Review: Badger Balm Night Night Balm

We don't know if it's the teething or if it's a sleep regression or him learning to crawl or just a phase or what, but lately Jacob has been a really restless sleeper. He doesn't really have a problem going to bed, and it's not often that he wakes up at night, but he moves around and makes SO MUCH NOISE in his sleep.

I know a lot of people suggest including baby massage as part of your bedtime routine. I decided to give it a try, and as usual, turned to Amazon to look for a product that might be able to help us out.

I came across Badger Night Night Balm and decided to order it. 

It comes in a tin as pictured and is a sort of waxy paste - not too oily, not thick either. You rub your fingers around to soften it up. I do that a few times and rub it on Jacob's chest before bed.

It smells really good - lemon balm and chamomile to help with anxiety and stress. I love the smell. Ingredients are all organic.

Product description from Amazon:
Night-Night Balm is a natural Sleep Balm specifically designed with children in mind, to help ease younger minds into the magical realm of the sleep world. For this special kid-friendly formula, we chose essential oils that are known to be especially beneficial for children, helping them unwind naturally after a busy day of learning and growing. Chamomile helps children to be calm and unwind from nighttime activities. Lavender helps children to relax and feel soothed, while Sandalwood instills a feeling of reverence. A safe and natural sleep aid for children (and it works for moms and dads, too)! The perfect addition to any bedtime ritual.

Jacob seems to like it. When I lift up his shirt and start rubbing his fingers in the tin, he's all smiles!

Jacob has been sleeping a little better these days, too! Now if only these teeth would just come in!


  1. So that means it is all safe for the littles? I've been using coconut oil to soften my baby's skin issues, but I haven't tried a good smelling relaxing balm to help him sleep. OH man the teeth!

    1. Hi Julie! My little guy has really had eczema that I can't seem to get rid of. Have you used coconut oil for eczema? I may just run out and buy some tomorrow if so!

  2. oooh thanks for the tip! I've never tried badger balm before and my teething 10 month old is having a hard time sleeping lately!

  3. Thank you for the review. I've never heard of this.

  4. This is definitely something I would be interested in trying since my little guy is not a great sleeper! Thanks for the idea! :D
