Win a Month’s Supply of WaterWipes

Skin on skin contact with both my babies has been one of my most favourite experiences, the connectedness I have felt is out of this world.  But what I didn’t realise was the sheer power it has on a baby.

WaterWipes Giveaway

Lois Wattis, Midwife, Nurse and Author says, “The skin of a newborn baby is extremely delicate and sensitive. Skin to skin contact has so many benefits for a baby, from helping to reduce stress and supporting sleep, through to aiding their adaptation to the big wide world and boosting mental development. Skin to skin contact stimulates baby’s instinctive reflexes to breastfeed and enhances bonding”.

WaterWipes released a film (below) that captures an experiment by world-renowned ‘skin to skin’ expert Dr Susan Ludington. The film shows the science behind skin to skin and the natural power a mum has to care for her baby. It’s certainly a confidence booster and had me in tears.

Andrea Hawes from WaterWipes says, “This film reveals the biology of skin to skin contact, the ability of mums to soothe their new baby, and highlights why mums shouldn’t let anything come between them and their baby. We have launched the #PureLove campaign to support new mums, inspire confidence and demonstrate that all a baby needs is you.”

Why don’t you watch the film and share your reactions and personal experiences using skin to skin contact in the first few weeks of your baby’s life?

Why I love WaterWipes

I love using WaterWipes. They’re 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract and I am 100% confident using it on Miss M’s new skin, on Master E’s face when wiping off the remnants of his peanut paste toast and I even use them for myself to remove my makeup. I’ve tried numerous brands of baby wipes with both my children and find many of them to be very strongly scented, even if they are labelled unscented. WaterWipes also maintain their moisture well.

    Everyone has an opinion and please yourself which ones you choose to listen to, you don’t have to do anything that you don’t feel comfortable with, just concentrate on the bond between you and your little one and everything else will work itself out.

    I think we need to remind all new Mums that they are the world leading expert in their own bub!

    My best advice would be to boldly say no to visitors, if they have had kids they will understand, and offend anyone you need to, because your bond with baby is more important than a Facebook Selfie with extended family.

    Trust your instincts – if it doesn’t smell good don’t wipe!
    If it smells like you could drink it, then wipe away!

    Try to relax and enjoy the experience and try not to over think it

    Don’t take things personally or to heart. The first month is such a sensitive time where everyone is finding their feet, so it’s important to remember that.

    You’re doing a great job. While in the middle of the night it might feel like they’ll last forever, the baby years pass incredibly quickly – enjoy the sweetness of the first month.

    Steer clear of comparison.
    The world is filled with women that look like they have it more together than you.

    Supermum is a fable. Listen to you instincts, they will be correct most of the time. You know your baby better than anyone

    All the pain, sleepless nights will all be worth it holding your little one in your arms.

    I’m having baby 14 (not a typo lol) and I have learnt a lot along the way. This takes me back to when I had my first little baby boy and I put a lot of pressure on myself to do this motherhood thing perfectly. I wish I knew all of this with him, it might have saved a lot of angst!
    Intuition is an important and powerful thing- be guided by it. If you feel something is wrong get it checked out.
    You cannot do everything and you don’t need to prove anything to anyone- even those with seemingly picture perfect lives have probably shoved the mess into the nearest cupboard…lol….
    Babies cry and it isn’t your fault if yours does more than most- they have their own little personalities and are just as different as us adults!
    You can’t hold your baby too much, there is no such thing as spoiling a newborn! Enjoy as many cuddles as you like without worrying about routines etc…you have plenty of time for that later when baby is old enough- if you even want to.
    And finally, everyone has bad days- even us experienced mums! Tomorrow is a new day. You’re doing great even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.

    Mums are often the only person in a young baby’s life that can effortlessly calm them down. That alone s confidence – just by being a mum you have the magic touch!
