Needless to say, my expectations of having perfectly healthy and smooth skin ended when I had Catherine. I was washing my hands so much when she was a newborn that my hands became cracked and dry…and they’ve never gone back to their original condition.
Not only that but Catherine developed a mild case of eczema, complete with dry skin and diaper rash, during the winter.
What to do? I had no idea since I’d never had such dry skin on my hands (literally!) before. We experimented with lots of different lotions but never found one that we loved and that worked completely. Let me just say that, had we found Noodle & Boo last year, we wouldn’t have had to continue on our search!
Noodle & Boo is a mom-inspired product designed to soften and heal children’s sensitive skin. All of the products found in Noodle & Boo are developed to nourish, replenish, and protect delicate and sensitive skin. Named after founder Christine Burger’s two son’s nicknames, Noodle & Boo strives to produce the highest quality products by using the finest ingredients available.
Not to leave the mamas out, Noodle & Boo caters to moms-to-be and new moms with their line called glowology maternity. Not only does it soothe cracks, stretch marks, and dry skin but it also soothes a mother’s mind–because they recognize that some ingredients applied to skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream, glowology maternity checks every ingredient to make sure that it cannot hurt a developing baby or nursing newborn. Thoughtful and smart!
We had the opportunity to try the Nourishing Hand Lotion from the glowology maternity line and the Ultimate Baby Ointment from Noodle & Boo
The Nourishing Hand Lotion is great! I like that it contains vitamins A, C, and E and cool sounding ORGANIC ingredients like marshmallow, sweet almond oil and white tea. It goes on thick but smooth and you don’t need a lot for it to make an immediate difference. I noticed by the second day of using it the lotion that my hands looked noticeably better. In fact, I even started applying it to rough spots on my elbows, knees, and feet with great results!
Noodle & Boo’s Ultimate Baby Ointment is dermatologist and pediatrician-tested and can be used to combat diaper rash, cradle cap, eczema and other rough skin patches. We used the Ultimate Baby Ointment on her rash as well as on the small patches of dry skin that came back this winter and, after a few days, her skin is noticeably smoother and less irritated. We’re very happy with it and Catherine even walks around the house with it, asking to put it on her “boo-boos”.
After stints of living in the Midwest, Northeast, and England, the Monkey’s Mama (AKA Allie) currently resides in Atlanta with her wonderful husband of 6 years, “J”. Together they have one daughter, Baby “C” with a surprise Baby “2” on his or her way in February.
The Monkey’s Mama takes great joy in being a Christian Stay-at-Home-Mama. In her spare time, she loves to run and race competitively for her local track club, read mystery novels, and walk her cats Churchill and Thatcher outside on leashes!
You can find her at Monkeys on the Bed or on twitter @monkeysonthebed.
I should try this out. My youngest Isaak started getting baby eczema back again when the air started getting drier.
