MooGooMooGoo Soothing MSM CreamMooGoo Soothing MSM Cream$17.954.816"I’ve been using this product for myself and I love it. I get very dry and cracked hands because I’m forever washing them with having a new baby and being winter. I put some of this Moisturiser on after every hand wash and it’s restored the moisture and they are no longer cracked. It’s a thick cream so it stays on for quite a while and even after washing hands."
BepanthenBepanthen Antiseptic CreamBepanthen Antiseptic Cream$9.954.731"This is the best nappy cream I have tried. My little one often gets very red with a little bit of a rash, as soon as I put this cream on it goes away within a day. It isn't expensive either! Rather then just being a barrier cream, if actually heals rashes to by absorbing more into the skin. Excellent product!"

I find it keeps baby nice and warm too."

GAIAGAIA Natural Baby Starter KitGAIA Natural Baby Starter Kit$22.954.719"I think these products are great! Perfect idea to put in a baby shower hamper, great for travel too. The bottles are a little annoying as you can’t really squeeze them so to get the last of the product out, I found I needed to add a little water before pouring into the bath. Very gentle one the skin and good little package for first time moms to try out."
EcostoreEcostore Baby Nappy BalmEcostore Baby Nappy Balm$9.954.713"I used Ecostore baby nappy balm on my newborn with confidence knowing it contained no nasty chemicals. It's gentle on baby's skin and an effective barrier cream to prevent nappy rash. A little goes a long way with this product and it isn't too oily on skin. One minor thing is it's packaged in a glass tub, and I much prefer tubes as they're more hygienic."

About baby skin care

It’s important to take care of your baby’s soft and delicate skin. Baby’s skin is more sensitive than adult skin because it’s a lot thinner, especially newborns and premature babies, so it’s important to be really careful about taking care of your baby’s precious skin.

So when introducing new products – even products marketed as being for babies, or for sensitive skin – it’s a good idea to do a small test patch on your baby’s skin before completely covering your baby in that product, just in case they have some kind of reaction to that product.

Baby wash and soaps

Keeping baby squeaky clean gets harder as they get older and more mobile – babies and toddlers have a knack for getting themselves extremely dirty in a very short amount of time! (Though even newborns can be difficult to keep clean between poo-splosions and constant vomiting.)

It’s a personal choice whether you want to use baby soap or if you just want to rinse your baby off with plain water. If you decide to use baby wash or baby soap, there is a huge variety to choose from.

Baby hair care

While many babies don’t really have much in the way of hair to care for, some babies have luscious little locks and may need a bit of baby shampoo to help keep their hair clean. You may not need to specifically baby shampoo, as many baby washes and soaps can also be used on baby’s hair as well, or you may just want to rinse baby’s hair off with water.

You may want to buy your baby a super soft baby brush for gently detangling their hair, as their scalp may be too fragile and sensitive for a regular adult brush.

Baby lotions, oils and moisturisers

Your baby’s skin is more prone to drying than adult skin, so they may benefit from regularly moisturising their skin. Applying baby lotion, baby oil or moisturisers to your baby’s skin can also be a soothing and comforting experience for baby and yourself. Baby massage can be great for your baby’s sleep routine, as well as their skin care routine.

Eczema and rashes

Rashes can be a sign of illness, allergies or irritation to products or substances your baby has come into contact with, so if you’re ever concerned about rashes on your baby’s skin it’s a good idea to contact a healthcare professional immediately. They may also have eczema, a skin condition that should be diagnosed and treated under the guidance of your baby’s doctor.

Most babies will get nappy rash or irritated skin from time to time, and there are some great products that can help soothe and relieve your baby’s skin. These products include moisturisers, nappy creams and other specially formulated lotions and creams.
