Guest Post By :- Jordana

When you become a mother whether first or second , you think of everything that is best for your child, be it the food, the diapers, clothes etc.  So the activity which immediately starts as soon as baby arrives in the world is peeing and pooing which poses quite a challenge for the young mothers.Like most young mothers I too struggled initially trying to give my baby the best care I could until I came across a very promising newly launched product by Pampers. ‘Pampers’ is very well known brand when it comes to diapers.I recently began using their newly launched “Premium Care Pants” .One of my blogging friend who attended the launch of this new diapers shared with me a few samples that she had got. They are the softest diaper I have come across till now. This ensures they are very gentle on my baby’s soft skin. The breathable material lets air flow and prevents diaper rash. This has lotion that helps in the prevention from acid harm released by their stools & urine. The diapers are so light that the babies hardly feel them wearing and this allows free movement. The tape on diaper makes it extra friendly and mess free while you want to take it off .Just roll the used diaper and stick it to dispose . A great boon especially while travelling.

Five Tips To Keep Your Babies’ Skin Safe & Healthy

1)Remember, newborn skin is soft and sensitive. Keep baby’s skin hydrated by bathing in warm water for only three to five minutes. Avoid letting your baby sit or play or soak for long in soapy water. Apply a baby lotion or moisturizer immediately after bath while skin is still wet, and then pat dry instead of rubbing.

2) Block the Sun-

Keep your baby out of the sun as much as possible. When she goes out in the daytime, use these items to cover and protect her tender skin:

  • A hat
  • Tightly woven clothing with long sleeves and pants
  • Sunglasses with ultraviolet (UV) protection
  • A broad-spectrum sunscreen (that blocks out both UVA and UVB rays) with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15

For babies younger than 6 months, apply sunscreen only to small areas that might be hard to cover with clothes, such as the face and hands. Rub it in well. You can apply sunscreen to all skin areas of an older baby’s body, but be careful around his eyes. Also, try not to take him out between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. That’s when the sun is the strongest and can do the most harm.

3)Be Careful With the Baby’s Laundry-When washing baby clothes, use a detergent that’s free of perfumes and dyes.Many brands carry a ‘free and clear’ product. Fabric softener, in any form, should be avoided.And don’t save the “free and clear” product just for your baby’s laundry — use it for the entire family.A rash could appear anywhere on the body that is covered by clothing, or on the face, due to contact with bedding or parents’ clothing.

4)Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize-use a fragrance-free emollient cream or ointment immediately after the bath to prevent dry skin.Moisturize your baby’s skin more frequently if it’s dry, during winter months, or if he has eczema.Creams and ointments are preferred over lotions, which are more likely to irritate a newborn’s skin.In cool, dry, winter climates, parents should use heavy moisturizing cream on their babies at least twice a day. The greasier, the better.

5)Diapered skin is often wet, exposed to a lot of friction from rubbing — and then there’s the poop. All can irritate a baby’s skin. To take care of this sensitive area, change your baby’s diaper often. Cleanse the area gently with disposable wipes that are alcohol- and fragrance-free, or use a damp washcloth.Let your baby “air out” when possible, and use a barrier cream before strapping a diaper back on.A barrier ointment containing either zinc oxide or petroleum jelly should be applied liberally to the skin after every diaper change. It helps keep your little one’s skin from getting too wet and raw.
