There once was a time, not so long ago, when the word "bubbles" was used strictly in reference to the sparkly goodness that is a cold flute of champs. Today, it is now part of my every day vernacular. Sadly, no, I'm not indulging in a nightly glass of yellow label- ah, dare to dream- but instead, the word now refers to the nightly splashes of my little girl's excited kicks in a warm, bubbly, sweet-smelling bath. Bath time is one of our favorites in our household- lucky for us, MM has loved it since the beginning.

Here are some of the essentials that make bath time so fun {and easy} in our house:

1. Mustela: Love all things Mustela! They smell amazing + keep MM's skin baby soft.

2. Bath Sponge: This whale sponge has been a bath time staple from the start.

3. Puj: I've raved about this before, but I can't say it enough- perfect for itty bitty babes during their first bath times.

4. Hermes Bath Towel: OK - not a necessity; but this is the softest towel I have ever felt. I need one in mommy's size!

5. 4 Moms Infant Tub: A great tub to transition to once the little one outgrows the Puj.

6. 4 Moms Spout Cover: This nifty gadget both covers the water spout while measuring the temperature with an easy to read screen. An adjustable strap makes it easy to secure.

7. Shampoo Rinse Cup: Perfect for rinsing away those scalp suds while avoiding any tears.

8. Rubber Duckies: Because bath time.

9. Aden + Anais Wash Clothes: Just as soft as their swaddles- perfect for washing away the remnants of baby's first sweet potatoes + carrots.
