“My son went through a phase where he hated the bath, refused to get in and would scream,” remembers Kimberly Day, Baby Dove scientist and a mum of two. “Explaining to him to put his head back to rinse the shampoo out of his hair was difficult because he didn't understand… avoiding tears was very stressful.”
So what's the secret to a stress-free baby bathtime? Gentle baby products and mild baby shampoo that won't irritate your little one's delicate eyes will help, so look out for the words 'tear-free'. You'll find them on Baby Dove Rich Moisture Hair to Toe Wash, Rich Moisture Shampoo, and on our Sensitive Moisture Hair to Toe Wash too. It's our promise that they've been carefully formulated by our scientists (many of them parents themselves) and ophthalmologist-tested to ensure they're mild and won't irritate or sting your baby’s eyes.
What’s the secret to a tear-free baby bathtime?
For many mums and dads, baby bathtime is a moment to look forward to. But sometimes – and often for no obvious reason – babies and toddlers don't feel the same way.
“A tear-free claim is actually quite important to me and probably most other parents; you don’t want to cause pain on your kids and surfactants can easily sting the eye."
Evan, Baby Dove scientist and dad of two.
