Now that I have three kids, I can’t help but feel familiar when parents share their ‘headaches and worries’ that come with caring for their babies’ health and skin problems.
Diaper rash, insect bites, bloated tummies, coughs, colds, etc.
Like all other moms, I went through all those with all three kids.
Red buttocks a.k.a. diaper rash.
Redness on the folds of the baby’s skin.
Discomfort from a bloated tummy.
Blocked nose, leading to difficulty in sleeping well at night.
We all know, the common issue we face as parents when handling babies is, we can’t just easily pick any ointments or balsam off the shelf.
Because, these are BABIES we’re talking about!
Their skin, and everything else, is still delicate.
And really, it’s no wonder that many ointments / medicines / balsams state on its packaging how they’re meant for children 2 years and above.
Of course, we can always say that, “Neh … last time our parents also rubbed any old balsam on our chest and applied any kind of ointments when we’re babies, and we’re ok what?‘
Well, in those days our parents didn’t have the advanced information on what could be harmful to babies and young children. Today, we are better informed for sure.
The good news is, today I’d like to introduce you to these two products that are safe for babies!
Kinderen Baby Balsam and Kinderen Diaper Rash Cream.
These two are widely available in Indonesia.
In Guardian and Century pharmacy outlets, as well as in other general pharmacies.
(I heard that it’ll be made available in Singapore too, real soon! =)
Here’s a quick summary of what each one can do:
Kinderen Baby Balsam
> Warms the body and soothes blocked nose (gently rub and massage it on the chest, neck and back before bedtime)
> Helps to reduce bloated tummies
> Relieves itchiness from insect bites
Kinderen Diaper Rash Cream
> Soothes and treats diaper rash
> Helps to protect baby’s sensitive/delicate skin from diaper rash
(contains zinc oxide, calendula and aloe vera extracts)
Go ahead and read up more about it on their website, and their Facebook Page yeah!
My kids now are 10.5yo, 8yo and 3.5yo.
None of them are wearing diapers.
But with the littlest, she could still develop ‘redness’ in her ‘diaper area’ whenever she’s not washed up thoroughly with water after she relieves herself.
So for us, it is still handy to keep the Diaper Rash Cream around.
Plus, when it comes to insect bites, somehow it can happen at any time, and it goes across all ages =)
I keep the Kinderen Baby Balsam anyway in my bag.
You know, just in case.
Btw, I’ve been carrying a big bag since I had kids. I mean, I have SO many things in my bag!
(Who feels the same way? *Wave your hands*)
I feel it’s more like this ‘anything-also-can-find-in-it’ bag.
You name it.
Toy cars. Sweets. Snacks. Water bottle. Creams. Notebooks. Crayons.
Sanitiser. Wet wipes. Pens and pencils. Hair clips and hair bands.
Power bank. Clip-on lenses for my phone. Panadol and some other medicines.
Oh of course, my small make-up bag =)
(Sometimes I can find used wrappers, paper planes and some crumpled notes left by the kids. Hmphh!)
My husband sometimes says to me, why are you bringing such a big bag around all the time?
Well, it’s usually when the kids (or him) need something (when we’re outside) and I HAVE IT in my bag, then he understands. Haha.
Moms gotta do what moms gotta do =)
[These days, when Brie gets insect bites, she applies Kinderen Baby Balsam on her own. Under supervision always, of course]
