Looking For Baby Skincare Products?
Choosing the right baby skincare products for your precious baby is important in keeping your baby healthy and happy. With the
many different kinds of baby skincare products available on the market today, plus the vast amount of advertisements for baby
skincare products you are bombarded with from television, newsprint and magazine ads choosing the right product can be
somewhat overwhelming not to mention confusing.
If they’re all the best one, which do you choose?
Well you may have to go through a few of them before you find the right one. Because your baby’s skin is very soft and
delicate you should use baby skincare products sparingly at least for the first few weeks, and monitor your baby’s skin
closely to see if any rashes or red spots develop. If you notice any type of changes in your baby’s skin after applying the
baby skincare product you should discontinue its use immediately.
The one major baby skincare problem that every parent faces at one time or another in the first years of their baby’s life is
diaper rashes, which is usually caused by wet diapers or cloth diapers being left on too long. Parents should regularly check
to see whether their baby’s diaper needs changing at least every hour or so.
Also parents should pay particular attention to
the type of detergent that they use to wash their baby’s clothes and cloth diapers with, as some detergents may contain
chemicals that might irritate your baby’s skin and cause him/her to develop skin rash. Should your baby develop a rash and
you suspect that the detergent you are using to be the cause discontinue its use immediately and try a different product.
Baby Moisturizers, Lotions, & Oils:
Most parents believe that it is necessary to smother their baby’s skin with some sort of moisturizer or other product in
order to keep their baby’s skin soft and smooth. Believe it or not this can do more harm than good to your baby’s skin,
especially newborn babies.
Your babies skin needs a chance to build up its immune system on its own and many of these
lotions, powders etc, might contain chemicals that can be harmful to your baby’s skin, so for the first few weeks of your
baby’s life you should practice good baby skincare and simply bathe your baby with warm water and if some type of soap is
necessary you should use a mild, non scented colorless soap.
Baby Talc/Powder: Nearly every parent uses baby talc/powder in their daily baby skincare routine as they all want their
babies to smell and look beautiful.
This is fine as long as you don’t over do it, especially in the diaper area. You should
use it sparingly just as you would with moisturizers or lotions, because powder tends to cache up when it gets wet and this
can cause your baby to develop diaper rash.
Good baby skincare practices are important in order to keep your baby’s skin baby smooth, but the other and probably most
important ingredient to a happy, healthy, beautiful baby is love, shower your baby with love and he or she will grow into a
very happy, healthy, beautiful child.
