Winter Skin Care for Babies + Toddlers 👶🏼🤍✨ Post by @themidwestnurse

Extra sensitive skin means extra dry babes in the cold weather ⛄️ decreased moisture in the air mixed with sensitive skin, drooling and infant eczema can get messy! But there’s plenty of simple remedies to restore your cherub’s smooth and silky complexion

PREVENTION
☁️ Keep baths short + lukewarm
☁️ Use a small amount of fragrance free soap (or soap free cleanser) @mustelausa / @honest
☁️ Infants 6+ months should be drinking lots of water
☁️ Moisturizer should contain water and oil / no fragrances and as little chemical additives as possible
☁️ Use a bland emollient (@burtsbeesbaby Multi-purpose Baby Ointment) but avoid olive/sunflower oil
☁️ Apply lotion while slightly damp from the bath
☁️ Pat dry after bath / don’t rub
☁️ Use a plastic stroller cover to keep wind out
☁️ Don’t overheat the house, hot air can dry out skin even more
☁️ Use fragrance free + baby friendly detergent

TREATMENT
🤍 Bundle up to protect from harsh winds / winter air
🤍 Add a humidifier to sleep routine
🤍 Apply lotion + lip balm (or breastmilk) 2-3x per day
🤍 Call the doctor if dryness begins to crack, spread, become painfully itchy
