Family Matters: Keep Your Baby Moisturized


FamilyMatters_Baby7-12Months_228x173With the cold weather here, it’s easy for baby’s skin to get dried out.

From about six months on, it’s generally safe to use most moisturizing products on baby’s skin (stick to lotions specifically made for babies, though).

To keep his skin baby soft, remember to keep him hydrated. After six or seven months, it’s safe to introduce small amounts of water into his diet. Make sure he drinks up.

Use sunscreen developed for babies if you’re spending a lot of time out in harsh light.

Don’t overdo baths in the winter months as warm water and soap dry out a baby’s skin. Don’t let him soak too long in the tub. Pat, don’t rub him dry, when you take him out of the bath and use a mild baby lotion after bath to help seal in moisture.

Tip 7-13 months: If baby’s skin is really dry, try a cool mist humidifier in his room at night.
