Your Newborn’s Sensitive Skin Deserves the Best Protective CareYour newborn has ultra-sensitive skin that needs your tender loving care. We’ll show you simple ways to care for and protect your baby’s skin.
Newborn skin is much thinner and more delicate than adult skin, which is why it should be handled with extra care. Protecting your newborn’s extra-sensitive skin is very important because it is at this stage that it is most prone to irritations and skin infections.

Here are some ways to make sure your newborn’s skin is cared for and protected:
1. Choose diapers suited for newborn’s sensitive skin
With the vast number of products in the market, you should be more discerning about the products you use on your newborn and make sure that these are suited for their sensitive skin. This is most especially true when it comes to diapers, since your baby will be using this product the most for the first few years of his life. The skin on your baby’s bottom is just as sensitive as the rest of his skin so use a quality diaper that’s specifically designed for sensitive skin, such as Pampers Active Baby -- the top choice of the Smart Parenting Best for Baby Awards 2014, tested to absorb pee quicker and keep baby’s skin dry longer than other brands with its soft and absorbent fabric. Its top sheet is also infused with hypoallergenic aloe lotion to help prevent irritation and protect your newborn’s skin. Plus, its flexible, stretchy waist design also keeps diaper snug, keeping your newborn comfortable, whether she’s resting or actively stretching her legs.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
2. Keep bath time shortADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Long and frequent baths could strip off the natural oils from your newborn’s skin, leaving his skin dry. Ideally, your baby should have a short bath just once a day. Make sure you feel the temperature of the water, too; lukewarm is best and just right for your baby. Also use bath products suited for infants because adult bath toiletries may contain ingredients that are too harsh for newborn skin.
3. Keep baby’s skin moisturizedADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
As newborn skin tends to be thin and dry, moisturizing helps keep it smooth and prevents skin patching or cracking which can cause great discomfort for your baby. After bath time, pat the skin gently to dry with a towel and then gently massage hypoallergenic lotion or baby oil onto your baby’s skin.
Moms, just heed these simple tips to be able to protect your newborn’s skin in its early stages. Your newborn’s skin needs to be tended with only the best tender love, care and protection that you as a mom can give him!
