Baby skin care is also an important thing to do. As babies skin is sensitive and more prunes to micro-organisms and other infections. Their immune system is as delicate as babies themselves are. Different chemical, dyes in clothes, fragrance, baby soaps and detergents can cause different skin infections, rashes, allergies and asthma in new born babies. Even your touch does influence your baby’s skin. Below are some tips for the baby skin care.

1. Natural skin care for baby:
Babies are born with the natural protective covering around skin called “vernix”. They usually have a bit wrinkly skin. This protective layer (vernix) peels off naturally with the passage of time, mostly during the first few weeks, so avoid rubbing or to rash it or to use different creams and lotions for this. Chemicals are not good for soft skin of babies. Go for natural ways like soft oil message with any light oil or natural oil. Giving a good message to new born is important one-on-one time. Like cuddling, a massage is a way to convey your love and affection for your baby. Try using olive or pure Coconut oil for baby’s body message. It keeps their skin naturally safe. In fact, research shows that a baby's very survival depends on being touched by others .As touch triggers hormones, boosts immunity, and helps fight disease

2. Resist bathing your baby frequently:
To protect your baby’s natural skin oils, avoid too-frequent bathing of baby. It leaves baby’s skin vulnerable, so it reacts to the different allergens in the environment. It should be no more than twice or three times a week. New born don’t get very dirty except when there is need for the diaper change. So expert’s advice not to use too much shampoos and soaps on baby’s skin. For the few early months, give them sponge bath two or three times a week and in other days go for cleaning of mouth, neck and diaper area with mild baby soap After bathing try to wrap the baby in soft baby towels and don’t rub them. Try to let the baby’s skin air dry.

3. Watch out for the weather:
Baby’s skin is so sensitive that it needs to be very careful while exposing them to sunlight. Keep your baby out of the sun as much as possible.  It is good to expose them to sunlight not before then six months. For babies younger than 6 months, sunscreen should be applied only to smaller area that couldn’t be covered with clothes like hands, face and neck. . Apply sun screen before going out with minimum SPF 30.sun screen can be applied on all the body, leaving eye area. Avoid taking baby out around 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This is when the sun is at the peak of heat. Wrap them in cool soft wraps so that their skin would not react to heat as their skin is susceptible to heat rashes.
In winter, weather use to be very dry and can harm baby’s skin. Use jersey wraps and warm cloths during winter and place cool mist humidifier so that air in the baby’s room shouldn’t be dry.

4. Be Careful with Baby’s Laundry:
Baby’s skin responds very harshly to different detergent and dyes. Try to use baby laundry detergents that are “Free and clear” as recommended by doctors to avoid any skin rash and allergies from the heavy chemicals, fragrance and dyes in detergents.
