Hello, what products( for example moisturiser,baby oil, medicines) did you find helpful?

Plain olive oil was the single most useful (later added drops of lavender). I preferred vegetable to mineral!


Only medicines as prescribed (or OTC as recommended by HCP) for the newborn period.

None !

Maybe gripe water or coiled for colic but actually after dc. 3 in pretty sure the unsettled screaming evenings / cluster feeding etc are just what happens and they do grow out of it eventually.

All the colic " things to do " are probably treating parents more than baby as knowing you have done something rather than have " nothing you can do to help " takes your stress levels down !

Water wipes (see Amazon)

They now say don't use baby wipes for 6 weeks but water wipes are allowed.
Otherwise they tell you to use boiled cooled water and cotton wool which would be a huge faff
