My son is ten months old and even at his young age he refuses to abide to any sort of bedtime. Naps have been out of his routine for awhile now as he just will not fall asleep. We have tried all the obvious things to stimulate a relaxing evening for him in hopes that he will doze off at a reasonable hour so the rest of the family can get to sleep too. Low lights, soft music, rocking, and even bed time stories do not help at all.
His pediatrician recommended bathing him right before bed time in Johnson and Johnson’s bedtime lavender body wash. We spent a good chunk of money on bubble bath soap, body wash, and lotion and after almost a month of bathing him every night before bed and it has not shown very impressive results.
The soothing smell of the lavender makes me sleepy but my son stays energized for three to five hours after taking the bath. I do like the way the body wash smells and how clean and moisturized it leaves my son’s skin but I’m not sure if it’s actually helping as my son still stays up and refuses to sleep. We are kind of disappointed in how much time and money we have put into this product.
