Babies are the most wonderful creatures of the world. And to have one is definitely the best kind of joy one will ever have to experience in his or her whole life. Of course, one will have to employ all means and methods in keeping the baby healthy and safe from all things that could possibly harm him or her in any way.
There's nothing quite like the soft, delicate skin of a baby as it is as delicate as the baby itself. And caring for the baby’s skin should be as important as keeping the baby well-nourished. For starters, here are some basic and important ways to taking good care of your baby’s skin:
Avoiding diaper rash
If baby has red skin around the diaper area, you're dealing with diaper rash. Most diaper rashes are skin irritations brought about by diapers that are too tight, wet diapers left on for too long, or a particular brand of detergent, diapers, or baby wipes. Avoid it by keeping the diaper area open to the air as long as possible, changing your baby's diaper as soon as it's wet, and washing the diaper area with a warm cloth.
Watch out for the weather
Babies can be exposed to sunlight once they are 6 months old, but make sure to apply sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 all over exposed skin. With underdeveloped sweat glands, babies are very susceptible to heat rash. To prevent this, dress them in loose clothing and a hat to shield from the sun.
Resist the urge to bath your baby frequently.
Ours is a culture obsessed with cleanliness, which means that parents tend to overdo it when it comes to bathing their beauties. But too much bathing removes the natural oils that protect baby's skin. That leaves baby's skin vulnerable, so it reacts to any potential allergen, triggering a reaction like eczema. Until then, a gentle sponge bath of the bottom and genitals is plenty.
Good laundry for baby skin care
Avoiding skin rashes will keep your baby smiling and happy: Use a gentle detergent to wash everything that touches your infant's skin, from bedding and blankets, to towels and even your own clothes. You'll cut down on the likelihood of baby developing irritated or itchy skin.
Above all, use safe and gentle baby skincare products
Parents and guardians of babies should be very particular and picky when It comes to choosing skincare products for their infants, as their skin is more susceptible to skin damage. For preventing aggravation of very dry skin from birth, use Bioderma Atoderm Preventive Nourishing Cream, a delicate formula created especially for infants and children.
