Weleda Nappy Cream as tested by H and her 11 week old baby.
I love this nappy cream. The first thing I noticed was the lovely smell – not at all medicinal like some other nappy creams.
This nappy cream isn’t cheap, but a little goes a long way. The price becomes irrelevant, as the ingredients in this cream are far preferable to ingredients in other nappy creams on the market. I am, therefore, much happier using this on the fragile skin of my 11-week-old baby.
Weleda Calendula Nappy Change Cream has a lovely texture and gives a good covering on the skin. It is less sticky than Bepanthen and is also easier to wash off than Sudocrem, even though it holds to the skin very well. This is quite important if your little one has a particularly sore bottom – you don’t want something that is difficult to apply, or to be rubbing to wash something off.
I have used this cream as necessary with my baby son. If used regularly it has kept any soreness away. If I have forgotten to use it for a few changes and the redness creeps back, then one or two applications has it sorted.
You do have to go to the Weleda website for instructions on how best to use this product though, as nothing is written on the tube, the box or the leaflet…
