Do's and Don’ts of Newborn Skin Care

Holding your little one for the first time is the most amazing feeling that cannot be described you can feel overwhelmed with love and affection. As you get into the routine of being a parent, keeping your baby warm and nourished is your first priority, especially since a parents bond with the baby is one of a protector and all you would want to make sure is that your baby receives all the attention it needs.

Here are a few do’s and don’ts that will help you to protect your baby.

The Do’s:


* Washing your baby’s skin correctly:

Cleanliness around newborns is necessary because their immune systems are still developing. Bathing your newborn 2-3 times per week is enough to keep their skin clean. Also, before you tend to your baby, it is always a good to wash your hands and this should be directed to your visitors as well, especially while your baby is still young.

* Moisturizing after bathing:

A newborn skin care is very important as a baby’s skin is usually dry, especially on the face when the baby is getting accustomed to the environment outside the womb. It is essential to use a mild baby soap to reduce the risk of excessive dryness and to avoid irritation to the baby's eyes. After bathing your baby, apply littloo’s baby lotion all over the baby's body to help reduce dry, flaky skin. Littloo’s Baby Daily Lotion contains natural blend of shea butter and glycerin to moisturize and protect your baby's delicate skin.

* Treating rashes with newborn skin care:

 Rashes are quite common in newborn babies, and you may notice that they fade just as quickly as they appear. However, it is necessary to keep an eye on them to see if there are any changes, such as bumpiness and redness. You many notice an acne-like rash, flea-bite-like marks, or skin peeling on your baby's skin. Keep the affected areas clean and dry, and gently pat the skin dry with a clean towel. Consult your doctor for any harsh and stubborn rashes you may notice.

* Keeping your baby hydrated:

Hydration is essential part of newborns skin care routine. Water helps regulate body temperature and fight infections. It is also essential to healthy skin because it heals and nurtures our organs. Maintaining hydration flushes out all bodily toxins, giving the baby replenished skin. Also breastfeeding or bottle feeding your baby as directed by your doctor is important for the baby to stay hydrated and nourished. Here are a few do’s and don’ts that will guide you to protect your baby.


The Don'ts

* Expose to direct sunlight:While the soft rays of the early morning sun are beneficial to your baby, it is recommended to avoid direct sunlight for the first 6 months because UV radiation damages baby’s tender skin. If you go out in the day, it is ideal to use a baby-friendly sunscreen and try to use a cover or an umbrella.


* Don’t use products constituting dyes and fragrances: There are different types of products on the market, but not all of them are safe for your newborn’s skin. Limit or avoid scented and artificially colored baby skin products, particularly during the first few months as they may cause irritation to the newborns skin and cause more rashes.


* Dress them in tight clothes: Tight clothing can irritate your baby's skin, so it's best to avoid it, especially if your baby has sensitive skin. While you may think it's a good idea to dress your babies in tight clothes to avoid exposure and wind, the tightness can easily cause a heat rash due to sweating. Clothes for the baby should be loose so that their movements are not restricted.


Your child requires the best possible care and giving him or her a gentle massage with your hands not only benefits their skin but also helps you two form a strong bond. Massage can be given with natural essence oil. Littloo’s baby massage oil is the best for newborn skin care as it has a gentle, mild and non-greasy formula. Make every effort to give the apple of your eye beautiful skin and a cheerful disposition!
