8 Remedies For Dry Skin Problems In Babies

New born babies are every sensitive to everything and anything once out of their mother’s womb. One of the main challenge for them is to get adjusted with  the outer environment. The skin being normal is one of the boon for new born infants and with some effort we can always keep our baby skin healthy.

As for as my  daughter is concerned she has faced dryness in skin right from birth. She totally inherited my dry skin problem . I had discussed this dry skin issues with every possible experienced and non-experienced person, even my pediatrician. I was not sure what could be used on a new born infant’s skin.

Fortunately, I and my daughter have passed all those phases and she is grown into a healthy toddler.

Some remedies I have followed for my baby dry skin problem which might help you out too are as follows:-

  • Every day gentle massage of baby’s skin with oil.
  • Choose oil that is pure in its form. Coconut oil or olive oil are the best recommended. Strictly no to perfumed oil.
  • Before using the oil, slightly warming it up is a good practice.
  • First few weeks of her birth, I was suggested to use nothing other than gram flour for my baby.
  • Zero base emollient cream was recommended by my pediatrician.
  • Cetaphil lotion was also recommended by my doctor.
  • I have used Tedi Bar soap for my daughter. That was the first bath soap I introduced to her skin even before using Pigeon Bath Liquid Soap.
  • Any problematic areas on the baby’s skin can be soothed by calamine lotion.

Consult your doctor if you are facing major skin problem in your new born baby.

    In the 1st week when my daughter was born, even her skin was dry and peeling. it was cold month of Feb. I was suggested to wipe the skin with cotton dipped in warm water then a light massage with pure coconut oil….in a week the skin peeling stopped…

  3. Thas a wonderful thing which you shared Prerana.

  4. Where is the tedi soap available? I haven’t seen it anywhere online either…

  5. I have a 3 year old and I find the usual body washes (Pigeon, JnJ) to be too mild for him. He is super active and sweats a lot! So I am looking for something which is strong enough (he gets quite dirty) and yet mild enough for a 3 year old (I know that sounds contradictory!). 🙂
