Adding Magnesium Sleep Lotion Junior from Better You to our nightly routine {review}

We've been very fortunate with bed time routines since Dylan was still a toddler. It's almost stayed the same since then too. He's great at going to bed and having a bed time story, going to sleep is a different matter entirely. He would often stay awake for an hour or two after bedtime and read stories or play with a toy in his bed. When Better You got in contact with us about trying their Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion I thought it could be what we've been looking for. 

Better You is a natural health company which specialise in the supplementing of key nutrients that are being lost through our modern diet and lifestyles. They create a range of products that support a healthy, balanced diet to cover all the nutrients your body needs. Better You believe that food comes first and their supplements will help fill in the missing gaps your diet doesn't. Each product in the Better You range has been extensively researched and tested. They believe that the proof is in the science and rightly so since science proves their products actually work, plus they are the most effective on the market. 


We've been testing out the Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You for the last couple of weeks. It is recommended for use with children over the age of one which makes it perfect for us to use with both Dylan and Scarlet. This lotion is made with magnesium chloride, lavender and chamomile to help soothe and relax your child's body. With the purpose of aiding your child's natural tiredness to send them softly off to sleep. These three ingredients are chosen for their natural ability to help the mind slow and relax in a natural way. 


The Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You comes in a bottle with a pump action lid which makes applying much easier. It also means you can accurately measure out how much you need with ease. Each night up to 30 minutes before bed you need to apply 4 pumps and massage into to skin. the four pumps will equal 5ml of lotion which will deliver a minimum of 37mg of elemental magnesium. I do find that when it's first applied the four pumps of sleep lotion seems to be too much and it leaves the skin feeling a little wet to the touch. However after five minutes it's been completely absorbed by the skin which is the products design. 


We've been applying our Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You when Dylan and Scarlet are getting into their pyjamas. We spend the next fifteen minutes reading our bedtime story and singing a little song.   I have found that when it's first applied the four pumps of sleep lotion seems to be too much and it leaves the skin feeling a little wet to the touch, especially on Scarlet who has much less skin to cover. However after five minutes it's been completely absorbed by the skin which is the intention of trans dermal magnesium which is the foundation of the Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion. 

Over the last couple of weeks we've tested the Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You at various strengths. At first I was sceptical that it would make much of a difference, I have been proved wrong entirely. Since we started using the sleep lotion from Better You Dylan is asleep within half an hour of us leaving the room at bedtime. He settles better himself and will lay in bed without getting out to find a toy or book. It's been such a turn around from when we hadn't used a lotion! 

 I did try reducing the amount we used to two pumps and we tried it at four mainly with Scarlet since she is smaller. I will say that there is a huge difference in the effectiveness if we reduced the amount we used. I found that by just leaving Scarlet to run around in her nappy while we got our story read and prepared for bedtime then it would absorb completely before I tried to add her pyjamas on top. Since the Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You is a natural sleeping aid it helped Scarlet to drift off without the worry of her not waking at her usual times.We're still breastfeeding which can mean she will wake 2 or 3 times in a night for a feed which is natural for her. I do think the sleep lotion has helped her to settle a little easier right through the night which isn't mentioned on the bottle but I'll take it! 

I've been really surprised at the effectiveness of the Junior Magnesium Sleep Lotion from Better You. It's a fantastic addition to any child's bedtime routine and can easily be incorporated with ease. If your looking for a product that will help your child to settle down and relax at bedtime then this is the one you need.
