Our Gerber Childrenswear Bath Time Fun Review

I love Gerber Childrenswear.  Clara has several of their cutie-patootie sleep-n-plays.  I am a mom who strives for comfort during the first year versus phoo-phoo.  I think the baby’s cuteness speaks for itself, so my babies live and breathe in cotton onesies and sleep-n-plays.  Gerber is right up my alley since their bodysuits and sleep-n-plays hold up well in the wash and fit just the way they should.  But they aren’t just practical; Gerber has baby-friendly designs, bright colors, and cheerful motifs on all of their clothing.  I also like that they offer a line of sleep-n-plays with zippers.

Gerber also has bath time all wrapped up.  Their four-piece bath set is perfect for a baby. Their terry hooded towels are great for snuggling baby up after a nice warm bath.  Just like the sleep-n-plays, it is cuteness combined with utilitarianism at its finest.  I love the embroidery on the hood of each towel.  The hooded towels come in great colors.  My Clara just has to have PINK, though… and plenty of flowers!

Each towel is made of terry cloth that is stretchy enough that you can swaddle the baby in the towel if your baby needs that extra security.  The edges are bound in a soft knit fabric.  There is nothing itchy or irritating about these towels.  Baby’s sensitive skin will love the softness of these towels.

Gerber also has the softest washcloths just for babies.  Again, that super-soft, super-stretchy terrycloth that baby will love to hold and feel against her skin.

Of course, Gerber coined the phrase onesies, so they are my go-to brand for onesies.  They don’t stretch out around the neck like other brands, and they are good thick cotton that doesn’t stain too badly with all that spit up!

Gerber has receiving blankets, burp cloths, bodysuits, and even cloth diapers. Of course, if you want organic, Gerber has you covered in that department too.  So, when you think of Gerber, don’t just think about baby food; check out their incredible line of children’s wear at  They also have a Real Mom Community, lots of tips, and a place to find out about current promotions on their Facebook page.

Bath Time Tips from Gerber Childrenswear

Tip #1

Bath time isn’t all about getting clean.  It’s also about having fun and bonding with your baby.

  • Set a time every night that is just for bathing, so you and the baby stay on schedule.  That’s important early on!
  • Bath time can also be a wonderful daddy/baby bonding experience after a long day at work.  You’ll look forward to it and so will be baby!
  • Make sure you have all your bath time essentials within reach before starting so you can give the baby all your attention:  bath wash, washcloths, hooded towels, Onesies brand one-piece underwear, sleepwear, gowns, cap, and booties.

We’ve got you covered for bath time!

Tip #2

Establish a bedtime routine with your baby.

Your baby will feel more relaxed, likely to go to bed easier, and fall asleep more quickly if you establish a nightly routine from the time she arrives home.  Bathing a newborn baby is very soothing, so making it a part of the bedtime ritual is important.  Be sure to have all your Gerber essentials within arms reach during and after the bath:

  • Washcloths for cleaning
  • Hooded towel to swaddle them when done and keep the chill-out
  • Sleep ‘n play outfits to easily slip on and keep them cozy warm all night long

Once you are done with the bath, diaper change, and dressing, it’s now storytime in the nursery rocking chair.  You’ll soon find that bedtime is a special time for parents to create that special bond with their baby.
