Natural Cleaning Solutions

Baby Eczema, Detergents, Natural Cleaning

I came to realise early on that our eczema baby couldn't tolerate our usual cleaning chemicals in the same way that we did and this lead me to look for natural alternatives.  Thinking of him as sensitive, rather than ill I started to take our cleaning regime back to basics.  It was a nice surprised to discover that most of the natural solutions we found turned out to be cheaper and more effective :)  Keep reading for our cleaning cupboard essentials and home made recipes.  Itchy Baby's Top Picks for Your Natural Cleaning Cupboard Ecozone Micro clothes - These things are quite amazing, needing only water for impressive...

Baby Eczema, Bath time, Eczema bath study

Baths are fun! Who doesn't enjoy a splash in warm water at the end of the day and for older babies it's also a sensory learning experience where things behave quite differently to how they do on the play mat. When your infant has eczema, bath time might feel like a minefield of do's and don'ts and prescription additives.  Toys though they are always fine, thought they might need extra cleaning afterwards if you are adding oils to the bathwater. A new study discussed yesterday on the BBC reiterates what many mums know instinctively, go with what works for you...
