When my triplets were babies, I was terrified of doing something wrong that would not be absolutely the right thing. I used proprietary baby soap and powder, baby shampoo and lotion. It is very mild and did what it was supposed to do, but it didnt cross my mind to check what was in it, it said ‘ Baby’ on it so it had to be good right? Its only since I have started taking more notice of what goes into things that I have seen the chemicals added to soaps and baby products.
Small babes don’t need a bath everyday and it can dry their skin if bathed too much, which has got to be a consideration. However, this was one of the small things I could do with my triplets when they were in hospital. We started off with just a sponge bath, when they were on ventilators, then as they got more stable and could be bathed, it was amazing to actually be able to do something for them.
As they got older and we got home, the bathing routine at night was part of their bedtime, getting them calmed down, relaxed and ready for bed. But the one thing I didnt consider was the soap I was using. My babies did have dry skin and I used moisturising cream, it never crossed my mind at the time, that I could do something about it……. But I have now !
I have been a little quiet on my website recently because I have been developing a soap business and boy has it had me busy!
I started off with baby soap and the whole thing has morphed into a whole business – Wild Soapery !
Go take a look at the baby soap ! I will be offering samples of the baby soap for anyone who emails me with their address. There will be no charge for postage and packing either. So have a look !
