Winter is here and in the depth of dark, dreary months it can help to have a few tricks up your sleeve, particularly when it comes to parenting.
In today’s blog post I share a selection of parenting products which we’ve been using to alleviate seasonal complaints and help make everyday life a little easier.
As a parent to two little ones I’ve known, used and loved Milton products for the last few years. Milton Sterilising Tablets kill 99.9% of germs and work in cold water in just 15 minutes – perfect for sterilising baby items. I love using them to sterilise breastfeeding equipment, baby bottles, 360 cups, small plastic toys and bath toys.
With our littlest Thrifty Bubba now starting the weaning process, sterilising his weaning equipment using Milton has helped to give me peace of mind. The Milton Antibacterial Surface Spray is perfect for cleaning and sterilising the high chair between meals.
We also love the Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser – its 50ml size is small enough to easily fit in a changing bag and is suitable for use on babies from just 3 months old! Plant based, it kills 99.9% of germs in just 30 seconds and its foam texture is fun for children to use. Gentle on skin, we have found the Milton Antibacterial Hand Sanitiser to be a hero product, especially when experimenting with baby led weaning and with the threat of covid.
Cold snaps often mean Eczema and Contact Dermatitis make my hands dry, sore and cracked. Frosty mornings and biting wind can also whip moisture away from lips leaving them sore and irritated.
Luckily, Blistex has a lip infusions range with three focuses: to hydrate, to nourish and to soothe. The advanced lip care formula is easily applied. Simply twist the stick and apply evenly in dry, cold or sunny weather. Importantly, it moisturises lips for up to 24 hours but doesn’t leave a greasy feel.
We’ve found applying this hero product before the school run really helps combat the drying effects of Winter weather. With its handy pouch attached to a bookbag, Thrifty Bubba can even use it preventatively before heading out on to the playground during the school day.
When it comes to Winter, a good soak in a warm bath can be comforting. Bath time has always been enjoyed in the Thrifty household but as a parent, it can be challenging to find a bath time product which is kind to skin and eyes as well as having a wind down scent.
Infacare is ultra mild and PH balanced meaning it is gentle on baby skin which is 10 times more delicate than adult skin. A little goes a long way with this hero product making it cost effective particularly when so many long lasting bubbles are created from just a small squeeze! Available in 400ml and 750ml bottles you can choose the size which suits you.
We’ve found the recently launched Infacare night-time baby bath to be very soothing with its gentle, powdery, oriental fragrance. It has even improved the baby Eczema on the back of littlest Thrifty Bubba’s knees.
Thank you again to Milton, Blistex and Infacare for inviting us to try your products and for sending us samples. They have become firm family favourites!
