Vital Baby Nurture Health and Safety Kit Review

I was recently sent the Vital Baby Nurture Health and Safety Kit to review. The kit includes 3 items which are a digital bath and room thermometer, nasal decongester and a flexisafe thermometer. They are silicone and BPA free. These are all ideal products to have for newborns which makes this a really handy kit to have.



When the kit arrived, I was instantly drawn to the colour of it. I love how bright all the products are. This is proving quite useful at night time. There's nothing worse than searching for things that don't stand out in dark rooms.

My favourite item of the 3 has to be the bath and room thermometer. It is ridiculously cute. I love the fact that you can use it in the bath and in any room of your house. I am one of these people that has a very hot bath so I am useless at getting the temperature correct for my daughters. It's vital to get the temperature correct for newborns as they can't regulate their own body temperature. 
To use, you place the teddy in the bath and then start to fill it up with water. The digital display tells you the temperature and also flashes red as a warning if it's too hot. It will also tell you if it's too cold. I think this is a great feature as i'm always concerned about the bath or bedroom being too hot but I never seem to think about it being too cold. The temperature is displayed quickly.


Once Ophelia is older she will really appreciate this thermometer when she can play with it properly like her sister does. 
As you may know I am currently on holiday in Australia. The kit has come away with us. I am finding our teddy extremely handy here to monitor the temperature in the bedroom. As you can imagine the temperature is rather high here, so the room is either too hot or too cold, once the air conditioning is on. 

The thermometer has also been used many times since Ophelia has been born. Between the snuffles, general worrying over having a newborn and the teething (yes you heard me correctly, she is teething already) I can honestly say it's had its uses. 
It can be used orally, underarm or rectally. On a newborn, I find orally to be very difficult as they can't keep their mouths closed. The most accurate way of taking their temperature is in the rectum but I don't like to do that. I've been using it underarm. 
It's fairly simple to use. Once the temperature has been taken you hear a normal beeping sound accompanied with the temperature reading on display. If it's too high the beeping will be quite fast. 

The nasal decongester is honestly something I never thought I would use. However, having a newborn in the winter months has meant it has been invaluable. I have heard of people manually sucking the mucus out of their babies noses but I just could never bring myself to do that. 
To use you simply push the bulb, place the device in your babies noise and then slowly release the bulb. It's perfectly sized to allow your thumb to push the bulb inwards. The tip is also a good size for Ophelia's nose and is soft. 
Ophelia had a very bad cold and this worked wonders to help relieve her. I have to say that I find this doesn't work very well if there is only a small amount of mucus. It only works if there is a lot of it which is why it was great when she had her severe cold. 

Overall, I think this is a fab, handy kit for anyone with a newborn. It would make a great gift as they are all essential items. It's a very good size too. It doesn't take up a lot of room. As mentioned earlier, the kit has come to Australia with me, so it's also handy for travel purposes. 
You can purchase it here, Health and Safety Kit.

  9. I had a nasal decongester for J when he was younger and it was an absolute blessing! Never would I have thought something so simple would make a difference, but seeing the bogies up there and not being able to stick my finger up there was a killer, haha!

  10. How cute is that bear though! We used to have a bath thermometer but it was pants! Maybe we should have looked around a bit more and brought a half decent one!

  18. Other good forms of essential oil for your restless leg include rosemary essential oil and lavender essential oil. These have a double therapeutic function in that they do not only heal the legs of the pains, but they equally stimulate the mind to function at its maximum. essential oil diffuser hq
