Have you got an itchy baby??

Just to pass on the fact that asda have baby pyjamas up to age 1 with turn over hand parts and covered feet.

Had so much trouble finding dd2 anything beyond 6 months that had to order specialist stuff/ sew scratch mitts on.

Now have itchy dd3 and I thought we were going to have same problem as mothercare seem to think babies stop scratching at 6 months..

Anyway hope this helps some of you

Poor ds with socks over his hands! I feel a little bad...

We do the soggy socks over hands here too!
Only thing is it doesn't last long until they can pull them off which you can deal with in the day but not at night which is why we had to sort something else out for night times.
Those pjs are only a fiver a pair so if you have an asda near you it's worth a try. The ones I got have tigger on them so fine for a boy too

I'll look thanks. FIngers crossed since starting neocate his has NO eczema. I really really hope it's cleared it up.

Wow lucky you!
Nutramigen improved dd2 s so much but by the time she started it at 7 months the damage had been done.
Dd3 started from about 1 month though so she's not nearly as bad

Nutramigen reduced it to the point where it didn't bother him and was well contained with emollient, just not pretty with facial flare-ups. FIngers crossed on Neocate next to nothing. Started it at 7 months, Nutramigen at 4. Before that it was cracking and bleeding and covered all his limbs completely and his cheeks and neck.

Rough isn't it :-(

I went too far and bathed him, why oh why did I do it the day before Christmas?! It was lurking ready for a bath. Only a red patchy rash, nothing bad, but not good for photos. I got cocky.

(I've just given away how often ds gets a bath)
