Tiny gets the worst nappy rash I have ever seen. No matter the frequency of the nappy changes, if she's not well, then she'll get nappy rash. And it's so bad she arcs her back, clamps her legs together and cries 'no, no stop it' when you're trying to wipe her little bot bot, even if it's just water and cotton pads.
Luckily my sister's friend, Lindy, is in the know. She's come to the rescue with Nappy-Goo. Developed and formulated by the Pharmacy Department at the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne, it's a thick, soothing cream to help prevent, manage and treat nappy rash.
Nappy-Goo contains Zinc oxide, Hamamelis water (witch hazel water), and Melaleuca oil (tea tree oil) to provide a soothing cream with mildly astringent and antiseptic properties that can help to prevent, manage and treat nappy rash. It smells pretty damn good too.
Here's a list of Nappy-Goo stockists around Australia.
I think it would make a swell inclusion in a new baby gift too. Well.. Not just the cream, but as part of a wee hamper.
