    Hi Ladies,

    I am tri hopping to give you my tip. I have noticed alot of hospital bag threads recently.

    My one and only saviour tip is:

    A VERY LARGE TUB OF VASELINE

    2 reasons
    A) Slather it on your lady garden after birth before you pee - This will act as a barrier and prevent burn on your tenderness..... Lol

    B) Slather a little on babies bum before nappy goes on, it really helps wipe away that meconium, sticky, treacle poop they kindly surprise us with. Else you'll be wiping for 10 mins!!

    xx

    It's only petroleum jelly. I know a few who have used it and it's been fine for them. If it can go on your lips I'm sure your lady parts won't be sensitive to it x
