Sterimar Nasal Spray was prescribed by the paed due to his snuffle. It helps to moist his nose and airways and clear the mucus. I apply it during his bathtime and also before he goes to sleep. Its very safe for babies coz its basically just salt water. You can get this at most pharmacies. For newborns and babies, just make sure you take the one for age 0-3yo as it comes with a smaller nozzle.
Bud’s Nappy Time Change Cream is basically just a diaper cream. My older kids had sensitive skins and mild eczema when they were babies, so this time I chose Bud’s as its organic and supposed to be gentle for baby’s skin. So far it works well for Ali and I love the texture and smell too. Another good diaper rash cream which I used for my older kids is Sudocrem. I will certainly use this if Ali gets nasty diaper rash. Again, you can easily get these 2 from any pharmacies or baby’s stores.
Minyak Telon is actually an oil use for newborns and babies to avoid colic and gassy tummy and also keep the baby’s body warm. It smells good too. I normally apply this on Ali’s tummy (around the belly button). You may get this oil from any baby’s store, pharmacies and supermarkets.
I found out about Elixir for Soraya range from her IG Elixirforsoraya. I’m a fan of essential oils and have been using Young Living oils for quite sometime especially for my kids. I was looking for a simpler version to apply to the kids on daily basis and found the IG. Basically they sell essential oil balms which I like coz its very compact you can just carry it anywhere with you and not to mention the benefits you get. I bought 3 types of balms: Respire (for blocked nose, flu, cough and sinus), Immunity (for immunity, antibody and germs-away) and Collywobles (for stomach discomfort, constipation, heartburn, indigestion, colic, gassy tummy and nausea). On daily basis for Ali i just use Immunity by applying just a dab on his soles and spine. The other two i use it as and when he needs it.
Last but not least is a gentle and usually short massage (coz Ali gets restless easily after bath) using Bud’s Infant Cream which also can be purchased from any baby’s store and pharmacies.
