Care to share which baby bath are you using for new born? What about nappy rash cream?
What are steps to bath baby? Need to rinse the baby bath off? I really need some guide here.. First time mummy. Thanks!
Soap i use mustela, shampoo i use sebamed and for nappy i use mustela also. I find musela shampoo is too harsh on my baby's hair.
Desitin for baby nappy rash cream is the best !
desitin for nappy rash is good since it is like waterproof. but my baby dont have nappy rash so i change to pureen nappy cream instead.
for bath, i like those top to toe wash , using one type and wash whole body. i use pureen because smell really nice
Thanks all for sharing.
I will note down all the brands and start shopping soon. So most of the baby bath dont need to rinse off right?
I attended baby class and they recommend Avent barrier cream. Baby using Avent barrier cream since birth and I like it because it is light and easily absorbed, like moisturiser. Day use Avent, night use Desitin cos baby sleeps through the night.
Desitin very good for nappy rash, good to have one standby. Qoo10 has the best price.
Bath using Avent bath. 2 drops in one tub of water will suffice. No need rinse. Johnson also not bad. Pigeon I find so so.
Btw, baby dont't really need a separate shampoo. The bath water use to wash head can already. dont't apply directly to baby scalp cos may be too strong.
Hope this helps!
I use Avent bath. It's suitable for both hair & body. Troublesome to use separate soap & shampoo hehe.
Nappy rash cream - Avent bottom balm for prevention. I put it on baby everytime after she bathes. Desitin only when rashes come out; It's really effective! Rashes cleared in less than 2 days. That's also why I'm wary that it might be too strong to use on a daily basis.
My pediatrician said to avoid using Johnson & Johnson products. Said not good for young babies.
Thanks for the infor. So many of you using Avent. My coll also using that becos - no need to rinse.
Where can i get good price for Avent bath, Avent nappy cream and Desitin nappy cream?
What about Bubchen bath? Any one using?
Desitin I buy from Qoo10. $10.50 for 4oz tube as oppose to $12+ for 2oz tube if buy from supermarket. Get blue one will be good enough.
Agree about Desitin, somehow I have a feeling like the skin cannot breath with it apply on so thick so I only use at night. I tried Avent for night, not good enough as baby can sleep for 7hrs before waking for night feed.
My Edd in jan'13. Too early to stock up now
I guess: my choice ----
1. Avent body n hair wash - no need rinse. Just drop 2-3 drops in baby bath tub. Correct?
2. Avent nappy cream: day use..
3. Desitin blue nappy cream: night use or if rash comes out.
Correct? Anyone using pureen nappy cream?

Sterile cotton can get from pharmacy. In fact another useful item is the non-woven swabs also sterile. It's square in shape. Picks up dirt and dry skin on baby very effectively when wet. I dont't use wet wipes due to concerns of the chemical.
Thanks kwokm! The non-woven swab is sticky on one side that's y it can picks up dirt and dry skin quickly? I didn't know there's such product .... Alamak heehee
hence now I am using Organic products. Tried Gaia, California baby etc. Now I buy organic shampoo and bath from iHerb.com - Vitamins, Supplements & Natural Health Products as it is
much cheaper. I used to use J and J for my elder kids. Shocked to read here that pediatrician advised against as well.
I myself using organic product now as my skin changed during this round of confinement.
you Can Use my referral or DIscouNt Code JTM172 for iherb.com for $10 off $40
I read online that in US, J&J is found to have cancer causing agent in their baby products. Not sure about Singapore's J&J products.
According to me Johnson & Johnson is one of the best brand of baby product that make all baby product with good materials that not harmful of baby skin and no any side-effect to use it. I always prefer to use Johnson and Johnson baby bath and rash cream that really good for my baby skin.
Yeah... I use to think so too.. until i kept reading comments of the foreign mummies saying how it is bad for baby etc etc hence they prefer natural products? That's how i started using too..
