It’s thick but soft.

Baby wipes that tear easily or dry up right away are a waste of money. Pureen’s baby wipes are thick and soft, which makes changing time a breeze for your baby since it gets the job done in a couple of swipes, and the softness won’t irritate your baby’s delicate skin.

It’s convenient to bring with you or leave in the nursery.

One of the best things about those travel packs of baby wipes, like Pureen’s Baby Wipes in pink, is that you can stash it inside your diaper bag without it taking up too much space. If you want to avoid the chance of leaving your baby wipes behind when you head out, put a travel pack inside your diaper bag, and use the Baby Wipes Jar in your child’s room, so that you’re sure you’ll have one ready at all times. Choose between jars that have 150 pulls, or 200 pulls.

It’s gentle on your baby’s skin.

BabyWipes

Some babies’ skin get quite sensitive, making their mums fret over looking for a product that’s safe yet effective for their baby’s skin. If you notice some irritation or redness on your baby’s skin, look for a baby wipe that’s fragrance free and has ingredients that will help soothe the skin. Pureen’s Baby Wipes with aloe vera and Vitamin E is fragrance free. In addition, the added ingredients are made to soothe, not irritate, your child’s skin.

It can be for other uses.

Baby wipes are primarily used for cleaning up your baby during changing time, or to clean surfaces or anything that might come into contact with your baby. But the usefulness of baby wipes extend to so much more, from wiping up spills, cleaning stains on clothes in a jiffy, or getting the hands of those who want to interact with your baby clean and ready (meaning, germ-free!)

The whole family can use it.

While it’s essential for your child to have baby wipes wherever he or she may go, they’re not the only ones who may benefit from the convenience and cleaning powers of a baby wipe. Parents will find it handy when cleaning, from food spills to those “accidental” marker drawings on the walls. It’s also gentle enough for adults to use on their face as a makeup remover, making it the easy way to wipe the day’s dirt off your face. You can also use it when you need to use the bathroom, or to clean your clothes, or to keep you cool during those extra hot days. The possibilities are endless—talk about more bang for your buck!

Baby Product Terms Explained

What you need to know to protect your sensitive baby’s skin from irritation

You might have seen them while shopping for products for your baby. They have these splashed across packaging and featured in different types of advertisements.: Hypoallergenic, PH balanced, fragrance-free. What do these terms in baby products even mean? And what do these mean for your baby’s skin? Here’s a quick guide to understanding these terms and what it could do for your baby.

 

HAD

Hypoallergenic

This means the product is formulated to minimize allergic reaction even in baby’s allergy-prone skin. It is clinically tested safe for use in sensitive skin and doesn’t contain potentially skin-irritating substances. Pureen Hypoallergenic Detergent, for instance, leaves no chemical residue on fabric and does not irritate baby’s delicate skin. It has no bleach or phosphate that can cause skin irritation.

 

SPPowder

Antibacterial

This means that the product contains substances that kills bacteria and suppresses their growth. It, thus, prevents the spread of germs and protects babies from a host of diseases caused by bacteria. The Chlorhexide found in Pureen Skin Protectant Powder, for example, makes it a potent anti-bacterial defense against germs.

 

BabyWipes

Fragrance-free

What we think is always good (because it smells good) might be bad for baby’s skin. Fragrance in most products contain alcohol that can cause skin irritations. A product that’s fragrance-free and alcohol-free means it doesn’t have harmful chemicals that can be too strong and thus irritating for baby’s sensitive skin. To avoid skin irritation use only fragrance-free products like Pureen Baby Wipes. This is alcohol- and paraben-free and is made from biodegradable plant-based substances.

 

nappyrashcream

Antiseptic

Similar to anti-bacterial. Antiseptic means it contains substances that fight germs and keep them from spreading. Antiseptics, when applied on skin, prevent the development and spread of infections and prevent the growth of microorganisms in baby’s skin. This is normally seen in diaper creams that are formulated to protect your baby’s bum from skin irritation and infection. Pureen Nappy Rash Cream has antiseptic properties for the prevention and treatment of nappy rash. It can relieve symptoms of itchy and sometimes painful atopic dermatitis in babies.

 

rekito

DEET-free

DEET is the common term used for N,N-Diethyl-m-toulamide, a substance used in most insect repellants. It does not actually kill mosquitoes but repels them. So, why do we need to make products for babies DEET free? There have been research in the past that shows the harmful effects of DEET in very young children. So it’s best to chose mosquito repellants without it like Pureen Rekito that is tested safe for use for children 1 year and older.

 

liquidcleanser

Plant-based surfactants

In an effort to be more eco-friendly, many cleaners are now made with plant-based surfactants instead of harmful petrochemicals. Plant-based surfactants are substances derived from plants and are added to cleaning agents. They are natural,  more eco-friendly since, when mixed in the water system, it isn’t toxic to fish and other aquatic animals. These products are also deemed safer for use in cleaning baby’s things like bottles and utensils. Pureen Liquid Cleanser for Bottles is formulated from plant-based surfactants and safe to use in cleaning baby’s toys, bottle, utensils, and even fruits or vegetables.  

Pureen products can be conveniently purchased online from Qoo10, Lazada and Shopee.

The ready-for-anything mum’s diaper bag packing list

Heading out for the day with your child in tow? Stocking up your diaper bag with the utmost essentials will give you peace of mind that your baby’s safety and comfort will be taken care of, no matter where you might be.

bag

 

Before you became a mum, you’ve probably wondered on why mums would bring out such huge diaper bags with them, when the human that they need to take care of is so tiny!

But now that you’re a mum, you realize that the tinier the human, the more things you need to bring with you—you’d bring along the contents of his whole nursery if you could! But since you can’t do that, how do you zero in on the essentials, but still make sure that you’ll be prepared for any booboo?

Here’s a list of things to bring that will address all the minor concerns you’ll have when you’re out and about with your child:

1.  2 complete sets of clothes

Remember to match the clothes with the weather, and to bring a jacket in case you’re headed somewhere with the AC on full blast. Two sets of clothing might seem like a little too much, but it will save you from worrying of running out (and frantically buying clothes for him on the spot.)

 

2.  Two or more nappies

If you’ll be using reusable diapers, remember to bring along the cleaning product you use for it as well.

 

3.  Changing mat

You never know where or when you’ll be able to change a diaper, and sometimes there’s no bathroom in sight. A changing mat, or even just a long piece of cloth, will be of great help to you when you need to change the baby’s nappy, pronto. 

 

4.  Baby wipes

While other mums prefer to use water and cotton balls, that system isn’t particularly handy during a changing emergency. Baby wipes are much more handy, especially when you’re changing a squirming baby who won’t lie still! Another plus—it comes in handy when you need to disinfect any surface, from high chairs to new toys.

 

5.  Diaper crème

Keeping your child’s skin smooth, safe, and protected is a bigger challenge when exposed to outside elements. Bring your diaper crème along to avoid any redness or discomfort.

 

6.  Plastic resealable bag

Babies soil their clothes in so many different ways, from spit up to food, so a plastic resealable bag is your best friend when it comes to keeping their soiled clothes from contaminating the rest of the contents of your diaper bag. It can also serve as an instant trashcan for your soiled diaper.

 

7.  Small towel

Isn’t it a wonder that children get so sweaty, even when it’s not even hot? Wipe them down frequently, especially during active play.

 

8.  Baby powder

Aside from keeping your baby smelling as sweet as—well, a baby, a sprinkling of baby powder will go a long way in protecting your child from sweat, redness, or rashes.

 

9.  Mosquito spray

You won’t be able to stop your baby from wailing or scratching an insect bite, and that scratching might lead to a wound or infection. What’s worse is that an innocent-looking insect bite might even turn out to be more, like dengue or Zika! Banish your worries away by keeping a travel-sized mosquito spray with you.

 

10.  Feeding bottle

When it comes to a hungry baby, you’ve got to feed anytime, anywhere! Bring enough bottles with you, depending on the length of time you’ll be out.

 

11.  Milk formula dispenser

Even if your milk formula comes in a travel pack, it’s best to put the milk formula into a dispenser for easy access and mixing.

 

12.  Water (if already within age)

Children sometimes remember to drink when they’re completely parched already. It’s better to bring your own water with you, especially if they’ll be playing or moving a lot. If your child prefers their milk warm, an insulated water container, like a Thermosflask, will keep the water you’ll mix in with the milk powder at the right temperature.

 

13.  Toy

To make it better, let them choose one on their own. It will give them something fun to do while you’re out and about.
