It’s no secret that babies have naturally sensitive skin that is very delicate, just like them. It’s easy for baby to develop dry skin, irritation, and rashes if you don’t take care of it like you would with your own skin. Baby’s skin needs even more care and attention because it is so sensitive. Plus, the more you hold and massage baby, the stronger your bond will grow and baby will love the affection and mom or dad’s soothing embrace. Here are some helpful tips for taking care of baby’s sensitive skin:
When it comes to baby’s skin, you want to use very natural and safe skincare and bath products that contain no chemicals, fragrances, or other possibly irritating substances. Bathtime Baby is a luxurious baby skincare line that is safe and gentle, formulated with organic plant and fruit extracts, along with skin nourishing vitamins and antioxidants that will protect and care for your baby's delicate skin.
There’s no need to bathe your baby every single day – this will just end up drying baby’s skin more. Three times a week is more than enough so that you’re not washing away the natural oils produced by baby’s skin for protection. You also don’t want to aggravate eczema by washing too much.
If you’re using a new bath or skincare item on baby for the first time and you are unsure if baby will have a reaction to it, always test it on a small spot first. You don’t want to risk baby having an allergic reaction to one of the product’s ingredients and developing a rash everywhere so check on that one spot after several hours and if there is no reaction then it is probably safe to use.
Make sure that baby is properly dried after a bath and check for wet diapers frequently so you can change them before they cause a rash. You can wash baby’s diaper area with a fragrance-free cleanser or just water and avoid using baby wipes that have perfume or alcohol. Then pat baby dry instead of rubbing her dry.
If you or a family member has purchased new clothes for baby, always wash them before putting them on. Clothing is often treated with chemicals to give clothing a “new” look, but these chemicals can be harsh on baby’s skin. Try to use natural and eco-friendly laundry detergents with no added fragrance like Rockin’ Green laundry soap.

Bathtime Kids & Bathtime Baby is a luxurious, eco-friendly baby safe bath time products for kids and babies that is gentle and formulated with all plant-based ingredients, skin nourishing vitamins, and antioxidants that protect and care for children’s delicate skin.
When the Bathtime Baby& Kids co-founder was expecting, she found natural/organic baby products completely greenwashed due to a corrupt industry that allows products to market themselves as natural but still contain ingredients with harsh chemicals and endocrine disruptors. She was motivated to create a better, safer skin care line of vegan bath products for kids. The result became a collection of natural and organic baby products that are paraben-free, propylene glycol-free, phthalate-free, petroleum-distilates-free and hypoallergenic.
