I’d like to keep it that way if at all poss.
So far, so good, on the nappy rash front. There’s been the odd bit of redness here and a little bit of soreness there, but nothing a good bath, dry off, and coating of Sudocrem hasn’t been able to clear up almost within the hour. Magical stuff that Sudocrem.
Actually, when Allegra was a baby she seemed much more prone to nappy-rash than Claudia has been to date, but I remember her once having a terrible bout of it and while she didn’t seem bothered by it at all, I felt dreadful for her and remember letting her spend a few hours nappy free on a bed of many towels so she could get some air to her butt. She wee-d six times in the space of about an hour. Six times! I got through a lot of kitchen roll that day.
Anyway, I digress.
So I was asked if I’d like to test out the new Sudocrem Care & Protect nappy rash ointment, which is about to hit the shelves, and promises triple protection against the causes of nappy rash. I said yes. Sure. Why not? – who doesn’t want to keep their baby’s butt nice and rash free and peachy?
How does it work?
1) It creates a protective barrier, which seals in the skin’s natural moisture and protects baby’s delicate skin against external irritants
2) It conditions the skin with Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5, helping to protect it and keep it soft, heathy, and moisturised. Pro Vit B5 has also been shown to act as an anti-inflammatory on skin.
3) It guards against infection, by acting as a barrier to protect baby’s delicate skin from the bad stuff like the chemicals in wee and poo (should I maybe coat my hands in the cream then?!) and from chafing and rubbing (a distinct possibility with baby’s chubster thighs!)
We’ve been using new Sudocrem Care & Protect for about a week now and what’s our verdict? – well, allow me to speak on behalf of myself and baby Claudia, whose bum did the testing:
– it has a lovely texture and the cream doesn’t stick to mum’s hands, but glides on easily to baby’s bum
– it rubs in easily and nicely and baby’s bum looks almost visibly softer and glossier as a result!
– it has kept sore-butts at bay, with no redness visible and even in the hot weather, baby’s bum has kept peachy and rash free
– it’s odourless and doesn’t get stuck under mum’s nails (a big plus point for me!)
It’s not cheap, retailing at £3.99 for a 30g tube, but I can see that a little goes a long way so it should last a fair while and it is a really good product, genuinely, so I would buy it in the future. Not least because it will keep baby’s bottom as soft and rash-free as it should be!
Disclosure: we were sent a tube of Sudocrem Care & Protect to trial but all opinions are our own and are honest.
