Why cant I get Dentinox cradle cap shampoo?

 

***Update*** 5/4/17 – New Information in BLUE!

I Spoke to the manufacturers of the product today who said a ‘reformulated’ Dentinox shampoo will be available at the end of October 2017.  They could not confirm the date and had no further information about what the difference in formulation would be but hopefully we will have more information soon!  I’m glad its coming back as it is a great product so I just hope the reformulation does not effect its efficacy!

Have you been left frustrated by the current shortage of Dentinox cradle cap shampoo?  I have, for personal reasons as well as professional!

I have spoken to the manufacturer of the product DDD Ltd in the UK who have assured me that it has not been discontinued – the problem relates to a production delay.  They have told me that it will be available for us to buy again but so far have not been able to offer any estimation of a date.  They have taken my details and will update me as soon as they have a date and I promise to update you all at that point too!

dentinoxIn  the meanwhile I would just like to say that there is no need to be stuck – there is an excellent alternative for this product available which is known as Capasal Therapeutic Shampoo.  It is suitable for use on cradle cap on children and is safe to use regularly.

We have this available online for all of you fellow frustrated mums so if you need it just CLICK HERE 

Dentinox and Capasal are excellent at treating persistent cradle cap but there is some more gentle options also available as described in my full cradle cap blog – CLICK HERE 

I hope this helps to clarify the current situation but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me in Milltown totalhealth Pharmacy on 01-2600262 (Sheena) or by messaging me on the WonderBaba facebook page!

A WonderBaba Guide to Teething!

Teething… some babies breeze through it barely noticing the arrival of their new teeth…some babies…well they feel every part of every tooth! In my experience if your baby feels it then you pretty much do too 🙂 On average teething begins at six months of age.  This can vary greatly as some babies are even born with teeth whereas some take over a year to cut their first one.  The good news is that most babies will have a full set of milk teeth by the age of two and a half so whilst it may feel like it will go on forever I can promise it won’t!  Teething early or even being born with teeth is not a problem really other than for two reasons.

Cradle Cap! What it is and how to heal it!

cradlecap6Cradle cap is the name given to flaky, yellowish patches of skin which occur on a babies scalp usually within the first three months of their lives. The cause is not fully understood but it usually clears by the time a child reaches two to three years of age. It may last just a few weeks or even a few months. It does not generally cause any discomfort for the baby. It can be a little distressing for parents though as it can be quite prominent visually and you feel you want to do something to help.
