  • When you’re a first-time mom, you’ll realize what love at first sight truly is as you hold your newborn for the first time.

    With this unconditional love comes a promise that you’ll do everything you can to take care of your baby — and a degree of worry as to how you should care for them.

    From knowing which formula and other baby products to use to figuring out how to lull your baby to sleep, first-time moms only want what’s best for their child. While many of your experienced mommy friends and relatives will recommend different ways of taking care of your newborn, remember there’s more than one “right” way to do it.

    However, there is one thing many moms can agree on — and that is using baby-skin-friendly products on your newborn. Babies have delicate, sensitive skin that can easily be irritated when exposed to harsh formulas.

    As such, you need to choose products with gentle formulas to promote baby’s healthy skin — like what you can expect from Cetaphil Baby, which are great for babies with normal skin.

    Below, the products that help keep baby skin healthy:

    1. Gentle Wash & Shampoo

    Time for a baby bath! This gentle, all-in-one shampoo and body wash can be used from your baby’s head all the way down to their tiny toes. Ideal for daily use, the Gentle Wash & Shampoo doesn’t dry out or irritate baby’s skin — instead, it contains glycerine and panthenol to help strengthen your newborn’s skin barrier.

    2. Moisturising Bath & Wash

    Pure and angelic as they look, babies can gather dirt between their chubby folds, arms, and legs from their surroundings — and even from those who have carried them. The Moisturising Bath & Wash is specially formulated to gently cleanse and soothe baby’s sensitive skin during bath time. The lathering cleanser’s formula also contains baby lotion, plus glycerin and panthenol, to help keep your newborn’s skin moisturized, smooth, and strengthened.

    3. Shampoo

    Your baby’s fine hair can trap dirt and an odd blend of scents after some time, so rinse it out with a gentle, non-drying shampoo. This Shampoo gently cleanses baby’s hair while helping balance the pH levels of their scalp, keeping both hair and scalp fresh and hydrated long after bath time. It also has a tear-free formula to make bathtime more fun.

    4. Gentle Cleansing Bar

    Sometimes, you can’t help but plant kisses all over your baby’s face. They’re just too cute not to do it! But after your playtime with the baby, wash them up with the Gentle Cleansing Bar, which is ideal for cleansing their face and body. The bar has five nourishing ingredients that won’t strip or dry out your baby’s skin, but instead leaves it soft, clean, and hydrated.

    5. Daily Lotion

    The phrase “smooth as a baby’s bum” exists because of how naturally soft baby skin can look. But no matter how effortlessly smooth your baby’s skin is, it could still benefit from a moisturizer to keep it extra nourished. Apply the Daily Lotion all over your baby after bathing them to help soothe, soften, improve skin texture and keep skin moisturized for up to 24 hours.

    6. Advanced Protection Cream

    Unfortunately, some babies can be prone to chafed and chapped skin due to dryness and irritation. You can help prevent these skin conditions when you apply the Advanced Protection Cream on the affected areas. Formulated with organic calendula, the cream soothes, hydrates, and protects the skin barrier and helps reduce the frequency and reappearance of rashes and chafed skin.

    7. Cetaphil PRO AD Derma Wash & Moisturizer

    For dry, itchy, and eczema–prone skin, you will need baby skincare products to specifically address these conditions. Cetaphil Pro AD Derma is suitable for newborns and now come in trial pack sizes.

    Cetaphil PRO AD Derma Wash & Moisturizer contain Filaggrin Technology to help stimulate repair and restoration of your baby’s dry, damaged, skin barrier, while ceramides help lock in hydration to smoothen baby skin. Even better: adults with skin asthma or eczema may also use these products, too!

    Aside from caring for baby’s skin and picking the right products, first-time and experienced moms alike are also constantly faced with many other challenges and questions about raising their kids.

    Which is why aside from formulating skin-friendly products, Cetaphil Baby also launched the Mommy Dialogues Facebook group. Aligned with Cetaphil Baby’s four pillars — Healthy Food, Healthy Play, Healthy Sleep, and Healthy Skin — Mommy Dialogues aims to help moms and dads navigate parenthood by encouraging them to start conversations with fellow parents on how to better care for their children in the new normal.

    If this seems right up your parental alley, check out and join the Cetaphil Baby Mommy Dialogues Facebook group here.

    Being a mom may not be always easy, but it is certainly very rewarding especially when you see your child happy and healthy. Whenever you feel lost or overwhelmed, it might help to remember that, as the old saying goes, “it takes a village to care for a child” — so don’t hesitate to ask for help whenever you need to.
