Oodles of tenderness

When a baby feels safe certain feel good hormones are secreted in its body, which naturally increases the immunity. A strong immune system boosts the skin health of the baby. Skin to skin contact between the mother and child improves the secure feeling of the child. So pamper your child with lots of tender love and care. When a child is happy and satisfied it translates into a naturally healthy skin.

Careful use of fabrics

Organic fabrics are a great way to protect the skin of the baby. You can also go in for cotton which is soft and absorbent and is gentle on the baby’s skin. 
When you are dressing your kid in layers the warm and fuzzy fleece will be your best bet. Bamboo is also gaining popularity, it has thermal regulating, hypo-allergenic and antibacterial properties. Bamboo fabrics can add variety to your kid’s wardrobe.




Healthy food

According to WHO recommendation, breastfeeding is sufficient for the first six months of the baby. From the sixth month, you can feed your baby healthy home cooked food. Bananas, sweet potatoes, eggs, avocados, carrots, yogurt, cheese, chicken, citrus fruits and peas can add variety to your kid’s diet. Fruits and veggies are heaped up with nourishing antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which pep up the health quotient of your baby’s skin and protects it.


Gentle care

You can massage your baby with virgin coconut oil, it improves the circulation of the blood. After the bath, you can apply smooth and nonperfumed moisturizer. American Academy of Dermatology recommends avoiding using sunscreen for babies younger than 6 months and to generally keep them in the shade. For babies above six months, you can use sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.

Preventing nappy rash

Keeping the diaper area free of rash is quite a challenge, for this you should change diapers immediately when wet or soiled. For both my kids I used Pampers, it has a high absorbing capacity and keep the baby’s skin dry. Clean the diaper area with the mild soapy water, pat it dry, it would be great if the baby gets airy bottom for some time. Apply a thin layer of barrier cream before putting the fresh nappy. Now your baby is all clean and dry to explore his little world.

Conclusion

Your bundle of joy is a gift from the heaven above trusting that you will take care of it. So have fun with your baby and let the good times roll in.

Take care
