Being a new parent comes with a lot of responsibility. There’s lots of stress involved with caring for a tiny human being who’s reliant on you for everything. There’s great deal that you have to take on now that you may end up neglecting some important things. Your baby’s skin needs just as much attention as everyone else's skin.
We understand that it can definitely be overwhelming at times. Don’t worry though, this blog has you covered!
Here's a complete guide to take care of your baby’s skin.
Treat Rashes and Irritated Skin
When it comes to baby skin issues, rashes and especially diaper rashes top the list. A baby’s skin is sensitive and vulnerable to irritation, dryness, and rashes. It’s important to keep the baby dry and clean, give them regular and gentle baths, and change diapers when they are wet or soiled.
Ointments with Calendula Extract are great to soothe the irritated skin. It’s anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory. It’s also helpful in treating diaper rash. Chamomile Oil is great for eliminating skin irritation and treating problems like eczema, rashes, and acne.
Use products that are manufactured specially for sensitive skin that are prone to rashes. The Nature’s Baby Diaper Ointment is made for sensitive and rash-prone skin. It prevents any diaper rash. It has USDA Certified Calendula, Tamanu Oil, and Chickweed Extract.
Avoid the Sun
It’s important that your baby avoids the sun as much as possible regardless of the weather or season.
However, it's important to note that the FDA and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that you shouldn’t apply sunscreen on babies who are under six months old.
What you can do, as the FDA suggests, is to keep your baby in the shade as much as possible. If you have to take them out in the sun, cover their neck and ears. It’s important that you don’t take them out in the sun between 10:00 am to 4:00 pm because that’s when the ultraviolet rays are at their strongest.
Be Mindful of Dry Skin
If your baby has very dry or cracking skin, it’s important that you moisturize it with products formulated specifically for a baby’s sensitive skin. Products with Tamanu Oil are moisturizing for the baby’s skin and promote cell proliferation because they are rich in fatty acids like alpha-linoleic and oleic acids.
Shea Butter is also packed with fatty acids and helps moisturize the baby’s skin. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant.
Another moisturizing ingredient is Aloe Vera juice that boasts of healing properties.
Avoid Contact Dermatitis
This is an allergic reaction on the baby’s skin that is caused by different irritants. It shows as red and swollen or cracked and peeling skin. The most common allergens or irritants are soaps, detergents, urine, saliva, dyes, fragrances, cosmetics, latex, and lotions that are not made for babies’ sensitive skin.
