Babies have many reasons to be fussy and some common causes are teething, over-tiredness, emotional upset or pain. And, sometimes it's frustratingly difficult to figure out what's upsetting a baby, but he or she is making it very clear that something is! A soothing bath or a gentle massage is a great way to calm a fussy baby. AVEENO® Baby™ CALMING COMFORT® Bath and AVEENO® Baby™ CALMING COMFORT® Lotion combine soothing baby care regimens with the age-old art of aromatherapy.
Scented baths have been used from time immemorial — at least as long ago as ancient Egypt — to make babies and adults feel better. Essential oils taken from flowers, fruits, and herbs act with the warm water to soothe away cares and discomfort. Our CALMING COMFORT® line of baby bath products contain lavender and vanilla — two ingredients known for their relaxing effects — plus natural oatmeal to gently care for baby's delicate skin.
