Hi, i think it is preferrable to use body sprays with natural smells like lemon,orange etc rather than perfumes cos they are harsh in smell.Thanks Oge
Definately try out the body shop moonflower spray, it's really nice. Not too sure if you get the vanilla one in the body shop's in the uk (I'm in oz) but that is also really nice. Boots also had their own brand of vanilla body spray that was nice when I lived over there a few uears ago.
Hope that helps
if you ladies have a Lush store by any of you they do a great range of solid perfumes that come in little tins, are about £3 and all natural I used them when BF my LO and knew I smelt gorgeous without over powering smells too strong for baby! cause they're solid oil based they make your skin soft too and don't have the chemicals of some body sprays. boots botanical range do something similar I think though its a bit dearer.
after a while you do resign your self to smelling of milk and babies though lol its like that advert that was on a while ago...can't remember what it was for but it was a guy narrating it and said when I kiss your beautiful neck you smell of perfume and a little bit of baby sick!
My little boy is 15 months now and I stopped breastfeeding him three months ago, and I can promise you I didn't spend a year au natural! I swopped my usual spray deodorant for a gentle fragrance free roll-on for the first few months after he was born but then I went back to using my normal spray and baby wasn't bothered at all. I also echo the comments above about Lush solid perfumes; I used Flying Fox on my wrists, behind ears and along clavicle so I felt sweet smelling but it wasn't so strong or in an area that would affect baby. I also used Lush showergels - the fragrance isn't strong but lasts all day (hubby can come home after a 10 hour shift an I can still smell the showergel on his hair!). To be honest it felt like a miracle to get washed and into fresh clothes every day in the early weeks of breastfeeding, so while deodorant was a must perfume usually got forgotten...
