California Baby Calendula Cream

I bought this to use on my baby's diaper area on an as-needed basis. I did not realize this before, but sage (which is found in this product) apparently reduces milk supply for breastfeeding mothers. That's not such a big deal to some people, but I had also bought the California Baby Calendula Everyday Lotion, along with the California Baby Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash. I bought those extra two products for the rash-like bumps all over my baby's body. For me to use all three of these products on a regular basis would require me to come in contact with these sage-containing products every day, or at least on a regular basis. I'm not interested in anything that can get absorbed into my body and negatively affect my milk supply, especially since I've been told time and again by my maternity doctor and family doctor to avoid coming into contact with products that have sage in them. *sigh*

I suppose using the California Baby Calendula Cream every once-in-a-blue-moon wouldn't hurt, but it's the combination of all three products I own that concerns me about the effects on my milk supply in the long run, even if they are minimal effects.

California Baby Calendula Cream

My baby developed eczema on her cheeks when she was 2. In a book on natural remedies, I have read that "calendula cream, preferably in choline base" is a good moisturizer and anticeptic. I bought California Baby calendula cream and Weleda calendula cream at the same time. At the time (6 months ago) California Baby cream worked better and for a good reason: calendula was listed 2nd (after water) on the ingredient list, so there was enough calendula in the formula to make the cream effective for healing. Weleda listed calendula 6th or 7th. This week, I ordered a new jar of California Baby calendula cream. It came in looking different (the label design is new) and calendula is now 7th on the ingredient list (which means that there isn't as much of it in the formula anymore). Very-very disappointed. What used to be a superior product has turned quite average (without any notice to the consumer).

Calendula, nature's first-aid, is in California Baby Calendula Shampoo & Bodywash. Its slight astringent action makes this all-natural botanical blend with herbs, rich emollients, and natural sunscreens rehydrating and refreshing. The herbal bouquet of calendula is enhanced by California Baby's signature aromatherapy Calming blend.
