Newborn baby skin care is a delicate matter. As your baby’s immune system develops, you’ll want to use the mildest cleansers and lotions. But when dry skin, eczema, and diaper rash appear, it’s time to treat those problems.
Your newborn needs chemical-free skin care products which means you must read labels carefully. Products that contain dyes, fragrances, phthalates and parabens can irritate a baby’s skin and can cause problems breathing.
Natural baby skin care products are safe for most infants. But if you have allergies or asthma in your family, your newborn may also be sensitive to essential oils, botanicals and herbs in some products.
The label “hypoallergenic” can be misleading. The term means that the product is less likely to cause an allergic reaction, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the product is gentler on the skin than other products.
Now, let’s talk bathing! How often should you bathe your baby? You will find conflicting information on this topic; however, a good rule of thumb is no more than 3 times per week. You can use the same gentle baby wash or cleansing bar from head to toe!
