Mums Take the Itch Out of Eczema, The Natural Way

Founder Kelly recounts “Distraught and sleep-deprived, being kept awake night after night from incessant scratching and skin damage, I designed the first Bamboo Bubby sleeping bag and it gave our whole family peace of mind and a good night sleep!” And her customers couldn’t agree more “The first time ever my baby has woken without red eczema cheeks was the first time I used the Bamboo Bubby Bag” says Natalie, and Katie “The sleeping bag has been great. My daughter suffers quite badly with eczema and sleep times have always been a challenge. The adjustable arms are great and the fabric is lovely. She has looked much better in only 1 week of use.”

Kelly recently came across another Mum who has created a product to benefit her eczema suffering children, Felicity O’Donohue who came across goats milk as a natural soother for eczema plagued skin, launched The Karma Soap Company, a range of handmade soaps that are free from additives and packed full of goats milk, that she sources so fresh she even gets to pat the goats it comes from.”My research into Eczema suggested that goats milk soap and moisturisers could reduce swelling and itchiness in the skin, this inspired me to make soaps that were all natural with a base of goats milk, when I used them on my sons skin the results were wonderful.” Says Felicity and her customers have had the same great results; Anna wrote “I noticed using the goats milk soap helped a lot with my son’s eczema. My mum also loves the goats milk soap as she suffers from terribly dry, flaky skin all year round”.

When paired together the two make a wonderful bedtime routine, Felicity says “For a peaceful eczema relieved sleep we recommend bathing baby in a cool bath using The Karma Soap Company Plain Goats Milk Soap, follow with a gentle massage using Goats Milk Moisturiser, a story in a dimly lit room and then popped in a Bamboo Bubby Bag and into bed.”

Mum and nutritionist Sonya Reynolds of the Right Bite sees many concerned mums looking for natural ways to soothe their young children’s eczema naturally “Mums today are more sceptical of creams and over the counter treatments, they are looking for a natural approach. Products like the Bamboo Bubby Bag and The Karma Soap Company Goat Milks Soap give them an alternative to get results without the concern of harsh ingredients. Diet plays a huge factor and for Eczema suffering babies fermented foods like plain yoghurt as well as anti-inflammatory foods like fish can help. In some cases a baby probiotic is ideal and can be mixed with breast milk or formula to help heal the insides of even small babies”.
