Proper skin care for a child up to a year
The skin of children is very delicate, especially in infancy. During the first two weeks it is covered with a thin film that protected the baby from amniotic fluid, later this film disappears.
Care for the skin of children must be very carefully and accurately. Among the whole variety of household chemicals and hygiene products for children, give preference to proven products. Do not look at the bright packaging, but only at the manufacturer and composition. It should be as natural as possible, not contain too aggressive chemical components. Such as alcohol, acetate, benzate. In addition to the usual shampoos, creams and powders, completely new products have appeared that have already managed to gain popularity among young mothers. First of all, these are wet sanitary napkins. They became simply irreplaceable in every house where there is a newborn. You must admit that at night it is not possible to wash your baby every time, and bathing is contraindicated at temperature. But wiping with wet wipes will not only cleanse the skin, but also disinfect, moisturize it and relieve irritation.
Another novelty is diaper cream. This tool is applied to the skin when your baby will be forced to spend in diapers for a long time. It creates a barrier between the diaper and the skin of the baby, protecting it from irritation.
Water treatments are very beneficial for the baby. But doctors do not recommend bathing him every day. Up to three months will be enough three times a week. You can use the infusion of a series for swimming. It is added to bathing water. Soap and shampoo also do not have to be used every time, it all depends on how dirty your baby is.
If the baby’s skin is too dry and peeling, then most likely he lacks vitamins, consult a doctor, but for now lubricate the skin with oil or baby milk. Massage is also useful for baby's skin. It improves blood circulation, makes the skin more elastic. For massage, you can use special creams or oil.
In the summer, you need to take care of the baby's skin more carefully. Indeed, from the heat the formation of prickly heat and diaper rash is possible. Do not overheat the child, dress according to the weather, do not leave in the afternoon in the sun. If the air temperature is above 30C, it is better not to make it walk at all, wait until the heat subsides.
If nevertheless there is a prickly heat, or diaper rash is concerned, then powders or creams that contain zinc and copper will help to cope with them. These substances perfectly dry the skin, coping with bacteria.
