Five Steps for a Natural Bed & Bath Time

Five Steps for a Natural Bed & Bath Time

In October 2022 we teamed up with our friends at Little B By Bramley to offer a spectacular bed & bath time bundle on our Instagram page - the competition was a great success, with the lucky winner of our competition receiving a bundle of Little B's best-selling natural products for children, as well as one of our award-winning Coco Mats, and an Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector.

With these prizes, our winner was equipped with the perfect ingredients for an all-natural bed & bath time for their little one. Little B's products are suitable from birth, making them a great choice for washing away a day of play for all ages!

Step One - Running the bath

Bramley Products | Little B Bath Essentials

After a long day exploring and learning, your little one will most certainly need a good bath! The nurturing essential oils in Little B's bath range soothe and nourish even the most delicate of skin, leaving them relaxed and ready for bed.

We recommend running them a nice warm bath using a splash of Little B's Bubble Bath - made with sweet orange, mandarin and lavender essential oils. Their sulphate-free bubble bath uses a revolutionary biodegradable base, creating a wash that gently lathers and is kind to both your baby's skin and the environment.

Step Two - Time for a wash!

Once the bath is run, it's time to scrub! Made with cleansing clementine, refreshing sweet orange and calming lavender essential oils, Little B's Hair & Body Wash is the perfect way to wash away the dirt of the day. The playful characters on all of Little B's containers make fun storytelling companions while you scrub and soothe your little one ready for bed.

Once bathtime is over, Little B's Body Lotion is great for massaging into their skin - made from nurturing cedarwood, refreshing sweet orange and calming chamomile essential oils for a tranquil end to the day.

Step Three - Now we brush our teeth

While their lotion is soaking in, now would be a great time to make those little gnashers nice and squeaky clean. Each year around 50 million plastic toothbrushes end up in landfill - so switching to a more sustainable alternative like Little B's Bamboo Toothbrush is the obvious choice.

Made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo and with recyclable nylon bristles, Little B's bamboo children’s toothbrush is both sustainable & eco-friendly. 

Step Four - Let's get into some comfy clothes!

Once your little one is suitably soothed and ready for bed, it's time for them to jump into some comfy clothes to help them drift off to sleep. We love Organic Zoo's Terrazzo range of organic cotton clothing, which is made in an ethical way with sustainability considered at every stage of the production process.

Organic cotton means that the fibres are grown without any nasty chemicals or pesticides, and that the least amount of water is used too. It also means that the cotton farmers get a fairer price for their crop, and all of this produces a soft, gentle material which is perfect for your baby's skin.

Step Five - A chemical free bedtime

The last step of our natural bed time routine is to ensure that your baby is sleeping on the best possible crib or cot mattress for their growing body. Our Coco Mat mattress with a waterproof mattress protector is a great combination for newborns and babies up to one year, as it is firm, flat and waterproof - as recommended by the Lullaby Trust.

When it comes to bedding, our range of cotton sheets are just the ticket to provide a soft sleep surface for your baby. Our Organic Cotton Bedding Pack contains a waterproof mattress protector and two of our luxurious brushed organic cotton flat sheets, giving the bedding a splendidly soft feel, perfect for keeping your little one snug all night!

About Little B by Bramley

Bramley Products is an award-winning bath & body care brand harnessing the beneficial qualities of natural, plant-based ingredients. Inspired by the hedgerows and wildflowers in the countryside around her home, founder Chloë created the Bramley range for the bathrooms at the pub she ran with her husband.

Their first few guests loved the products so much that they wanted to buy them for their own bathrooms - so this little apple seed began to grow into something bigger. The Bramley range continues to develop, and has now extended to include candles, room fragrance and Little B.

As a mother of three young children, it was important to Chloë to use a natural range of bath & body products that were delicate on her little ones’ young skin. Noticing a gap in the market and with her previous Bramley experience, Chloë created the award-winning Little B range for children - the rest, as they say, is history!
