oats for the bath

the other day i noticed rubys skin looking a little dry and flaky. so, when i put her down, i whipped up a tiny little bag. i used a flannel, cut it to the size i wanted, and attached some velcro along the top to seal the bag. inside? organic oats.

oats are a natural anti-inflammatory and help to sooth dry or irritated skin. i just let the bag run under the tap as i was filling the bath, and then let ruby play with it....

and the next day? clear, smooth baby skin.

(i have used this technique for a while now with ruby, and it works every time. i have also put the oats in a muslin bag, which works fine too.)


  1. oh yes! what a clever lady you are...a flanel bag is a brilliant idea.

  2. What a great idea. I'm going to give this a go. Thanks Jade

  3. what a fabulous idea, my son gets dry skin too- i'll be doing this next time!

  4. Thank you this is such a great tip and with the cooler weather coming we all suffer a little from this. Great excuse to bathe!

  5. Aren't you resourceful - what a great idea. Far better than some chemical-packed cream, love the little pouch x

  6. Wow, love this idea. Will be trying it with our little man who is prone to dry skin :)


Thank you for your comments. Much love x
