Dr. Lynne Riley's Top Skin-care Tips
How to care for baby 's soft skin-
Paediatrician, Dr Lynne Riley, has some top tips on how to keep your baby 's skin as soft as the day she was born:
1. When bathing your baby in the first couple of weeks of life, only use water. After this, it 's best to use a 100% perfume and colour free moisturising bath or body wash.
2. Babies love the sensation of touch, so when you 're both relaxed give your baby a gentle massage with a specially formulated oil gel. It 's a great way to lock in moisture after bathing.
3. Shampooing should be determined by the amount of hair your baby has and how oily it is. Babies with thin hair can have it washed with all-in-one baby wash, while mild shampoo is best for those with more hair.
4. Finally, having a new baby is a wonderful time in life, so take every opportunity to relax and enjoy all the pampering that you both deserve.
