Too Old for Baby Magic??

When are they to old to be washed with Baby Magic and slathered with Johnson’s Baby Lotion? I have used Baby Magic on both of my babies since the day they came home from the hospital. Some folks gave us some of the Johnson’s Baby Wash, but I never liked it as much, and always went back to the Baby Magic. The only pain with Baby Magic is that Kroger & Wal-Mart don't carry it. Target does, but that always means an extra $100 I didn't even know I needed. Nonetheless, it's my favorite and it's all I've ever used. I feel the opposite about the lotion. I do not like the Baby Magic lotion. It seems too watery to me, but I love the creamy Johnson’s Lotion. There’s something about that baby scent that’s almost heavenly. There’s no other scent quite like it, and when you get to experience it in your own home night after night, it’s even better.

All of that being said; I’m still using this baby soap/shampoo and lotion on Grant. He’s just a little over 2 months from turning 4. This approaching birthday seems like a big one to me. So now I ask, when are they too old to be using this stuff? He doesn’t know the difference so he’s not fighting it, and I can’t imagine him smelling fruity or anything else for that matter. Should I just hang on until the big boy in him tells me he’s too old?!

  1. I love the smell of baby lotion. I still use the baby soap and shampoo. I wouldn't really know what to switch them to if I stopped using it. I did stop putting lotion on them when they were probably 2 1/2. I was pregnant with Jackson and that was just one more thing to do. I still put it on Jackson and will as long as he lets me.

  2. my kids shower themselves and put lotion (the pink johnson and johnson)on themselves. So I guess they will quit when they want to. They have dry skin though and they don't like that...they are 4 and 6

  3. when he showers off after football practice in the locker room with a bottle of baby magic, he might get made fun of, but for now i think it's fine :) what he doesn't know won't hurt him! i do love the smell of it so much--it's the best--but i've never been able to use it b/c of my girls' eczema. i say keep on letting him smell like a sweet baby.

  4. I quit putting lotion on Lawton about a year and a half ago - actually Chad did because I couldn't get down and bathe Lawton much being huge and pregnant . . . Santa has brought Lawton some Hot Wheels soap and Cars soap :), but I still grab and use Carolina's soap most of the time!
