This post is an entry for the #BepanthenProtects Challenge, sponsored but Bepanthen. Learn more about how to protect baby’s sensitive skin on

I was recently sent a box with Bepanthen Cream and a book and penguin teddy inside from Britmums to try for the last 2 to 3 weeks. As a mum of 4 I’ve had a million nappies to change and 4 little bums to protect.

So back to the Bepanthen what is it exactly:

Bepanthen is clinically proven that it forms a transparent, breathable layer, helping to protect your baby’s skin from the irritants and rubbing that can cause nappy rash. It has a kind to sin formulation:

  • No fragrances
  • No colours
  • No preservatives
  • No parabens
  • No antiseptics
  • Contains provitamin B5 to help skin to repair its natural protective barrier

Nappy rash affects 1 in 3 babies at some point so protecting your baby’s bottom from getting red makes perfect sense, instead of waiting for your little one to suffer from a sore bottom.

The good thing about Bepanthen is so gentle it can be used straight from birth, including with premature babies and as often as required.

The most common cause of nappy rash is a combination of soiled nappies and friction. Nappy rash is also more likely to occur if your baby is premature, unwell, recovering from vaccination, weaning, suffering from diarrhoea, or prone to hereditary eczema.

With the first 3 children I hardly had to use nappy creams on them only when they where really poorly. But with the toddler bless her struggles with a sore bum alot. One thing that we found up set her recently is just a change in the nappies we were using. I couldn’t get hold of our normal ones and ended up having to get the stores own brand and within a couple of hours she had a sore red bum bless her. So i reached over to the change bag and grabbed the Bepanthen and within a few hours her red little bum was back to normal. Its amazing stuff. Its not only when baby has a sore bum but also as a layer to protect their little bottoms from the causes of nappy rash.

The best thing about Bepanthen is that the tubes are perfect to fit into you bag, change bag or in the bathroom cupboard/baby change box. I have the 100g tube in the toddlers change baby and a small 30g tube in my hand bag as it comes in handy not only for their sore bums but also helps with those little bits of sore rashes you get now and then. Plus the 30g is perfect sized from my bag so if we are out in a rush and don’t have the change bag at least I have it around in case I need it. Its one of the only things I have found that works perfectly with her baby skin which makes me a very happy mummy.

So how do you use Bepanthen Nappy care Ointment?

You should use a thin layer of Bepanthen Ointment that is applied to your baby’s clean, dry bottom after each nappy change, or as often as required. Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment offers additional comfort for the baby being non-sticky as well as convenience for mums as it does not need to be cleaned off at the next nappy change. The flip-top lid makes Bepanthen convenient and handy to use. But it needs to be stored in a dry place at a temperature below 25°C.

Bepanthen is something that we will continue to use while she is in nappies and will continue to pass on how good it is to all i know that are struggling with sore baby bottoms and want something that not only helps to heal it but also helps to stop it coming back.
