If it isn't broken.....

As a Mum of 4 multi-generational (thanks for the term Wendy) children a lot has changed in terms of pregnancy and childcare advice and products since I was first pregnant 20 years ago.

Even the pregnancy notes that you carry around have changed from a small cardboard sheet in a cardboard sleeve from my first pregnancy to the huge A4 folder you have these days.  One of the few things that have changed is the Bounty information packs that you receive when pregnant, as you have your baby, and then in the months after.  They contain leaflets, money off vouchers,  product samples and a great Bounty book with all sorts of helpful information in.

Sadly most of the money off vouchers are for disposable nappies (no good for us real nappy users) and I would really like to see some incentive included for those choosing the non-disposable route.  The one product that I keep and always use from the packs is the small handy sized pot of Sudocrem Nappy Rash Cream.

Although I am more than happy to try new products I always seem to come back to Sudocrem when nappy rash comes calling, as well as for sunburn, rashes and chapped skin - it's great for almost everything skin related. In my opinion if something isn't broken don't try and fix it and if something works - use it!

So if you are pregnant or have just become a proud parent look out for your small sample tub and give it a try.  You will be glad you did.


NB Bounty or Sudocrem have not given me anything for writing this post - it is all my own words and opinions.
