I love babies! I have always enjoyed playing with the neighbourhood kids, especially toddlers and volunteer and assist their mothers in feeding them, bathing them or just entertaining them. When my son was born, the one thing that I was most excited about was finally having my own bundle of joy with no limited baby time so that I could spend all my hours with him. Isn’t that wonderful?!
Along with a baby, a mother is born as well. Though I was excited about having this precious munchkin in my life, but I was always concerned about his safety. I was a little skeptical about everything that revolved around him. From the cleanliness of the hands of the people who touched him to, the clothes that he wore, to the volume of speech, of the guest who came to visit him. One thing that I had decided was that nobody would bathe my child except me, but because I had a C section, I could not do it immediately. So, after the customary 28 days, I started bathing him myself.
I was equally worried about the baby skin products that I would use on him. A lot of friends and relatives gifted me with Johnson and Johnson’s Baby Sets, which included a Johnson and Johnson Powder, lotion, body cream, a cute comb, hairbrush, small set of clothes and a Johnson and Johnson soap. The Fragrance of Johnson’s products always reminds me the touch of small babies.
Bath time with my little one has always been the trickiest yet the most favourite part. Different people would come up with different suggestions when it comes to bath. Some recommended using the traditional besan and haldi, whereas some people said that oil is enough. The nanny who would come exclusively to bathe him would always insist on using besan and haldi, I was not fully in support of that because I was always scared what if the haldi goes into the child’s eyes by mistake. I would always prefer to use Johnson’s baby soap on his body, face, and hair. Once, yes, my biggest fear did come true, when by mistake a little soap went into his eyes, which I immediately rinsed off with plain water, without harming my child’s eye.
That is the day when my trust on the Johnson and Johnson’s products became unbreakable. This incident proved that their products are not only safe and mild as they mention in their advertisements but they really do care about the safety of our children. Sometimes, when it is related to your children, it just takes a minute to form an opinion about things around them and in my opinion. How do you ensure safety in the skin care products for your babies? Let me know in the comment section below.
