babblekids / bandana bibs review / preventing dribble rash

I was very happy to receive a selection of this companies large and small dribble bibs to try out with my 6 month old baby boy. They have a lot of smart conventional designs and then some more unusual ones such as the baseball design one which you can see in the photo.

Before I received these bibs I was having to put two bibs on my baby or the plastic backed ones which aren't very comfortable and a bit scratchy.

I've tried out a few branded bibs, some of which were really expensive, and I can honestly say that they do not come close to the soft and absorbent material combination in these bibs.

The front of the bib is made out of jersey cotton which is really high quality and absorbs dribble and even after washing stays soft.

The back of the bib is made of micro-fleece and this is where the protection for your baby's neck comes in because it repels moisture when your baby dribbles and this helps to prevent the dribble rash.

I was so impressed with how reasonably priced they are for such a high quality product.

I also received some of the larger bibs which are for children aged 3-10 and because they are so soft my baby likes to use these as a comforter to hold as he goes to sleep.

These bibs can be bought individually or you can buy a lovely gift pack which contains 3 bibs and comes in blue or pink gift packaging.

a basket of bees / review / natural skincare / eczema

I received this generous selection of all natural products from this company.

Honey shower gel natural

This is the first time I have used a honey based shower gel and I thought it might have been a bit sticky for me but because they are made with plant oils the consistency is just right and perfect if you have eczema as it nourishes the skin without leaving it feel greasy. What I also found out from this companies website is that honey feeds the skin, encouraging cell growth, which helps with healing cuts and grazes, and keeps skin continually renewed. I had no adverse reaction, itchiness or redness.There is also a shampoo available in this range.

Foot cream

This was a new product for this company and it didn't disappoint. I don't really use cream on my feet as I don't like the greasy texture of most foot creams but I was impressed at how quickly this one absorbed into the skin.

Hand cream

I have to be very careful with hand creams as I have eczema on my hands and I cant use anything with added chemicals so this cream was perfect for me as it is all natural and I had no reaction itchiness or redness.

Guest soap chamomile

I have to be careful with soaps as well because of my eczema but like the hand cream this soap is completely natural and also the chamomile is very calming to the skin. Again I had no adverse reaction no itchiness or redness.

Strawberry lip balm and cool mint lip balm

These contain sunflower oil, which is rich in Vitamin E and Omega 6 to strengthen skin, Coco Butter which moisturises the lips, and Beeswax which helps with healing. My five year old daughter and I loved these lip balms and I was happy for her to use them as they have no added nasties.

They also do a lovely gift bag which is just £2 and this makes a nice extra touch as you can put together the products of your choice.
