This unfragranced butter contains shea, calendula and evening primrose oil to soothe patches of dry or irritated skin. Jojoba’s liquid wax provides a non sticky barrier to gently protect making it ideal for a baby’s bottom, around the mouth for teething dribble, to soothe skin made sore by runny noses and on the cheeks to protect against the elements. Has a gentle natural coconut aroma.
Without oils high in oleic fatty acids which may not be compatible with a baby’s delicate skin, without beeswax thus perfect for your babies face as it won’t block the pores and without essential oils.

Meet Nom Nom - London, UK
I have had the pleasure of providing nutritional advice, massage, pregnancy massage, baby massage classes and weaning workshops for over a thousand women and their babies and Nom Nom has been inspired by them and developed with their feedback.
It became clear from talking to my clients that while they were as keen as me to avoid potentially harmful and irritating ingredients, especially during pregnancy and for their babies, they were confused about which skin care products were truly natural and organic. They also needed products which were gentle, effective, practical and a pleasure to use.
This inspired me to develop Nom Nom using my background, experience and specialist knowledge from training, research and my love of making natural skincare.
To help prevent and treat nappy rash it can be beneficial to let your baby spend some time without their nappy (and a good way to include some time on their tummy). After a little airing try including some massage for the bottom – the body’s biggest muscle! You can use Baby Butter to help protect and soothe the area before putting their nappy back on. Using your fingertips massage all over the buttocks in small circular movements, avoiding any sore areas.
Massage can be enjoyed any time of day but make sure you are both ready, your baby calm and alert and you not feeling rushed. Avoid massaging when your baby is hungry or unsettled, has a temperature or seems unwell and over skin that has cuts, sores, recent bruising or is inflamed. Try to make eye contact, speak and, if you like, sing to your baby as you massage.
Moisturise your baby’s skin from within (and boost brain and nerve health at the same time) by including sources of essential fatty acids from the age of six months when weaning. Flaxseed oil, rich in both Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, is an excellent addition to the diet, particularly if your baby is vegetarian and will not be eating fish. Buy this oil in a dark bottle, keep refrigerated to protect it and do not heat. One teaspoon a day is sufficient. Add to warm or cold cereals or blend into natural yoghurt sweetened with fruit puree.
