When people hear baby, often the first thing that comes to mind is their supple, soft skin and that unmatched fresh, new baby scent.
Far more sensitive than ours, baby’s skin deserves only the best. And, it's just as important to protect baby’s skin starting from day one. Here are some tips and products every mom needs to know:
Don’t Bathe Baby Too Often
While adults tend to bath daily (unless you’re the mom of a newborn), a common misconception is that baby needs a daily bath too. According to Karl Neumann, MD, a pediatrician at Forest Hills Pediatric Associates, “Two or three times a week is plenty.”
“Of course, clean the diaper area as often as necessary. Frequent bathing may dry out the skin and remove oils and other substances that protect against infections and other irritants.”
Chunky Baby Rolls
Aside from the goo’s and gah’s, everyone loves babies for their rolls. While everyone else seems to want to lose any excess fat they have, everyone loves chunky babies, but be sure to pay close, special attention to not only cleaning the spaces in between baby’s rolls, but removing any excess moisture that might get trapped there, too. At three months, when baby starts to drool more frequently, this can become especially troublesome (and a wee bit gross) when food particles and milk creep into those baby folds we all love.
After months of searching for the right organic skin care partner to match our organic Egyptian Cotton, we found it with Badger Balm.

Badger Diaper Cream is the best on the market, sustainable and perfect for baby.
Diaper rash often occurs when diapers are too tight or wet diapers stay on too long. To further help reduce the occurrence of diaper rash, keep the area open to air as long as possible and check frequently for wet diapers and change them as soon as you notice it is wet.
