How to Keep Your Baby’s Skin Healthy?

How to Keep Your Baby’s Skin Healthy?

Babies are super cute with their soft skins and mushy smiles. Keeping their delicate skin healthy and free from any kind of rashes becomes a question at times. It takes time for the babies to get adjusted to the environment and any minor thing could result in itching or irritation. Doctors usually recommend using natural and chemical-free products for bathing, toileting or moisturizing. 

Bathing

  • Give them a bath every day using a mild soap or shampoo recommended for baby skin. Use a disinfectant if possible to avoid infections or allergies.
  • Do not try any new products on their skin. 
  • Use natural wipes and soft towels to dry them. Wash the towels with a disinfectant regularly. 

Powdering

  • Use talcum powders prepared exclusively for babies. 
  • Powders with fragrances should be avoided.
  • Do not use powders with grains, especially for the diaper area. In fact, avoid powdering the diaper area as it might lead to infections. 

Diapers

  • Use fresh and clean diapers. 
  • Not all brands might suit your baby’s skin. If you notice any rashes or irritation change the brand immediately. 
  • Do not wrap the diapers too tight. Allow the skin to breathe. Usually, keep room for an index finger to be placed comfortably under the diaper.
  • Do not leave a diaper too long after it gets wet. 
  • Take the child to a pediatrician if the rashes do not subside soon. 

Dry Skin 

  • Babies are prone to dry skin during the first few months and it is essential to keep their skin hydrated and healthy.
  • Use pure coconut oil to gently rub onto their skin. 
  • Do not bathe the baby too often. Allow the natural moisture in the body to be retained by the skin. 
  • Do not apply flour or any other paste without consulting your doctor.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

I have been a client with YouCare for the past 2 years. Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.

We had hired a nanny from YouCare for our grandchild. My son was in town and needed help with his new born baby and elder child. Our caregiver was very loving, trained and a thorough professional. She took very good care of both the kids and ensured that the entire family was comfortable while she was around. We were very satisfied with Team YouCare and their services.
