Does Your Bub Have Sensitive Skin?

Babies naturally have sensitive skin – after all, they’re brand new to this world! However, some babies have much more sensitive skin than others, which can be a challenge for new parents. Here’s some insight into what may be triggering your bub’s discomfort and how to help them feel happier in their own skin.

Signs of very sensitive skin

Babies with sensitive skin often have the following symptoms:

  • Dryness – If your little one’s skin looks dehydrated, flaky, itchy, and sore, then they may have dry skin. It’s best to avoid any products that are heavily perfumed as these tend to contain alcohol that dries the skin and chemicals that can cause severe irritation and burning. Look for products that are fragrance free or only infused with mild  pure essential oilsand are fragrance and alcohol-free to help soothe and heal their skin. It’s also a good idea to reduce bathing to essential times only, as water can dehydrate dry skin even further by stripping awaynatural oil on the skin.
  • Nappy rash – Newborn skin is very thin and delicate, and anything that rubs against it can cause irritation, redness, a burning sensation, and an unhappy bub. This is very common in the diaper area, as most bub’s wear diapers almost constantly, so the skin gets no relief. This is made worse by the presence of waste. Again, fragrance-free, natural products offer the most moisture and protection for sensitive skin without drying or irritating the rash area. It’s also a good idea to change diapers often to reduce time spent in dirty nappies, to wash your bub with alcohol-free wipes or warm water between changes, and to give your little one as much time as possible without a diaper on.
  • Eczema – Babies can develop atopic dermatitis or eczema just like anyone else, and it typically looks red and weepy or like a raised rash, especially in areas that are typically moist or very dry (elbows, knees, around the mouth or scalp). Your doctor can help with diagnosis and treatment, and using natural, fragrance-free products that contain no alcohol will help restore your little one’s healthy skin and help prevent future flare-ups.
  • Acne – Pimples aren’t just a teen issue; newborns can get acne too! Luckily, most bubs grow out of it, so those little red or bumps on their face shouldn’t stick around for too long. Of course, it’s always best to consult your doctor for treatment, but most cases clear up well with a good but gentle skincare routine. Simply use products that are natural, designed for sensitive baby skin, and free of perfume, and your little one’s acne should clear up in time.
