Baby

A baby’s delicate skin requires special care. As its protective barrier is developing and adapting to a new environment, infant skin is sensitive and especially vulnerable to dryness, chapping, chafing and rashes. 

CARE & TREATMENT

A baby’s skin can easily be irritated by soap and harsh laundry detergents, so use products that are free of fragrances and dyes. Check the labels to ensure that the detergent you choose is safe for sensitive skin.

Frequent bathing can dry out baby's delicate skin.. Avoid long baths and hot water, since both can cause dry baby skin. Gently cleanse your baby, paying special attention to skin folds and the diaper area. Soaps can be drying and fragrances may irritate, so look for a soap-free, fragrance-free cleanser. After bathing, gently pat away excess water with a soft, absorbent towel.

No one can resist a baby's soft, tender skin. To keep it that way, smooth on a moisturizer after bathing while skin is still damp to seal in the moisture. To avoid dry baby skin and potential irritation, use moisturizers without fragrances.

To prevent and relieve diaper rash, change diapers frequently to avoid prolonged contact with irritating wetness, and wash the diaper area with each diaper change. Always wipe a baby's bottom from front to back, and allow skin to air dry, or use a soft cloth. Then apply a thin layer of diaper rash ointment or cream to create a barrier between skin and wetness.

Good, daily skin care practices help keep skin soft, smooth and healthy-looking. Consult your pediatrician or dermatologist for guidance on any specific skincare concerns you may have.
