    I love bathing Amy - she's almost 20 months now and she loves it aswell. I always use put cream or a bit of talc on her afterwards, not really because she needs it, more because I love the smell of a baby thats just been bathed :blush: Trouble is, it never seems to last long any more, not like when she was a tiny baby.

    And then I remembered back when I had my first baby (she's 10 now) somebody knit her some cardigans and sprayed it with something. Smelt GORGEOUS, bit like talc...ish. I've tried googling it but found nothing other than baby perfumes:shrug: Has anyone else heard of a spray, or seen one?!

    I think it's baby cologne. I use the Johnson's ones. I guess Zara also have baby perfume.

    I don't know of the spray you're thinking of, but to make my LO smell yummy I use lush products on her! :haha:
    I use the soaps and lotions then sit around sniffing her all day! It looks less weird than using them on me and walking around smelling myself all day! :rofl:

    I notice a lot of people say their baby smells like a baby, did I get a faulty one she's never smelled like baby! Not joking either, her smells (that I don't add to her) include food, poo, or nothing at all!

    I use the blue one or the yellow one. Yellow is more girly as it smells like citrus. The blue one smells like Johnson's lotions/ powder.

    I used (and still do sometimes) something called agua de colonia from Spain. It's alcohol free and is made for babies and is used loads over there - I mainly use it if it's warm, it cools her down, or if she wakes up with crazy hair I put a bit on before I comb it.

    I remember a thread on here when Holly was little where somebody asked a similar question and there was a bit of controversy about it - but where I grew up (Spain) it is a totally normal thing to use. Keeps them fresh inbetween showers/baths, cools them down - and smells yummy! If you go out early evening in Spain and you see all the Spanish families all smartly dressed strolling around, I guarantee you that every baby/toddler/child will smell of it :)

    t's not perfume, it's just water with a scent similar to ones that are used in baby powder or lotions. It doesnt have alcohol, & it usually comes as a cologne not even a spray. It's like using a scented fabric softener.

    I dont use powder or lotions on Omar as they have to be used directly on the skin, the cologne is used on the clothes.

    oh wow I've never heard of this before, sounds like a good idea though, especially for out in warmer countries.
