Now, I know what you’re thinking – what do you, Olivia, know about nappy rash treatments? You don’t have any tots running around your ankles – you’re a fraud, a fraud I tells ya!
Well first off, ouch, that hurts me – and secondly, it seems like everyone around me is being blessed with a bub lately. There’s my cousin, my friend’s sister and my own colleague Tara – to name just a few. And rather than shower them with even more totally adorable onesies, just like everyone else, I thought my gift could be to put my beauty roots to good use and ensure they make the right choices when it comes to products for their bub.
So I took a closer look at one of the biggest issues for infants: nappy rash – the sore, itchy, irritating problem that has tots all anxious (and mums even more so). With bh’s own mummy members to guide me, I’ve compiled a list of solutions that will result in smoother skin and less tears from bub, and more sleep and peace of mind for mum. What better gift is there to give? I’m hard pressed to think of one.
Check out what members had to say about these nappy rash treatments:
Natural Instinct Soothing Nappy Rash Cream
“One time my daughter had more severe nappy rash and by morning it was almost gone! This product is fantastic and it really delivers. It also smells nice, unlike most nappy rash creams, and it is free from nasty chemicals.
It is reasonably priced and a little goes a long way, so this bottle will last quite a while. I love that it is in a pump bottle so it is easy to dispense and isn’t messy.” – Mzluvinkhim
“I am a huge fan of the Purist range and have used a number of the A’kin skincare line and Al’chemy hair care line, so it was only natural that I wanted to try the baby line on my little ones. The bottom balm contains certified organic shea butter, zinc oxide, vitamin E and pro vitamin B5. This is great to use to soothe baby’s nappy rash. It seems to calm the skin and helps clear the rash within a few days.” – Beauty Obsession
Urban Rituelle Mumma & Bubba Organics Calm Balm
“On my toddler it is used as a nappy barrier balm and on irritated areas such as around the nose when he has a cold. It smells gorgeous and is very gentle. Perfect for soothing irritations and protecting precious skin. It is perfectly presented in a gorgeous container and box. What a treat!” – JaneyPooh
