Baby Changing Room Awards

5 Dec

Hi folks,

Did you know that as a parting farewell gesture before Obama left the Whitehouse – he made it law for all public male facilities to have a baby changing facility? I didn’t know that. Unfortunately – we’re not so lucky over here on the other side of the pond. While lots of places do tend to offer a baby changing facility in a unisex disabled toilet… lots of places don’t. In fact… in the last month I have had to change Seth on the floor of a public toilet twice! Luckily I do always carry anti bac wipes & a changing mat. It’s just not on  though is it!? It’s even worse for Daddy’s… so many places do not offer a changing facility that men can access.

In light of this – Sudocrem Care & Protect have launched their annual baby Changing Room Awards specifically focussing on Daddy’s! I think that’s pretty exciting as me & my hubby have discussed it a lot – how he feels penalised when out & about with Seth as there isn’t always somewhere for him to change him. The boot of a car or the floor in a public toilet is not what we want for our precious bambinos!

Since 2012, Sudocrem have campaigned for change with an award scheme to recognise the need of good nappy changing facilities. The Sudocrem Care & Protect Baby Changing Room Awards are collaborating with the Dads Network & the NCT.

The categories are:

  • Retailer
  • Restaurant/Café
  • Family Hotel/Holiday Park
  • Dad’s Toilet

“Having a baby isn’t easy especially when everyday activities like shopping bring restrictions. It’s the simple things, like being able to change a nappy that make a huge difference & we’re delighted that President Obama has highlighted the need to make places more accommodating for mums & dads.” Nick Lang – Sudocrem Brand Manager.

Me & the hubby have already nominated… We have nominated The Sports Café – Sherwood Forest Centre Parcs. Not only was there Baby Changing in the unisex disabled toilet, but there was also changing facilities in the male & female changing rooms. The changing facilities were large enough to accommodate a pram – lets face it, if you’re on your own you may not want to leave your pram outside the changing room. The changing facilities also had a changing table with safety strap, disposable paper sheets to pop onto the changing table, as well as anti bac hand wash, wash basin, hand dryer & a proper nappy disposal bin.

As you can see – baby Seth was pretty happy with the facilities too! 

The winning baby changing rooms will receive an engraved plaque & the use of the Sudocrem Care & Protect Logo. Everyone who nominates will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win one of several prizes. One prize being a short break to Knoll House – Britain’s original family friendly hotel.

If you’d like to nominate a changing room – you can do so here on the Sudocrem website. You have until 31st January 2017 to nominate. Winners will be announced 28th February 2017.

We don’t want much… just somewhere clean, nice & safe to change our bambino’. It’s no longer 1950… so let’s get equality when it comes to nappy changing! 

Thanks as always for reading & get nominating!

Sudocrem Care and Protect 

16 Jun

Hi folks, 
I was sent a lovely little package of Sudocrem Care & Protect from Satellite PR, for me & Seth to try & test. 

Now, I’ve always been a massive Sudocrem Original fan. In fact… My Nana & my Mam have always used Sudocrem. It’s one of those household names that everyone knows & trusts. When I became pregnant I made myself little changing kits to keep in various rooms around the house so I was always prepared. Sudocrem is present in every kit, in my handbag, in my diaper bag & even in my first aid kit in the car. Love the stuff! It’s my go to staple for all skin emergencies. 

I use Sudocrem with Seth at every nappy change. I’m pleased to say that he’s never had a sore or pink bottom – it’s always been peachy. So, I was really excited to try the new Care & Protect. 

Straight away I loved that it was in a tube. Tubes just seem to be easy for on the go. But, I did notice that the consistency was more of a lotion – where I’m used to a thick cream. But, I wasn’t deterred… I gave it a go. I used the Care & Protect at every change for a good week. After a week I decided to stop using as I found Seth’s bottom seemed very ‘tacky’ with it. I didn’t find it absorbed into the skin as good as the original. 

However… We do love Care & Protect as we found another amazing use for it! Seth has suffered with a little dry skin on his forehead & eyebrows since being born. I’d tried other baby moisturisers & nothing worked. In fact, one made it worse. But, from the first use of Care & Protect – it’s gone! Seth also developed a little red patch in a ‘neck fold’ from a little drool that had settled in there. He’s teething early & I’m going through so many dribble bibs trying to keep him dry. I popped a little Care & Protect on it & it’s gone! It’s such a lovely mild face/body cream in my opinion. So even though I won’t be using it on Seth’s bottom, I’m going to buy more to keep in for any little skin emergencies. It has a lovely scent too. I think it almost smells a little like lavender. 

I know bambinos can suffer a little with dry skin… So why not give Care & Protect a go. Also, it won’t break the bank like some brands.

I hope you’ve found this review helpful! 

Thanks for reading ✨

Love & Huggles,
