How to keep your baby's skin healthy, soft and supple

There’s a good reason why people say ‘As soft as a baby’s bottom.’ There’s nothing quite like the soft, delicate skin of a baby. However, many babies are prone to skin irritation in their first few months.

In fact, according to research by What to Expect, about 40% of babies are born with milia – white or yellow dots that appear on the skin. Additionally, there’s a 50/50 chance they will develop erythema toxicum (also known as newborn rash and fleabite rash). Other conditions to look out for include the likes of baby eczema, cradle cap, baby acne and sensitive skin in general – just to name a few.

To help tackle these issues, make sure to check out the below products designed specifically for babies' delicate, paper thin skin.
