Found yesterday in Netherfield Tesco Home Plus.

Sorry, the Windows app doesn't let me add a pic, or do much else really...

Nice little bag with a changing mat inside, also a pack of extra sensitive wipes, bottle of bath bubbles, happy cream and baby oil- reasonable sizes, not the tiny trial ones.

Bit of a crazy rrp at over £12, but now at a very reasonable £3.12. Lots left.

I wouldn't recommend to use any of their product on a new born babies all the doctors and midwifed are against it as it contains to much perfume and chemicals.
We have used it in our new born baby and she had a rush all over her body when we said what we used on her to the paediatrician she said do not use their products, just warm clean water to clean baby and to bath too.
I won't recon and it if it will be for free sorry but it's cold for me.

The midwife gives out free packs that contain Johnson's products so must be recommended

Completely true. It's not recommended.

Seems a nice wee set. Heat.

Doesn't need to be used on a new born.

Completely agree these packs are given out at hospitals still as we were given one two weeks ago with our new born. Each baby is different and majority do not have any reactions to these products as they would not give them out still.

It is recommended that the first week or two you only use look warm water and cotton to clean instead of wipes etc but other than that I find these products great and decent price for the pack. ;)

how can one only use warm water to wash baby, of course babies poo and wee...they need to be washed with some soap as well...I m using on my lo since birth, and no reaction..so it varies from baby to baby
hot for me!

I agree with you with 100%. I would never use this even for free.

Keep my eyes on these kind of sets for gifts, so noticed that these were still full price in pitsea extra as of yesterday!
Also, just to add a +1 to the not bathing newborns - I was told not to bath for 1 month!
#11

who told you that?
#13
My first born has really sensitive skin so this is a no go for my newborn of recent, I find it to perfumed. I was told to top and tail for the first few weeks before bathing in just water for the few weeks after that!

I also agree, my newborn was left with a nasty rash for what seemed like weeks. hot for the find though, she's 6 months now and we've started using products.
#15
As someone already said the products do t need to be used on a newborn. My daughter uses Johnson's shampoo and bath stuff for her 5 yr old and 3 yr old. She would be delighted with this set.
#16
Also told with both mine, (6 1/2 & 4) not to bath for the first 3-4 weeks, top and tail bowl, with warm water and cotton buds was sufficient same instead of wipes as well. Looks a lovely little set and I would appreciate it as a gift, just wouldn't use it in the first few weeks.
#17
I was also told too harsh my by mw and he did have sensitive skin to start but hes fine with them now hes 16 weeks old bargain for me ill have a look in my local x
#18

You can clean them well enough with Luke warm water.
The general guidance is for the first few weeks don't bath your child, instead just top and tail them. In other words clean the input and output portals.
It's not like your new born is crawling through mud, running half marathons or playing with paint. As long as you put clean clothes on them it's fine. This also allows them to start to build up a natural resistance to normal bugs on the skin.
Then afterwards when you start bathing, again water is fine and then when you think it's appropriate start using soap related products.

The key is, don't aim to keep your child sterile. It's not natural and a bit of dirt and grime is beneficial in the long run, it's soap that's un-natural. Our wee one is now 2, we use Johnson's all the time but held of for the first 2-3 months and I'd like to think its helped his immune system a bit.

Midwives do not give out johnsons products, it's a free pack from bounty

Nothing at all to do with midwives, all to do with the NHS and money

Erm, nurses/health visitor can't remember now (she's 17 months and a whirlwind, and my brain cells have slowly depleted!)
However when I had my 10 yo, he had to have a bath before leaving hospital, so things have changed!
Also, I noticed a new range of 'newborn' john sons in tesco, presumably targeting people who can't resist bathing them in the first few weeks!

To be honest, it's a great price. And it's up to each parent and individual on whether to use these products from whatever age. For me - the midwife said before I left hospital to not use any products before babies are 4 weeks due to the sensitive nature of their little skins, so I did this. But these products can be used on any age of babies, so I don't know why there's a debate.

I agree Carla, when a baby is brand new it is advisable (as everyone should know) to keep away from products and cleaners, but once they get a bit older, give it a go......where on earth is common sense...........gone to MSE ??

Every baby's skin is different. For many babies, this is suitable. Might not be suitable for everyone though. Can't give a sweeping statement that all doctors and midwives recommend against it. Johnson's are running a company too and they want to make products that get sold and used.
#25
Definitely national. Picked one up just now at a Tesco Extra in north Worcestershire and paid the bargain £3.12. The price on the shelf said £11.99, but the handheld scanner proved its worth again and showed it at this clearance price.
#26
ive just been to tesco willenhall and scanned it full price :( deffo not worth £11.99
#27
The bounty packs are given to you from the midwife on your first appointment
#28
whilst I agree with not using products on newborns .....I was "taught" to bath my twins in the hospital at 6 days old
#29
I was also "taught" how to bathe my newborn in the hospital when she was just 5 hours old, this was 2 years ago and in another country, but im sure newborns haven't changed that much since then....and my little one never suffered for it, Infact she's an avid lover of "baffs"!

Also the midwives advise to not use them when they give you the pack.
It's their duty to give it to people but they tell you that they don't recommended using them on a new born.
At the end of the day I am just passing the message and I was very grateful that they told us so it's entirely your choice to use these product on your new born or not.
Thank you for the fees back all.

gosh!!!... its basically quicker to say.. judge johnsons as you will...and use as and when you will!! every baby is different. full stop :)
