Sometimes, I can be cheap. Like break-out-in-hives-if-something-is-over-$100 cheap. I’m getting better but until now, spending around $15 a pop on lotions and soap for a newborn was just crazy talk. I mean, at the end of the day it’s all the same stuff right? Just different packaging….
Cut to my newborn son, Sammy, with horrible cradle cap. I went to Target and bought whatever brand of newborn shampoo that was on sale. It got worse….much worse. At one point he looked like one of the models in a Head & Shoulders commercial!!
After a couple of weeks of watching him suffer (BAD MOMMY!) I finally sucked it up and bought Mustela’s Stelaker treatment made especially for babies with cradle cap . What an amazing difference! Within a few days, his cradle cap was gone and his skin skin is soft as – well – a baby.
I’m not going to lie and say I love spending this much on shampoo BUT what can I say? They made a believer out of me. I guess sometimes it pays to pay, especially when it comes to your kids.
