It’s been about three years, give or take a month, since I have really had to deal with sleepless nights on a consistent basis. Don’t get me wrong, I have the occasional bought of insomnia, or the occasional night of staying up to deal with a child that doesn’t feel well. But for the most part, I get my sleep.
I like my sleep.
A restful night’s sleep is important for emotional and physical health. We all know that when you sign up for a new baby, you are signing up for sleepless nights. Babies often have a hard time falling asleep and often wake up many many many times during the night. Sleepless nights make for a cranky baby and a cranky mommy. When you have other children in the home, though, you have to do what you can to try and steal sneak all the z’s you can.
Luckily, Mommy’s Bliss (the natural colic remedy people) has introduced a new line of bedtime routine products for infants. The Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber Line includes a Sweet Slumber Baby Wash, a Sweet Slumber Massage Cream, and a Sweet Slumber Mist. All three products are 100% vegetarian and vegan and is packaged in 100% recycled post-consumer resin. They are gentle enough for daily use, have no artificial fragrances, are free of gluten, soy, alcohol, sulfates phtalates and parabens.
What do they have, then? They contain essential oils historically believed to aid in sleep, such as English Lavender Oil, German Chamomile Extract and Ylang Ylang Flower Oil. They also have other soothing, natural botanical ingredients. Whatever it is, they SMELL awesome, and I know I want to use them and take a nap!
The Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber Baby Wash is tear free and retails for $7.99 (for an 11.75 oz bottle). The Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber Massage Cream is non-greasy, so it absorbs quickly, and runs $6.99 (for an 8.25 fl. oz. bottle).
