Sleep & Settling

This Is The Easiest Way To Swaddle and Put a Baby to Bed

Ahh, baby bedtime! It’s one of the trickiest things to master in baby’s first few weeks. Initially, newborns will sleep anywhere, but they quickly discover that staying awake is a lot more fun.

That is why generations of parents have relied on a simple, yet effective three-step sleep routine to help ensure they have one contented and sleepy bubba on their hands.

A warm bath + a soft massage + a soft and cuddly swaddle = newborn baby bliss! And, fingers crossed, at least a few hours of uninterrupted sleep for you too.

CottonTouch: the brand mums are loving

Johnson’s Baby, one of the most trusted baby brands in Australia, has just released a new range of baby care products called CottonTouch.  This range of baby products is softer, gentler and better-received than anything else that Johnson’s has put on the shelves. In fact, the range has earned one of the highest consumer satisfaction scores in Johnson’s history.

First, fill up a warm bath and use the CottonTouch Newborn Wash and Shampoo to gently clean their skin and hair and make them smell oh-so-divine. Once they’re all clean, use the CottonTouch Face and Body Lotion for a lovely after-bath, pre-bed massage. If only we mums could have one too!

The CottonTouch products are blended with real cotton, pH balanced for newborns’ skin, contain no added parabens, phthalates, sulfates or dyes and feature new modernised packaging. They are super soft on your baby’s sensitive skin and definitely worth a try during your evening bedtime routine with bub.
