At the beginning of May I was invited along to an event in London, hosted by the lovely people from AVEENO - who I have previously worked with before, you can read all about that here.

I was very excited to go to the event and learn some more about the new products which AVEENO have added to their range, notably the AVEENO Daily Care Range which has expanded in 2017.

I have been using the AVEENO Baby range with my sons for many months now and I can't fault the products. They have never irritated my boys skin and has left them feeling soft and nourished. I have also developed dry and sensitive skin since having Beau - it was something I never suffered with previously, so I went in search of something to help that too and that's where AVEENO came in.

I've also begun using AVEENO's products myself and can only rave about their shampoo, it's amazing! Not only does it leave my scalp feeling a lot less itchy, but it also leaves my hair looking shiny and healthy too. It's a product I love and can't recommend enough.

The event in London was fantastic. Not only was it hosted in the most beautiful, Instagram worthy room I have ever seen, but the activities we experienced that day and the new products we saw, all left me with a sense of wanting to be close to my baby and live even more wholesomely and healthily then we already have been doing. It was such a lovely feeling to walk away from an event with.

I tried baby yoga for the first time (albeit with a doll, Beau was back home with his Nana) and I really loved it. I've always wanted to try yoga and I'm so glad that I finally had the chance to do it.

We were instructed by Dai from Tatty Bumpkin and had a lovely ocean themed session with sea creatures, a mermaid and bubbles galore - such a lovely sensory experience for the babies.

As you probably know, AVEENO's products are formulated with naturally active colloidal oats and during the event we also got to sample some delicious, healthy dishes created by founder of 26 Grains Alex Hely-Hutchinson.

Alex created a very healthy and moresish looking Baby Bircher Muesli with apple and beetroot and this is something I definitely have to make for Beau. You can see the recipe in the video below.

Alex also made Savoury Oats with Parmesan for us all to enjoy at the event and I know it sounds quite silly, but I'd have never have thought of putting oats in a savoury dish. It was so delicious though! You can see the recipe in the video below.

I have been using the AVEENO Baby Daily Care products given to us at the event, with Beau these past few weeks and I have to admit, I've loved using them with him. I have been using the AVEENO Baby Daily Care Cleansing Milk to cleanse his skin after he gets mucky playing in the garden as it's soothing on his skin.

The AVEENO Baby Daily Care Baby Moisturising Lotion has been a firm favourite of mine. It has a classic baby product scent ( does that even make sense?) and it leaves his skin feeling so soft every morning after I've massaged him with it before bed. It's also suitable for his face, which is great as it can be a bit of a pain having to use two separate products for face and body, especially when you have a wriggly baby to contend with!

I've been using the AVEENO Baby Daily Care Baby Hair & Body Wash in Beau and Tyler's bedtime baths and it leaves them squeaky clean - but not dried out. Due to it's mild formulation this can be used on a daily basis and it also has a lovely scent too.

Beau is in the midst of painful teething at the moment, which means that the skin on his bottom can become quite irritated. Thankfully, the AVEENO Baby Daily Care Baby Barrier Cream helps to soothe his delicate skin when used during nappy changes.

AVEENO is a brand which I love using with my children and on my own skin too and I will continue to do so as it works amazingly well for us and I just love the products.

*This is a collaborative feature on behalf of AVEENO, however, as always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
