Struggling with a newborn, stubborn sleeper or teething baby? I can only imagine how sleep deprived and frustrated you must be, and I’m sure you’re willing to try anything. The mums on the Adore Beauty team have banded together to offer their solutions.
Here are some of our most popular baby care products for encouraging your bub to doze off a little easier (and allow you to catch up on some much needed sleep, too!)
The average baby cuts their first tooth between six and nine months. To instantly soothe & relieve swelling, pain and red gums, give this powder a go.
The gentle ingredients helps to reduce swelling, pain & red gums
It’s a soothing formula which contains equal parts chamomile root & conchae
Addresses the irritability, discomfort & restlessness that accompanies teething
How To Use:
Give 1/4 level 5mL teaspoon of powder in a teaspoonful of warm water or breast milk, or it can be given straight to babies eating solids, 3 to 4 times daily throughout the period of teething. You can also apply directly to the gums for quick relief.
★★★★★ Amazing product has stopped my little boy being in so much pain - Rosy
“This product is amazing, my 4 month old boy has started the early onset of teething and has been in so much pain. After adding a small amount to his milk the results were near instant. Didn’t make him sick and certainly eases the pain for my little boy. I add a little bit to each bottle and I feel assured knowing it’s all natural and has been around for years. Will be getting more when this jar runs out”
This formula has been specifically designed with children and babies in mind, featuring essential oils traditionally used to calm and relax (mums and dads can also use this aromatherapy aid for a good night's sleep!)
It’s a safe, natural, soothing bedtime balm
Features calming Chamomile and Lavender to encourage sleep
Great balm for relaxing pre-sleep massages on babies and young children

Rub a little bit of the balm onto temples, under the nose or anywhere that needs a little soothing, and let the balm work its magic. It’s free of artificial ingredients, fragrances and parabens.

For Breast Feeding:
This one's for the mums! Weleda's Organic Nursing Tea

"Worth investing in! The lactation consultant suggested I try this tea. It has been nothing but amazing for me. It picked my supply up within hours. I drink three cups of the tea per day as recommended on the packet. I highly recommend this product if your milk supply is an issue."
For Bath Time:
Bath time is often a go-to method for encouraging sleepiness, so why not introduce Burt's Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Body Wash
