The first issue we had with Lily’s skin was soreness around her neck. At first we thought perhaps milk was getting in the creases are causing the soreness that way but she’s breastfed and I find that there are hardly any milk dribbles at all. We tried various creams and they helped a bit but never got rid of it completely. We took her to the doctors and one of the first things we were prescribed after trying everything else, including natural products such as coconut and olive oil, was Aveeno. It was great and cleared up the soreness around her neck completely.
Lily was eventually diagnosed with eczema and gets it pretty badly on her arms, chest, legs, hands and face. When its bad its red raw and bleeding, and when it’s good it’s still pretty bad. We currently have a prescription cream which still only manages to half heal it.
We picked up this cream before getting the more hardcore, prescription stuff and it’s brilliant for soothing the skin and we use it whenever she has patches that look particularly sore and after baths as I find that the Colloidal Oatmeal in it really helps stop the itchiness. It hasn’t cured her eczema but it’s well worth investing in some purely as something to soothe the itch. I do prefer the smell of the adult one (which works just as well), but the baby one has a “baby” smell to it. Not baby smell as in poo and milky sick but more like a classic baby lotion scent so it makes for ultimate baby snuggling!
I paid £5.99 for this from Boots.
