i used Lactacyd for my girl for abt a yr as recommended during antenatal class. Had tried Mustela and QV as well. All pretty gd, not drying. find J&J and Kodomo products very soapy. In fact, my girl's hair drops when i used the J&J top to toe wash and Pureen shampoo.
Lactacyd and QV can be bought from Guardian, Unity, Watsons. if u r keen on lactacyd, pls look out for the bundle promo. more worth it. i remembered Unity Pharmacy often had 2 big and 1 small bottle at almost half price. do note that its the green stripes packaging, not pink.
Mustela can be bought from Kiddy Palace and major dept store ie, Robinsons, Taka. I've just started QV lotion. find it better than Mustela. absorbs better. hope the above info helps
attended antenatal class, and the instructor menioned J & J is fine for bb's bath. No need to get separate shampoo too. Just be careful to add just one drop into a whole tub of water during bath. water should not have bubbles at all. Although not stated as no rinse, the hospitals have been using J&J as no rinse and they found it ok.
I saw 2 brands - J&J and Avent during the baby care lesson, which I attended at TMC. For Avent, saw the baby body & hair wash which is tear free & the instructor recommended the baby bottom balm which is good for preventing nappy rash. I just bought these 2 Avent pdts at Isetan cos got 20% discount now.
As for the bathtub, i have a new discovery! I saw a bathtub which could be mounted on a stand -less bending over for mummies esp mummies who experienced lower back pains like me! It is available at Tanglin Mall, level 3, opp. Mother & Child.
for baby bath i strongly recommend SebaMed or Mustela coz it doesn't contain sodium laureth sulfate. This is the chemical that most product contain and if ppl like us use for long term will causes cancer.
Hi Muddypie, sorry - i didn't login for quite a while. Been busy with work. Have you bought the bath tube yet, I think its over $100? I heard that John Little is selling something similar where the whole setup could is mobile. Means you could bathe ur BB in the room itself.
I use Cetaphil for baby. Its intended for sensitive skin and can is good enough to be used without water. Plus it leaves layer of moisturiser on the skin, so no need to further moisturise baby after bath already.........
Hi! Sebamed smells quite nice but it's not an all in one tip to toe but just for the baby's body right? Has anyone used it for their baby as an all in one (shampoo+body) for their babies (newborn)? Which do you guys find the best smelling among all the popular brands mentioned here? :-D
In view of the amount of chemicals even in bb shampoos and baths, would recommend that you use organic brnds like california baby. Might be costly but i think it's worth it considering it is scientifically proven that the skin absorbs chemicals easily and that's why some medicine are taken via application. Anyway, that's just my 2 cents worth.
Think your way of washing is just like what i saw and heard lo....So its ok so far right? No need to get another pail of clean water to rinse again ho. So the same pail of water to wash from head to toe right?
Thanks alot. btw, read that if got cradle cap, use olive oil. Mrswong from TMC said that too during the baby talk.
Cradle Cap (infantile or neonatal seborrhoeic dermatitis, also known as crusta lactea, milk crust, honeycomb disease) is a yellowish, patchy, greasy, scaly and crusty skin rash that occurs on the scalp of recently born babies. It is usually not itchy, and does not bother the baby. Cradle cap most commonly begins sometime in the first 3 months. The rash is often prominent around the ear, the eyebrows or the eyelids. It may appear in other locations as well, where it is called seborrhoeic dermatitis rather than cradle cap. Some countries use the term pityriasis capitis for cradle cap. It is extremely common, with about half of all babies affected. Most of them have a mild version of the disorder. Severe cradle cap is rare.
