Baby’s Skin Needs Special Care

Many mums are concerned about the food they put into their baby’s mouth but it is also important to consider what goes onto their baby’s skin.

Many mums are concerned about the food they put into their baby’s mouth but it is also important to consider what goes onto their baby’s skin. Remember these points when using lotions and products on your baby’s body:

  • A baby’s skin can be five times thinner than an adult’s.
  • Babies are sensitive to artificial chemicals and fragrances often used in toiletries. These can lead to headaches, eczema and skin sensitivity.
  • Always try to limit your use of these products for the sake of your baby and the environment.
  • Instead of using baby wipes, use a flannel with water to avoid unnecessary chemicals and packaging.
  • To help avoid nappy rash, let baby have as much “nappy off” time as you can.
