What if my baby has sensitive skin or eczema?

In order to keep your baby’s skin healthy, especially if it is very sensitive skin or prone to rosacea or eczema, you need to take special care.

When it comes to baby’s skin care, keep things simple. Use natural products with as few ingredients as possible, or just wash with plain water. Your baby’s skin is delicate, and multiple ingredients or harsh chemicals can cause reactions. Products used for diapering and moisturizing should also be limited to keep your baby’s skin healthy.

During the winter months, protect your baby’s skin by changing out of wet clothes and socks as soon as you can. Keeping wet cloth, especially wet wool, against their skin can lead to itching, dry skin, and even sores.

If your baby is prone to eczema on their arms, legs, or torso, watch the kinds of fabrics you buy for them to wear. Wool or spandex can cling or irritate the skin causing a flare-up. Light organic cotton will help keep their skin dry and cool and are best especially if they’ll be active. See baby apparel by clicking here.
