The day your baby is born, his skin is brutally thrust into a completely new environment.
Your baby needs to be cleaned several times a day in addition to his daily bath: after diaper change and meals.
The daily bath is an important time for your baby: in addition to keeping him clean, it helps develop his sensory perception. It's also a special part of the day you can share together.
Your baby’s diaper needs to be changed up to 7 or 8 times a day. An infant’s very delicate little bottom can easily become irritated from dampness, contact with urine and stools.
Up until age 3, your child’s skin is delicate and immature: it has few defenses against harsh elements (cold, wind, sun, dry air, etc.).
Atopic eczema is an increasingly common skin problem that leads to extreme dryness, itchiness and skin discomfort that can be intense.
Your baby’s skin has a wealth of unique cell potential, but it is also delicate and undeveloped: it doesn’t yet function as a complete protective barrier.
The diaper area’s very delicate skin can easily become irritated, especially during the baby’s first year of life. Up to 60% of infants are affected during the first 12 months.
During the first few weeks of life, babies may have small yellowish crusty patches, greasy to the touch, on their scalp or top of their face. This is “cradle cap”.
