At 5 months old, Harrison has been relatively unaffected when it comes to sensitive skin. We've had the full choice of baby skincare: we've been able to take advantage of the sweet smell of the Johnsons' products, save some money on the Aldi baby-wipes and we've never really had to look at labels, I liked to think we were in the clear. Little did I know that one in all three children are at risk of developing skin allergies. Just because we've been lucky until now, doesn't mean we will continue to be. Although we have a child who at the moment appears to be allergy free, that doesn't mean we are not conscious of trying to minimize the risk. We've recently started weaning Harrison, and what should be in theory a nice calm meal time can often turn into what can only be described an explosion of prunes and avocado, so bath time is now more crucial than ever. That tiny little human can get his food everywhere right now, so on a particularly messy day, at times it makes more sense to dunk him in the sink than it ever would to exhaust a packet of baby wipes. This does mean that at times he can be in and out twice a day, and I'm very conscious of making sure I am as kind to his skin as possible with this additional exposure to products.
Neutral products. Neutral is a Scandinavian brand with a strong focus on products that are kind to skin.
With the Neutral products, I can only describe them as extremely functional. There is no luxury here; but they provide what they say they will, a kinder approach with sensitive skin in mind. There is nothing worse than watching your child suffer with something that cannot be helped: even if we've not experienced allergies with a child, we've all been there with nappy rash, or dribble chin, and watching your child in pain with little to do to alleviate it is harrowing. If I could take one step to prevent the onset of this, then I'll gladly take it. If you've not yet tried the Neutral products, I'd thoroughly recommend them.
