When my little guy was an infant, I had a very hard time taking care of his skin.
First, he had baby eczema, which is totally normal. Then, it dried out and he had cradle cap. Then, the eczema flared up again.
With his sensitive skin, there weren’t any products I found that wouldn’t irritate it even further, until I found Aquaphor.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment is perfect for a newborn’s skin because it is fragrance-free and preservative-free.
You can use it to help heal AND prevent diaper rash. Luke had diaper rash so frequently that his bottom would bleed, until I began applying a preventative layer of Aquaphor at each diaper change.
I also used it on his eczema. It was the perfect balance of soothing, healing and moisturizing, so the eczema cleared up and stayed away.
When he started teething, you’d have thought he rubbed sand paper on his chin because it became so irritated by the constant drool. Aquaphor to the rescue again!
Along with the Healing Ointment, Aquaphor makes a shampoo and baby wash as well.
(P.S. The Healing Ointment is also extraordinary for nursing moms!)
