Choosing baby moisturisers
Creams and moisturisers
There are many creams and moisturisers available for babies that meet a range of their skin care needs. Some creams are specially formulated for your baby’s delicate skin, whereas others are designed to be used by the whole family.
Even if the cream is for babies, or it’s marketed as “gentle” or “sensitive”, it’s a good idea when you start using a new skin product on your baby to do a small test patch first before applying to their whole body – just to be sure that your baby’s skin isn’t irritated by the new cream or moisturiser.
Nappy rash creams and barrier creams
There are lots of different nappy creams, lotions and powders available to help treat and prevent nappy rash. Some are barrier creams designed to protect your baby’s delicate skin from moisture and their soiled nappies. Other creams are medicated to treat severe nappy rashes. You should talk to your baby’s doctor or a pharmacist for advice for treating severe or persistent nappy rash.
You can also use baby powder, which can help keep baby’s skin dry and prevent chafing – just be careful that it doesn’t puff into the air for baby to inhale.
Baby lotion and baby moisturiser
Using an all over baby lotion or baby moisturiser doesn’t just help protect baby’s skin from getting too dry, it can also a beautiful way to bond and connect with your baby. Some baby lotions and moisturisers are specially designed for baby massage, but any baby moisturiser or baby lotion will work. For some babies incorporating a massage into their bedtime routine can help them relax and signal that it’s night time and time to sleep.
Eczema and rash cream
If your baby has eczema, or any concerning rashes, it’s best to talk to a healthcare professional – talk to their doctor, child health nurse, or a pharmacist. There are some great moisturisers and creams that are specifically designed to be gentle and soothing for babies who have irritated skin.
Another very important cream for protecting your baby’s delicate skin is baby sunscreen. Be aware that most sunscreens aren’t recommended for use on babies under 6 months, and that it’s best to avoid having your baby in direct sunlight, especially during the warmest part of the day.
