Being in love with the sweet and giggling scent of a baby is all but a natural phenomenon to people like us, especially with the moms who hold their babies close to them at all times. But that notion changes as they grow older and become an active baby to come in closer contact with the environment.
Now that you see your toddlers running and playing around from every corner of your home or the playground or just wherever you place them because it’s in their nature to be playful at all times, you get that concern that matters to keeping them clean and smelling fresh all day. But, it is inevitable that these cuties won’t get in contact with dirt, they will perspire a lot and often develop a stinky body odour that becomes a barrier in developing their confidence in the long run.
As a parent, if you noticed your child develops an odour even with a good hygiene routine, then it could be something to be concerned about. So here are some of our carefully researched #chubibitips that could help you in keeping your active baby smelling fresh all day!
