Your sweet baby has very sensitive skin. Exposure to chemicals in lotions, shampoos and soaps can irritate your child’s skin and cause eczema or rashes. You still need to clean your precious child, and the baby clothes have to be washed. Here is what you can do to protect your darling infant’s perfect skin.
A Little Goes a Long Way
Your baby isn’t terribly active, so you don’t typically have to worry about cleaning sweat or grime from your child’s skin. A small amount of soap with water will usually be enough to clean your child sufficiently. Your baby also doesn’t need to be bathed every day. You can clean your child just two to three times a week to keep your baby clean and fresh. The baby clothes must be washed as they are soiled, but you can reduce the amount of detergent required by rinsing heavily soiled clothes first.
Invest in Quality Detergent
Harsh detergents leave a residue on your adorable baby clothes, and that residue can irritate your child’s skin. Gentle detergents that don’t have harsh chemicals or colors are a little more expensive, but they are worth the extra expense to protect your child’s skin. You can reduce the expense by washing your baby’s clothes in dedicated loads using the special detergent.
Antibacterial Items Should be Avoided
The same ingredients that kill germs are particularly harmful to your baby’s delicate skin. It’s tempting to use plenty of soap when handling your child, but the soaps should not be used on your child’s skin. It’s also important to make sure you rinse it off your hands completely before picking up your baby son or daughter.
Artificial Fragrances not Required
Scented soaps and shampoos may smell fantastic to you, but they aren’t necessary for your darling child. Babies have their own lovely scent, and you don’t want to cover that beautiful natural smell with anything artificial. Look for soaps and shampoos that are fragrance free and safe for use on sensitive skin. Visit Cleopatra’s Choice for a full selection of soaps that are safe for use on your sweet little infant.
The same chemicals that make soaps foam can be harmful for your baby’s skin. Devita’s Natural Choice does not contain any foaming agents that might cause skin irritation for your darling child. The only scent is the natural and pleasant odor from the essential oils in the soap, and there are no artificial surfactants or chemicals. Gentle and safe, it cleans effectively without any foaming action.
Caring for your baby’s sensitive, wonderful skin is as easy as buying the right soaps and detergents. Wash your child’s clothes separately to prevent leaving a chemical residue that will irritate his or her skin. Bathe your infant less frequently, and use only soaps that are free of parabens, chemicals, foaming agents and artificial fragrances. With a little care, you can protect your child’s skin and keep your baby health. Visit Cleopatra’s Choice for safe, gentle soaps that you and your baby will both appreciate and enjoy.
