I have a 16 month old DS.
Tangle buster comb (lots of curly hair!)
Loreal 'no more tears' mango shampoo - twice a week.
Simple bath lotion.
Aveeno moisturising lotion (really recommend!!)
Still using the first tommee tippee sippy cup.

I also use loreal de tangle spray on none hair wash days otherwise I can't get a comb through it and he looks wild! I totally avoid Johnson stuff at all cost.

Brush - any. Have brushes knocking about in a few locations. Had a tangle teezer once but it was re purposed to be a (toy) horse grooming brush, only need one for long curly hair, not other hair types IMO.

Bath wash/ bubbles/ shampoo - Aldi 3 in 1 kids shampoo/ bubble bath/ shower gel.

Hair wash once a week unless it has food or paint in it.

No lotions and potions necessary for kids with no skin problems. One of my 3 gets dry skin like mild excema occasionally - the thing that clears it up like magic is lanolin, used only when needed.

Oh yes mine all used the tommee tipi cups from about 6-18 months, then gradually switched to an ordinary cup. Had a phase of sports bottles for when not at the table from about 18-30 months old.

15 mo DD
No hair brush needed she only has small lounge of hair she has a comb she pretends to brush with grin
Usually use Asda little angels bath products
Use johnsons camomile shampoo as it keeps her small amount of hair soft usual every other day
Sometimes out baby lotion on usually Asda but not all the time just if skin is a bit dry
Uses a 2 handled cup with a suck spout or a tommee tippee cup

Amount of hair not lounge

I have a soft baby brush from boots but tbh his hair dries completely straight anyway so I don't use it often.
Johnsons no more tears shampoo, hair washed with water every bath time, shampoo once a week or less as he hates it and screams blue murder.
Just water in the bath or he eats the bubbles.
No moisturiser either he doesn't need it.
Tommee Tippee active sipper cup.

Zsazsabinks Sun 08-Feb-15 15:12:56

Tangle buster (a revelation, loads of thick curly hair and she doesn't feel a thing!)
Johnsons no more teas
water and soap (dove or palmolive)
Aveeno body cream
Ridiculous but glass jar, my DD2 refuses to be patronised with a plastic cup when everyone else has glasses. All very hipster in this house!

Zsazsabinks Sun 08-Feb-15 15:15:22

Hair wash all the time because she loves to rub a bit of food into it. If I can get away with not doing it then I don't.

MsJupiter Sun 08-Feb-15 15:22:25

Large long bristle brush, looks like a clothes brush (might actually be one)

Dentinox cradle cap shampoo (only use once or twice a week)

E45 Junior bath foam - sls free which very few are, only one that doesn't irritate DS's skin

Aveeno moisturising cream - love this!

Tommee Tippee active straw cup. DS can use an open cup but has a high flinging rate so I keep life easy. He still has some milk in a bottle each day, don't tell the HV!

my two are 2&3 now but since ds (eldest) was born we've had to be very careful with what we use on his skin as he has eczema and quite often gets flareups.
They bathe every 2-3 days in either plain water or with e45 bath lotion. No shampoo or soap. We use ultrabase cream on both their skins 3x daily, along with mild hydrocortisone cream when needed. We use a normal comb on both dc's hair.

mumofboyo Sun 08-Feb-15 16:17:28

and since being 1 both dc, who're now 2&3, have used a tommee tippee sippy cup - the one without a valve and a spout thing that just folds up&down. They now use it without the lid.

Tangle teaser brush
Tesco baby toiletries
Anyway Up Cup

Alanna1 Sun 08-Feb-15 22:09:39

We're at 20 months now but have been doing this for ages.
Any brush.
Any cup - either open or sippy, glass or plastic or just from a water bottle.
Hair wash - only about once a week. A kids brand. Often johnsons, sometimes loreal, sometimes another one.
Cream. She gets mild dry skin and has epiderm from her GP. I use that or johnsons baby cream or olive oil.
