As a new mom, you aren’t quite sure what to do. It seems like you are getting advice from everyone and it is, of course, all contradicting the other. When it comes to your baby, mom knows best. However, knowing some information about a baby’s hygiene can help you to make the best decision for your little bundle of joy!
How to Take Care of Your Baby’s Hygiene
Babies Eyes are Very Sensitive
A baby’s eyes are still developing and maturing over the first year of their life. This means baby’s eyes are very sensitive. Even water can cause them to burn. When washing your baby, it is important to be careful around the face and eyes and use soaps formulated for the gentleness of baby’s delicate eyes. My personal favorite is JOHNSON’S® Head-to-Toe baby wash. It is specially formulated to prevent eyes from burning.
Baby’s Skin is Sensitive
Did you know a baby’s skin is 10-times more sensitive than an adults skin? This means that the soaps and lotions you use both in bathing your baby and in washing clothes can affect babies developing a skin. If your little bundle has rashes or other skin problems, you may want to try a different soap. Use bath soaps and laundry soaps that are both hypoallergenic, paraben free, and phthalate free. JOHNSON’S® products are both dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic making its mild cleanser perfect for baby’s delicate skin.
Fragrances Can Play a Role in Sleep
The fragrances used in keeping your baby clean can play a key role in how well your baby sleeps. Did you know that studies show that a baby cries 25% less before sleep when bathed with a fragranced product? There are plenty of fragrance products out there, but you have to be careful to choose products that won’t harm babies skin. Look for products that contain natural calming aromas such as JOHNSON’S® BEDTIME baby bath. All BEDTIME products contain NATURALCALM an exclusive aroma with essences of Jasmine Blossoms designed to calm a baby for sleep. Some other fragrances include Lavender, Chamomile, and Sandalwood.
Moisturizing is Important
Because a baby’s skin loses moisture much quicker than adults, it is important to moisturize baby’s skin with lotion after each bath and at least once a day. Both JOHNSON’S® Baby Lotion and JOHNSON’S® BEDTIME lotion nourishes your baby’s skin and is gentle enough to use both morning and night.
When it comes to your baby, only the best will do. Do your research and go with brands you trust!
