Bath time with a toddler is a whole different ballgame from the days of infancy when they were gently washed down in a confined infant tub. The switch to mom and dad’s “grown up” bathtub provides all sorts of opportunity for bath time fun, from new toys to splash around with to the sensory overload of bubbles galore! For parents, it often leads to another question: what are the best products to use now that you no longer need to worry about delicate infant skin? Here’s a roundup of the very best toddler bubble bath products that will leave them squeaky clean!
This organic, natural bubble bath from the trusted Honest brand of products is paraben free, sulfate free, and dye free, and is ethically made without the use of animal testing. The dreamy lavender scent will calm even the most active of toddlers, and parents can enjoy the fact that the fragrance is made from all natural essential oils with no synthetic fragrances.
The current favorite in our house, this is our choice for the best toddler bubble bath product! It’s free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, SLS, artificial coloring, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, AND it’s vegan and cruelty free. Did I mention the smell? It’s INCREDIBLE.
