I was contacted by Boots and asked if I would like to review some of their products. I said I would and told them I was in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy and finding myself constantly hot. I also informed that I am now in preparation for packing my hospital bag for baby 2 and myself, and was also in the process of trying to baby proof my house. Here is what I was sent:
  1. Reviving foot spray
  2. Headache cooling pads
  3. Home safety starter pack
  4. Newborn size 0 nappies
  5. Nappy Rash Spray

How to use: Shake well before each use. Aim the spray directly at the baby’s bottom and press the spray head 2 or 3 times so that a sufficient quantity of product can be applied. Try to cover the bottom with the product as thoroughly as possible. It is not necessary to rub in by hand due to the fine atomisation of the spray. The product will spread further over the bottom through natural friction

My Opinion

The foot spray - I use quite a lot even a few times a day it cools my feet making them tingly it's really lovely when they are hot after carrying my whale like body around all day so using this is a really nice calming treat and it only takes a few seconds easy for a mummy with a hyperactive 3 year old boy to contend with as well. I would definitely recommend!
The Cooling Pads - These do work to cool you but feel very odd on your head, it's not something I would recommend to have for being pregnant to keep your cool a cooling mist would be more sufficient but it's something you could use at home or if you suffer headaches :)

The Newborn nappys - I cannot comment on the absorbancy as I have 5 weeks left to go until little man is here, but I can say that comparing other brands the boots brand nappies seem to have little difference as well as the fact that they are very good value, they are sooo tiny!! They make me so excited so I will have a little man to put them on in a few weeks although I am considering using reusables too.

The Nappy rash spray - I was very surprised to receive this as I have never heard of a nappy rash 'spray' I think this is a very clever idea due to wriggly babies that don't allow cream to be put on them, I spray some on my hand and it seems like it has an instant cooling effect which I assume if you have a soreness between your legs would be very appreciated. The fact you don't need to rub means that it shortens the nappy change for the child so I definitely think this would be a good product to consider.

 The Home safety starter pack - This set has everything to 'baby proof' I like that the plug socket covers have the round bit in the middle (odd comment I know lol) The bits with stickers on.. I am not sure how long they will last I suspect that we will have to glue or screw them eventually, all in all though they seem to be made hardwearing and I am looking forward for baby 2 to give them a good try!!  

Baby Sensitive wipes -  I found these were easy to take out one handed, are good value for price and should definitely be thought about when buying wipes. Because of these being sensitive wipes it is said you can also use if you suffer with dry/sensitive skin conditions and even newborns!

If you have never thought to look at boots own products I would recommend you take a look I shall be when packing my hospital bag.
