Sudocrem Care & Protect*: Keeping your baby's bum happy

Changing nappies is probably not the most exciting or lovely aspects of being a patent, but making sure you care for your babies bum should always be important.

Joey is 12 months old now and he hasn't had any nappy rash so far (touch wood). The first thing I realised after having Joey is that keeping him clean and dry is really important. So i'm always forever doing the sniff tests and prodding to see how full the nappy is, as soon as I know he's done a poo I'll get him changed straight away. Whenever I change Joey's nappy I'm always very organised and have nappy, wipes, nappy cream and sometimes kitchen roll (if it's a messy one) laid out so I can get the job done as quickly as possible.

I've mostly used a supermarkets own brand of nappy cream and never had any problems. I have used the other more expensive brands but only if I'd had a sample from our bounty packs.  Recently we were sent a sample of Sudocrem Care & Protect cream which is a nappy rash ointment that is designed specifically for babies - that offers triple protection against nappy rash at every nappy change:
1. Creating a protective barrier that seals in the skin’s natural moisture and protects even the most delicate skin against external irritants.
2. Conditioning the skin - Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5 helps to protect the skin and keep it soft, healthy and moisturised.
3. Guarding against infection - As well as sealing in the good stuff, Sudocrem Care & Protect acts as a barrier to protect delicate skin from the bad stuff, like the chemicals in urine and poo, and from chafing and rubbing.

I've personally used Sudocrem for years on my face because of my acne and i'm sure most of you use Sudocrem after baby has starting getting nappy rash. The good thing about Care & Protect, if used at every nappy change is to try and prevent nappy rash appearing. It also comes in a handy tube that is 1 hand friendly. The Care & Protect cream is a different consistency to normal Sudocrem, it's lighter and more runny. When I used Care & Protect for the first time it shocked me at how runny it was but it does have a nice smell to it.

Sudocrem Care & Protect is available from a wide range of stockists and comes in two sizes 30g and 100g. Depending on what size you go for you should expect to pay between £3-£10. It seems to be a great product but seeing as though we've never had any problems with Joey's previous nappy cream I don't think I would switch to Care & Protect. The £10 price tag for the 100g tube seems a bit excessive compared the the £1 we've been spending on his usual nappy cream. If you're a first time mum and worried about your baby getting nappy rash then I'd definitely give it a go.
