Sudocrem care & protect review

Before I got pregnant I didn't know much about nappy rash or how bad it could be for babies.

"Nappy rash is an irritation of the skin caused or aggravated by contact with wee and poo in a nappy. The rash starts with a slight reddening of the skin in the nappy area and can progress to soreness and discomfort".

When L was born for the first few weeks we used Sudocrem baby care cream (soothes and protects against nappy redness) but only when little one had a nappy rash caused by baby wipes.
We also tried to have as many nappy free time as possible, which worked but didn't solve the problem.
Few weeks ago we were sent Sudocrem care & protect cream (30g) to try and it changed everything!

"Sudocrem Care & Protect helps to care for your baby's delicate skin, protecting it against the causes of nappy rash. It's gentle yet effective and can be used daily at every nappy change even on newborn babies".

Straight away I have noticed the difference in textures: Sudocrem baby care cream has more thicker texture where as Sudocrem care & protect is lighter. I was a little bit skeptical at first as wasn't sure that the cream "stays" on the skin as it's so light.

We started using Sudocrem care & protect on a daily basis, and it seems that L doesn't mind it at all, normally she would hate anything to do with changing clothes or nappies.

How we use it
Every nappy change I either use baby wipes (last resort) or use cotton wool and water to wipe her bum and legs. Gently dab her skin with a small towel, squeeze a little drop of a cream onto my finger and spread it evenly.

We have been using it daily for the past few weeks and as a result L doesn't have any rash or any redness at all. She is enjoying our nappy changing routine and doesn't mind the cream at all. 

If you are interested and would like to try it yourself here is the pricing range and where you can buy the product:

  1. Nappy rash can be so painful, it's great to find a product that really works x

  2. I have heard a lot of good things about this cream, it looks ideal for everyday use and taking out in the changing bag. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  3. Sudocrem is brilliant, not just for babies and children either. It is fantastic at softening dry skin on your elbows, knees and feet.

  4. Brilliant moisturiser for me under make-up or just to protect my skin, any time of day. I just wished for me that it hadn't the lavender fragrance.
