A newborn babys skin is much thinner and more sensitive than adult skin. These practical tips will help you care for your babys skin.
Keep it simple
You will notice a lot of skincare products designed for babies in the baby aisle of any supermarket.
However, most experts recommend you use plain water when washing your baby for the first 4 weeks or so.
The chemicals and fragrances found in many baby skincare and bath products can be irritating to your babys skin.
Common skincare concerns
You do not need to use shampoo in most young babies hair. Use a baby comb gently to remove flakes of skin from your babys hair.
