Everything I’ve learned thus far has been from other mamas. And my go to mama has been my friend and client, Meagan Londy. When I was in my first trimester, I was photographing her sweet baby Vivienne and asking tons of questions, “How am I going to do all of this? Am I cut out to be a mom? What if my baby isn’t as good as Vivienne? How will I juggle work?” Meagan was so honest with me about her own ambivalence about being a mama during her pregnancy and how her heart changed once Vivi arrived. When Ramona was born, she cheered me on and lended me her breast pump during my breast feeding saga (you can read more about that here). She has been a wealth of knowledge for me, from swimming schools to the very product I’m reviewing today–a bath oil for Colorado babies.
Bath time is an integral part of our nighttime routine. Ramona loves the bath and it soothes her before sleep. Unfortunately, living in a desert environment, Ramona has dried up like a little lizard and I didn’t want to bathe her anymore because of her sensitive skin. So when I went to Meagan’s house to photography Vivienne’s 1st birthday photos, I asked what she used, as Vivienne had the same problem with bath time and dry skin. Alpha Keri Bath and shower oil is the answer. So, because Meagan can do no wrong, I bought the oil and started using it in Ramona’s bath last week. It’s actually quite amazing. Incredibly moisturizing, it even works with eczema! It has a nice light fresh fragrance and is the most beautiful azure blue. I ordered mine on Amazon.com. I’m a bath product snob, and I’ll keep buying this–it may save bath time and allow us to go back to a bath every night… Thanks again, Meagan!
