Newborn baby skincare is a delicate matter. In the early months, as your baby's immune system develops, you will want to use the mildest baby washes and moisturisers. But when dry skin, eczema, and nappy rash appear, it's time to treat those problems. It’s important to remember that if your baby develops a rash or any other skin issue to visit your G.P. for a diagnosis and treatment regime.  

Newborn baby skin care is a delicate matter - follow our top tips for managing your baby's skin.

  • Keep it natural 

Your newborn needs preservative-free, fragrance-free baby skincare products. Every CarePlus store has an instore Baby Advisor to ensure you get the right products for your baby’s needs. 

  • Use baby soaps sparingly 

When it comes to baby soaps, washes/cleansers, and shampoos; cleansers and washes are mild and safe for newborns but use baby soaps sparingly as they can be drying on newborn skin. 

  • Moisturise  

Baby moisturisers help nourish newborn skin but should be used sparingly on tiny newborns. 

  • Use nappy rash ointment 

This provides baby's skin with a barrier to moisture -- protecting newborn skin so wet diapers do not cause irritation to the skin. 

  • Family History  

If there is a family history of eczema, hay fever or asthma (atopy), normal soaps, bubble baths or moisturisers should not be used. They may trigger eczema in children with a family history of atopy. Elave have a full range of baby shampoos, washes and moisturisers that are suitable to use from birth and onwards. 

  • Protect baby’s skin

Petroleum jelly can act as a protective barrier against wet nappies.
