Tips on taking care of your newborn’s skin

A newborn’s skin is delicate and can be prone to rashes and dryness. That’s why choosing bath and skincare products that are free of fragrances and chemicals can help nurture and nourish your little one’s delicate skin. There are ways to protect your little one against common newborn skin problems, which includes:

  • You don’t need to bath your newborn every day. On in-between days, use a wash cloth with warm water to gently wipe over face, hands and nappy area.
  • Always pat your baby completely dry after bathing before putting on a nappy.
  • Always use baby care products that are specifically formulated for babies from trusted brands.
  • If your baby has very dry skin, use a baby moisturiser formulated for bub’s delicate skin that’s free of perfumes and dyes.
  • Some irritants and allergens may cause contact dermatitis. These includes dyes, perfumes and cosmetics. If you’re unsure of the cause, speak to your doctor.
  • Cradle cap is common and doesn’t usually require medical attention as it goes away naturally. It may also help to wash bub’s hair with a mild baby shampoo For any concerns, speak to your doctor for advice.
  • Keep bub’s nails short to avoid sharp bits scratching delicate skin. Popular baby care products designed for tiny nails include nail trimming pads and rounded scissors, ideal for newborns and wriggly babies.
  • Avoid sun exposure but if not possible use clothing, hat, and a trusted sunscreen formulated for babies to protect bub. Choose fragrance-free, hypo-allergenic, non-chemical sunscreens with zinc oxide and/or titanium dioxide as active ingredients.

Add baby oil at bathtime to you or your baby’s skin to prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations

Baby oil is a versatile baby care product and a must-have for parents of new babies. Baby oil can be used in a bath, as a massage oil for baby massage and to also help treat eczema and nappy rash. And baby oil has no age limit thanks to its softening benefits. Even though baby oil is an easy way to soften bub’s skin, always check for ingredients to avoid irritating bub’s skin. Many parents choose unscented and organic products especially if bub has a sensitive skin. A few drops of baby oil in a bath works beautifully to nourish and soothe bub’s skin (and mum’s skin!). You can also apply a baby-safe baby oil directly to bub’s skin if using as a massage oil for baby massage.

 

Learn how to take care of your baby’s sensitive skin

To take care of bub’s sensitive skin, choose baby skincare products especially formulated for a baby’s sensitive skin. This may include bath oil, baby moisturiser and nappy creams specifically formulated to be free of synthetic fragrance, propylene glycol, sulphates, parabens, mineral oil, artificial colours, phthalates and EDTA. Even if bub has some dry patches as a newborn, these often clear after a few weeks on their own. Each parent works out best what their bub needs, and sometimes it’s just a bit more moisture in the form of bath oil and baby moisturiser. Nappy cream and baby wipes are also usually everyday staples for parents of newborns and babies. To prevent nappy rash as well as help ease any discomfort if there is nappy rash, nappy cream acts as a barrier cream. For all baby products, always read the packaging to be sure of ingredients and suitability for your bub. And if any skin conditions persist or cause your little one discomfort or you concern, it’s best to speak to your doctor.
