Cussons Mum & Me Baby


Mum & Me is a new range of products for all stages of pregnancy, bump care and baby care created by Cussons who have been taking care of hair and skin for over 100 years so they know what they are doing when it comes to bringing out new products. 
The whole range was designed by mums so Cussons could find out what we really wanted when it comes to products and then get their experts to develop this range based on 1,200 real mums thoughts and ideas.

The range comes in three stages:
  • Bump
This range includes a lot of camomile and lavender to help soon-to-be mummies relax and unwind. Stretch mark cream to boost skins elasticity and Cool and Relieve soothing spray includes peppermint for an instant cooling effect.
  • New Mum
This range is all about repairing after childbirth and quick fixes to stay looking good even when you don't feel it. Not only does it include a dry shampoo for when you don't have time to jump in the bath, it also has Stretch mark fader cream and Cleanse and Protect hand gel which kills 99.9% bacteria and is great for use after nappy changes.
  • Baby
The baby products are an ultra mild and hypoallergenic range. It includes all the baby products you'd expect but also has a Sleep Tight balm which is great for relaxing your baby before bed, as is the Sleep Tight massage oil.

Ultra Mild Head to Toe Wash


The one main thing I like about this head to toe wash is that fact that there's no changing needed, it's shampoo and body wash in one container so I can just keep it at the side of me and use without having to fiddle around grabbing other bottles. 
The scent is beautifully blended, the chamomile so relaxing but not overpowering, just a gentle aroma great for soothing Charlie before bed.  
A gentle formula that is kind to eyes and gentle on babies ever changing skin, it washes off easily and leaves Charlie's hair feeling soft and clean.
We have tried many shampoos and body washes die to the fact that we all have sensitive skin and luckily this one is great and causes no problems for Charlie's skin or mine for that matter which is great to know we can use such a great product not just for Charlie but for Thomas too.


Sleep Tight Balm
I always find that Charlie settles when I rub gently just behind his ears and now with this Sleep Time Balm I have something to use that will also help to sooth him to sleep at night time. Again as with the head to toe wash it contains chamomile which is known for its relaxing and calming fragrance. 
The best way to use this is by rubbing on the pulse points like the wrists, insides of elbows and behind the ears as it will help release the calming fragrance settling your baby before bed and it definitely worked with Charlie. I think the scent plus the massaging sensation calmed him and within 5 minutes he was asleep so calmly in his cot and for the first time since he was born he slept all night straight through.


The range is available to buy from Tesco, Boots and Sainsbury's.
