My doctor told me to be giving my baby a lavender massage before bed. I was a little skeptical that would help so it took me a while to do it. Once I finally started doing it before bed time, it really started helping signal to him it was time to go to bed. I would just mix lavender oil with my baby lotion but decided to try to make my own so I wouldn’t have to grab two bottles.
There are only three ingredients in this lotion which makes it very simple

Mix 1/2 a cup of Shae Butter with 1/2 a cup of coconut oil. I also added in about 20 drops of coconut oil. It didn’t smell extremely strong the first time I put it in the jar but I decided to leave it be for a minute. The smell kind of got stronger over time!
This baby lotion has been one of the best parts of our night time routine. I would highly suggest any one at least try it if they’re having a hard time getting into a routine at night time.
I plan to share a lot more details about our current night time routine for you! i made a few minor changes to transition little Leo out of my bed and into his crib and it was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be! Stay tuned for that <3
