Being a new mum can be daunting, you got through the pregnancy and took care of yourself by using the best pregnancy beauty products, but now there's someone else in your life that needs your undivided attention that you need to look after. We would do anything to protect our babies, and that goes as far as their skin too. Because it's more sensitive than ours, you can't use the same products you use on yourself. What you need is the best baby products to make sure that you're keeping your little ones baby-soft.

Much like the best products for sensitive skin, products formulated for babies tend to be free from parabens, dyes and alcohol. They help to nourish and protect the skin from irritation.

With the arrival of the Meghan and Harry's Royal baby imminent, baby fever is well and truly in the air, so we grilled a group of new mothers about their must-have baby products. We asked them to tell us which products they just couldn't live without and this is what they revealed...

Meghan Markle and Archie were spotted yesterday watching Prince Harry at the Polo. What was spotted next to Meghan? Nivea's Sun Protect & Moisture SPF Spray. We already know that Meghan Markle is a huge fan of Nivea products, so it's no wonder that she trusts them to protect her baby son's skin from the sun. Whilst we can't quite see which one she opted for, we reckon she probably chose the SPF30 for kids.
