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.

Shop Baby Shampoo and read reviews on Baby Shampoo.

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.
