Baby Skin Care info

 When it comes to our baby skin care info a new parent can really be taken for a loop. And when they get a little older, it does not get much easier. Check out the 1951 video with the kids on Nail and hair care. But first...

Ben is now 15 but it seems like it was yesterday when we gave him his first bath. We checked the water temp 6 times made sure there was not too much water in the little tub ( back and forth between Karen and I 3 times).

Had all of the towels and blankets ready so he would not get a chill. Ben came in February. Yep all set. Well when he was placed in the water and started to you keep going, do you stop, let's look like two dogs chasing there tail's....

We kept going and Ben lived through his first bath.

It was not until around the 1 year mark did we really get into the diaper rash. And boy did Ben have it from time to time. I wish that I had been into the baby skin care info at that time. I wish I had the time to look for information on it.

At the first sign of any diaper rash you have to act right away. Otherwise a secondary infection may set in. Be sure to change diapers frequently. You can wash the bottom with a herbal infusion with thyme, chamomile, lavender, or distilled witch hazel. The hard part may be in waiting until the bottom is really dry. I know it's hard to take the time before applying a cream and diaper. Any creams with calendula, chamomile or comfrey will help protect and heal the skin. Calendula and Chamomile creams will also help with infection.

An old and effective remedy for diaper rash is egg white and oxygen. Apply egg white repeatedly to the affected area and between each application dry it with a hair dryer on a low setting. This way you build up a thick protective layer of albumen which protects the skin and allows it to heal rapidly.

Cradle Cap

This baby skin care info is less the better. Now the cradle cap is the thick yellow kind of brown crusty on the baby's scalp. Babies get it from having over active glands in the skin which secrete oily sebum. It can last until the child is three years old.

You do not won’t to work to hard in removing this as it will increase the sebum secretion. To help clear cradle cap, rub the scalp with olive oil and wash the loosened crusts off with shampoo the next day. Remove only the loose flakes. You do not wont to pick off the crusts that are not loose, as this may cause bleeding or infection of the scalp.

Herbs that are good for baby skin care info are, lavender, rosemary or lemon. These herbs can be added to the olive oil when you use it to loosen the cradle cap. After shampooing you can rinse the hair with meadowsweet or burdock infusion or ordinary tea.

How to give your baby's delicate skin proper sun protection

(NC)—This summer, while taking your baby out for a stroll or to play in the park, remember to protect your child from the damaging rays of the sun. Research has shown that a baby's skin barrier is not fully functional until approximately two years old, which heightens his or her risk of sun damage.

Here are some tips for buying sun protection for your baby:

• Before buying any sunscreen for babies under the age of six months, consult with your physician to make sure it is recommended.

• A baby sunscreen should offer a barrier between the skin and the sun to provide instant, broad spectrum protection from both UVB burning rays and UVA aging rays.

• Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF and apply generously. Most adults do not follow sunscreen application instructions, achieving only 10-25% of the expected SPF. For optimal protection, it is important to apply sunscreen generously, using approximately 2 full tablespoons to cover the entire body.

• Look for oil-free, fragrance-free, waterproof, hypoallergenic and Para-Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA)-free sunscreens. Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunscreen SPF 60 with Purescreen is a non-whitening formula that contains a blend of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which are naturally-sourced sunscreen ingredients known to be gentle on delicate and sensitive skin.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common form of skin cancer diagnosed today and is one of the most preventable. This year, the Neutrogena brand is donating $2 to the Canadian Cancer Society from the sale of each sunscreen product sold in Canada, to a maximum donation of $200,000. Why not make your sun protection purchases do double duty - protect your child and raise money for cancer research. You can find more information about sun protection at

New Eczema Research Reveals Safe, Natural Prevention for Infants
ByGloria MacTaggart

According to the largest and most influential of all dermatologic associations, the American Academy of Dermatologists, eczema affects 10 to 20 percent of all infants, but new research has found an inexpensive and easily accessible preventive treatment - pre and probiotics given to pregnant mothers and infants. Although 80 percent of eczema is caused by contact with harsh chemicals and needs to be treated topically with an effective dry skin and eczema treatment, these new findings will bring relief and a possible cure to the millions of sufferers whose compromised immune systems are the root of the problem.

The new study was conducted on 1223 pregnant women and their newborn infants by Kaarina Kukkonen and colleagues from the University of Helsinki, Finland, and Valio R & D. Half of all the pregnant women received daily probiotic supplements for two to four weeks prior to delivery while the other half was given a placebo. After delivery, the infants' diets were also supplemented with either the same probiotics in combination with galacto-oligosaccharides, the prebiotic found in breast milk, or a placebo, for a period of six months. The researchers reported a 34 percent reduction in atopic eczema for those who received the pre and probiotics supplementation.

This is good news for adults as well as children; although about half the infants with eczema grow out of it within five to 15 years, many of them carry it through to adulthood.

For the 80 percent whose skin condition stems from contact with chemicals, a shielding lotion is still the best solution. Unlike conventional lotions which only add surface moisture that temporarily relieves dry skin or eczema, a shielding lotion bonds with the outer layer of the skin to form a protective layer that locks in natural moisture and keeps the irritating chemicals out.
