With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, we at CamWell want to take time to think about the women in our lives that have worked so hard to be the strong, smart, and powerful mothers that they are today.
At CamWell, many of our products focus on aiding cancer patients with skin complications. However, as a woman-owned and operated business, we also take an immense amount of pride in creating safe and effective products for Mothers and their babies. More than 8 in 10 mothers begin breastfeeding their babies at birth, but many stop earlier than recommended due to complications. This is something we at CamWell have taken to heart, and have made it our mission to aid in skincare for breastfeeding mothers.
The Benefits & Challenges of Breastfeeding
As mentioned, many women make the decision to breastfeed their babies. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists strongly recommend breastfeeding exclusively for six-months.
Breastfeeding comes with a host of benefits for both baby and mother:
- Breast milk provides ideal nutrition for infants, as it contains an ideal mix of vitamins, protein, and fat – all necessary elements for the healthy growth of your child.
- Breast milk is more easily digestible for babies than formula
- Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria
- Breastfeeding lowers the risk of asthma or allergies for a baby
- Breastfeeding burns extra calories for Mom, so you’ll lose your pregnancy weight fast
- Breastfeeding also lowers your risk of breast and ovarian cancer
Unfortunately, many mothers will run into issues while breastfeeding that ultimately causes them to stop earlier than recommended. Commonly, many moms will say their nipples feel tender, sore, and pain – this is particularly the case when first starting breastfeeding.
Plugged milk ducts are also common in breastfeeding mothers. A plugged milk duct occurs when a milk duct does not drain properly. Because of this, pressure builds behind the plug and the surrounding tissue becomes inflamed. You may feel a tender and sore lump in the breast if your milk ducts are plugged.

CamWell Simply Baby Cream for Sensitive Skin
Of course, we can’t forget about our cute babies. But first, a brief story about the history of CamWell Simply Baby cream.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been on the receiving end of baby screams as a result of diaper rash – it’s terrible to feel so powerless to help your baby’s discomfort. CamWell Simply Baby was originally designed by a doctor who had a friend in that all-too-familiar situation. This friend’s son was suffering from severe diaper rash – and the friend had exhausted all of her options in searching for a solution.
She needed a safe, non-toxic, non steroid cream baby cream – and that’s how Simply Baby was born (no pun intended!).
CamWell Simply Baby works to soothe and protect your baby’s delicate skin without harsh chemicals. The formula utilizes a powerful combination of four antibacterial and antimicrobial herbs to provide gentle, steroid-free relief.
CamWell Simply Baby delivers multiple benefits, including:
- Itch and pain relief
- Calms inflammation
- Protects against infection
- Healing relief for baby diaper rash, baby eczema, cradle cap
We at CamWell wish all of the powerful women out there the happiest Mother’s Day from our team to yours! Be sure to continually check our site for the latest information regarding mom & baby skin care here.
