We often hear the statement “as soft as a baby’s skin” , yes ! baby’s skin is very sensitive , soft and to be handled with care. There can be n number of tips and products to keep your baby’s skin soft.
Wait ! Why to make the skin which is already soft, softer ? So, all we have to do is protect the skin with lots of care. Being a mom of 2 kids, let me share simple 5 tips from my end to keep your baby’s skin soft
Magic is water : Baby’s do not go out in pollution, they dont play in sand so early or get their skin dirty the hard way. But, do not forget the fact that, babies spill milk , saliva which spreads over the face, runs to the ears if they are lying down. We generally wipe with a soft towel, which clears it but leaves the skin sticky. This is the same state with cloth nappies also. So, wash the area with water atleast thrice or more, incase it is a cold weather, make it atleast twice to clean the sticky parts.
Wonderful invention : The best product made to give freedom to a baby’s wet nappy is “diaper”. Diaper keeps the skin dry. Babies get the peaceful deep sleep because of diapers, however diaper care is very important, else this might cause infection for the baby. Maximum time to keep the diaper on is 2 to 3 hours. If the diaper is soiled, then it is highly recommended to change diaper immediately. Always use the best and branded product like pampers for your baby’s soft skin. “Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy. ”
Fabric Etiquettes : Any parent will be all excited to wear many new dresses for their little one, however it is always better to wash the new dress once with plain water before use so that the chemical coating if any or any dirt
Know the balance : Babies getting redness or rashes is quite normal and reason cannot be easily spotted. Applying small amount of lotions or creams helps to keep the baby relaxed. However, overdoing the creams and lotions are also not advisable. As all paediatricians say, best thing that we can do to a baby’s skin is not troubling it with too many products.
Cleanliness : Adding to the above skin care, it is always best if we , adults (who play, lift, cuddle the baby ) are also keeping our hands and skin neat, using sanitiser or washing hands before playing with baby is a hygienic habit.
So, there is no special struggle to make the baby’s skin softer as it is the softest on Earth. All we have to do is be more gentle with lots of love and care. Happy Parenting ! 🙂
