Which skin products for babies?

Postby megansmummy » Tue May 04, 2010 1:48 pm

I need some more nappy blam/cream for Kieren and also want some kind of powder too...I have looked at the greenbaby stuff they do the nappy blam (which we have atm) and they also do a powder...what else is out there and where do you buy from??

I don't use anything other than in the bath - I don't cream/oil/powder her in anyway.

I like the Little Me organic range and Boots Botanics baby.

I got some diaper dust from Jabula which was really lovely (it is talc free) but I kept forgetting to use it!
Apart from the very odd smear of sudocream I don't use anything on any of our kids skin not even in the bath (well soap for hands obv!)

I was going to ask this.
What kind of shampoo do you all use too?
I wanted something for the girls bath too.

i use johnsons lavender and camomile shampoo/bodywash in the bath....sudo crem at nappy changes and cocoa butter on ethans skin after his bath....ethan had realy dry skin when he was younger and out of pure desperation i tried cocoa butter when my mixed race friend suggested it....its been brilliant for him and he gets creamed up after every bath now...he smells good enough to eat too lol.

ive been lucky with ethan as rienna was allergic to lanolin and lots of things so i couldnt use very much on her skin at all :)

The boys use Loreal Kids shampoo (or the supermarket own equivalent), and Freya has Dentinox cradle cap shampoo once or twice a week, and head-to-toe wash the rest of the time.

We use the Green People's stuff. The nappy balm where needed (fab stuff- works better than metanium on Ryan!) and the body wash for bathtimes. And the suncream! :)

Also like the Earth Friendly Baby/Kids bubble bath for a treat :)

Earth Angel Baby diaper rash salve for nappy rash but TBH have very rarely had to use anything. For bubble bath/shampoo etc - Ewe Need It, Green Baby, Earth Friendly baby and sometimes Northern Essence here. Johnsons is awful stuff, full of nasty chemicals that all of mine react to.

We just use "adult" natural shampoo, so Faith in Nature on the go atm, with some Duchy Organics conditioner that I found cheap in TKMaxx.
