    I'm pretty sure you can get avocado and almond oil from the supermarket. I had avocado oil but found it a bit green and it smelled strongly of avocado. Almond is nice though. My coconut oil doesn't have a fragrance, but you can add nice essential oils if you wanted to.

    I'm not sure if someone already suggested it, but you could just add a bit of olive oil to her bath water.

    Awesome I'll grab some
    I go with the rule of thumb that if I can eat it I can put it on my skin. It's not always the case when things have been processed down, refined etc like as in essential oils but my kitchen items transfer very well to the bathroom! Coconut oil is great for cooking with, frying pancakes, chucking in smoothies, good on fungal rashes, used as eye make up remover too!!

    Nada, nothing as his skin is so angelic and soft anyway there's no need.

    But I still use baby powder when nappy changing as its so nice and makes sure his bottom is all sweet and dry before nappy goes on,

    Loco, I get mine from our local IGA. It's just the type you cook with.

    When I was pregnant my midwife told me to never put anything on my bub that I couldn't eat myself. So no johnson n Johnson or any chemical/perfumed crap.

    I love the smell of the avo oil. I think it smells delicious and 'earthy'.

    I used a Burt's Bees baby bath oil in her baby bath, and sometimes massaged her with a Gaia oil after bath. Once we switched her to our bath we had to stop using oil as it made our shower/bath slippery.

    Yes, I use a Gaia moisturiser or Milk Baby massage oil (both all natural/organic) after every bath while massaging DS. It relaxes him for sleep.

    I also use Gaia shampoo as I luuurve his hair smelling gorgeous

    DD1 i never used any creams - she has great skin.

    DD2 has the same dry skin as i do so she gets smothered in cream after her bath. i vary it sorbolene, moogoo, dermaveen and at the moment goats milk body lotion
