Treating a baby’s dry skin
Today’s post is about recommended face creams for your little one’s dry skin. Babies are scary creatures. Although it is exciting and an amazing adventure to bring them home they also bring unexpected situations and things you have never dealt with before. Many mothers have asked me about how to deal with their baby’s dry skin and eczema. Newborns come to the world with different fluids: one of these fluids protects their skin from the amniotic fluid and it is called vernix. If your baby is born with more vernix, the less he/she might peel or suffer from dry skin.
But peeling is always normal in the following weeks after birth. Other skin conditions like eczema causes red patches on your baby’s face and body so keeping your baby moisturized is very important to treat this condition. I asked my doctor and a few mothers about the most effective lotions and face creams to treat it and they have given me these following names. I hope this helps you (and try not to freak out!) Your baby’s dry skin is normal and will go away eventually if you treat it with patience.
Breastmilk: Okay so some mothers have told me that if you apply breastmilk to your baby’s face it clears it right up!
Keep your little one hydrated
Limit bath time and apply lotion right after bath.
Use natural soap with no fragrance as they can irritate the skin more.
Protect your little one’s skin from cold/hot conditions.
I hope this helps you!
