When my now 4 year old was teething the only symptom that couldn't be cured with an Amber anklet was his nappy rash. His poor bum blistered terribly and was red raw so I dutifully tried every nappy rash cream I could get my motherly mits on. The habit for trying new creams has stayed with me and so when I came across Myreen Youngs nappy balm I had to order it to try with my 11 week old.
The balm sounded right up my street. Organic, cruelty free and vegan is a trio of things that rarely come together in nappy cream but that I always search for. With those three boxes all ticked I have to admit I didn't expect to be lucky enough for this balm to actually be any good.
Its ingredients include lavender & tea tree essential oils along with olive leaf extract & chamomile.
Arriving beautifully packaged (not something you can usually say for bum cream) in a handy pump bottle the balm pumps out easily in small amounts and glides on smoothly leaving a thin layer of white cream that I've found does not stain cloth nappies like some other creams. The ease of application and lack of mess has totally won me over alongside the ethical nature of the product. What's more, the cream is totally affordable costing just £4.50. Of all the nappy creams I've tried over the years this one is by far my favourite and I highly recommend it. Available from www.myreenyoung.co.uk where you can also find a range of other baby skincare products.
