Newborn baby skin is very delicate; thus, it also needs a baby skincare routine, a bit of extra care, and products formulated especially for their age and skin. In addition, skin rashes and allergies can be very painful for babies. Thus, the baby skin care routine becomes even more important. This SuperBottoms article will help you understand some tips and tricks to keep newborn skin safe and protected. Explore on!

Skincare for Newborns

As soon as the babies are born, they can develop a variety of skin conditions such as cradle cap, diaper rash, milia, infantile acne, and others. And because the baby's skin is so delicate, you must treat it with extreme caution.

Newborn skin care is not a complex process to master. But because every child has different skin and might have allergies or skin issues that you as parents might not realise unless there is a trigger, in the initial few weeks, you need to be very vigilant and choose the products and baby skin care routine that suit their skin. So, here are some important tips and things to keep in mind while choosing your newborn baby essentials like cloth diapers, swaddles, baby blankets, and newborn skincare routines.

Baby Skin Care Basics:

1. While Bathing: Bathing is the most basic of all baby skin care that starts from the time one is born. But bathing a tiny little human for the first time, or even the first few weeks, can be scary for new parents. You might wonder - how to hold them, what products to use, the temperature of the water, etc. There might be a million questions in your mind! Check out our article How to Bathe a Newborn Baby to get all your questions answered.

2. While Diapering: The biggest skin issue that diapering brings along is diaper rash. However, you can avoid diaper rashes if you keep a few things in mind.

• Choose newborn cloth diapers over disposable diapers to avoid plastic and chemicals contacting your baby’s delicate skin and genitals, thus causing rashes.
• Change the diaper frequently.
• Give your baby diaper-free time at least once a day between diaper changes to let the skin air dry completely. You can also use Dry Feel Langot. This product has soft elastics, absorbent padding, and a waterproof layer to keep babies dry and prevent any mess when they pee.
• Follow a proper wash routine for your SuperBottoms reusable cloth diapers.

3. While Using Baby Products: It is important to moisturise a newborn baby’s skin, as it loses moisture faster and can get dry and itchy. But choosing the correct newborn baby skin care products is equally important. Keep the following in mind.

• Choose products that are free from any harsh and harmful chemicals and toxins.
• Look for brands that are certified safe by a trustworthy testing agency.
• Avoid products that have added fragrance or synthetic colours.
• Make sure you read the label and check what goes inside your baby skincare products.

Dry Skin Problems

It is very normal for young babies to develop small dry and flaky skin patches as their skin can lose moisture easily. Usually, massaging with good, season-specific massage oil can help deal with this problem, and using a thick moisturiser after the bath is also helpful.

Keep the same points mentioned above while choosing a product for your baby’s dry skin. If the skin is still patchy and flaky after a few days, this might indicate a skin allergy or a rash. Consult your paediatrician and get the product recommended by them for your baby’s skin.

Skin Allergies

It is very common for babies to have baby skin allergies and rashes till the age of one year. Unlike us grown-ups, babies cannot control the urge to scratch a rash and end up with an infection. Thus, it is vital to identify an allergy or a rash in the initial stage and get proper treatment. You can read about baby skin allergies in our article.

Skin being the largest organ in the human body and most exposed to the external environment, needs to be taken good care of.

Prevention Tips: To prevent baby skin allergies, opt for hypoallergenic and fragrance-free baby products. Conduct a patch test before using new products and avoid tight clothing made from synthetic materials.
