I was devastated... What have I done wrong! Bad mummy... etc...
Then I had a good think about it... In hospital you are given wipes and told to use water...
Come home and it was straight to using Huggies wipes (or another variation)
Maybe these things are too strong for a new borns bottom? Maybe not for all, but for my babies bottom?
I hopped on the internet and did some searching and found the Wotnot baby range.
From their website:
Wotnot baby range has been developed by our mums to cleanse, moisturise and soothe your baby naturally. We use the finest and most gentle natural extracts. Our products are free from sulphates, petrochemicals, parabens, artificial preservatives and fragrances – we know WOTNOT to put in. WOTNOT formulas are so close to nature we know your baby will love them as much as you do!
Great! Lets order some and give it a go!
So with the help of Hydrozol cream and using the Wotnot wipes, we are clear from nappy rash! I don't feel like such a bad mumma now...
We will keep using them for a little while, but then go back to the Huggies (I have packets and packets!) but I will now know where to turn if/when nappy rash re-appears.
