Keeping Baby’s Soft During Winter Months
Dry skin is something that I’ve battled all my life. My husband, on the other hand has never used lotion and naturally retains moisture. When our first child came along, I knew after the first two weeks that he had inherited my very dry skin. It started with his scalp. Cradle cap, dry skin, flaking. Then it seemed to move down to his tiny cheeks. It made him so uncomfortable that he was constantly rubbing his cheeks which only made his dry skin and Eczema worse. You can see from the picture below that was taken at 5 weeks, that his cheeks were to red and dry and broken out. 🙁
He started getting little dry patches all over his baby soft skin. I was constantly keeping lotion on it, but it only seemed to make it worse. After a visit to our pediatrician on the whole issue, he recommended Aquaphor and also gave me a prescription for a steroid cream. I was ready to try anything but wanted to give aquaphor a try before going to a steroid cream. It worked it’s wonders. And minus a little bit of eczema on his cheeks, it cleared up. We did have to use the steroid cream for a couple weeks on his cheeks, but after that I only used Aquaphor and it stayed gone. I made it a habit of using this healing ointment after every bath. Aquaphor is definitely a product that I believe in. If you are new to the aquaphor world, let me tell you a bit more about the product.
We received the healing ointment and gentle wash & shampoo. We have the healing ointment on hand, but I’d never heard of the gentle wash & shampoo before. Maybe it wasn’t available a few years ago?
