I was lucky enough to be sent over the Sleepy Feet Foot oil from Mummy Loves Organics, which is an item I was keen to try as we are going through the horrible teething period.
It is made from Mandarin, Frankincense, English Lavender and a fabulous Roman Chamomile which as you can imagine smells exceptional! To use you just apply to the souls of babies feet, behind their ears and their temples and gently massage in. Each bottle lasts approximately 2 months and can be purchased directly from the Mummy Loves Organic website for £12. Please note this product is recommended for babies 12 weeks and over.
So the question you’re all probably wondering is does it actually help? Well, my baby girl has definitely been sleeping for longer periods during the night however she has been fighting her sleep and not going down till around half 9 (2 hours letter than her usual bedtime) so it hasn’t been of much assistance in that department. I do enjoy making it a part of her bedtime routine though. The smell of the oil is beautiful and she enjoys me rubbing it into her feet and giving them a little massage after the bath. I guess it is worth a try if you’re having trouble anyway with bedtime routines, but I am interested to see the impact once the teething terrors have settled.
Let me know how you get on if you do try the sleepy oil out or if this is something you’re already using.
