Baby’s soft skin is very delicate compared to that of adults and needs utmost care. They are more prone to allergies, infections, rashes and irritants. Keeping the skin healthy is also one of the most important aspect to be considered. Taking care of baby’s skin might not sound complicated but keeping it moisturized and hydrated is very necessary. But an overuse of products or longer bath times and even detergents can irritate their delicate skin. So how do we take care of a baby’s skin? Let’s find out.
Here are some tips to care for baby’s delicate skin.
A clean sponge bath for newborns and a gentle bath soap for babies and toddlers is more than enough for cleaning. Too hot water or too much soap and even the wrong kind of soap that doesn’t suit them might irritate their skin taking away the natural oils causing dryness and flaking. The natural baby care products are always the safest choice for babies.
Moisturizing after bath is very vital. The pores of the skin are open after a warm bath and it’s the best time to massage in some baby lotion or baby butter to make sure baby’s skin absorbs it well and stays hydrated for long. Moisturized, nourished and hydrated skin is very important for babies.
Massages are a great way not only to keep the skin supple and healthy but a great way to bond with your baby. Coconut oil, olive oil and some other natural oils are mostly preferred. There are many other options available in the market but choosing the organic and natural ones is better. The handmade baby care products ensures baby remains healthy both inside and out.
There is nothing nastier than a diaper rash over a baby. Reasons like soiled diaper on the body for long, diapers that do not suit a baby are common reasons to get rashes. Make sure to change baby’s diaper as soon as it is soiled and apply coconut oil or diaper rash creams before putting on a fresh diaper. Some babies also get frequent diaper rashes during teething phases. If the rashes persist for long, it’s best to consult a pediatrician.
While powdering a baby is not essential, you can still choose to do to make sure they do not sweat and get rashes due to the heat. Especially in their skin folds near the elbows, knees, thighs, etc sweating might cause rashes and cuts which definitely can be tackled by powdering them with suitable baby talc from time to time.
In addition to these, using mostly cotton clothes for the baby and using mild baby clothes detergent is also important so that the baby’s skin is not irritated.
When my son was born, I bought the best of baby care products for him. The brands that I knew have never failed any test from a mother. It was only with time, that I came to know that not every brand suits every child. Even the best of brands might not suit a particular child and my son was one of them. I had to take utmost care when choosing products for him. A patch test should be done even when it comes to babies. I was looking for baby skin care kit that will not only suit him but also nourish it.
When I came across the brand Deyga, their organic range attracted me. The baby care range is handmade, completely natural and without any chemicals. I definitely wanted to try it for my son who has one of the most sensitive skin as per pediatricians and dermatologists.
I got Deyga Baby care combo which includes Baby bath bar and Baby butter. The baby skin care range is totally a worthy choice.
Price: Baby care combo costs Rs. 899/-
I loved the baby care range from Deyga especially because they have such amazing natural ingredients. They are truly handcrafted with love keeping it vegan, cruelty free, paraben free and no harmful chemicals. The best part is that these products can be used for the most sensitive baby’s skin as well. The prices are a bit on the higher side but since they are handcrafted and organic, they are totally worth it.
