What Baby Skin Care Products Does Your Newborn Need?

Newborn baby skin care is a delicate matter. In the early months, as your baby’s immune system develops, you’d want to use the mildest cleansers and a small dosage of lotion. But when dry skin, eczema, and diaper rash appear, it’s time to treat those problems. Do talk to your pediatrician to find out when your baby can start using medical treatment.

Your newborn needs dye-free, and fragrance-free baby skin care products. If there’s a newborn in your family, here are a few tips before you start shopping:

Baby shampoo

“Read labels carefully. Baby skin care products may contain dyes, fragrances, and chemicals which can irritate a baby’s skin and breathing.”

Natural baby skin care products are safe for most infants. But if there are allergies or asthma historical in the family, the newborn may also be sensitive to botanicals and herbs in some products.

The label “hypoallergenic” can be misleading. The term means that the product is less likely to cause an allergic reaction, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the product is gentler on the skin than other products.

Look for products that are free from phthalate and paraben. Those chemicals are potentially harmful to babies.

Baby Skin Care Products

As you set up the baby’s nursery — or the corner bedroom in the grandparents’ house — assemble these newborn skin care products:

  • Baby soaps, washers/cleansers, and shampoos: Cleansers and washers are mild and safe for newborns. But use baby soaps sparingly, as they can dry newborn skin.
  • Baby lotion: Helps moisturize newborn skin. Use sparingly on tiny newborns.
  • Petroleum jelly: Can be used to treat diaper rash. It provides baby’s skin with a protective barrier against moist diapers. You may be asked to apply it on the healing circumcision site.
  • Diaper rash ointment: Waterproofing the baby’s skin — protecting newborn skin so wet diapers don’t irritate.
  • Baby oil: This classic is best used as massage oil for newborn skin, not as a moisturizer. Newborn skin does not absorb it well.
  • Baby laundry detergent: Look for baby detergents that are free of perfumes and dye. Regular detergents are too harsh for newborn skin. The same applies when choosing dryer sheets.
  • Baby powder: If using baby powder, try to find powders that are talc free and take care to keep it away from baby’s face and genitalia. The talc or cornstarch in the powder can cause breathing problems. Use sparingly.
