Bedtime Routine with Two Boys

This post is sponsored by Baby Magic and The Motherhood. As always, all thoughts and 
opinions are my own.

In our house we like our routines. Especially the bed time routine.

We aren't always successful keeping on schedule, due to a 4 year old and a 19 month old who try their hardest to knock us off our game, but every single night includes a bath.

I know, I know- that might seem like a lot to some.

Finn eats more food than any of us in the house, making sure to get it all over himself first, and he plays in any dirt he can find. So needless to say, bath time has always been one piece of the bedtime puzzle, and with two active boys trust me they need it!

Finn also has eczema flare ups so we have to be really picky about the products we use.

Enter, brand new Baby Magic products.

I'll be 110% honest, I don't normally love scented products on my babies. But Baby Magic's new line of bath soap and lotions is void of all of the bad stuff like sulfates, mineral oil, dyes, paragons, phthalates, talc and lanolin.

So, we gave it a try!

If it can keep my littles smelling good, and its safe for them, then bring it! Lord knows their bathroom needs a little lavender scent to mask the other scents in there.

So because I love hearing others' routines (is that weird?), I thought I'd share ours!

One: Start the bedtime process with a bath

After dinner we head up for bath time with both boys. As Finn gets older, bath time has gotten infinitely easier.  So if you're in the trenches of a toddler + newborn bath time, trust me it will get easier and you will get into a rhythm!

We really like the Calming Bath and lotion for our boys. I love that it has lavender, chamomile and aloe in it for nighttime use. It smells so good and the lavender is good for relaxing- or attempting to relax two rambunctious boys.

Two: Moisturize

After bath time comes Calming Lotion and pajamas.

With his sensitive skin, Finn is no stranger to lotion. He's recently discovered that he can rub it in himself... and open the cap... so thats been fun. 

Three: Play time

Nope, I'm not joking. You know that Meme where it says Dad gets the kids all riled up at bed time? Well, that's what happens here.

Playtime is an essential piece of our bed time puzzle. It started as a time for Rowan to have solo time with us when Finn was a newborn and would go to bed first, but now they both LOVE it.

It's just 10-15 minutes of whatever the heck they want to do.

Tackle Dad? Sure. Race trucks down the hallway? Why Not. Play laser tag? Yep.

It runs off that extra bit of energy before sleep and some QT with us.

Four: Books + white noise. 

Oh my goodness I don't know what we'd do without our white noise machines. Our boys sleep so much better with it on. They are also total bookworms so we had to limit reading to three books each night.

We rock our babies to sleep in our house, and Finn's cuddles might just be the best ever. Do you ever just drink up that baby smell and try to burn it into your memory? Yep, that's me.

Baby Magic bath products have been a great addition to our routine, We also love Baby Magic's fragrance-free 3-in-1 wipes for cleaning all the things.

Be sure to check out their line of hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested bath soaps, wipes, and lotions!

Thank you to Baby Magic for this partnership opportunity.
