Upgraded bedtime routine: First Bubble Bath

Jack absolutely loves his nightly bath. He plays with a motley crew toys gathered since he was a newborn and greets them eagerly each night like old friends. He loves getting soaped up, shampooing his animals and toys, and watching the suds float around. 

So you can imagine how thrilled he was when he saw the bath filling with water - and bubbles!!

He played and played and played. I expected him to wildly interested and then just go back to his normal bath time antics. But he silently played with his animals, looked at the bubbles moving, poked his toes through the bubble mountains, and explored the bubbly goodness. 

We have stayed away from bubble bath because he has mildly sensitive skin and we didn't want to tempt fate to a horrible full body rash. But everything went fine and he had a blast :)  he loved being rinsed standing up in an empty tub afterwards too! We will totally do it again. I have a feeling this bath ruined all other future baths that don't have bubbles! 

Most awesome and most mellow bath he's had in a long time :) Happy Sunday eve everyone! Get geared up for Monday, maybe a bubble bath is just what everyone needs to get ready for another week. Haha! 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our bubble loving Happily Hectic Household!



  1. What fun! Looks like dinosaurs hide in the soap bubbles too. Cool


  2. Funny that so many parents are afraid of exposing their sensitive-skinned children to bubble baths, when they've been washing them with liquid products that have similar (or identical) ingredients to bubble bath. If yours loved "watching the suds float around", that was probably so. (Or you just had soft water that bar soap made sudsy.)
