Taking care of babies, especially during their first few months, is quite a challenging task. Your baby's skin is not just soft but delicate too, and therefore you should be extra careful while choosing skincare products for your little one. As his/her skin is still in its initial development phase, your child may be more prone to skin conditions like rashes, cradle cap, infantile eczema or even more severe diseases. A few chemicals present in baby skincare products can be extremely harmful for your child. Some ingredients like synthetic fragrances, parabens, formaldehyde, sulfate and more can all together cause growth issues, skin irritation, respiratory issues and many more problems for your kid. Therefore, it is recommended that you always consult your pediatrician before choosing any baby product. Also, be prepared to deal with any skin issues that may affect your baby this summer. You don't necessarily have to rely on pharmaceutical drugs to tackle your baby's skin woes. There are many chemical-free remedies you can try. Below is a list of some natural remedies which can help soothe your baby's skin rashes, dryness, itching and more.
Babies often suffer from prickle heat rashes, inflammation and itching during this season. An oatmeal bath can be a great remedy for such problems. It is finely ground and can be added to a bathtub filled with lukewarm water.
One of the most promising and simple natural remedies for rashes in newborns which focuses on both interior and the exterior of your child's skin is breast milk. This is because breastmilk is loaded with immunoglobulins that help in fighting infections.
Note: In case of extreme redness, irritation, itching, pus, etc, please consult a pediatrician.
