Caring for a Baby

If you are the one with babies around the house, then you should definitely know how to care for the baby’ skin?As we all know that baby’s skin are really sensitive and delicate, it needs utmost care from everything around. Everything here means environment, weather, people, clothes, hygiene, sun, and water. We all know that babies need comfort as well as hygiene which indirectly impacts their health. For example, a bad diaper can create rough rashes on baby’s skin, it can further led to skin diseases and hence a baby cry. And that is why it is said that it is important to powder the baby’s private parts and change the diaper at lesser intervals. Especially the wet ones should be removed quickly.

Coming to Clothing, I prefer cotton clothes for babies, as they are the most comfortable clothing for delicate skins. Hard nets, rayon and polyester would help heat and humidity, which in turn will again create rashes. You should also keep in mind that the baby’s clothes should not be very tight as it would create harsh lines on the skin, also impacts blood circulation in the areas like thighs, stomach, and necks. If your baby is under 5 months, do not fashion them with hard hairbands or hard caps. They need comfort everywhere, as they do not understand fashion. Making them wear a shoe is such a good idea, but then the shoe should be soft and comfy; otherwise it would automatically be removed. Do not attempt to make them wear things like hard bangles or bracelets. And a big No for chains around their necks or ankles. They look much better without them.

Some babies love bathing and some loathe them. But it is important to look at the timing of baby bath. It is better to bathe them twice a thrice a week, other times you can just sponge them. Cleaning of the private area with wet tissue wipes is another good option. You must have notice happy babies after a clean private area and a comfy diaper. Check the quality of diapers before you make them wear those. Especially the elastic part, I have some very hard diapers creating lines around the baby’s stomach.

We all need moisturizer. Why leave these small creatures? Their delicate skin becomes dry and flaky. Best time to moisturize is after a bath, it helps locking the moisture for a long time. Make sure you use baby moisturizer.

5 Most Useful tips for Baby Skin Care

Touch is the language of love. Along with the spoken word, eye contact, body language, the act of touching plays an important role in mediating through tiny neurological receptors in our skin. It allows us to share our emotions and feelings with others. And that is why it is said that kissing, hand holding, hugging are some of the ways we allow our skin to communicate with others. In case of infants, who can’t talk or act according to their feelings, they communicate through their skin, this is also called as tactile touch.  Like, the touch of mother’s hand can be felt by the baby. Let’s have a look as how to take care of the most beautiful feeling call touch through baby’s skin.

1. Block the Sun
Keeping your baby out of the sun as much as possible. When you go out with your baby during day time. Make sure your baby is covered with a cap or a shawl. As UV rays during daytime is too harmful for babies’ skin.

2.Timing of Bath
Doctors say you don’t have to bath your baby fully seven days a week. Full bath ritual should be for 2-3 days a week. Other time, you can sponge the area around diapers.  Strong soap, sturdy sponge and hot water are all wrong for baby’s skin.  As Strong soaps and cleansers degrease the skin making them dry and rash.

 3.Use proper Laundry for your baby’s cloth.
You should be careful with your babies’ laundry, as harsh chemical can be of adverse effects to a baby’s skin. A rash could appear anywhere on the body that is covered by clothing. Make sure the detergents used for baby’s laundry is mild and perfume free.

4. Good Diapers
Using good quality diapers which are soft is important, but it is important to change the diapers often. To take care of the sensitive area, it is good to clean the area gently with disposable wipes like baby Wash cloths. They are also convenient for travel and quite handy.

5. Moisturize

Moisturize your baby frequently, especially during winters. Otherwise, you will notice lot of skin peelings due to dry skin. For best use, pat your child’s skin with moisturizer after  a bath. When buying a cloth for a baby, remember hard cloths are not for babies. Better buy good quality cotton clothes.
