I was so worried as a new Mama about what to use on my baby. Nothing out there seemed good enough and I spent a large amount of the last few weeks of my pregnancy, worrying about whether I had gotten everything and whether or not it would be the right thing and panicking in case it wasn’t! Obviously if she had reacted to anything it wouldn’t have been a problem as I’d have just whipped out and replaced it. As a matter of fact she did and still does react to a certain type of nappy which unfortunately due to the fact she was a tiny preemie were the only ones we could use at the time so right from birth I have been slathering her in cream and quickly switched nappies to the brand we still use today (though we have begun potty training and please shoot me now!!). Anyway, we should NOT as new mamas be having to worry about what we use on our precious babies skin. It should be an easy decision and in fact not something we should be having to spend a long time thinking about….
One brand I have always been aware of is Johnson’s and as a baby I did use their gorgeous lavender baby bath for Alyssa as I adore the power of Lavender to calm and settle a little one. Well, they’ve come to the rescue again as Johnson’s have taken their long twelve year relationship with the Royal College of Midwives even further and certain products now have a “Supported by RCM” logo on them. I mean if the Midwives are supporting it, it’s gotta be pretty damn good right?!
“Both JOHNSON’S TOP-TO-TOE Baby Bath and JOHNSON’S Extra Sensitive Baby Wipes were tested in independent clinical trials carried out by midwives, and were shown to be just as safe as using water alone on newborn skin. These products are the only products clinically proven to be as mild as water* and can be used from the very first day.”
JOHNSON’S TOP-TO-TOE range
- For a gentle and mild bath, try JOHNSON’S TOP-TO-TOE Baby Bath to gently cleanse baby’s delicate skin and hair. The only baby bath clinically proven to be as mild as water**
- Follow with a soothing massage using JOHNSON’S TOP-TO-TOE Baby Massage Oil, which is specially developed for newborn skin, creating a light protective barrier on the skin to help maintain its natural moisture levels and help protect it from dryness.
- When you’re on-the-go, try JOHNSON’S TOP-TO-TOE Baby Washcloths. These ready-to-use washcloths are a quick, convenient, and easy way to give your baby a gentle yet thorough all-over clean, without the need for drying, or rinsing with water.
JOHNSON’S Extra Sensitive Wipes
JOHNSON’S Extra Sensitive Wipes effectively yet gently clean everything from wet bottoms to sticky fingers and delicate faces. Formulated with a NO MORE TEARS formula, JOHNSON’S Extra Sensitive Baby Wipes are the only baby wipes clinically proven to be as mild as water on new born skin.
What’s more, JOHNSON’S Extra Sensitive Wipes have a rigid lid which allows for one-handed opening (ideal when grappling with little legs), and an innovative dispensing system that dispenses one wipe at a time.
I did use cotton wool and luke warm water on my little one for the first 6 months and let me tell you it wasn’t that easy to do primarily because if you have a baby in need of an emergency change, it’s not like it’s all ready and set up for you. I’d also have to take out a bottle of warm water in a thermos for changes because weirdly I discovered that a lot of baby changing facilities DON’T have warm water or warm water taps – so random. Knowing that Johnson’s Top-to-Toe is safe to use right from birth AND approved by the RCM fills me with a lot of confidence in the product. I know that if I am ever fortunate to have another little one, I won’t be spending longer than two seconds thinking about what I am going to be using on my newborn. I’m sure I’ll find something else to worry about instead!
