Earth Mama - Angel Baby
Angel Baby Bottom Balm
Organic Herbal Diaper/Nappy Rash & First Aid Salve

Found this! It's expensive at £11, but Jack's bum was so sore it was bleeding again - 2 days later and there is not a mark there now!!! I recommend this. It's fabulous and you only need a tiny bit.

Sounds like amazing stuff Ruth!

(EDIT)*http://www.theremustbeabetterway.co.uk/Products/Baby_&_Child/Organic_Nappy_Rash_Salves_&_Creams.htm

Just watch out as st-john's wort is a natural anti-depressant and I'm not sure how well it goes into the bloodstream from the skin and can contrindicate some medications (e.g. the pill - obviously not a baby concern but you might use it on yourself!)

Also St.John's wort makes your skin photosensitive (prone to sunburn basically) so if you use it on bumps and scrapes be extra vigilant...

(edit:originally I looked this up on the US site which didn't have the full listing, however the site above does)

I'm naturally suspicious of anything that doesn't give a full ingredients listing - does the jar have a full listing?

Hehehe no it won't make him sad Ruth!!

Thanks for the listing :)

Having taken st.john's wort in the past and had a whole bunch of warnings about it I'm probably a little over cautious!! :D

Just done a quick google (very very quick mind) and it seems st.john's wort is excellent for wound healing and has excellent anti-inflamatory properties...

Only bad things I can find are listed as for those taking it as a pill...

Will try and do some more digging to reassure myself but I'm sure it will be fine (they'd have to warn you if not!!) and I'm just being paranoid as usual...

I'd still watch the sun thing tho'...

Tory - well pointed out thank you!! Anti depressant of course!!! Looking forward to the new topic - I think I will be on there a lot!

Steph - sun won't matter if it's on there bum though! Unless Isabelle likes to stick her naked bottom in the air when she is out and about!!!! :wink: But I can see why you would be worried about it on cuts and grazes. excellent for bums though!
