Why does the cream come out all on its own as soon as the lid is off and whilst you are trying to get the lid back on?
And why is the lid so hard to get on!?!
This is my third tube and they're all the same!

Well, my metanium everyday cream got so bashed about in the change bag, it now squeezes out of the creased sides of the tube, so I feel your pain. It's not yellow staining though!

It's the juxtaposition of something that will ease an aggy child there for make your life so much easier against the dickhead tube.
A plastic tube wouldn't split! Is the stuff it's made out of any better for the environment?

No idea! Can you get cream in sachets, like lansinoh? Disastrous for environment, better for controlling mess...

Oh God I feel your pain, Metanium tubes are bastards! Impossible to get all the bastard cream out and I sliced my finger the other day on one of those sharp bastard creases!!!!

Well at least I know now I could arm myself with one if someone broke it. We'll help you compile a lawsuit.

I've decanted mine into a little travel tub from Boots. Life changing.

reward is the everyday stuff as good for nappy rash as the yellow stuff?!

baba Nothing is as good as the yellow stuff, but it's not bad.
