It's The Small but Significant Things That Matter

As Lil Pumpkin often teaches me, it's not just the big things that matter. It's the small, but significant details as well that reflect how much we, as mothers, love and care for our family.

It is making sure that her BFF Monkey is tucked together with her during bed time...

That she has her favourite packet of crackers in her bag to snack on in school if she's hungry...

And that her little toosh is well taken care of with the softest of toilet tissues :)

You might remember that Lil Pumpkin has eczema and requires a lot of attention to her skincare regime. There hasn't been any major flare-up recently, but prevention is better than cure. Other than her usual cold showers and moisturising throughout the day to nourish her dry skin, we are also mindful that we don't irritate her sensitive skin with rough surfaces from clothes, towels or even tissues.

It's not just caring for face or hands as her eczema flare-ups of dry, red patchy skin can occur in any part of the body, even at the bottom. That area can't be neglected too so we look out and purchase super soft toilet tissues like the recently-launched Kleenex UltraSoft Aloe Vera toilet tissues. It is enriched with aloe vera that is well-known for its soothing properties and in that way, I'm sure it'll be gentle enough for Lil Pumpkin.

Have you ever used low-quality toilet tissues before? They are usually very much rougher and tear easily. Just use the toilet tissues at any public toilet in hawker centres or bus interchanges and you'll know what I mean. Sometimes they're so bad I've to use my own tissue for Lil Pumpkin!

The Kleenex UltraSoft Aloe Vera toilet tissues are available at major supermarkets and hypermarts at only S$7.95 for 10 rolls. For thicker, stronger, softer and more absorbent toilet tissues which we all appreciate, I think that's rather good value-for-money! It's not just for Lil Pumpkin, but the boy likes Kleenex Aloe Vera toilet tissues too because as he puts it, they are "thick enough so that your fingers don't poke through". A factor that's very important to him when choosing toilet tissues :P 

If I'm going to mind what kind of food Lil Pumpkin eats or what clothes she wears to care for her sensitive skin, I'm going to mind how I care for her precious bottom too. Right down to what toilet paper we use as it's all about the smallest but significant details that matter....

Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure using super soft toilet tissues at home that don't scratch her bottom helped in her easy transition from diapers to potty as well as they feel just as comfortable as when we used the moist wet wipes to clean her bottom after she soiled her diapers heh.

Kleenex's hypoallergenic hand & face wipes are enriched with aloe vera extract too. I like to pop the pocket-size hand & face wipes in my handbag to keep Lil Pumpkin clean when we're out and about. Especially useful during meal-times since she's such a messy eater haha. Their facial tissues are enriched with cucumber extract, which are just as soothing and gentle.

With the whole range of Kleenex quality tissues and wipes, I've got Lil Pumpkin covered from her delicate face to precious bottom ;)

As an ulcerative colitis sufferer, I know all too well how irritating cheap toilet tissue can be. I haven't seen this tissue here yet, but I will definitely be on the lookout for it!
