Dear Crissy

Keeping baby fresh on-the-go

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Baby Magic.

How sweet are babies and toddlers? Since you’re not here to answer, I’ll say it for you. They are REALLY, really sweet.

That said, how could something so undeniably sweet get so un-sweet, so fast? Babies truly aren’t protected by a force-field of freshness after a bath, and sometimes it seems like only hours before they need yet another bath, especially when they play as hard as Kara plays. I mean, just look at this kid.

This is summer fun, and this is the glory of childhood!

While a nice warm bath is best to keep babies clean, sometimes, especially when you’re traveling or simply in a hurry, you may not have the time for a tubby.

For instance, I recently took my kids to visit their great-grandmother. I had hoped to have the time to bathe both of them before our visit, but, I only had time to give Evan a bath due to an unforeseen tantrum. Moms, you know how it goes!

When my grandma picked up Kara, she gave her a hug and then said, “I think this kid needs a bath!”

Pretty bad when great-grandma points out your kid stinks, woops!

Now, to keep the kids smelling fresh and clean even when we’re on-the-go, I use Baby Magic’s No-Rinse Wash. Baby Magic No-Rinse Wash is specially formulated for baby’s sensitive skin and the self-foaming application allows you to clean your baby without using water. Now you can keep your baby clean even when you are away from home.

Baby Magic No-Rinse Wash is also…

  • Alcohol-Free
  • Paraben-Free
  • Tear-Free
  • Dye-Free
  • Phthalate-Free
  • pH balanced
  • Hypoallergenic

Love that! I love how easy it is to apply this no-rinse wash, and the scent is really soft and sweet. I also found that Kara’s skin was smooth and residue-free following use. She really does smell fresh and clean when I use this product!

    Truly, the worst moment we’ve had in his short 6 months so far is when he pooped while in the activity jumper. We didn’t realize it at first and all the jumping just sort of squeezed the poo out everywhere. I swear, even after a bath he still didn’t smell that great ;-)

    For me it’s usually when Zach decides that the best time to poop is while we are driving to a certain destination. By the time we get to point A, he is in need of not only a diaper change but a serious bath! I have a product similar to the Baby Magic no-wash rinse that we use when it happens. It keeps him fresh!

    my kids are often non-sweet smelling, lol. This looks like a great product for on the go!

    Oh two boys have left the sweet-fresh smelling behind long ago. Now, they run, they play outdoor they smell of sweat almost all the time ough! That after-bath refreshing fragrant will be gone the moment they step outside to play. My friend who has a daughter just made a random rambling about this on Facebook. I will tell her about this product and maybe it is available in our country.

    I cant wait to try this for quick clean ups! When we are on a road trip and she gets all yucky from being in the car, this will be great!
