How To Choose Skincare Range For Your Newborn Baby

You are back to home now with your newborn and returning to your daily routine. Among other things like keeping your baby warm, nourished; their skin care is just as crucial.

A newborn baby's skin is very sensitive, and so is their immune system. This makes newborn skin care a delicate affair. What to do and what to use are of importance when tackling your newborn's skin. On a positive side, touch on your newborn's skin has a soothing effect and is essential for your baby's development.

What to Do in Newborn Skin Care

The thumb rule to newborn's skin care is Less is more. Following are a few tips

What to Use for Baby Skin Care

Time to assemble these newborn skincare products in your baby's nursery

  • Baby soap/shampoo Use mild washes which are safe for newborns. Better yet, try making one at hime
  • Baby lotion To moisturize your newborn's skin. Remember to use sparingly
  • Petroleum jelly To treat that occasional diaper rash
  • Baby oil Use this as a massage oil for the newborn
  • Baby laundry detergent Perfume and dry free detergent for baby's cloths and sheets
  • Baby powder If using baby powder, use one which is talc free and use away from baby's face.

 

Skin Care Products Buying Tips 

  • Read labels carefully to make sure the products you buy are free from dyes, fragrances and chemicals which can irritate baby's skin.
  • Prefer hypoallergenic products. These are less likely to cause an allergic reaction.
  • Look for phthalate and paraben free products as these can potentially harm your newborn.
  • Opt for natural organic products whenever available.

Every mum wants the best for her baby. So it’s no wonder that baby skincare products are big business. So how does mum go about choosing which brand is best for her child? Is natural & organic always best for baby, or do mums see it as a marketing ploy? Is she concerned about whether a brand is dermatologically tested or for sensitive skins? How much does price factor into her choice? To put it simply, organic cotton is cotton that is grown without the use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers that are normally used in the production of regular cotton. It is safe, non-toxic, non-allergenic, 100% plant-derived, more durable and feels much lighter on skin. At Softsensbaby. com, all their products are “Inspired by Moms, and Developed by Experts!” Yes, they have a team of awesome in-house experts working on creating 100% safe and superior products for your baby, BUT the truth is – YOU are the real experts (don’t tell them we said that). All their products are inspired by the everyday needs, habits and experiences of real Moms like you. And they’ve got to say, you’re the best collaborator we’ve ever had.
