Keeping your kids clean is one of those jobs that can be tough. Even the cleanest of parents can quickly find their bundle of joy a stinky mess. Never fear! The cosmetic companies of the world hear your battle cry against strange smells and stains. So, without any further holdups, here is empties from the bathroom, the kids edition.
As normal, if you want a piece of this action, I have left links to my partners at Amazon. If you buy something from these links, I make a bit of money. Awesomes.
Kids Empties #1- Bubble bath
There are few things in this world that are worse than a child with the cold. A vomiting child tops it, but more often we have to deal with the common cold. I found this randomly in Asda one night and thought it could be worth the entire £1 I spent on it. It wasn’t harsh on the nose and eyes but did give a slight vapour scent. I don’t know if it was all it was cracked up to be, it definitely didn’t cure the runny nose. But I did like it. If anything, it was something a bit different for bath time.
Kids Empties #2- Body lotion
I love using body lotion on my kids! There is something about it that makes them smell nice and cuddly. Maybe it just invokes my brain and reminds me of when they were babies. Back when they didn’t mind getting cuddled for hours on end. Anyway, I picked this up to try it and see if it was as good as the name brand. And it was! Tesco Loves Baby worked just as well as other lotions. My son gets little dry patches and this helped to keep him moisturised and smell like a baby. Even though he is five.
Kids Empties #3- Toothpaste
If there is one thing I want to get through my kids heads, it’s oral hygiene. I don’t want them to be plagued later in life with teeth and gum problems. So I decided to use this toothpaste in the hope that I can encourage the habit of teeth brushing. This stuff actually tastes good. I used it myself a few times. The taste and the picture of Lightning McQueen from Cars made sure that my son enjoyed using it too.
Kids Empties #4- Shampoo
I hate head lice. Actually, I hate a lot of things in this life, but head lice and fleas are up there in my top ten. After my son’s class had a massive outbreak of headlice, and I mean that, I was forced to take drastic action. Every week we got notes home about another breakout. I decided to try out this shampoo in the hope that we wouldn’t have to keep treating his hair. And it worked! Also, side note, if you live in the UK, you can get stuff to treat headlice on the NHS. But only use it if your kid gets lice. This shampoo can be used to prevent the lice hopping onto your kids head.
Kids Empties #5- Baby Wipes
I like to keep baby wipes in my bathroom for everyone. My husband, when we first got together, thought it was a really weird idea. But now, he couldn’t be without baby wipes for his own behind. Baby wipes are great for poop, makeup, and sometimes cleaning up spills. These Asda ones are cheap and cheerful, which is all you need for wipes. They have the bonus clip lid that stops them from drying out.
Kids Empties #6- More Baby Wipes
Another pack of baby wipes but these ones are the fancy brand of Pampers. The packaging is just like the Asda ones, with the clip lid. But the Pampers have less wipes than the Asda ones. But, the Pampers ones are softer. Depending on money, which is what it comes down to, either of these is good. Personally, I prefer the Pampers ones. They were softer and smelt a bit nicer.
