Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber Review

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know how much trouble we went through to get Joseph to sleep through the night. He had stomach issues, so for the first 7 months of his life he woke every two hours. He's finally sleeping through the night, but often takes time to settle down, which is why I was excited to hear about Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber products.

Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber is a line of natural bedtime products for infants, designed to help enhance quality sleep for little ones. The line includes a 3-in-1 Body Wash, Massage Cream, and Calming bedroom mist. Each of the three products contain natural botanical ingredients such as English Lavender Oil, German Chamomile Extract and Yylang Yylang Flower Oil. The best part for me is that they are hypo-allergenic and contain no artificial fragrances, gluten, soy, alcohol, sulfates, phthalates or parabens. My kids inherited my sensitive skin and eczema, so I need products with gentle ingredients and these fit the bill. 

When I received  the products, I set aside a night to give all three a try. First I spritzed the bedroom with the calming mist. The smell was subtle and not overwhelming, which I love. And now that I've used it every night for a few weeks, it's a calming and familiar scent for my kids. The Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber Mist retails for $5.99 for a 3.25 fl oz bottle and is available at Walgreens.
Next I gave the kids a bath and washed them both with the Baby Wash. I was only going to use it for Joseph, since Stephanie isn't really a baby anymore, but she insisted on using it too. Again, the scent was light and not overbearing, and it's tear-free which is great for Joseph who refuses to keep his head back when I rinse his shampoo out. It worked very effectively as a shampoo, body wash and bubble bath, and didn't irritate their sensitive skin. I love the ease of having all three in one bottle too! The Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber baby wash retails for $7.99 for an 11.75 fl oz bottle and is available at Walgreens.
Lastly, I used the massage cream when bath time was over. (Again, Stephanie insisted on using it too, and now "Massage time!" is part of our nightly routine.) The massage cream was gentle and nourishing and left my kids' skin soft and moisturized  It also made my hands feel soft and not at all greasy, which meant I didn't feel the urge to wash it off my hands like I do for many lotions. The Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber massage cream retails for $6.99 for an 8.25 fl oz bottle and is available at Walgreens.

I highly recommend each of  these products! They have been a great addition to our bedtime routine, and I love that they don't contain any icky stuff. We all have sensitive skin but haven't suffered any irritation from the Mommy's Bliss Sweet Slumber products. The calm, soothing scent is an indicator to all of us that it's bedtime, and using it as part of our nightly routine helps us all settle down at the end of the day. 

*I received products for the purpose of this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. oooooh I use a roll-on mix of essential oils on my wrist when I go to bed, I may have to check out the spray for the kids' rooms. Great idea!

  2. LOVE THIS!! i might get the mist & lotion for my girls, even though they aren't babies anymore. I used to love the nighttime calming scented stuff for them as babies, but all the chemicals also concerned me back then so i stopped using them. This is a perfect solution and i also highly recommend using calming aromas with a bedtime routine. It totally works!!!

  3. My kids have always had trouble sleeping, of course ADD/ADHD runs rampant in our family. I should try this with Stella. I think Maizie and Teddy are past the point of no return.

  4. Sounds absolutely lovely! I would probably want to use them on myself - I could use help sleeping ;)

  5. Those look like awesome products!! I love the idea of the massage cream-- I will pick some up! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Sleep - the Holy Grail of parenthood! Working with families of newborns, it's always a hot topic! What a nice thing to add to your bedtime routine!

  7. I wish I could make a massage a nightly routine for ME! I totally get what you mean about wanting to wash lotion off after putting it on. I hate that greasy feeling.

  8. Love this! I feel relaxed just thinking about it! But seriously, thanks for sharing, I love learning about more natural products and I am big on aromatherapy!

  9. Looks like a great product! Everyone in our family loves massages!!!
