Soft Skin!

All babies are born with a need to be loved. This mantra also applies with his skin also.  Child’s skin is immature, delicate and soft till age three. It has few defenses against cold, wind, sun, dry air etc. It sometimes prone to red patches and is very easily irritated. Unique and valuable cell potential of baby’s skin is vital to protect. So we need to give it a very special care and use appropriate products.  Here is my tips to ensure baby’s skin soft, smooth, comfortable and flexible day by day.

1.   Massage  -  First of all we should massage his body with baby oil twice or thrice a day. Firstly when he wakes up, secondly in the evening and lastly at sleeping time. Choose the oil which is full of nutrients and nourishes the skin.
2.   Cleaning -  We should clean his body with a bath gel which is specially formulated for baby skin only. We should use baby shampoo for his hair. Showering too much will cause irritation especially if he has sensitive skin. We should apply baby skin lotion twice ( day and night ) which moisturises his skin to some extent.
3.   Block the sun – we should keep our baby out of the sun as much as possible. We should use these items to cover and protect the tender skin of the baby.
Hat, cloth with long sleeves and pants, sunscreen that blocks both ultra violet rays and UVB rays with a sun protection factor of at least 15. Apply sun screen to face and hands only for babies under 6 months. Sunscreen blocks with titanium oxide or zinc oxide might be gentler on skin. Reapply it every 2 hours or after your baby sweats.
4.   Bed – We should use soft bedding with soft cotton bed covers. Blankets and dohars should also be very very soft as per baby skin. If proper soft bed is not given to baby then red rashes can be seen on his body.
5.   Diaper rash – Every baby is going to battle diaper rash at some point. Unrefined coconut oil is a super easy diaper rash cream because it has natural anti-fungal properties to fight with rashes. Also the anti-bacterial qualities of diluted Apple cider Vinegar can be used to heal diaper rash. Diaper rash thrives in dark and moist areas so if we increase air circulation and expose the area it will heal the skin more quickly. Moreover We should use the most soft suitable and smoothest lovable diapers, “Soft Pampers Premium care pants”.
 “Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy. ”

Mom's love like skin!

         Mom's love like skin

Skin care must be good enough as diet of the baby. Nothing in the world is so soft and delicate like baby’s skin. So we should be very careful and tactful handling baby skin. An infant is most irritated by diaper rash or a cradle cap. Mostly babies are prone to skin irritation in their first few months. The basic rule is to do nothing to aggravate baby skin. We all know that a baby skin needs extra special care and protection than a kid and an adult.

!.  We should choose skin care products that should be hypoallergenic. Daily care products like soap, shampoo, cream, body lotion, body oil, talcum powder should be tested under the supervision of dermatologists and pediatricians. These products should be specially formulated for a baby’s skin.

2.  Babies have extra sensitive skin, so we should avoid brand new clothes and towels, in spite we should wash them before use. We should use baby laundry detergent instead of regular detergents to wash their clothes. Detergents should be free and clear of allergens, dyes and fragrances. Dresses should be made of soft and anti-allergic fabric. Also mattress, blanket, bedsheet and toys should be specially designed for babies only.

3 We should keep baby in shade and pick a sunscreen with highest sun protection factor available. Choose the sun-screen which blocks both UVA and UVB rays. Apply sunblock with Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. It offers the best protection and keeps their skin softest possible.

4. Diaper rash is the most irritating and itching factor for a baby. Diaper rash is the common problem handled by each and every mother. The materials that keep diapers leaking and and also prevent air from circulating.
Baby’s bottom should be kept clean and dry. The more it is dry, the less his skin will irritate. We should clean baby with a baby wipe after every diaper change and apply a diaper cream. Also, we should give our baby a few minutes diaper free. “Pampers brings you the softest ever Pampers Premium Care Pants. Its cotton-like softness is #SoftestForBabySkin and allows it to breathe, thus keeping baby’s skin soft and healthy, and your baby happy. ”   So it is ideal to use Pampers diapers for fully protection of baby skin.

5. Lastly we should massage baby with proper moisturizer or baby oil .It nourishes the skin and keep it soft and smooth. It penetrates in the skin relaxes baby and prepares the baby for sleep. It also creates a magical bond with our baby.  
Finally I would like to say that we should protect our baby skin with miracle like super softness. Pampers are the only diapers that a mother can use with her eyes closed. It will never harm her baby anyways.
