Since becoming a mum I have been introduced to a new world of lotions and potions for me and my little one, and some of these products have been godsends to me. Some of my favourites have been: Bio-oil, which kept my skin supple and eased that awful bump-itch during pregnancy. Also, I'm sure I couldn't have breastfed at all with out the help of Lansinoh cream and its amazing healing properties - it was an absolute must-have and helped me deal with, what was for me, a very painful experience. These days I tend to wash my hair with nice mild baby shampoos, and I love the L'Occitane shea butter 'Mum and Baby Lotion'. We've used Bepanthen nappy ointment since V started getting the occasional bit of nappy rash, which has luckily always been very mild but is an irritation nonetheless. This ointment is nothing short of miraculous in how quickly it clears up redness and sore bits.
