It has been a while since I made the conscious decision to switch to natural skincare products for myself, so it should come as no surprise that I have extended this to the products that I use on Alexander. Babies have the softest, smoothest skin so it really makes no sense to apply chemical-laden products on them.
I was especially thrilled when Aden and Anais sent me their naturally-derived skin care collection to trial and review. Their mum + bub range is infused with pawpaw fruit which contains a skin conditioning enzyme. It is also free from nasty chemicals, making it gentle enough for both baby and the entire family.
mum + bub ultra-gentle lotion at hand to use on him. After a few applications, I am happy to report the dryness went away and his skin was soft as ever. The lotion is super lightweight and absorbed easily, leaving no greasy feeling. I have continued to massage it on Alexander daily even now and he absolutely loves it.
I love the natural smell of Alexander - he is so milky and sweet. That's why I like that mum + bub's hair and body wash is very lightly scented with sandalwood which doesn't overpower his natural smell. When he spits up and vomits and gets poo on himself like all babies do, I use this product to gently clean his body and hair - one pump in the bath and another pump for his hair. This product is tear free, mild on the skin and conditioning, which makes bath time such a fun time for both him and me.
One thing I learnt very quickly as a new mum is that babies poo and wee a lot. And I mean A LOT. Alexander's nappy region is constantly being wiped and exposed to poo and wee so I've been extra diligent in applying mum + bub's soothing ointment on Alexander's little bum after each nappy change to prevent his skin from being irritated. This ointment also works well on cuts, chapped lips, insect bites - what a bonus!
