Swimming pools, baby spas and Huggies Pure
One of the biggest revelations from our holiday was just how much both my children took to the water.
Although she was hesitant at first, once armed with her trusty Auuuna and Elsa Frozen swimming ring, Eliza would only get out of the pool to jump straight back in.
Florence loved crawling around the baby area and was transfixed by the water fountain. And investigating the drain, because clearly that’s what babies do.
While we were by the pool, my fellow Huggies Ambassadors were having some water-based fun of their own at an exclusive baby hydrotherapy spa in London. The babies had gentle water flotation and massage treatments and their mums later learned all about the re-launch of Huggies Pure wipes (you might have heard about the spa; it’s where babies wear floatation devices around their necks. It looks slightly alarming at first but is incredibly relaxing for them).
The Pure wipes have been remade with a brand new formulation that’s designed to leave your baby’s skin feeling clean and healthy. They’re also made with naturally absorbent fibres and are free from parabens, alcohol and all the nasty chemicals.
Did you know all this means the Pure wipes are actually safe to use from birth? I hadn’t realised this (and it would have saved a lot of faffing with cotton wool or the water-only wipes, especially second-time round).
When I was approached to work with Huggies it was a no-brainer for me as it’s the wipe brand we’ve always used, and Pure is our wipe of choice. One of the big things for me is the texture of baby wipes, and I much prefer the softer texture of Huggies to most other ones I’ve tried. Plus, of course, they do they job well.
I was sad to miss catching up with my fellow Huggies Ambassadors, and the spa sounds really relaxing and great fun. But following our holiday I’m washing away my wave of swimming guilt and taking my two water babies to our local pool next week. Do your children love swimming (or spas?!)
Thanks to Huggies for working with me. I’ll be posting more about launches and new products over the next few months. Find out more about Huggies here.
