Is it wierd that I still put baby lotion on my 4 and 7 year old?

It is part of our bedtime routine, they are both actually learning to put it on themselves, my 7 year old more accurately then my 4 year old. Usually I put some in their hands let them do it, then follow up to smooth it out, and get any spots they miss. Does anyone else still do this for their older kids?

  • No, its not weird at all. It smells good and is good for thier skin..especially during the winter months with dry skin and all.

  • I still do this too. Granted, we don't use baby lotion, just regular Vaseline dry skin stuff, but it keeps their skin so soft and moisturized. I've always moisturized after showering and so it just seemed natural for me to do this with my daughters as well.

  • baby lotion smells good and it should bother their skin. I think it is great, the more you do it, the better their skin will be in the long run

  • My kids put lotion on, or I put it on for them but not J&J baby lotion. I can't stand the smell. In my house, everyone uses AveenoBaby Soothing Relief Moisture Cream - even me.
