Don't Fear the Mess



Babies make mess, it's a fact of life, from the moment they arrive they throw our homes into a happy state of chaos but as long as you make sure they are well fed, loved and changed than you really don't need to get to hung up on the mess in the early months, just enjoy your time with your little one. If you have those key basis covered then generally babies are jolly little things although of course when teething or nappy rash or any kind of skin irritation appears it can cause a normally happy smiley child to become grumpy and miserable.




We try and keep our routines simple and use as many nature products as possible although when Pampers asked us to take the #PampersPooFace challenge and to show that their new sensitive baby wipes are milder and more PH balanced that cotton wool and water as well as being dermatologically accredited by the Skin Health Alliance I was at first both apprehensive and curious and was keen to know more and take the challenge. So watch our little video and see what interesting result we ended up with...




I have to admit going into this I really thought that Water and Cotton wool would be the more milder and skin friendly option so was really surprised when the wipes did better on the PH scale and I find it reassuring that I am not using anything harsh on Baby G's skin when it comes to those messy situations such as nappy changing time or weaning.

I'm working with BritMums and Pampers testing their wipes and featuring their new #PampersPooface video. I was provided wipes and have been compensated for my time. All editorial and opinions are my own. Visit youtube for more information.

  4. That's really good to know! I religiously used water and cotton wool for weeks but there gets to a stage where it just can't cut the mess anymore!

  9. So much mess, especially when you're weaning! We use SO many wipes, I panic when there isn't at least ten packets lying around x

  11. So true, the mess is inevitable. I remember the mess of BLW used to drive me insane until I just accepted it as part of the process, then I could relax and enjoy it. x
