Sudocrem Care & Protect review

Sudocrem Care & Protect open on changing mat

Nappy changing is one of those inescapable baby care tasks that you are required to perform several times a day, and not always in the comfort of your own home where everything is to hand. It’s therefore important to make on-the-go nappy changing as efficient as possible.

One of the most useful baby items I’ve bought is the mini changing mat from JoJo Maman Bebe. It has space for all the changing essentials so you don’t have to lug your whole changing bag to the toilets when you’re out and about – unless a full outfit change is in order.

I keep mine stocked with a few nappies, a packet of Water Wipes, a handful of nappy sacks, antibacterial hand gel, and Sudocrem Care & Protect barrier cream.

When it comes to baby skincare products I want to be sure that anything I use will be gentle on Tall Boy’s delicate skin. Sudocrem Care & Protect is hypoallergenic and free from artificial colours and preservatives, making it feel like a safe option for him.

Fortunately we haven’t had any real problems with nappy rash but there are times, usually after a multiple poo day, that Tall Boy’s bottom gets a little red from wiping. When this happens I want a cream that will soothe his skin and prevent it from getting raw. I have found Sudocrem Care & Protect to be perfect for this. It is intended to offer triple protection against nappy rash by sealing in the skin’s natural moisture, acting as a barrier against the chemicals in urine and poo, and containing Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5 to keep Tall Boy’s skin soft and healthy.

The cream has a thinner consistency than other nappy creams I’ve tried, which means that it absorbs in to the skin easily and doesn’t leave residue in the creases. It works well to soothe redness and has a calming, delicate scent.

It comes in a handy tube, with a flip cap that is designed to be used with one hand, essential when you are wrestling with wriggling legs and trying to avoid a shower! Opening the cap is easy in comparison to the screw cap you usually find on nappy cream but the consistency of the cream makes it a little too eager to escape the tube and I usually find myself having to wipe up the excess, which is somewhat counterintuitive – fortunately it doesn’t seem to make a bad hand cream either.

I’ve not had enough experience with nappy rash yet to know how effective this cream is at preventing it and it’s not designed as a treatment; but for use to soothe the first signs of redness it has, so far, worked a treat.


I was offered a free sample of Sudocrem Care & Protect in exchange for a review. Opinions are my own, and based on my own experience.
