      Before I had my first baby I did what most new parents do and went shopping. Along with buying a crib, a stroller and diapers I also bought the start up bath set that Johnson and Johnson offers for babies. It has their trademark Johnson and Johnson baby lotion in the pink bottle, baby oil, baby shampoo, baby bath soap in lavender, safety q-tips and a bath toy. Since these were all designed for babies I figured it would be a good purchase.

        At first my hands and legs felt great right after I put the baby lotion on. Shortly thereafter my hands and legs actually felt even more dry than before I put the lotion on. I have since stopped using the baby lotion all together. Now, if it dried my adult skin out, I don’t want to think what it would do to a baby’s skin.

        bath set is made in China. I am a little paranoid about things for my child that come from China after all of the health scares with toys. So I haven’t let my baby see the toy at all.

        I could have saved myself some money by not purchasing the bath set and just buying the baby shampoo and safety q-tips alone. My suggestion to anybody who is about to have a baby is to not get roped into buying these starter sets of things before researching whats in them. It will save you money and avoid waste in the end.
