Logan has been having a hard time of late with his teething and this in turn has caused him to have severe nappy rash which at some points began to crack and bleed. Not nice to say the least! We had to go back to using cotton wool and water to clean his bottom as although some leading brands of wipes claim to be sensitive to babies skin they weren't. They actually made his nappy rash worse by irritating it and also stinging his little bottom.
We were really glad when Jackson Reece sent us some wipes to review for them and thought this was the perfect opportunity to try them out.
It was a tense moment before using the wipes on Logan's little bottom to see how he would react to them and although his bum was still sore when we wiped him with the Jackson Reece wipes he did not cry or try to squirm away as they were not stinging his bottom. I think the actually fact I was wiping his bottom was sore but not the wipes. Fantastic I thought and when I read the packet of wipes they contain Aloe Vera and Tea Tree Oil, all the things Logan's little bottom needs to heal and be soothed. The wipes also contain Lavender Essential Oil which smells great, is relaxing which combats stress and has a healing effect and is useful for skin problems, wounds, insect bites and stings. So by the sounds of it these wipes could be used for much much more than just bottom wiping! Oh and they contain no nasties!
Apart from the fact that these wipes are a hit with Logan they are a big hit with me. Their full packaging is biodegradable and so are the wipes which are made from wood pulp from a sustainable source. Jackson Reece are the first company to have fully biodegradable packing and wipes. They have also won numerous awards from mother & baby, practical parenting & pregnancy, practical pre-school and tips best of the best. This proves to me that other mums find these wipes fantastic and that the company doesn't have to push their product on anyone as people genuinely think it's fantastic. I am one of those people.
These wipes are available from stores such as Mothercare, Superdrug and Sainsburys. The rrp is around £2.00 for the 72pk natural herbal wipes and £1.00 for the 10pk flushable wipes. For more stockist please visit www.jacksonreece.com.
Overall these wipes are fantastic. I have well and truly been converted from other name brands to Jackson Reece wipes. And for the safety of your child's bottom I urge you to do the same. Excellent price for what you get and I would highly recommend these.
