One of the biggest challenges that parents of small (and sometimes big) children have is getting them to sleep at night. As parents we’ll try various methods until either something will work, or our kids will just tire themselves out and fall asleep. Creating a calming atmosphere before bedtime often helps. I found that lavender has a calming effect and can help tone things down in the evening hours, which is why I love Basq’s It’s a Small World collection – it contains lavender, among many other wonderful ingredients.

A collaboration with Disney, this line is specifically tailored for mom and baby and features lotions and sprays that are paraben, phthalate and animal testing-free. All of the products are also hypoallergenic.
I sampled the “Touch Lavender Body Butter”. This luxurious lotion has a scent that is so gentle and delicate – it won’t overwhelm your baby. Some of the ingredients are shea butter, borage seed oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba butter and rosehip oil.
I also sampled the “Dream Lavender Sleep Mist”. This is a spray you can use all over the house but the nursery or bedroom are the ideal spots. It doesn’t leave any residue, just a delicious scent and it’s also great to use when you have guest coming over and want the house to smell clean.
You can buy the Body Butter here for $26.00 and the Sleep Mist here for $20.00. Click here for more products from the line.
I’m expecting a baby any day now and I can’t wait to try these out on him or her! If they don’t make the baby fall asleep easily, at least I’ll have a terrific-smelling baby…
I was not compensated for this post. I received samples for review purposes.
