Lately I’ve been giving L’il E massages (heavenly!) before bed and he’s loving it! At first I was using olive oil (the kind for body) but it was really starting to clog his pores. On the hunt for an alternative, I discovered Weleda Calendula Oil for baby. It’s 100% natural (no synthetic anything) and it smells so fresh. I love how E gets so calm while I’m massaging him and he smells delicious afterward. Here is an instructional video on bathing and infant massage just in case you want to try it too.
Since I’m such a cosmetics lover (now I get to buy them for our babe!) I also just had to try the Weleda Cream Bath, Body Wash & Shampoo and Face Cream (holy overboard!). I especially LOVE the face cream, I was using Aveeno Baby, but it was irritating L’il E’s delicate skin (sad face). After just a few days with this new cream his dry patches have all cleared up (yay)!
Check out the Weleda Baby products if you’re tired of the usual suspects and you’re looking for something all natural. You can buy it at Whole Foods and other health food stores around.
Happy baby spa-ing!
