Baby's skin is about ten times thinner than an adult's -- which means parents have to be ten times more delicate when dealing with their new-born's skin.
1. Avoid direct sunlight
Up until your baby is six months old, try avoiding direct sunlight as much as possible. Your baby's skin is p tender, so protect it as much as possible.
When going out, make sure to put a hat on your baby's head, dress your baby in long sleeves to cover as much of their body as possible, and apply sunscreen on body parts that can't be covered with clothing.
Avoid taking your baby out in the sun between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun is at its strongest.
2. Wash your baby's clothes with scent-free detergent
Your baby's skin will come in contact with your clothes as often as he/she comes in contact with his/her own skin.
Consider switching out the detergent for laundry for the entire house if possible.
You should opt for scent-free detergent that is also dye-free. Go hunt searching for a natural detergent if possible.
3. Keep your baby's skin moisturized
Apply fragrance-free emollient cream or ointments on your baby's skin immediately after giving him/her a bath.
You want to do whatever you can to avoid dry skin.
4. Give your baby a full body bath only twice a week
There is no need to give your baby a tub bath every day until he/she starts crawling and eating solids.
Your baby's skin is sensitive, so avoid using soap or opt for scent-free mild products.
5. Wash new clothes and towels before contact with your baby
Always wash anything that will come in close contact with your baby's skin. That includes clothes, hats, towels, bed sheets and covers.
