“It’s way too early for him to be talking anyhow, but I see in his eyes something, and I see in his eyes a voice, and I see in his eyes a whole new set of words.”
- Sherman Alexie
Newborn babies feel like no less than a blessing who deserves to be preserved with all the love and care. Besides the fact that they are the new lives to this world, their skin is ultra-gentle and soft, which needs to be handled carefully.
But at the same time, harsh diaper rashes, different skincare products, etc., make it difficult for the child to stay away from skin-related issues. For once, we as adults can deal with the never-ending skin problems, but when it comes to the little infants, it may turn into a messy skin infection or disease, creating a fuss for the little lives.
So, what should be the next big move of every new parent?
The only solution is to preserve the skin and keep it away from every possible factor that can turn into a skin-related issue for the baby. It’s significant for a new parent to be familiar with the infant’s range of skincare products and hacks. So, let’s surf through the different ways to take care of babies.
#1 – Remember! Babies are prone to rashes.
The skin of babies is ultra-sensitive, therefore handle it with care. Moreover, avoid using multiple products simultaneously as this may lead to a chemical imbalance resulting in any skin-related problem for the baby. Pick products that are made with organic ingredients. From clothes to diapers, sanitize everything before putting on the baby.
#2 – Dry skin
It’s common for babies to be born with dry skin but relax; you can heal it easily. You may see dry and dull skin on the top, but there is an underlying soft and gentle skin. All you need is to wait for that skin to overcome the dry one. For this, you can massage the little life with a quality baby balm, lotion, or cream. This will moisten the skin. But you cannot see positive results even after a few weeks; consult a pediatrician immediately.
#3 – No more excess oil
Many parents apply excessive oil on their baby’s head with the thought of fastening hair growth in babies. However, the intent is positive, but the results may not. Excessive oil on the baby’s scalp can result in red rashes or a waxy layer on the top. This starts to appear in the first or second month of the baby. Although it clears within the first year, make sure not to apply excessive amounts of oil. And if you have been doing it already, then consult a practitioner who may recommend a particular shampoo or lotion for the same.
The bottom line is that,
Babies deserve the best care and handling because minor negligence can result in a severe and lifelong health issue. As a result, there is a different line of grooming products available for babies specifically. Make use of such products and keep your baby in a safe place.
