Preparing for a newborn is both exciting and intimidating, especially when it comes to finding the essentials. Here’s a guide to help you choose what you will need.
Baby Hygiene Tips: Keeping your baby clean and happy from hair to toe
When it comes to keeping our little ones clean and protected, there's often a long list of things we consider before buying a product. Things like ingredients, if the products are pH balanced, gentle on sensitive skin and our environment.
And just like every one of our children, every personal care product is different, so which ones should you use for what purpose? Here’s our list.
Top baby personal care products and how to use them:
Baby bathtime cleansers
We all know how important regular baths are. Both for hygiene reasons and creating a nighttime routine that will (hopefully), help them sleep. But the question is, should you use an all-in-one cleanser, or a separate shampoo and body wash?
Pigeon’s Natural Botanical Head and Body Wash nourishes your baby’s scalp, while gently removing the daily build-up of, well, all the things that happened that day, from their little body.
From poop explosions to peeling skin, this natural pH balanced cleanser removes it all while keeping your little one’s skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
Not all moisturisers are the same - Almost all newborns will have flaky, dry skin in their first weeks outside of the womb. This is due to their skin needing to adapt to their new environment and is usually resolved with the regular use of a nourishing moisturiser.
But dry skin doesn’t stop there.
Change in seasons, colder weather or sensitive skin are all reasons a child’s skin may need some extra nourishing TLC.
Pigeon’s Natural Botanical range has two moisturisers that are worth adding to your cart.
Pigeon’s Natural Botanical Water Gel is a lightweight moisturiser that provides a quick boost of hydration for a fresh start to the day, and, Pigeon’s Natural Botanical Milky Lotion is a long-lasting moisturiser to keep skin hydrated throughout the night.
Both are non-greasy, contain nourishing ingredients like Argan, Olive and Chamomile extracts and are dermatologically tested.
Baby massage oil
Giving your baby a massage is as simple as it is enjoyable. And while it often creates a beautiful bonding moment between the two of you, it also has some pretty amazing health benefits.
For example, just 10 minutes of gentle touch actually stimulates your little one’s central nervous system, helping their brain produce more serotonin which in turn helps them feel more relaxed and happy. It can also aid digestion, improve sleep and keep their skin extra kissable.
Pigeon’s Natural Botanical Massage Oil is light-weight, mineral oil free, safe for newborns, and helps to seal in moisture while calming your baby’s mind for a beautiful night’s sleep.
So whether you’re battling bath-time or dealing with dry skin, Pigeon’s new Natural Botanical range has you covered. With more than 90% naturally derived ingredients and dermatological testing, it’s sure to keep your bub happy and hygienic.
