As a parent, you want to care for your baby in every way possible, which can make you acutely aware of how many products are out there that could irritate or even harm your baby’s skin.
To care for such soft, sensitive skin, it is important to look for gentle products to use on your baby day to day, from laundry detergents to bamboo cot bedding sets.
Navigating the thousands of products on the market can be difficult, so we’ve pulled together a list of the top products you should look for to care for your little one.
Gentle Laundry Detergents
It’s a fact that babies are messy – though we don’t think anyone can prepare you for just HOW messy – and lots of mess generally results in piles of laundry.
If you have a newborn or a baby with sensitive or eczema-prone skin, it’s a no-brainer to pick a laundry detergent that is designed to be gentle on sensitive skin.
Regular off-the-shelf laundry detergent often contains harsh chemicals and fragrances that can irritate sensitive skin, so you want to instead choose natural detergents that do not contain harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances or harsh soaps.
Bamboo Bed Sheets
Bamboo makes for an ideal material in cot bedding sets because it is natural, contains no nasty pesticides or chemicals, is hypoallergenic and eco-friendly.
Our bamboo blankets are also super soft, thermo-regulating and breathable, which is perfect for your bub.
Gentle Shampoo and Body Wash
Keeping your bub clean can feel like a mission, especially with smeared food and bodily functions keeping you on your toes.
If you’re using a gentle laundry detergent, it would be counterproductive to buy regular body wash and shampoo that contains chemicals and fragrances, as this could irritate your baby’s skin.
Instead, opt for shampoo and body wash that is formulated for sensitive skin, containing natural ingredients that soothe and moisturise your little ones’ skin.
Help your bub nod off to dream land with a low-allergenic quilt in their cot.
Choosing a quilt that is low allergenic means less skin irritation for your baby, which is especially important if they suffer from skin conditions such as eczema.
Bamboo is a great low-allergenic option, as it is soft on skin, breathable and easily machine washable. Our Bamboo Air Blanket is designed to be used year round, as they have exceptional ventilation and moisture-wicking properties.
Nappies Made for Sensitive Skin
Other than ensuring a nappy is absorbent enough to be safe from leaks and explosions, you need to ensure the nappy is comfortable and suitable for your bub’s sensitive bum.
When you are considering different nappy brands and types, you should look for products that are fragrance free, breathable, super absorbent and the right size for your baby.
