    I used baby powder. Not all the time because of the cancer risk but it was the only thing that stopped my daughters nappy rash. I tried all the creams and oitments. Nappy free time but the powder worked.

    Another baby product I hated and would never even regift to anyone os the love and care tandem I was given. Handles too short, awkward to stear, any toddler over 10kilos would cause the front wheels to buckle. Worst pram ever.

    Yes it does, trust me! That's how I knew he was ready to go up to the next teat.

    I love this thread!

    I totally agree with the avent anti colic bottles. Always leaking. The old ones were great!

    I had a phil and teds sport with my dd2 and got a phil and teds explorer with dd3..... Sport was fab, explorer not so much! Sunshade always coming off, so awkward to get up and down and all round just not an improvement in the older model sport at all. The sport was way better! I was very disappointed and sold it.

    I think all Johnson and Johnson products in general should be avoided

    I also bought some of the naturals ones but I hated them. The tops/teats/lids take up too much space in my microwave Steriliser, they lids are impossible to flick off with one hand and the teats sink in when DS drinks from them.
    Your either doing them up too tight or he needs to go up a teat size. When he starts to drink you should hear and see all the air bubbles rising up inside the bottle. I never thought the other ones were bad, just PIA. Yes, the lids can be difficult to get off until they wear in a bit.

    I was told this, but that cornstarch powder is fine. I'm off to google.

    I looked into this years ago. Evidence inconclusive and talc needs to be applied to genital area for it to be risky. Unless there has been something more recent finding a link sounds like a precaution rather than a cause.

    Eta cornstarch is a common treatment for severe nappy rash. I used it for DD2 when nothing else would work.

    It's very personal I think, I love my changeable and don't see us changing him else where any time soon. The baby bath I love to, it lives in the bathroom and drains straight into the shower drain (we don't have a bath it was taken out for the lady before us who was in a wheelchair so we have a giant shower instead) our son is 9 months and just sits upright in it also saves water. We also love our gro egg. Our ds was tiny when he was born we actually had to rush out and buy 00000 and 0000 for him the 00000 he was in for a month or so and the 0000 were for a couple of months so some people need clothes that small. My mum gave me a hard time for packing the one 0000 and one 00000 in the nappy bag for the hospital just in case she didn't think I would need less then 000 which is all she had purchased for us. The padded high hair my ds sits in better, ones without padding he slips around too much.

    Things I wouldn't buy are j&j products and I wouldn't buy a baby swing again. I didn't plan on getting any muslin as we were going to use the love to dream but ds was so small we couldn't for a while so have to use the muslin wraps. There are probably more but that's all I can think of.

    Actually anything with the ingredient Isothiazolinone should be avoided. Commonly called MI or methylisothiazolinone or anything that sounds like " thiazolinone".

    Causes severe skin allergies and sensitivity with prolonged use. Used In cosmetics, shampoos, baby wipes etc as a preservative & biocide (stops bugs growing). In fact dermatologists & allergy specialists believe it's a common cause of nappy rash!

    My daughter has had severe reactions on her face from using sunscreen & wipes with the ingredients. Once we worked out what was causing it & stopped, her skin cleared up over a week or so.
