I am very lucky in that Aidan doesn’t suffer from nappy rash/ irritation. However, a few weeks ago I did notice he had gotten quite red, which some people say could be his teeth. I will say I kind of panicked, Aidan had never had any redness before so part of me (which I’m sure I get from my mother) wondered if it was a reaction to something. I hadn’t changed anything in his routine lately so finally decided it must have been just a nappy rash. (crisis averted)
When Aidan was younger if would take baths in certain bubble bath or use certain creams & moisturisers he would get extremely dry skin. At one stage I had to bath him in water and emulsifying ointment, which didn’t seem to help him but didn’t make him any worse either. By chance one day in Boots* the Childs Farm range caught my eye. It was their hand & body lotion which initially got my attention ”over 98% natural ingredients & suitable for eczema from newborn” I was sold. The packaging and smell had in me in love there and then. I’ve since used all of their products and just find each one better than the last. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Anyway, I went a bit off topic there. As I was saying Aidan had developed this rash and knowing he has sensitive skin (which you get from me – sorry buddy!) I didn’t know what I should put on it. Luckily, Childs Farm had sent me a brand ambassador goodie bag containing their new nappy cream. I kid you not after one application almost all redness had gone. I wish I had photographic proof but I don’t think Aidan would appreciate that when he is older.
I love the packaging of this product. Not only is it bright, colourful and eye catching it comes in a tube form. Now this may not seem like a big deal to many people but I think it is a lot more hygienic than if it were a pot which you repeatedly put your finger in at nappy changing time.
I too have sensitive skin but can use the Childs Farm range without any irritation. I tried the nappy cream as a face moisturiser and lip balm and now I will never buy lip balm again. It gave me instant hydration.
Don’t believe me? It’s been given a Mumsnet Best badge so I’m not alone.
