Caring for your baby’s skin: Your baby’s skin is delicate and sensitive. This combination makes your baby’s skin super responsive to your touch, which is great! Every time you hold, cuddle or massage your baby, their sensitive skin responds positively to the soothing, nurturing sensation, which is so important to your baby’s overall development.
Unfortunately, because babies’ skin is so delicate and sensitive, it is also more vulnerable to getting irritated or dried from the smallest external stimuli. Dribbling can trigger rash formation on a baby’s cheeks and neck. Cold, dry air can sap moisture from your baby’s skin and cause wind burn. Extended contact with dampness can result in painful chafing.
Fortunately, there are several things you can do to prevent dribble rash, wind burn and chafing and protect your baby’s delicate, sensitive skin.
Go Easy On The Bath Schedules
Bath times are special for both baby and you. Babies love to soak in the warm, sudsy water and for parents this is yet another opportunity to hold their little one. However, you must be careful not to overdo it. Twice a week is generally enough, especially during the first year. Any more than that will strip off the natural oils that protect your baby’s delicate skin, leaving it more prone to dryness, irritation and eczema.
Baby Skincare In Between Baths
In between baths, a light sponge bath should suffice to get rid of lingering perspiration.
Wipe away dribble and any spilt milk from baby’s mouth, cheeks and neck regularly with a soft, damp cloth. The longer it stays on your baby’s skin, the higher the chances of developing baby rash.
After every nappy change, clean the diaper area with a little warm water and dry with a soft, dry cloth. Leave your baby nappy-free for a few minutes to dry the area completely.
Use Only Unscented Baby Products From Reputed Brands
Applying baby lotion regularly helps lock in the skin’s natural oils on your baby’s skin and also provides all of the benefits of a massage. Babies love and thrive on gentle, soothing massages.
It is important to use only unscented products on baby’s skin. Additives and perfumes that are added to make skincare products more appealing can actually irritate or even harm your baby’s delicate skin and are best avoided.
The skin on your baby’s face is particularly delicate and requires special attention. You need to be particularly careful about what lotions you use on your baby’s face. Read through the product ingredients carefully to ensure that it does not contain any perfume or other harmful additives.

When applied over your baby’s skin, it immediately forms a gentle but effective protective barrier and provides instant relief from dribble rash, wind burn, and chafing.
Applying DU’IT Baby Facial Serum twice a day, after cleaning and drying baby’s face, will keep the skin protected at all times and minimize reaction to external irritants. This is a concentrated product so you only need to apply a small amount over your baby’s face for maximum protection.
