I read a lot of Zero Waste blogs, social media groups and websites before my baby was born. Lots of them wanted to tell me to stick to all-natural, plastic free, even homemade items. But, reality bites once your baby is here and you’re seriously sleep-deprived! The truth is you don’t have time to make your own anything, barely even a cup of tea! That said, I had been prepared with a tub of coconut oil as I’d read that this was ‘the best’ thing for nappy rash. What a load of bull!!!! Thank goodness that Bepanthen decided to send me a little surprise in the post. The timing couldn’t have been better!
Bepanthen rescued my poor little baby’s bottom in under 24 hours! It comes in a handy tube with a flip top lid, which is even manageable with one hand – very handy at nappy change time! You can buy a smaller tube which is ideal for your changing bag on the move and I also keep the large tube at home. It lasts for ages, as you only need a very small amount at each change. In my experience, it’s worth applying it at every change to keep a barrier between the nappy contents and your baby’s skin.
It spreads easily, no matter what the temperature outside and it really does work, unlike the stupid coconut oil. It also helps to change your baby’s nappy every 3 hours, or immediately once they have pooped. Try to give your baby some nappy free time each day too, if you can.
Not only is Bepanthen clinically proven to protect babies delicate skin, unlike coconut oil! It also contains natural ingredients, like Provitamin B5 (Panthenol), Beeswax and Lanolin to soothe and protect. I know what I’ll be reaching for from now on.
(Disclaimer: I was sent a free tube of Bepanthen for the purposes of reviewing. However, all opinions are my own and I had already chosen to use this product, based on the strength of other peoples positive reviews online).
