As the mother of a very busy 14 month old, I am used to doing things on the move! Nothing frustrates my son more than having to sit still while he wants to play or explore. So if super fast nappy changes were an Olympic sport, I’m fairly sure I’d be in a medal position!
If you’re a parent of a small child, you will have probably experienced nappy rash at some point or another. Baby skin is super delicate. My son suffers with nappy rash every time he’s teething. Apparently that’s something to do with the extra saliva he produces when there’s teeth coming through. He already has 8 teeth and there are more on the way, so I’m keen to do anything I can to avoid any sore skin!
Bepanthen Skin Protection ointment is an easily absorbed cream which can be applied at every nappy change. It isn’t for nappy rash, it is to help protect babies skin. We’ve been using it for a while, and it is easy to apply – even to a wriggling toddler. It absorbs into skin and keeps skin in nice condition.
Happy skin, happy toddler! Adding applying Bepanthen to our nappy change routine may have added seconds to our nappy changes, but if i means happy skin we’ll keep on applying it!
Things you might not know about baby skin;
- A newborn baby’s skin is 40% thinner and also softer than adults, which makes it more sensitive to irritants, like those in wee and poo which can cause nappy rash when in contact with the skin. This is made worse by a tight nappy which both rubs and stops the air circulating.
- Bepanthen has a kind-to-skin formulation: No fragrances; No colours; No preservatives; No parabens; No antiseptics)
- Contains Provitamin B5 to help skin to repair its natural protective barrier
- Bepanthen is clinically proven: It forms a transparent, breathable layer, helping to protect your baby’s skin from the irritants and rubbing that can cause nappy rash
- Nappy rash affects 1 in 3 babies at some point , so protecting your baby’s bottom from getting red makes perfect sense, instead of waiting for your little one to suffer from a sore bottom.
