So, after receiving quite a few questions in regards to my posts about using Itchy Baby Co products I decided to lay it all out for you guys and I have something very exciting to add as well!
I started noticing Veyda has red and itchy skin when she was about 3 or 4 months old, it was very unnerving to watch her scratch at herself and to watch the skin get more and more irritated.
I don’t suffer from eczema and neither did any of my siblings so I didn’t know much about it until my friend Tam had her first baby, Paige. That poor baby, they would have to wrap her up like a mummy and lather her in creams. Her skin would blister and she just seemed miserable. I had never seen anything like it. So, when Veyda started to develop rashes that’s all I could think about. I wondered if I had used the wrong creams to begin with and that set her off, I felt horrible. We started using creams like moogoo and soap free washes, and at first they helped a little but they didn’t really subside the itching or dull the redness.
Being in the Pilbara the water can be extremely hard on delicate skin so I had hoped that when we moved to Perth her skin would improve but unfortunately for some reason it got worse! It was red and raw and so very itchy! I felt for her and I could always hear her scratching through her baby monitor despite covering her hands.
As we all do these days, we scroll through social media and every now and again Itchy Baby Co would pop up! On the eczema threads that people would post someone would always mention it. On Instagram I’d see a post every now and again too. So, I started following them! I had just run out of our cream that we had been using (I can’t even remember the brand, there’s been that many), when I decided to just take the plunge and order a starter pack! It came in about a week and I was so excited! It included three different bath soaks, a face mask and a moisturiser, I couldn’t believe that I got all that for such an affordable price! Veyda had just woken up from her nap so I changed her nappy and applied the moisturiser cream straight away, it was like nothing I’ve ever tried! It was so different from normal moisturisers, and don’t even get me started on the smell, it’s delicious and not at all over powering like some creams can be.
I started by applying it at every nappy change just because she needed it, and within a week or so I only needed to apply it maybe every second or third nappy change and after her bath.
Now onto the bath soaks! They are so cool! They come with the cutest little wooden spoons (which I’ve now got a nice collection of), they don’t smell and they’re so calming, they also turn the water into a nice milky looking colour. Veyda loves to help put the soaks into the bath.
Our normal bath routine now consists of running that bath, I always make sure to have the water warm but not hot as I find that can irritate her skin more, and whilst it’s filling up I apply the face mask to her legs, ankles and arms as those are her most problem areas, we leave that on until the bath is up to our normal level and then Veyda helps me add two tea spoons of the bath soak into the bath, she then gets in the bath and we rinse off the mask and continue as normal. I don’t even use shampoo and conditioners for Veyda anymore as I find that just the soak alone and a face cloth is enough to get her nice and clean. I pat her dry and then we moisturise her from head to toe! It’s a great simple little routine and Veyda doesn’t complain about the massages at all!
I was getting through the pack quite well but found I was running out of the moisturiser so quickly, so I messaged the lovely Julia from Itchy Baby Co and she told me about a discount code that can get you three moisturisers and the fourth free! How good is that?! It’s so handy when you’re using it religiously. Use code “moisturiserfreebie” at check out when you have three moisturisers in your cart!
Since using Itchy Baby Co, Veyda itches less, she currently has no scabs or open sores, her skin is less red and most of all we have had the break outs under control since starting and being consistant.
Julia is a pharmacist of 15 years who has two young children so she gets what it’s like to try and tackle skin issues! I whole heartedly believe in this product and plan to use it for many years to come. If you would like to try this product I give you no better reason than to place an order now as she has so generously given me a 20% discount off her bath soaks and bath soak assortment packs which can really give you a great idea as to what the rest of the range is like! Use code “Veyda20” at check out! Make sure you tag Itchy Baby Co in all your stories as she loves to see what customers think!
I cannot thank Julia enough for always being kind and always helping to the best of her ability, her customer service is out of this world and so hard to find these days!
