I know we have all been there…our kids are sick (or maybe it’s an every night thing) and absolutely nothing you do seems to get kids settled for bedtime. I’ve been there. In fact, I am the one who’s kids seem to struggle on a nightly basis. One night in particular was a little worse. This past New Year’s Eve, Sophie broke out in a terrible rash and was running a really high fever. The fever started out low the day before, but it spiked this day. She looked so pitiful and like she did not feel good at all, so I quickly called her pediatrician and they recommended I go to a 24 hour doctor’s office (as they were closed). We were there for 4 hours.
My sick (could barely hold her head up) 2 year old had to wait 4 hours to see a doctor. She ended up having strep throat and scarlet fever. The doctor sent her a prescription to our usual pharmacy and by the time we got there, they had closed. I had no idea what to do. It was nearly 11p.m. at this point and I knew I needed to get that medicine in her as soon as possible. I called the doctor office back but they were closed. I started to drive around, not really knowing what to do, when I saw it! Walgreens was OPEN! The drive-thru ws OPEN! I didn’t even have to get out of my car!
I wasn’t sure if they could get her medicine for me, but after talking to the super nice pharmacist, he worked with us to get her perscription and filled it immediately! After frantically driving around after an already exhausting night and a very sick toddler in the back seat, I was so so very thankful! Ever since then, we have used our new preferred pharmacy – Walgreens! They have always been so helpful and are always open. Even more so, they are a pharmacy and retailer who cares.
Now, Walgreens is our one-stop-shop for all things baby! JOHNSON’S® – the brand you trust is now more gentle than ever! JOHNSON’S® baby products have relaunched at Walgreens and I loved their easy-to-find display! As a mom of three under 5, we have gone through a fair share of JOHNSON’S® products over the last several years. It is the #1 choice for hospitals and is now more gentle than ever! A new look from the inside out! There is also a brand new product on the shelves – JOHNSON’S® COTTONTOUCH™ Newborn Wash & Shampoo! It absorbs fast and feels so soft and is great to get kids settled before bedtime!
JOHNSON’S® baby products are 100% gentle and free of paragons and phthalates. They are dye and sulfate free making them worry-free for moms! There are now 50% fewer ingredients with over 90% naturally derived ingredients. I also love that they added the pump top to the bottles making them so easy to use. I already have my hands full enough at bath time! 9 out of 10 parents recommend these simpler and gentler products! JOHNSON’S® continues to evolve with the millennial mom to keep up with the changing needs of mom and baby. They maintain the safest ingredients while staying true to the brand people love and trust.
On a normal night when we are all feeling well but still struggling to get our kids to bed, I have a little routine that really helps! This is something my grandmother actually taught me to do and it really works! When you feel like you can’t get kids settled, try this!
How to Get Kids Settled for Bedtime:
We give the kids a warm soothing bath with our favorite JOHNSON’S® products from Walgreens. This allows them to get some of that late night energy out and they feel good and clean afterwards. Don’t you always sleep better after a good bath? Babies do, too!
Next, I put JOHNSON’S® lotion on them and put their PJs on. We crawl into my bed and read a bedtime story. Sometimes more than one, but we try to choose one a night.
Lastly, I tuck them in bed and if one is not wanting to go to sleep, I lay down with them (lights off) and tell them a story in a soft low voice. Before you know it, they will be snoring! Works every time!
