Baby skin care tips for the health of your newborn

When you first give birth, your newborn will require its own baby skin care routine, as infant skin tends to be a lot gentler and more sensitive. Chemicals, fragrances and dyes found in detergents and baby products can cause dryness, chafing and rashes on newborn skin. The first order of business in establishing a baby skin care routine is to avoid washing your baby too often, as you want to prevent too much exposure to chemicals and potential allergens, as doing so can set the stage for skin allergies later on in life. Also avoid using baby products in the first few months because the immune system is still developing.

Another baby skin care tip to follow is to always wash any article of baby clothing prior to dressing your newborn, and only use baby laundry detergents that are free of fragrance and dye. Switch to dye free diapers to help prevent future outbreaks of eczema or other rashes, and you can always consult your pediatrician about over the counter lotions or cream to treat the condition if it persists. You can also give your baby a light sponge bath every other day instead of a full on bath as part of its baby skin care routine.
