If like me, you struggle to know what to get for a new baby as most people have practically everything they need and more. Stop searching! – CHILD FARM is the perfect gift with a complete range for baby, and the rest of the family. All their products are suitable for new-borns and up, suitable for sensitive, eczema prone skin which are all approved by paediatricians and dermatologist.
Child Farm was born in 2012, when founder and creator, Joanna Jensen’s daughter had sensitive skin and fine fly-away hair. Now Child Farm is the UK’s number one toiletries brand and available around the world.
The brand is planet-friendly, made with natural ingredients that are kind and loving to everyone’s skin types. Made from 98% naturally derived ingredients, organic essential oils and free from parabens, SLSs, mineral oils and artificial colourings. Noted for being Vegan and cruelty free, which is stamped on all products. The packaging of all products is 100% recycled ocean prevented plastic. They believe the future of today’s children is at the forefront of their minds in all they produce. This is something that is particularly important to me and do my best to source suppliers who use recycled and natural ingredients.
I received CHILD FARM’s baby bath and bedtime case, packaged in a lovely practical suitcase, with rounded top corners, sturdy handle and clasp. Fantastic to reuse; it is large enough to pack a nappy, cream and wipes and small enough that it will fit into a changing bag or at the bottom of your pram. Makes it simpler to take into a public changing facility without the bulk of the normal bag.
All the products are simply decorated in stunning colours; each look like illustrations that have been taken from your favourite childhood book. I especially love the duck; who is carrying the baby – sorry stork you are grounded!
The contents included:
Baby Bedtime Bubbles in a delightfully smelling organic tangerine. It creates abundant bubbles, with the scent permeating throughout the house, making the house smell of sunshine and happiness. After spending an extensive period in the bath enjoying playtime (or for me just relaxing); I noticed that my skin did not feel tight and dry, but cleaner and softer than before.
Baby Wash created specifically for new-borns, is a fragrance-free product, yet when I used it, I found that there was a clean fresh scent. It felt extremely gentle on the skin, and left it feeling soft and did not make my skin dry and itchy.
Baby Moisturiser packaged in a pump bottle and is lightly fragranced, which reminds me of talc and what babies should smell like. The white moisturiser goes a long way – one pump will do a child’s arms or legs; it goes on smoothly and is absorbed almost immediately.
Nappy Cream is another unfragranced product, containing moisturising, softening and hydrating shea and cocoa seed butters, as well as anti-inflammatory Aloe Vera. The first thing I noticed is how silky smooth the cream is, not heavy like many other brands I have used in the past. It is fantastic for us women who suffer from leg chafing; it takes the sting out, helps to heal and repair the skin.
Baby Bath Thermometer this is the most important part of bath time, making sure that the water is at a safe temperature. Each year around 2000 children attend A&E following bath water scalds. Now with the use of this thermometer this can keep your baby and children safe from scalds.
CHILD FARM is for EVERYONE – they have a wide range of products for the whole family. They have gift sets and individual items to include as an extra or stocking filler. This year they have gender specific sets that include a toiletry bag for keeping their own special bath time treats. The new Farmologie products include skin care and washing and bathing products.

These are definitely going on my list from Santa!
