What the Parenting Manuals Don’t Tell You – from Bepanthen

To support new parents in the sometimes tough but wonderful transition into parenthood, nursery staff can direct new mums and dads to a brand new resource from leading nappy care ointment Bepanthen. What the Parenting Manuals Don’t Tell You, is a new e-book that gives an honest depiction of modern day parenting from those in the know. 

Developed in collaboration with parenting expert and midwife, Lisa Clegg, the tips that form the book were crowd-sourced from parents via social media and paired with humorous and warm-hearted sketches by illustrator and mother, Alyana Cazalet.

Lisa Clegg, The Blissful Baby Expert, maternity nurse and mum of three, said, “Designed to make parents laugh, help with some brilliant ideas, and to show them that they are not alone, this e-book collates tried and tested advice from real life situations. While it’s important for new parents to find their own way, the invaluable insights from parents who are already on this journey can help make life just a little bit easier when the going gets tough! I’m really proud to be involved in this initiative and hope both parents and those caring for little ones find these tips useful – the e-book is also a great resource for nannies and nursery workers who are looking for new tips and tricks to deal with young children.”

Bepanthen is the number one selling product when it comes to protecting against the causes of nappy rash1. The cream forms a transparent and breathable layer to help gently protect even the most delicate skin against the causes of nappy rash; this is especially important at bedtime, when the nappy is on for the longest period of time. The ointment not only helps to protectbabies’ bottoms from the causes of nappy rash, but cares for it with pro-vitamin B5; gently aiding the natural recovery of skin whilst keeping it soft and moisturised.
