FAQs

What is a bubble bath?

You might be wondering what the difference is between bubble bath and regular bath soap. Bubble baths generally have more foaming surfactants in them, aka the stuff that creates a fluffy, sudsy layer when you run a bubble bath under the faucet. Kids love bubble baths, and enticing them with the prospect of a sudsy wonderland is a great way to get dirty, fussy kids in the tub when bath time rolls around.

But bubble baths aren't just for kids! Adults can enjoy taking a long soak in a warm tub of foamy bubbles, too. Foaming bath bombs and sugar cubes are luxurious and fun for people of any age. They've got delightful scents, soothing oils, and calming ingredients like Epsom salts that soften the edges of a long day.

How do I entertain my child in the bath?

So you managed to get your kid in the bath, but now you have an entirely new challenge – entertaining them for the duration. If you've got a bubble bath on hand, you're already halfway there. Bubble baths are a fantastic distraction for bath-averse children, because bubbles! In the event that the bubble bath alone isn't enough, you can also round up a few toys or spoil your little one with a few fun kids' bath products that give unhappy kiddos something to look forward to while you scrub 'em down.

Another way to make bath time more enjoyable is by adding music. Blast your kid's favorite jams or, if you think you might lose it if you have to listen to one more Disney musical, turn your mini me onto some of your favorite songs.

How often should I bathe my baby?

Newborns and infants up to one year old typically don't need to be bathed more than twice a week. Kids this young have super sensitive skin that could dry out if they're washed too often. If you've got a toddler, you can bathe them up to three times a week — or more, if they get especially messy. Of course, it's always a good idea to talk with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns about bathing your children, no matter their age.

If you're in need of some bath time tips, you've come to the right place. Our guide has everything you need to know about bathing your little one, whether they're a newborn bundle or a stinky teenager.
