Nothing looks more painful than a little baby’s bottom covered in an angry rash, but it can be hard to find a nappy cream that soothes and protects that delicate skin as quickly as you’d like.

Step forward Weleda Baby Calendula Nappy Change Cream, which is free from any chemical nasties and full of healing, plant-based natural ingredients like beeswax, lanolin and calendula oil. This cream has won loads of awards, including one from the rigorous and highly respected midwife-tested TIPS Awards. It’s also recommended by 70% of midwives in Germany, where the Weleda is based.

What we love

Weleda products have an excellent reputation and the company is renowned for being environmentally and ethically sound. This nappy change cream is another winner. The lanolin, calendula and beeswax-rich formulation has a lovely scent and is easy to apply to a wriggly baby. It absorbs quickly and seems to soothe any soreness quickly. My little girl loves having it rubbed in and her little bottom is rash-free!

What to watch out for

Although the tube is handy, the cream can separate a bit when you squeeze it out – so you get a squirt of oily liquid before the cream itself. It can seem pricey at around £6 for a tube, but a little goes a long way.

Who is Weleda Baby Calendula Nappy Change Cream for?

Eco-conscious mums wanting to soothe sore bottoms with a pure, natural product.
