
Step 2 – Nourish
Baby’s skin is 3-5 times thinner than adults so make sure you look for ingredients in your bedtime products that won’t irritate your child’s delicate skin. Shea butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil are naturally nourishing ingredients and are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. Our Baby Sleep BEDTIME BATH MILK can help to soothe and nourish your little one’s skin – add a generous amount to a running bath, and follow with our sulphate-free gentle Baby Sleep BEDTIME BABY WASH.
Step 3 – Touch & Bond
Studies have shown that massaging your baby can reduce crying and fussiness, help them sleep more peacefully and alleviate constipation and colic. Some say that it even boosts your baby’s ability to fight off germs. Baby massage helps the whole family – it is relaxing for everyone involved and using our Baby Sleep BEDTIME MASSAGE OIL with its familiar fragrance is a great tool for ensuring a good night’s sleep.
Step 4 – Senses
Ensure the sleep environment is as relaxing as possible to encourage production of melatonin which is essential for restful sleep. Babies sense of smell is not as developed as adults, so engaging them with soothing scents like ylang ylang, chamomile and lavender helps to stimulate their senses. Using our Baby Sleep PILLOW SPRAY every night acts as a reminder that it is now light’s out.
About Bloom and Blossom
We are sisters in law, we are mothers and we are beauty junkies. We have always been interested in beauty and skincare – searching for innovative solutions to looking and feeling our best – and no time more so than when we were pregnant. We wanted effective, safe, ingredient-led products that delivered the same results as our non-maternity focused skincare. We also wanted something stylish and elegant that didn’t scream ‘pregnant’. When we couldn’t find anything on the market we liked, we decided to create our own. It’s a vision that has taken a lot of hard work and dedication but provided many laughs along the way.
As parents, with 5 little ones between us, we know the importance of a positive bedtime routine in promoting quality sleep, and we hope that Bloom and Blossom products, will help you and your little ones to sleep well, dream big and believe you can be anything you want to be.
Having a growing young family we are true ambassadors of our own ethos and philosophy. Our children are a daily inspiration, from the products we need to the ingredients we want to use on our children’s skin. We live and breathe the brand, learning every step of the way, listening to our customer’s feedback and reacting to it. Being full time working mums is a tough job, but one we can safely say is hugely rewarding.
