Carter14Getting ready to welcome a baby into your home may require a lot of planning and possible changes in daily routines. All this planning may consist of choosing the perfect color for your baby’s room and finding the perfect furniture to match your baby’s needs. At the top of the list of course is taking measures for keeping the baby warm and nourished. Your baby’s skin care is just as important. Baby skin is delicate and may be prone to rashes, dryness, and skin irritation. Keep these tips in mind when providing care for your baby’s skin.

Try not to give too many baths!

There really is no need to wash your baby every day. In fact, giving them a bath everyday may cause your baby’s already susceptible skin to be more prone to rashes and dryness. To avoid giving your baby too many baths, usually a quick wipe with a damp cloth does the job… at least until they decide to rub spaghetti sauce on their cheeks.

When it is time to give them a bath, opt for two to three baths a week in warm water. This can help prevent rashes and dryness that may occur with baths.

Use Chemical Free Products

Since it is still developing, your baby’s skin is still very vulnerable so it is very important to use chemical-free products. When giving a baby a bath, use soaps or shampoos that contain natural ingredients such as vitamin E, vitamin A, Aloe Vera, and the like.

This can also apply to your baby’s clothing detergent. Use only baby laundry detergents that are both fragrance and dye free to prevent any skin reactions that may hurt your baby.

Be Mindful of the Weather

            Your baby may be taken out to enjoy the warmth of the sun once they are about 6 months old, but it is important you apply sunscreen with at least an SPF 30. This is because babies in general have underdeveloped sweat glands, making them very vulnerable to heat rashes.

Following these three simple tips can make a big difference on your baby’s skin, at least enough to make it irresistible for some cuddling.

Ways to Soothe a Fussy Baby

  1. Many babies respond positively to motion. Try rocking, walking or slow dancing with baby or vibrating the baby with rockers and carriers.
  2. Place baby in a wearable sling or carrier, and go about your business. Baby may find your proximity calming.
  3. Play soft, calming music. Dim the lights, lower your voice, and put on a collection of lullabies or classical music. Nature sounds work well, too.
  4. Change baby’s position. Some parents suggest lying baby face down across your lap, with a warm towel placed underneath.
  5. Give baby a gentle massage. Babies crave human touch; some find massages truly relaxing.
  6. Try distracting your infant with a mirror or a drawing of a human face.
  7. Lie your infant down under a slowly circulating ceiling fan. The combined motion and sound may calm her.
