You don’t need any products for washing your baby for at least the first month – just water will do it. But once the crevices in his or her neck start to attract milk and the nappies get really… interesting, you might want to consider a gentle body wash. I tested a few by washing my face with them – my super-sensitive skin would surely show up any potential irritants before I lathered it up on my girl. L’Occitane’s Mum & Baby Cleansing Gel £13.50 really stood out. A little research showed it’s free from everything you’d want to protect your baby’s perfect skin from – alcohol, silicone, minerals and colours. It’s packed with Shea Extract, so skin feels silky after use, and it didn’t make my eyes sting one bit when I rubbed it in (just to see, you understand – don’t try this at home). It’s also gentle on the cradle cap my daughter suffered with at first, and seemed to calm her little red neck. Her skin is actually seemingly even smoother after a wash, and she smells divine. What more could you wish for?
