Let's face it, we've all picked up a baby a time or two that smelled less than perfect. Sure we imagine babies with powder freshness, but sometimes, they can smell like a sour burp cloth, too.
But is perfume the answer?
I don't know. I understand a want to have a child smell fresh and clean but is masking - with what is likely a strong perfume - the answer? I know some adults that hate perfume smells, these poor babes don't get a say.
What do you think? Great idea? Not for you and your child?
If your baby stinks...bathe him! :)
I would not use it. I am one that does not us a lot of perfumes because they give me a headache. I think it is silly to apply it to a baby. Bath your baby regularly and wipe them down if they spit up. Yes my daughter had times where she did not smell perfect but she was a baby and I also said that is her baby smell. I also have a friend that searched all over for a perfume used specifically for babies. She is hispanic and it was something they used on babies all the time. I remember telling her she is a baby and doesn't need perfume. Let her have that baby smell.
Yeah, I'm with the rest of you. If the baby "needs" perfuming, then a bath is the answer. Not perfume.
The only time I can remember my infants stinking would be, well, when infants would naturally reek! Change the diaper or the clothes (or both -- sometimes they'll amazingly upchuck and engage the other end simultaneously), and generally you're golden :)
Okay, so not a lot of feedback but the three of you that did comment are working along my thought process. I do understand there are some parents that would be interested, but not enough to market such a product I would think?
I'm scratching my head here. :/
