Luuckily my little boy has not suffered too badly with nappy rash but every now and again he gets a bit of a red bottom and bits and so I like to use a cream on it just to calm it down and stop it getting any worse. I have used Johnsons baby nappy cream for a while now and really like the way it works for him.
Johnson's say that, "We know that the delicate skin around the nappy area needs extra special care to protect from the causes of nappy rash; that's why we've developed a baby nappy cream that provides immediate comfort for delicate skin from the first use. It immediately forms a layer to protect skin from the causes of irritation, and to help repair the skin's own natural barrier. The hypoallergenic formula has a light spreadable texture, ideal for everyday use. Developed for newborn skin."
The cream is white and is really quite thick. When I apply it to my little boys bottom I only need a little squirt and then I gently rub it in. The cream is the type that turns the skin white as it stays on the surface of his bottom for a little while but obviously as this is an area I cover up with his nappy it doesn't matter. Also I like that it does this because you can actually see it forming a barrier over the skin and stopping the redness as it works on his nappy rash. I put a little bit on my hand earlier to see how it would affect my skin and I can tell you that the area I used is really soft and smooth so I can definitely tell that it will work well on his skin too.
There is no real smell to the cream, just a nice fresh cream smell. I use this for a day or two and then his nappy rash really does clear up really well. I think the cream must help to keep it away too as like I've said above he hardly seems to get much nappy rash which is nice.
What I love is that you can get it in handy littte tube sizes, just 16.5g but this is so much easier to carry one of these in my change bag than a big tube of cream with all the other baby c**p I carry so I do like to buy it like this. A good nappy cream I definitely recommend.
I have wrote in previous reviews how I follow the advice of a midwife who took one of my antenatal classes that told us to work our way up through various nappy creams, keeping the strongest only for the worst nappy rash, and using the basic for general protection. Well, unfortunately my daughter is teething rather badly and for the last couple of days, the nappies have been very very runny, and so I am obviously having to change her very frequently and continually wipe her bottom after every nappy, which takes quite a few wipes! This is leaving her bum quite red and sore.
At the beginning of these bad teething nappies, I was using my Zinc and Caster cream which does a great job at protecting the skin, but it wasn't quite enough as the nappies got worse. Rather than going for my usual next stage of Sudocrem, I decided to try this Johnson;s nappy cream since I have two small sample tubes that are sitting in my baby changing cupboard unopened. Like most mothers I use Johnson;s products a lot and have always been very happy with the quality on offer, so I just presumed that this nappy cream would be equally as good and effective.
A tube of over 100g costs around £2 which I a fair price in my opinion especially in comparison to other creams on the market. This cream claims to provide comfort for delicate skin from first use, by forming a layer on the skin to protect against irritation and repair skin's natural barrier. This cream has a hypoallergenic formula which makes it easier to apply according to Johnson's.
When I first used this cream I noticed that it was a slightly different runnier texture that most of the other creams around, and I thought it felt slightly greasy to touch, but spread a thin layer, as advised on the tube, onto my daughters bum after cleaning it. When I went to change the next nappy, I actually thought that this cream had made the situation worse, and the bum actually looked redder as opposed to better. I initially put this down to the bad nappies and as they got worse I thought it was just the continual wiping making it worse. However, I gave it the benefit of the doubt and used it the next time round, after cleaning the skin, and again the skin looked worse the next nappy change, even if the nappy wasn't dirty. I really don't think this is coincidence, and maybe it is simply the case that this cream is just suitable for my daughter's skin.
All in all, for such a well known popular brand, I really don't rate this nappy cream at all. It just did not work at protecting my daughter from nappy rash and I honestly think it escalated the problem rather than solved it. I have now went straight to my ultimate cream Bepanthen which always sorts the issue out, and hopefully help get this rash under control, until these teething nappies have passed! I certainly won't be using any more of this product, and can't recommend it!
Whilst expecting my second baby, I read about Johnson't Nappy Cream. It was relatively new to the market, and I wanted to try something a little different to Sudocrem (which I had used first time round and found excellent, by the way). I also wanted a squeezy tube rather than a pot because I wear acrylic nails and find that if I dip my finger into a pot, I end up with that product all up under my nails. And le tme tell you, baby cream is really, really hard to remove from under your nails!
I paid £2.50 from Tesco for this product. It is fractionally less than Sudocrem (in Tesco anyway) but price didn't really factor in my decision to try this product. The packaging is quite nice; typical Johnson's look about it. Clinical white tube with a blue flip lid, very simple and professional looking.
I tried this nappy cream out on my newborn son when he just that; newborn. He didn't actually have nappy rash, but I just wanted to use it as a barrier against it. It is exactly like Sudocrem! Quite thick in texture and white in colour, and spreads very easily. It doesn't really have a smell as such. I believe it to be a very good product as the next time I changed his nappy, it was pretty much all still there.
My son has had nappy rash once, not severely but a little to make him wince slightly. I used this nappy cream for that; smothered his nether regions and by the next nappy change, he was all healthy and pink down there!
A very simple yet very effective cream, definitely would recommend.
The world of parenting where conversations on nappy rash and nappy cream become second nature and of far more importance than what is going on in the big wide world!!
My daughter really didn't seem to get on with sudocream so I opted for this cream as at the time it gained me extra advantage points at points and was on special offer so I thought it would be worth a try.
Cost and Stockist
I have seen this stocked in all major supermarkets as well as Boots, Mothercare and Superdrug.
The cost of this is approx £3 but is always on an offer so tends to be cheaper than this.
My daughter had what I would describe as fair nappy rash when I started using this; the cream was fairly runny and was much more like a moisturiser than a cream it had a very odd greasy feel to it and seemed to require a lot of lotion to cover the rash as it just seemed to end up all over changing unit, me and my daughter.
I was very unimpressed with this product and after using overnight I did not feel that there was any change at all if anything her rash seemed worse. I immediately applied some sudocreme and the rash cleared up.
No only good element is the tube design as I always find lid comes of the pots of cream and coats inside of changing bag the metal tubes tend to get squashed and then leak but this is more like a hand cream tube so no leaks but as it doesn't do what you need it too that isn't much good!
Because my daughter is on the small side trying to find a suitable nappy to fit her has been a challenge. Micro nappies are perfect however they do not retain enough urine and she ends up completely soaked through to her babygrow but the next size up (generally size 1) are just a little to big for her. Unfortunately due to this she has had a few little red patches on her little derriere although it isn't nappy rash it still needs treating in order it can go away! Now originally I would have opted for Sudocrem but as it doesn't suit my skin I didn't want to use it on her delicate skin so on my recent visit to Boots I had a look at their product range and despite all the choice I opted for Johnsons Baby Nappy Cream.
Johnsons is one of those brand names which we all know and probably all use their products at some point. I am a big Johnsons fan and most of my baby products are made by Johnsons. I find their overall quality, cost and general usage incredibly good which is why I opted for this nappy cream.
** What is it **
Johnsons Nappy Cream is a cream which has been designed specifically to be kind and gentle on baby's skin whilst aiming to prevent nappy rash, soothe the skin and have a gentle antibacterial action all while being a mild cream which won't irritate that delicate skin.
** Packaging **
The nappy cream comes in a white plastic tube with a blue flip top lid. On the front is the famous Johnsons logo with the item name. The front of the tube also features the mildness logo (little pink ribbon). On the back is all the usual information about ingredients and contact info. The tube is exactly the same as the baby moisturising cream.
** Use **
The cream is incredibly easy to use as you simply squeeze a small amount onto your hand/ fingers. The cream is snow white in colour and has a quite thick consistency which is quite similar to the consistency of Sudocrem. You don't need to use a large amount as the cream takes quite a bit of massaging in as it doesn't absorb instantly hence why you only need a small amount. It also goes quite a long way on the skin so using a large amount would result in it not absorbing and leaving a white residue on the skin. The fragrance of the nappy cream is incredibly mild but has a similar fragrance to talc which is very pleasant. This lovely smell soon disappears once the cream is on the skin.
Now my daughter doesn't have nappy rash just slight red patches which needed a bit of attention and my health visitor said they would easily go with using a nappy cream. Since I have started to use Johnsons Nappy Cream the redness soon disappeared and her skin has stayed soft and hasn't been irritated in the slightest but I do make sure that I don't use it on every time I change her nappy as I can still feel it slightly on her skin as it doesn't seem to absorb fully which is not a problem as it keeps the affected area moisturised. It is however easily washed off in the bath or with a wipe.
** Price & Availability **
I bought my Johnsons Nappy Cream in Boots for £2.99 which is slightly more expensive than a tub of Sudocrem but I am happy with the price that I paid as I know the tube will last for quite sometime. The nappy cream is readily available online and in various supermarkets and discount stores.
** Overall **
A very good quality nappy cream which certainly soothes the irritated area whilst keeping the skin moisturised at the same time. For me results were seen within a few days which was great. Definitely a nappy cream I would recommend.
I got a tube of Johnson's Baby Nappy Cream recently when out shopping in Sainsbury's. I can't remember the exact price, but I think that it was just over £2.00. It comes in a tube with a handy flip top, that is easy to use with one hand. The amount in it is 110g. I usually buy Tesco's nappy cream or a Boots own one, and have found them to be very good. My daughter is almost eighteen months old, and has been lucky not to have had any bad nappy rash, and we have used a wide variety of creams since she was born. The Johnson's cream is quite thick, and feels rich to the touch. I have found that it spreads around the skin very easily, and you can squeeze it out of the tube without any problems. It is also a good size to take out and about in the changing bag.
The information on the tube states that the cream is clinically proven for mildness, and has been specially developed to be kind to baby's skin. It has a 3-way action that helps to prevent nappy rash by forming a breathable barrier, helps to soothe the skin, and has a gentle anti-bacterial action. It is also mild enough for newborn babies. I have found that by applying the cream after each nappy change, my daughter's skin has remained healthy and rash free. I will probably buy it again.
After recieving a zillion free samples of Johnsons nappy cream during pregnancy, i had enough to last me the first few months of nappy changing. Luckily my daughter didn't have many outbreaks of nappy rash so it wasn't much of a problem. However i do feel that if she had suffered with it, the cream would not have been much use. The small outbreaks she did have took days to clear up with the cream and sometimes remained red for a few days after that! I thought maybe that was normal until i discovered Sudocrem. One application and within hours the redness has gone. Two days maximum and there is no sign of there ever being a rash at all. Maybe different skins react to different creams, but in this instance Johnson's did not come up to scratch for me, which i find quite sad because i swear by all their other products for keeping my daughters skin soft.
My daughter does not very often get nappy rash because I have found that the best way to prevent is to make sure that I change her every three hours or if she does a poo to change her immediately. I believe that it is the combination of wee and poo which does the damage and this seems to be the case for her. However if she does get a bit sore I turn immediately to the Johnsons Nappy Rash Cream. You can buy it in a tube or a tub and I prefer the tube. If I apply it as soon as I notice any redness and then again at the next nappy change the redness is usually gone by the third change. I think that this is good stuff.
When I had my second child Chloe. I decided to try Johnsons nappy cream. A. Because it was Johnsons and we are lead to beleive that it is the best product for our little cherubs B. Because I had had so much trouble with my first child getting nappy rash I thought if this was new then maybe it was better than anything else around. I WAS WRONG. It was greasy and was a bit like a moisturiser. Good I suppose for sensitive bums but not good for nappy rash. My daughter got some of the worst bum rashes whilst I was using this cream. Once so bad in the matter of two nappy changes I took her to the doctors as it was bleeding. I then went back to metanium and I think I will stick with it as Johnsons are not the best at everything. I know that this might not be the case for everyone but I am speaking from my own experiences with it.
My second daughter had the most sensitive skin on her bottom, even using gentle wipes would cause horrendous nappy rash for the first 5 months. We only used cotton wool and water to cleanse her, but despite this, and avoiding nappies with lotion in, she still got rashes very frequently. I found there were two creams that worked for us. Johnsons nappy cream was great for early stage rashes, if caught early, the rash would go away within 24 hours. I would definitely recommend having a tube of this cream in your changing bag as it really does nip it in the bud. For more serious nappy rash, especially if the skin has got so raw that it's bleeding, the only thing that worked was Metanium. You only use a little, but unlike other creams it actually stays on the sorest areas (some creams slide off) and is therefore able to do it's job, as well as offering some protection. This product NEVER failed to clear up nappy rash. It can take a day or two to work, but persevere. Very good value for money, I'm still using the tube I bought for my first child 2 years ago, and still have some left despite my second being 8 months old. Nappy rash is so horrible, it's a relief to know that there are products out there you can really trust to resolve it FAST.
When I was pregnant, I brought some Johnsons nappy cream from Boots on a buy one get one free. I really wish I haddent now. 1 year on and I've still got one tub unopened, and the other tub, is in the change box, and only sees the light of day if I have run out of sudocrem! The reason I don't like it, is because it seems very greasy? when you put it on, it justs moves around on your finder and it does not go on evenly. Sudocrem is great, its cold and soothing and goes on no problem. Johnsons is gloopy and messy. the only thing I did like about it was the price for the size of the tub, but I'm glad it did not cost me too much as I just don't use it! I don't have any other problems with Johnsons products, on the whole, I think they are brillient, I think they just slipped up on this one!
