Bathing your new baby with JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE™

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post; all opinions are my own.

As a new mom, I remember giving my baby her first bath as a scary time. That is until the nurse showed me how to hold her while wiping away milk and anything else needed to clean my daughter. As nervous as I was, it was a magical time and a great opportunity for bonding. I remember the hospital having JOHNSON’S® baby products for us to use on our new babies. Within no time, I could bathe my baby with ease and was very comfortable doing so. With each bath, she grew to love the water more and more. I grew more confident in my parenting and we both became closer.

By the time my fourth child was born, I felt like an expert when giving the baby a bath. Holding them, washing them and even shampooing their hair seemed to come more naturally to me. I was also grateful for the great product I was using with each one of them— just as my mother used with me, I was washing my babies with JOHNSON’S®. Their No More Tears® formula was something I knew I could trust with my newborn. All through the baby stages, JOHNSON’S® was there for my family. My children’s sensitive skin welcomed their gentle formulas and I loved that JOHNSON’S® baby smell.

Introducing JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE line

As you know, every baby’s skin is different, which is why JOHNSON’S® creates different products to meet different needs. JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE Extra Moisturizing line is good for babies with newborn skin, while the HEAD-TO-TOE baby lotion nourishes and moisturizes baby’s delicate skin from day one. And, when a traditional bath isn’t an option, the new washcloths help parents give baby an overall bath from top to bottom—no tub or water required

Today’s families are constantly evolving, just like our understanding of what’s best for baby. That’s why JOHNSON’S® is always challenging themselves to create new products that you can trust, which not only meet baby’s needs, but are gentle, safe and enhance your time with baby.

My youngest is no longer in the baby stages, however we still turn to JOHNSON’S® for her sensitive skin. I love the light scent and how it makes her skin feel. It is great to be able to use a brand my mom trusted on me with my children so many years later. When it is time for me to be a grandma, I know my children too, will trust JOHNSON’S®. The new HEAD-TO‐TOE line is a great addition to the JOHNSON’S® family of products.

The line includes JOHNSON’S® HEAD‐TO‐TOE baby wash, HEAD‐TO‐TOE Extra Moisturizing baby wash, HEAD‐TO‐TOE Extra Moisturizing baby cream and baby lotion, as well as washcloths (wipes).

JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE products are hypoallergenic, paraben- and phthalate-free and designed to provide safe, gentle care for your newborn from the very first day.

If you know a new parent looking for a great product for their baby, share with them your experience with JOHNSON’S®. These bottles also make great gifts for baby showers. Just add in some towels and a sleeper, and you will have everything you need for a gift for baby.

  1. We had Johnson’s baby wash/shampoo when Tee was a baby too! Those wipes are a great idea. I can think of lots of time a bath isn’t a good idea (or practical).

  2. This is a gentle and reliable product we used many years ago and in fact I know my Mom had it around for years too. Not sure how old this brand is but I think we might have been washed with it too. Loved the smell of these sweet baby products.

  3. Florence Cochrane says

    I remember using the no more tears Shampoo on my kids.

  4. Is it weird I kinda miss having that distinct baby shampoo smell in our bathroom?? lol We were BIG fans of No More Tears when needed. ?

  5. We’re huge fans of Johnson’s Baby Head – to – toe. I love the smell and how soft it makes my boy’s skin. In fact, I just used the lotion on my own hands that seem to be consistently dry…

  6. Such an iconic smell – the smell of childhood! Love that you can use it on any age to make your skin feel great.

  7. Their products irritated my young baby’s skin. Things improved quickly after we stopped using their products. I later found out about EWG’s skin deep website which rates beauty products based on their safety / toxicity levels, that J&J’s baby products don’t get a green light rating, their are many irritants and even parabens (carcinogenic) in their products. I wouldn’t recommend them.

  8. I liked Johnson’s products for my babies. Love the regular scent & I also used to use a purple one.. I think it was lilac. Love those baby smells 🙂

  9. I was so stressed .I remember asking the nurse to show me how to wash my babies and totally used this brand too.

  10. You just gave me a great idea about a nice baby shower gift involving a Johnson’s bottle and some baby linens and a sleeper. Who doesn’t love Johnson’s? And the smells – oh the yummy smells 🙂

  11. Head to Toe is great stuff. I always used it with my kids. It did a great job and it really IS no tears.

  12. Claudia Krusch says

    We have been using JOHNSON’S baby products since my Son was born. He is a teenager now and still asks for it. We have sensitive skin and it never leaves my skin feeling irritated.

  13. Johnson’s baby products were my go to soaps when my kids were younger! I loved how clean and fresh they smelted! It is a great product!

  14. I used Johnson’s baby bath products with all three of my kids and they always worked well to clean and protect their sensitive skin. Those new washcloth wipes seem especially handy.

  15. Johnson’s is such a classic brand and it’s incredibly to see them continue on after all these years. Head-to-Toe seems like a great bathtime product!

  16. It has been quite a while since I have bathed a baby but these all sound as though they are amazing products. Just reading your post reminds me of how good babies smell.

  17. All my kids grew up on Johnson’s. I love the smell of their products. I so miss my children being infants now 🙂

  18. This makes me want to run out and get some for myself! My mother used Johnston’s and I did as well. I am sure my kids will too if they ever have babies of their own.

  19. I love Johnson and Johnson products!! I have some Head to Toe lotion for myself and it’s one of the best lotions I have ever used!!

  20. My kids grew up using Johnson’s top to toe wash. They loved the lather and loved how clean and fresh smelling they were after their bath.

  21. We love Johnson’s! They are such an amazing brand and one of the few that I will trust with my family!! PS – love the cutie in the tub with the suds!

  22. I have not tried this specific product yet but I love their products. They smell so good!

  23. I have always loved the smell of johnsons, especially the pink baby lotion. I still use it as an adult.

  24. Bonnie Gowen says

    We used this brand as well when the babies were in the hospital. Just like everyone else has mentioned it has the pleasant scent.

  25. Johnson’s baby products works wonders with newborn babies and I love the smell it gives off. Giving your child their first bath would totally be scary but thankfully the nurse was there to help you.

  26. I only used Johnson’s baby products for my son when he was a baby. All of their baby products smell so good. Now I’m nostalgic. 🙂

  27. I loved using Johnson & Johnson when my kids were little. Now I love to give them as gifts at baby showers and to mom friends with little ones.

    I have only known Johnson and Johnson products. I don’t think it gets much better than that. I recently bought a bunch of these items for my friends baby shower. She was so happy.

  29. Awww, what a cutie! I’ve been using these products for my little one. I love the lotion. Thanks for sharing!

  30. Johnson & Johnson is a timeless brand that we absolutely love. It’s the only brand we’ve ever used for babies.

  31. Babies smell so good when they are nice and clean. Awww. It almost make me want another. Almost. Lol.

  32. I am currently using Cetaphil baby for my infant but I have always loved the way Johnsons smells!

  33. I’m glad J&J is moving to better ingredients. Love that!
