There are a lot of parents in the cold parts of North America (like me) that are wondering what to do to Keep Baby’s Skin Soft And Safe this winter.
For some reason, when cold weather hits, it can be a nightmare for a baby, toddler, or a kid’s skin.
Luckily, we live in a time and age where we can do something about it.
How to Keep Baby’s Skin Safe During the Winter
Bath your baby less
As a mom of a child who deals with super itchy and patchy skin during the winter months, bathing less does help.
Water can dry out the skin of your baby, which is why bathing less helps.
Use products that are hyper allergenic, so you know there are no harsh chemicals in it. I use it with my 5 year old.
She hates getting anything in her eyes.
I make sure I use super gentle shampoo just in case. Keep Baby’s Skin Soft And Safe.
Moisturizing is super important
I can’t stress enough how important it is to moisturize your child’s or baby’s skin.
Baby’s and specially Newborns are prone to rashes.
Moisturizing will help keep your baby or child’s skin from getting rough and tough.
Pay attention to what moisturizer you are using in case a reaction to a particular skin moisturizer product occurs (stop using it).
Rashes can occur if wet diapers are not changed quickly or if diapers are too tight.
To avoid rashes make sure the wet area has thoroughly dried (leave the area open to the air as long as practical).
Use a soothing balm at night
If you have a baby with eczema or dry skin, it can be hard to put lotion on them during the day.
It’s best to consult a pediatrician to ensure you use the correct medicine (over the counter or prescription) to treat Eczema.
The right medicine helps to moisturize your child’s skin as they sleep.
Dry and itchy skin is never fun.
It’s refreshing to know that there is a great selection of products out there to help our children’s skin.
It hurts to see your child in pain or uncomfortable.
I’d love to hear how it has helped during the winter months.
