iParenting Media Awards

The prestigious iParenting Media awards have announced BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream as one of the baby care product winners of the iParenting Media Awards Greatest Products of 2009.

BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream cures even the most resistant diaper rash with its unique three way action of preventing, healing and protecting the skin all at once.

Natural ingredients are used to reduce redness and irritability of the skin while protecting from further damage caused by moisture and outside irritants.

Used as a cure and a prevention thanks to our not so secret ingredients of Manuka and Kanuka oils. Native to New Zealand these oils work great individually but together they work magic. Likened to Tea Tree oil but kinder to the skin, these oils are a perfect blend for treating and preventing diaper rash.

BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream - Prevent, Heal and Protect against Diaper Rash.

Jodee Reid, owner of BabyBaby is ecstatic about the win. “To have our New Zealand made product recognized in an International market is very humbling, we are so excited to be rated in such high regard”. Having trialed the product on her own children before launching to the public Reid knew she had a winner on her hands and now it is confirmed.

To be considered for an iParenting Media Award, companies submitted four identical samples of each product that were precisely matched using iParenting's state-of-the-art technology to experienced reviewers within iParenting's database. Products were thoroughly reviewed and evaluated by a variety of sources including experts and families. Results were compiled and submitted to the iParenting Media Executive Committee for final approval.

Independent Product Review by CoffeeGroup.org

BabyBaby have recently added a Cradle Cap Shampoo to their range, to go with their Natural Conditioner. My 3 year old daughter Emily suffered from cradle cap as a baby and despite trying oils and things, it never really went away and as her hair grew, you just didn’t notice it anymore. When she recently got chicken pox all through her scalp I noticed that the cradle cap was still there and quite bad. Add to that chicken pox scabs and her scalp was not pretty!

I used the BabyBaby Cradle Cap Shampoo on her hair at every bath or shower (it is safe to use every day) and within 2 weeks I saw a huge difference in her scalp. It seemed to help if I used the shampoo, and then the conditioner and I combed the hair while the conditioner was still in and it was so easy and tangle free and really helped get the flakes out. The shampoo foams up nicely and feels and smells great.

Since you only need to use a tiny bit of shampoo (and be careful as it does come out quite fast!) the shampoo lasts for ages so it is great value for money. I’ve been using it on 2 kids for well over a month and I’m not anywhere near half way through it.

I also gave a sample of the Cradle Cap Shampoo to my friends to use on their 4 month old daughter who has quite bad cradle cap and after a few washes, there has been an improvement already. They plan to start using it every day and I’m sure that they will be rid of it completely soon.

The BabyBaby Natural Conditioner is a concentrate so you also only need to use a tiny amount. It is a fabulous conditioner which leaves the kids' hair feeling soft, fluffy and most importantly, tangle-free. It has a subtle natural fragrance from the oils. These products are so much better than the kids’ shampoos on the supermarket shelves, and I love the fact they are made using New Zealand’s oils and Manuka Honey! I’ve used both the shampoo and conditioner in my hair and I really like them for myself as well!

I highly recommend the BabyBaby range of skin and hair care products. Jodee from BabyBaby is a mum of 4 and qualified beauty therapist and product developer. She offers advice on your skin and your child’s skin from her website. With free delivery for purchases over $30 and a 100% money back guarantee on all her products, so you can’t go wrong with BabyBaby.

Play date anyone?

For anyone who has had to make a move with pre-schoolers, you know it is not easy. When Jaimee Bigwood moved to the Kapiti Coast in May 2008 she knew with a toddler and no. 2 on the way she needed support and fast. "I wanted to make sure I had support in place in a new town - by getting out and about and meeting other parents" said Jaimee.
"A year later and I was still discovering new things to try with our baby and toddler - and I am sure there is still more out there for us. While each new discovery is exciting, having all of the information in one place would have been easier for us".

In August 2009 Jaimee launched New Zealand’s first one-stop website for parents and caregivers of children Under 5.

Playdate is a resource
for those looking for places to take their Under 5’s. The main purpose of this website is to allow parents and caregivers to easily access a list of activities in their area including:
• Play Centres & Play Groups
• Music, Movement & Story Sessions
• Pre-schooler Friendly Cafes & Restaurants
• Buggy Suitable Walks & Parks
• Special Outings
• Support Organisations
• Changing & Toileting Facilities

Being able to search for activities by day, location or category makes
playdate ideal for finding new activities in your area, or for use when you are moving house or going on holiday.
