Want to raise a happy & healthy Baby?
Updated on 3 November 2023
Dry skin can be uncomfortable for your baby and can become fussier. A baby’s skin is thinner and more sensitive than yours and produces fewer natural oils. So, it is natural that the skin can get dry easily.
The symptoms of dry skin include the following:
Flaky and rough patches on skin
Red and Itchy areas
Presence of dry cracks
Frequent bleeding & infection
As bath time can appear fun, try to keep it short as longer duration can lead to dry skin. You can also limit the frequency of bath unless your baby needs a little extra scrub. Use lukewarm water while bathing as it is less drying and cannot burn your baby.
While choosing a cleansing product, you can choose a gentle and fragrance-free product instead of a regular soap. An organic body wash with Aloe Vera extracts is always helpful.
After the bath, just pat dry the baby’s skin instead of rubbing the delicate skin with the towel.
Apply a layer of cream or petroleum jelly on your child’s skin during the chilly weather to prevent any dryness. Use of either a baby face cream or body lotion for babies after every bath is advisable to maintain the moisture levels of baby's skin.
Use a gentle detergent for the baby’s laundry. Follow these tips to prevent your baby’s skin from getting dry and irritated.
Ensure proper moisturization after every bath to prevent dryness and keep your baby’s skin damp.
Add a humidifier in the background to prevent any dryness which can affect your child’s skin.
Keep them hydrated by ensuring timely feeds.
It is important to ascertain if your baby is suffering from any form of allergy such as dust or pollen which is affecting the skin. Talk to your doctor if you witness your child experiencing any form of allergies.
