Finding the best products you can for your baby’s skin is a priority when preparing for their arrival. But it’s often the last thing you think of when packing your hospital bag, so are left to use whatever products the hospital has when baby arrives.
Newborns and babies bathe pretty often, and have even more nappy changes (sometimes 10 a day!) so having plenty of quality skin care products specially for young sensitive skin is essential.
After using loads of products on all my girl’s skin I have some clear favourites, mainly based on what works, but also which products align with my personal philosophy of what’s good for the environment, ethically made, as natural as possible and organic.
When bathing my first baby for very first time in hospital, I met a wonderful midwife who told me that babies really only need warm water on their skin for their first bath; their skin is that sensitive. The smell of the mother is also helpful for bonding and calming them. So I decided right then to find the most natural and gentle products I could for my baby.
Organic for Baby by La Clinica is all of this and more.
Their huge range of organic products for babies including shampoo, nappy lotion, sunscreen, moisturiser, bath oil, massage oil, barrier balm and soap free body wash have no hidden nasties like petro-chemicals or mineral oils, contain no added fragrances and are not tested on animals.
The products are very concentrated too, so you don’t need to use much, also meaning they will last you a long time.
I have found the moisturising Zinc Barrier Balm to be one of the best products for my baby’s nappy rash. To help heal and prevent it. It’s so smoothe, rich and creamy, I only need a fingernail-sized amount, and it’s the best thing for clearing up her nappy rash and treating her eczema at the same time.
Using Frankensence, Jojoba oil, Calendula, Shea butter, Lavendar and other essential oils, all the products smell amazing too.
They make a great gift for a Baby Shower, welcoming a new baby, birthday or Christmas. Or even yourself!
La Clinica have a fabulous skincare range for mums too, including stretch mark cream, bath oils, moisturisers, serums, sunscreens, masques and exfoliants, and more! All organic and so gentle on your skin.
