We have been using a combination of Johnsons shampoo, Neals Yard Baby Bath and baby bath bombs from Lush.
I am only using the Johnsons 'cos we got given soooo much of it when she was born and I don't like to waste stuff. However, I would like to stop using it as I'm sure it's not doing Freya's eczema any good. The Neals Yard stings eyes really bad, so I don't like using it on her hair and the bath bombs are obv only for the bath water, not washing. We only use products every other day anyway, just plain water otherwise.
Can anyone recommend a natural baby bath/wash/shampoo that is nice for their skin and does the job?
I use mainly plain water on Adam but I have Weleda Baby Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash and Little Me Organics Mmm Moisture Babies Hair & Body Wash, They're SLS free. We use the tiniest amount and only when he needs it, like when his bum is stained orange! I won't be using Johnson's products till Adam is a lot older, if ever, actually.
I love the lush baby bath bombs! They make her sleep so well. We use burts bees baby bee shampoo and wash. It's definitely tear free cos i tried with a big blob in my eye before i used on her! There is a list of the ingredients on the site (I don't know what allergies your LO has) http://www.burtsbees.co.uk/natural-p...mpoo-wash.html and you can get it from waitrose/john lewis boots etc xxx
Not sure what all brands we have that yall would, but I love Method baby (they have kids too and one that smells like apples is amazing) Landon has terrible eczema and this doesn't effect him even with the scents. Another great one for eczema is Medela. California Kids, Burt's Bees and Earth's Best
Kian had very bad eczema and i used to use wheatgerm as its known for being soothing. I'd put it into some tights and it would make the water milky. I've also used Allergenics products which you can get from health food shops. At the moment with Niamh i'm using earth friendly baby products which i got from the health food shops. Johnsons products tend to be very harsh on delicate/sensitive skin and i won't use them again. You need to avoid products that contain sodium lauryl/laureth.
My absolute favourite is Method baby hair and body wash, it smells delicious. You can get it in boots or here http://www.methodproducts.co.uk/ and it makes your baby smell like marshmallows, yum! Really reasonably priced compared to a lot of the other earth friendly ones.
I also really rate Weleda products, and Avène, think Avène's nappy cream is nicer than Weleda.
