I used infacare when my son was a baby, appart from the lovely smell and loads of bubbles I found it mild enough for his very sensitive skin, where other leading brands caused skin irratations, my son still suffers a little from ezxema, but had it quite badly when he was a baby, on bad flare ups I used epaderm, but was able to go straight back to infacare as soon his skin calmed down, I will certainly be using infacare again with our next baby.
I first started using Infacare after the birth of my first child. I spent 3 days in hospital with her and was intrigued with the gentle liquid soap all the nurses used in the babies' baths. On arriving home and wanting the best for her I set about searching the shops for a similar soap. My search ended with Infacare. It is suitable for even the most delicate skins and foams up a treat for lots of bathtime fun. Its value for money is enhanced by the fact that it can be used to wash baby's hair as well. Another added bonus is that the empty bottles make great bathtime squirter toys. When your child is dry the lingering smell is gorgeous, and hair is truly fluffy. I have used it on all 3 of my children ( youngest is now 3 ) and there has never been a single stingy eye when it has trickled in accidentally. I have continued to use it in their baths all the way through infant and junior school. It doesn't dry the skin out like ordinary bubble baths which use harsh ingredients. I know mothers who recommend it for ezcema sufferers too. Not every store sells it but I have always bought mine from Boots who regularly have it on a 3 for the price of 2 offer. The current price is 2.29 but a 3 for 2 promotion would be equivalent to 1.93 a bottle. Use your Boots points card as well for even better value for money.
The only problem I find with Infacare care is that I have to stop myself from using it all up in my own baths. The smell is simply divine and reminds me of my student nurse days in the nusery of a busy paediatric ward, bathing all the little babies then getting a sweet scented cuddle from them !! Now I use it on my own babies. Its non irritant and foams up well, and as I mentioned, is lovely to bath in! The only down side is the price, I think £2.59 is a little pricey and would like a larger volume bottle for this as I always seem to be running out.
I just love this baby bath. I had tried most others, Boots, Johnsons and supermarket own brands but I keep coming back to Infacare. It seems really mild, although my two don't have particularly sensitive skin. The smell is lovely - a proper baby smell - and if I wash their hair with it I can smell it on them all day. You only need a small squirt to get lots of lovely bubbles. I pay about £2.19 a bottle in our local 'cheap shop', it can be a little hard to track down, but I've found the smaller chemist shops often have it and sometimes Superdrug stock it.
I totally agree with s veale on this! Infacare is the best baby bath I have ever brought. It is mild enough for new born babies, and older children with sensitive skin, it keeps their skin really soft, and can be used every day. I find it helps MY ezcema as well! This bubbles up really well, which as said before, babies love!! and it lasts for ages! I think this is really good value for money, and would recommend anyone to buy it! Alough I have started using johnsons now, as my daughter is 1! I still go back to this now and then, as it smells so nice! also Johnsons can be a bit harsh sometimes if used every day, but as I said above, you can use infacare every day, and it keeps skin moistureised and soft! It also leaves babies hair soft, light and fluffy! you can also get this from chemists, but you may find it cheeper in tesco or sainsbuys!
This product i started using for my son about 6 months ago. He occasionally suffers from ezcema and is has very sensitive skin. I usually use Oilatum when he is bad but at other times we have to be very careful what we use in the bath. Infacare baby bath is extremely mild and is used alot in many hospitals, but unlike hospital products this bath product is extremely bubbly, which appeals to my toddler, and doesnt smell clinical at all. He uses it everyday in his bath, and as yet, his skin hasnt reacted to it, which is great because at £2.49 it is an excellent buy, can be bought in most supermarkets and has alot more appeal than using foamless oilatum! However i would still use Oilatum for serious ezcema flair ups! A really good buy!
