If you are a parent, you know raising kids is hard. It’s no walk in the park, and anyone who says it is a bundle of joy 24-7 is lying through their teeth. This is especially true when you are raising two small children in their toddler years.
Despite their cuteness, they will use their cute little voices to demand you to do this and demand you to do that. Throw a fit because you gave them the wrong color cup or the wrong episode of My Little Pony came on TV.
You didn’t know you could ruin someone’s day by just suggesting they should put some clean clothes on, did you? Well, you totally can.
You never know what will make them go from cute and adorable to red-faced scream crying. Emotionally unstable little dictators I tell you!
Not only do you have to deal with the fun, draining logic of small children you get to deal with sibling rivalry when you have two.
It’s a blast! Totally isn’t.
You get to hear things like “I don’t want her touching that”and “He looked at me weird”. You can’t do anything for one without the other one taking offense to it.
It’s completely exhausting!
So anyone that stays at home taking care of their children deserves a medal! I think it’s WAY harder than going to work and definitely more emotionally stressful. That’s why I came up with this care package for moms (It’s WAY more practical than a medal, right?) – this way mom can maybe take in a little time for herself and de-stress before heading back to the front lines.
Destress (and Relax) Care Package Idea
When you are a parent it is very hard to get in some me time. That’s because your children are always there demanding your attention. You can’t go to the bathroom alone and that’s pretty personal. So forget about me time unless your children are asleep.
That’s where JOHNSON’S® Baby products come in:
- JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Baby Bath with Soothing Aromas
- JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Lotion
- JOHNSON’S® Calming Shampoo
In a hurry to destress? Hover over the image below to shop online right now!
These products are new and improved (inside and out!), and are perfect lulling your little ones to sleep. I remember having JOHNSON’S® products used on me when I was little, and then I used them on my boys. It’s a sweet kind of nostalgia that I’d like to be passed on to other mother’s.
And it makes for a great bedtime routine to have, too. A nice warm bath with JOHNSON’S® Bedtime Baby Bath (and Calming Shampoo), then a gentle massage (with Bedtime Lotion), and some quiet time before sending them beddy-bye.
This bedtime routine clinically proven to help your baby fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Mom win!
Now with 50% fewer ingredients and 100% gentle (free of parabens and phthalates), there’s no excuse not to use JOHNSON’S® baby products to help your little ones be clean and fresh, and GO TO SLEEP.
I conveniently snagged these at CVS. I love being able to run in and quickly grab almost anything I need without fighting a crowd! Cause we all know shopping with kids can make you want to pull your hair out sometimes.

Other Items in the Destress Care Package
The first (and most important) step was getting a chance to actually have me time to destress (i.e. getting the kiddos to bed) but the rest of the care package is all about de-stressing mom.
There are a ton of other products you can include in a Destress (and Relax) Care Package. Just try and think from that mommy’s point of view and what would help them destress the most. I included the following for my sweet friend:
- a scalp massager because she loves getting her hair washed at the salon
- a body massager because she loves a good massage
- a manicure gift kit (nail polish, file/buffer, toe separators) because she’s a fan of pedicures
- a soothing candle because it gives the perfect ambiance for relaxing
And her favorite go-to drink wouldn’t hurt either, I’m sure 😉
Is there someone in your life that could use a Destress (and Relax) Care Package like this? Stop by your local CVS Pharmacy, grab JOHNSON’S® baby products, and get that mom some much deserved me time!
