There’s so much mixed information about whether you should put anything on your baby’s bum that it took a while before I decided to try a few different products. Green Baby Nappy Balm was highly recommended by several people and I liked that it’s organic and kind to your babies skin.
It’s made from ingredients like almond oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax and also has essential oils of lavender and Roman camomile that help prevent causes of nappy rash and also soothe the skin. It doesn’t have any Paraben, synthetic fragrances, or preservatives.
For me I like that it smells very herby and relaxing but that it’s also handmade. It does look and feel thick and textured but it actually goes on quite smoothly. It really moisturises the skin but it doesn’t stick to it and look like it’s barely moved when you change their nappy next time round. I’ve been using it for almost four months and (touch wood) I’ve had no nappy rash problems, but more importantly, I feel like I’m taking very good care of her skin which is exposed to all sorts from pooing and weeing all day long! I know people who’ve been using it for almost a year and their baby’s bums are doing great too.
It’s not the cheapest at Â£5.99 but if you’re the type of person (like me) who does worry about what goes on her baby’s skin, then it’s worth the money. I had the pleasure of meeting some of the lovely people from Green Baby on the last day of the Babyshow at Earls Court and they were selling the nappy balm and several other products at 3 for Â£10. My friend and I bought 18jars between us (I bought 6) as well as several other products.
Ease of Use: 5/5 Goes on smoothly, wipes off reasonably, particularly off your own hands. Great texture
Handmade, smells great, treats your baby’s bum very well and kind to the environment.
