If lavender makes your list of approved scents, I can recommend the Soothing Baby Oil from Natty Baby, a charitably minded company that makes a nice line of natural bath products for wee tots which are all handcrafted in small batches. The lavender in the Baby Oil is blended with other essential oils like mandarin orange and apricot. But I promise, it doesn’t smell like a fruit salad – it just smells calming and delish. And I’m not the only one who thinks so.
After trying it out on my own legs and arms, my bulldog followed me around the house like a lovesick puppy, slurping at my limbs at every opportunity.
Canine owning moms: You will love Natty Baby’s baby oil. But you might want to make sure the dog is well-fed before actually slathering it on the baby. –Liz
