While I can rent a lot of baby items or bring a lot of baby gear with me when I travel, there was one item I couldn’t rent or bring: a baby bathtub. It was when I realized the huge benefit of the Gentle All-Over Clean Cleansing Towelettes by MD Moms.
My seven month old and I have done a lot of traveling in her short life: A business trip New York when she was six weeks old to a Disney vacation when she was five months old, and other trip when she was eight months old (and yet another next week.) This, of course, doesn’t include the daily travels we have (grocery store, mall, errands, gym, playgroup).
I give Baby G a bath every night and, when she was especially young, a traditional bathtub was not an option. Too slippery, too dangerous. Plus, she would scream her head off otherwise. So I use a portable bathtub, like this one, but it is most definitely not packable, and hotels don’t offer baby bathtubs. If we are in a hotel, a sponge bath is an option, but there are limited hotel towels and the bathroom was soping wet after we were done. Not something my husband appreciated (or the housecleaning staff.) I also felt like I wasn’t cleaning her very well, so I needed a new solution. It was then I remembered the MD Moms Gentle All-Over Clean Cleansing Towelettes I used for my son when he was a baby.
They are alcohol-free and hypoallergenic. You can use them from “your nose to your toes” as the product states. I especially love the fact that they are made in the USA (yay!) and there is no animal testing.
The added benefit I have found is that the towelettes protected her skin during the winter months. As we go through several extreme cold snaps, her skin got very dry. So we cut back on the nightly baths, and we used the MD Moms Wipes on her non-bath nights to get her clean without the drying effect of water and soap. Even now as summer is upon us, we still have the same routine.
I personally like them for me. When showering is not an option (let’s face it, if you have young kids, that is pretty often) this will do the trick. I throw a Travel Pack in my diaper bag, gym bag or, of course, my suitcase when I head out my travels. Plus, I use them for the moments when my kiddos get pretty dirty on the go (spit up, food spills, dirt from the playground, you name it.)
You can find them everywhere for around $12 for the tub size or about $6 for the travel size. MD Moms also has body wash, lotions and the absolute best Sunscreen Towelettes that, frankly, I could write a whole other post about. They are one of my must-have diaper bag items and my must-have travel item too!
