If you can’t tell your baby’s skin from a rubber ducky’s, it’s time to take a closer look at baby skin-care treatments. All babies have sensitive skin that is prone to dryness and irritation.
Fascinating Fact: The medical term for dry skin is xerosis, more commonly known as winter itch, and young children are at greatest risk.
Check that baby bottle! Whether you’re buying off the shelf, on the Internet, or over the phone, make sure you’re educated about what’s going onto and into your baby. Read the label. Know the company. Be selective. Before you head to the checkout, review these guidelines and make sure the products are:
Free of dyes, chemical fragrances, mineral oil (baby oil is simply mineral oil with a fragrance), and animal products/byproducts.
Plus, pediatrician-tested, hypoallergenic, pH correct, and nonsensitizing/nonirritating.
