11 Bath And Body Buys For Your Baby (That You'll Want To Use For Yourself)

Some things are too good not to share. We’ve tried and tested some of the newest, and most effective skin, hair and sleep-inducing buys for your baby, that you will want to use on yourself too.

Bloom and Blossom Gentle Baby Wash (£7.50,

Perfect if you have a sensitive pregnancy nose or prefer a scent-free cleanser, this luxurious, gently-foaming, organic wash leaves skin super-clean and soft. There’s also a grown-up version too, but you can share this generous tube with your little ones.

Sophie La Girafe Baby (from £11.99,

Who doesn’t love Sophie? And the skincare range doesn’t disappoint. Smells gorgeous, it’s free from skin irritants (and certified natural and organic) and looks expensive on your bathroom shelf. Try the lotion and oil on pregnant tummies, too.

Ambre Solaire Baby in the Shade SPF 50 (£6,

This sunscreen highlights the importance of protecting your baby’s skin, even when you think they’re in the shade - reflected rays can be just as harmful. A great sized tube to pop in your nappy bag for quick applications on the go.

This Works Sleep Wash (£12) and Lotion (£15,

First came the (amazing) zzz-inducing Baby Sleep Spray, now This Works have introduced Baby Sleep All Over Wash and Lotion. If you’re propping your sleep-deprived eyelids open, layer up all three of these lavender and chamomile loaded goodies for a guaranteed calm night. It worked for us.

Childs Farm Hand & Body Lotion (£3.99,

This never-greasy lotion is suitable for newborns, very sensitive, or delicate adult skin. The easy pump bottle is big enough for everyone to use, plus it’s 98% natural and smells divine.
Expand Image

Burt's Bees Baby Bee Cream-To-Powder (£9.99,

What a brilliant hybrid product. This goes on like a regular nappy cream, but dries to a powdery finish to absorb moisture, whilst calming irritation. Another Baby Bee favourite.
Expand Image

Method Foaming Hand Wash (£4,

If your little ones need encouragement to wash their hands, these foamy hand washes will persuade them. Each pump dispenses the right amount for tiny hands and there’s a yummy Lemonade scent (Mickey Mouse) and a Strawberry Fizz version (Minnie Mouse), plus they’re easily rinsed away, too.
Expand Image

Lavera Baby & Kinder Organic Bubble Bath (£2 per sachet,

Create lots of safe bubbles (some foaming agents can be irritating and oil-stripping on skin) with this organic foaming bath sachet. Fragrance-free, contains added aloe vera to calm sensitive skin and is great for travel.
Expand Image

The Organic Pharmacy Children’s Lavender & Chamomile Milk Bath (£24.96,

Sprinkle this luxurious milk into a warm bath before bedtime and the lavender and chamomile will soothe your baby into peaceful sleep. Also leaves skin silky-soft, so it’s worth jumping in the tub, too.
Expand Image

Johnson's Baby First Touch Oil (£2.49,

The whole First Touch range is suitable for newborns - it's free from fragrance, colour and soap, so great for very young skin. We're loving First Touch Oil, not only for keeping baby skin soft (it makes a great baby massage oil), but also amazingly fast at whipping off make-up or giving your own skin a boost.
Expand Image

Neom Tranquillity Room Spray (£16,

If your little ones tend to wind up, rather than down at bedtime, or need a little help to settle when travelling, this spray is invaluable. Spritz it onto sheets, pillows and pjs before bed (or any time you need to induce calm) and the pure essential oils of lavender and jasmine will create instant zen.
