CHARLES EVERETT : WHAT’S IN MY BAG?
Bourdreaux’s Natural Butt Paste®
I love Bourdreaux’s Natural Butt Paste. Not only is the consistency thick enough for great coverage but it’s not so thick you feel like you need to soak your hands to get all of the residue off. Charlie has only had one diaper rash in the last 18 months and I truly do believe this product has helped keep his bum healthy. I’m always very conscious of the type of products I use on Charlies’s skin. The natural butt paste uses all natural ingredients including, soothing aloe, beeswax, and Peruvian balsam oil. It is FREE from: dyes, preservatives, parabens and talc.
Honest Company Soothing Baby Bottom Wash
Have you ever changed your baby’s poopy diaper but the smell just won’t go away? There were times when my husband and I were actually checking our shoes and wiping Charlie clean 2-3 times because we could not get rid of the smell. Then we started using this soothing bottom wash. I’m not sure why it works so well but it does. It completely takes away the smell which is especially important when you don’t have a bath tub handy. It’s also all natural made with organic aloe, witch hazel, and botanical extracts, not to mention it has NO: SLS, sulfates, phthalates, parabens, fragrances, dyes, formaldehyde, MEA, DEA, TEA, or most common allergens. However, if your child has a bad diaper rash, I would NOT recommend spraying this on the area.
A few friends of mine introduced me to these over Christmas. They swear by them. We tried them out and I can see why. Boogie wipes contain saline. Saline dissolves snot and mucus! When infused into a moist wipe like Boogie Wipes, saline makes mucus easier to wipe away while remaining gentle enough to comfort stuffy noses. Because saline is natural and hypoallergenic, it can soothe even the most delicate skin without irritation. Charlie does not pull away with these wipes like he did when I would use regular wipes on his nose.
Any boy moms out there? My 18 month old runs through the halls of our home without even looking up. That being said, he has had his share of bumps and bruises. If this sounds like your little boy or girl then Arnicare will be a go to for you. Arnica is the main ingredient and has shown to be one of the most popular homeopathic medicines throughout the world. It is trusted by professional athletes to soothe sore muscles, by prominent cosmetic surgeons to relieve post-procedure pain, and by savvy parents to treat playground bumps and bruises. This stuff works!
Pamper Swaddlers diapers
I am usually very good at staying organic/all natural but I couldn’t find a diaper as good as these guys. I tried a bunch of brands that were just so stiff and non absorbent. These have been the best for our family. I recommend trying out a few different brands to see which ones work the best for your baby.
WaterWipes are my favorite wipes. A baby’s skin is much more delicate than your own, so it should be cleaned with only the gentlest and purest elements possible. WaterWipes are the only wipes made with just water, specially purified and softened, with a tiny drop of grapefruit seed extract. WaterWipes have been carefully designed to be gentle on babies’ sensitive skin. They are the only wipes that contain 99.9% water and a drop of grapefruit seed extract – a natural skin conditioner.
