Dial Baby Wash and Hand Soap Review

In my last review of Dial soap I mentioned how Eleanor was loving to wash her hands (which really means play in the water) and I was happy with a soap that I felt comfortable with her using.  And then Dial sent me some soap specifically formulated for kids.  
This girl was thrilled.  Can you tell?  

Foaming soap is my favorite type of soap (as opposed to bar and liquid) and I love soap with a little scent to it.  This water-melon scent is perfect for summertime.  I love that she can learn proper hygiene through the use of this soap. 

We were also sent Dial baby body and hair wash.  I used this as intended - as a wash and there were no issues.  No reactions, etc...  I also used it by pouring it into the bath and making bubbles.  She love loved it this way.  Bubbles in the bath were a new thing so it was fun.   The one thing I kind of wish it had was a scent. It's unscented and I get that's good for some kids with sensitive skin, but I like a little scent to it. 

You can learn more about their products here.

I was provided these products for review.  All opinions are my own.

Dial Soap

 I was provided this product to test for in exchange for a review. All opinions and thoughts are my own. 

Soap isn't exciting.  I've tried several kinds and while I generally like them when they smell good and moisturize my hands, it isn't something I'd run down my street proclaiming my love for.

My latest product that I was able to test is Dial Micro Oil Hand Soap.   It is infused with Marula oil and nourishes and hydrates through micro oil technology.

Although my preference in soap is a foaming soap, I did like this soap.  I thought is had a nice smell to it and it is something I'm comfortable with Eleanor using.  

As with any type of soap, the most important thing, more than smell or style, is if it actually cleans.  This one absolutely does.

548 Days Old!

18 months!  She's officially a year and half.  She's so little still yet so so smart.  Seriously I think multiple times a day how smart she is.  I'm sure lots of 18 month kids are smart but in my mind 18 months seems so young to know or learn something but she does and blows me away.

Still nursing 3 times a day.  I really want to drop the nap time feeding but I'm scared of how that's going to go.  Not ready to entirely wean yet, but I would love to send her to grandma and grandpa's for the night (that's cool right mom?) and can't do that yet.  

She really loves cheese sticks, and mandarins lately.   She doesn't like peanut butter which surprises me.  I thought kids loved it. If I try peanut butter and jelly she will just pick the jelly off.

She liked hummus, although I think she's had that before.

No sleep for me -  but this is her update  not mine.  She is an early riser.  6:15 is sleeping in for her.
 UGH!  So she wakes up super early and usually naps by 11:30.  I have been trying to get her to bed earlier as a result.  She just doesn't need sleep like other kids I guess.  And for the most part she wakes up happy.

New Skills
Not consistently yet, but she can match her shoes up.

She's also getting better at following commands.  We were sitting in the living room and she wanted to go outside so I told her to go to her room and get some socks.  A minute later she came back into the living room with socks.  So she walked down the hall into her room, opened the sock drawer, got a pair, and came back out.  

She's climbing up onto anything she can.  Thankfully she's pretty good at getting back down.

New Words
A lot of her words may not sound like words to other people but I know what she is saying so that counts to me as a word so I'm listing it. There are a few that she may have said before, but I can't remember. 

  • water
  • car
  • tractor
  • dance
  • poop (she says this anytime she poops/farts)
  • potty
  • comb
  • shoes
  • socks
  • coat
  • out
  • toot toot -This is her trying to say tweet tweet.  She says it anytime she sees a bird. 
  • eye
  • mail man 


She LOVES to dance with Rob, and only Rob.  I can try to get her to dance with me but it's not the same thing.  She will pull Rob into the living room or go over by the radio/ipod dock and say 'dance' so we turn the music on. 

She loves loves loves to be outside.  Seriously.  She will constantly grab her shoes and coat and say out out out. The first time I let her walk on the sidewalk she was so ecstatic. However, she hates hates the grass.  If she falls she will put her hands up and whine until she get's help.
