Caladryl Diaper Cream from Piramal – Product Review

posted by Anupriya January 30, 2018 11 Comments

For my elder son I used both cloth diapers as well as disposable ones until the time he was perfectly toilet trained sans accidents. Use of disposable diapers was mostly limited to outdoor trips and at night through the winters. I am practicing a similar approach for my younger one too. I have come to realize that whether you use cloth nappies, cloth diapers or disposable diapers your kid is susceptible to rashes mostly due to exposure to wetness on the skin and sometimes from the chaffing that is caused from friction or rubbing of the nappy/ diaper against the skin.

As per doctors, certain enzymes in stool also irritate the skin which may cause redness / rashes in the bum area. And this problem sustains till the time the child is potty trained. Every mum of a little child has to look for a precautionary or curative remedy for rashes in the diaper area. Continue Reading

Your Child’s Hair Needs Special Care

posted by Anupriya November 6, 2017 11 Comments

Do you remember the first time you took your baby in your hands? Apart from the happiness and joy that you felt exhilarated with, there sure must have been some concerns. “Will I be able to generate enough breastfeed for my baby? I hope I hold her the right way! She looks so tiny and fragile. Oh! Her skin is sooooo sensitive. I must take care that she does not get any rashes. I hope her hair keeps the volume and shine she grew up with” I am sure that if a survey was done about the concerns that lurked around new moms the above doubts would top the charts.

I often wonder how as mothers or care givers, we are so obsessed with our babies’ skin and hair care from day one. And rightly so! We want the right kind of soap that’s paraben free, aanti-allergic and soft on the baby’s skin. Also for the apple of our eye we want a shampoo that cleanses the scalp thoroughly and is not harsh on the eyes. As a mother of two boys, one a toddler and one a primary schooler, it recently occurred to me that kids’ hair cleansing requirement also changes with age. I would classify these based on the stage of growth of a child as from a little baby to a toddler to beyond that. Continue Reading

I have extremely sensitive skin prone to sunburns even with only a few minutes out in the sun and my husband has suffered from an allergic skin until he crossed his 20s. It is only natural then that I fret over my children’s skin and its proper care. When I received the Aveeno Baby Lotion as a sample for a product review, I first used it on my hands for at least a week. Once I was satisfied with no allergic reactions or rashes on my skin, I started using it on my children. Continue Reading

If you are approaching your delivery and preparing to welcome your bundle of joy into your world, you are definitely hassled with listing the important things that you will require to make the baby comfortable into this new world.

Come winters and I am always worried about dryness that may set into my little one’s skin. And come summers I have nightmares about the rashes that may develop on his skin due to heat and sweat. Kids’ skin is always in need of special nourishment across the year.
