Motherhood is a dream for every woman. I am very thankful to god that he gave us the gift of motherhood and gift to bring new life to the world. Once you enter in the role of mother, you enter the new phase of life.
That’s why; it’s the responsibility of the mother to cater the needs of the Cutie Pie. If it’s about baby’s skin, then the responsibility doubles up as baby’s skin is ultra sensitive. Here I am sharing 5 things that must be closely monitored to keep baby’s skin soft and safe.
Tender the skin – Baby’s skin tends to mature and fall off quickly, so bathing the baby twice a week is enough till the baby starts rolling on its own or eats semi solid foods.
2. Spot on the moon: Baby face is like moon and any acne or rash could look like a spot on it. Baby’s skin is very susceptible to infections and other environmental factors. Unlike adult acne, baby’s acne shouldn’t be treated with chemicals or medications until a medical advice. Other conditions which effect baby’s skin are rashes and eczema which can be treated symptomatically.
3. Old is gold: As the saying goes, the old is always precious. The saying fits perfectly for neonates clothing, the older the cloth the better it is. The ideal clothing for a baby is old, loose and airy clothes.
Natural is better: Try to avoid scented products as much as possible. The natural smell of baby’s skin is best.
Baby that skin: The cleaner and drier baby’s bottom, the less likely his skin will become irritated. Clean baby with water and a washcloth or baby wipe during every diaper change, then allow his skin to dry completely before applying a diaper.
