Because a happy baby is a happy mommy – and vice versa. We unbox our bellababy goodies that have thrilled both mums and bubs this May.
Motherhood is a beautiful and exciting journey. Every step is filled with a sense of adventure and uncertainty – you never know what your precious little one needs next. That’s what our bellababy subscription is for. In May, each item was specially picked to combat any impending emergencies that might come your way. Read on and consider this your baby-and-mummy quick fix kit.
Nappy rashes are not uncommon for babies, so a nappy balm is naturally a must- have essential for every mother! Included in our May bellababy box is the Mater Nappy Balm, a soothing cream that delivers a gentle touch to your bubba’s red and delicate bum. It forms a layer of protective barrier to repel wetness while keeping skin moisturised.
While on the topic of your bubba’s sensitive skin... always opt for a mild bath formula. We recommend Simuolive Olive Baby Hair & Body Wash. It is boosted with nutrients and hydrating benefits that will cleanse and nurture for full baby-soft skin effect. (Yes, baby-soft skin is a reality.)
For your baby’s daily nutritious intake, look no further – the Holle Cereal Sachet offers a tasty range of baby cereals created from bio-dynamic and organic farms. When on the go, remember to keep a Holle Fruit Pouch in your nursing bag. This pureed fruit pouch gives your little one a quality healthy snack that he/she will love.
Mums deserve an equal amount of screen time too! First off, great news – you can now look like you’ve repaid your sleep debt thanks to the Chella Cinnamon Highlighter Pencil. This versatile make-up pencil is great to create contours and can be used as a highlighter on darker skin tones. It’s never wrong to show off a post-pregnancy glow with a little bit of help.
If you have problematic skin, or if you’re suffering from problematic skin due to hormonal changes during pregnancy, look to hot mama Miranda Kerr. The Kora Organics By Miranda Kerr Blemish Gel features a superb blend of concentrated botanicals to help you combat blemishes.
We also featured two handy moisturisers in the May bellababy box – the John Plunkett Multi Vitamin Moisturiser and Milk & Co Ultra Light Face Moisturiser. Powered by Vitamins A, B3, B5, C and E, the John Plunkett Multi Vitamin Moisturiser works to tune down skin discoloration such as redness and tackle any early signs of aging. Ideal for sensitive skin, use it in the day and at night. If you prefer a lightweight product in the day, use the Milk & Co Ultra Light Face Moisturiser. Also great for all skin types, it contains ultra-hydrating and soothing agents Jojoba oil and Aloe vera, and a dual technology of DuraquenchTM to leave a light, rejuvenating layer of protection against radicals.
Finally, slather on some serenity and energy with Aveda Stress Fix Body Lotion. Clinically proven to relieve signs of stress, it delivers all-day hydration while exuding an aroma of French lavender, Lavandin and Clary sage. Take it from us – your precious little one will be snuggling up to you all day.
