Re: What do you use to freshen you baby?

There is a rinseless wash by mustela called Phisiobebe. Ive never tried it but it has good reviews on Amazon. You can get a at TRUS and BRUS as well as other kids stores.

have you thought about infant massage? This way your DC will get wonderful time with his/her mom or dad and great stimulation as well. We use almond oil during Natalie's massage.

Re: What do you use to freshen you baby?

i just use plain old water for "spot" cleanings then lotion or oil him up . he has really sensitive skin and so far i've been using burts apricot oil, what i believe may be northern essences baby oil (i bought it from a different store though and it has no lable that says a comp name ) and london frogg's toadally tender. mostly we've been using the toadally tender lately though. we bathe about every other day in lukewarm water, sometimes more often, sometimes less often. but we do massage the oil or cream in...he loves it!!!!

Re: What do you use to freshen you baby?

Just water, a lot of rinseless washes have a lot of alcohol in them which can dry out skin. At least the ones that the hospital uses. If your dc doesn't have a problem with dry skin then you don't have to worry about giving a bath every day. If they do then I'd start cutting back on bath time. My older dc get a bath/shower every day. The baby gets one whenever he gets dirty. I wash his face and hands several times a day with just water and washcloth.

I just use a little baby soap on a rag and rinse.

Re: What do you use to freshen you baby?

I use plain water on a velour wipe. we bathe weekly and do the wipe down throughut the day as needed. Washing everyday was too rough on their skin. DD3 still has issues.

I've had LOTS of experiance with many many dry skinned/eczema babies and this worked with every single one of them. (Including DH, though he's not a baby) Also, Gentle Naturals baby ezcema cream will help if there are certain problem areas. But normal "dry skin" lotion should work.
I did not know this. My kids all have very dry skin & our ped told us not bathe everyday. How do you get the lotion to rub in while still wet? Isn't it messy? And it doesn't rub off on the towel? I will have to try this. Thanks

I agree. My son had eczema and our ped dermatologist said to bathe daily, sometimes use aveeno bath oil in the water and put on an unscented cream like galaxal base, while they are still wet. It made a huge difference. Being in dipes all day I think they need a daily bath. God knows I need a daily shower
