Ease into your baby’s first year with Baby Balm by Natures Pond
Congratulations! Since you’ve found your way to this blog, I’m assuming you’ve just had a beautiful baby or you’re expecting soon. This is such a special time in your life, but also a challenging one; pregnancy and your baby’s first year can take its toll on your body and your baby’s delicate skin. Natures Pond is here to make this time run more smoothly. We can’t assist with those middle-of-the-night feeds or dummy dilemmas (sorry!), but many of our customers have reported soothing relief when using Baby Balm for common mum and baby issues. Read on to find out more…
Say goodbye to cracked or sore nipples
We all know that breast is best for baby, but there’s no escaping the fact that breastfeeding can wreak havoc on our poor nipples. Cracked or sore nipples are common in the first few weeks of breastfeeding. I remember the discomfort well, and being advised by a midwife to put refrigerated cabbage leaves in my bra! If you’re looking for a less smelly and more attractive remedy, I encourage you to arm yourself with a super moisturising nipple balm that protects and heals from the outside in. Natures Pond all-natural Baby Balm contains no nasties or essential oils, so it’s perfect and super safe to apply before – or after - a feed.
Soothe your baby’s bottom
As your baby adapts to life outside the womb and wearing nappies, he or she may develop a nappy rash. There are a few tricks you can try to fend it off, such as using cotton wool and water to clean baby’s delicate bottom and changing your baby’s nappy as soon as he or she is wet or dirty. Chances are, however, at some point your baby will develop the sore, red, spotty bottom characteristic of a nappy rash. Don’t despair! The ingredients in Natures Pond Baby Balm are renowned for their soothing qualities. These include kawakawa, manuka, kanuka, lavender, chamomile, beeswax, shea butter and vitamin E. You can use Baby Balm as often as required.
Help give dry skin and scalp the heave-ho
Your baby may be born with a thin white coating called vernix on his or her skin. This is baby’s natural balm - leave it be and allow it to absorb naturally. If, after a few weeks, your baby develops patches of dry skin or eczema on his or her body, you can use Baby Balm to gently massage any problem areas. Babies love to be touched; a few targeted, gentle strokes with Baby Balm will help you to bond with your baby as well as helping to nurture his or her delicate skin.
Sometimes babies develop dryness, or cradle cap, on their scalp. Resist the urge to pick as this will worsen the issue! Instead, use a small comb to gently remove any larger flakes of dryness from your baby’s scalp. Then apply a thin layer of Baby Balm to baby’s entire scalp and re-apply as often as needed.
Ready to try Baby Balm?
Here at Natures Pond, we love Baby Balm for its versatility and all-natural, calming properties. But don’t take our word for it! Here’s a review we recently received from one of our many Baby Balm fans:
“I’ve been using Baby Balm on my son who’s quite prone to nappy rash and it works wonders! I have tried nearly every other product on the market and this one is by far the best. Not only does he no longer get any rashes but his skin is softer than ever and it’s all-natural, love that! I even use it on his cheeks as he currently has a teething rash on his face and it moisturises and soothes it so nicely. Highly recommend!” Hayley Rose.
