Irritated skin may be a sign that your baby has sensitive skin. Perhaps your laundry detergent or baby soap is not mild enough and / or your baths are too hot. Maybe your baby is reacting to something in your breast milk or has an intolerance to cow based formula? It is possible that they are sensitive to new foods if you have started feeding them solids. Giving isolated foods for three to five days in a row should help you to pinpoint if it is a new food that is bothering your baby.
The following may help baby’s skin:
- calendula cream for babies
- gentle baby wash/shampoo
- glaxal base moisturizing cream
- hydrocortisone cream
- silicone skin cream
