One thing that our family loves is bath time. Recently we found out that Micah may have eczema. Breakouts beyond breakout have been going on. Especially, at random times. Having a baby that has sensitive skin can sometimes send you in so many different ways. We recently switched to a different type of skincare product that aids and helps sensitive skin. Plus it is hypoallergenic. Here’s how baby bath time for sensitive skin goes. Plus a few bath tips for babies with sensitive skin.
Figuring out when we will have bath time. Your baby doesn’t necessarily need to have a bath daily. Also, choose what is best for you. We use bathtime as part of our nightly routine now at 10 months old. Before we would give bathtime a go 3-4 times a week. Micah seems to simmer down more. We also keep the routine the same and most of the time have bathtime around the same time. Usually around 7:30-8 PM at night. Other times can be unpredictable. Like when a blowout happens.
Bath Time Routine
One of the bath tips for babies I recommend is how your baby will be in the bath. We used to use a sit-me-up seat. He is chunkier when it comes to his thighs so we had to stop using it after a few months. It was a pain getting him out since his legs didn’t want to come out. Then getting all wet because he couldn’t easily be removed was so hard. If they sold one that opens up instead that would be perfect and even last longer. Once Micah was able to sit up for a significant amount of time, he was able to utilize the seat.
Now we fill the bathtub up a smidge. Not too much but enough for him to splash and kick his legs. I’ve also heard a laundry basket in the tub may work. In case you don’t feel comfortable with your baby fully around water. He loves the water. He also loves to get up and down. S we don’t add a ton of water for that reason. Plus enough where we’re able to grab water to clean him off with. We love using THIS NUBY TEAR FREE RINSE PAIL
Sensitive Skin Bath Time Essentials
We started using Baby Dove-sensitive skincare products. So far we have used their rich moisture skincare products and it’s been a smooth ride. They have shampoo, wash, and lotion. The shampoo and wash are both tear-free which is a huge plus. They don’t have that overbearing smell and Micah is always smelling like a baby. One thing you don’t sacrifice. You still get that fresh baby smell.
Right now Nuby is partnering with Baby Dove and offering this whole sensitive skin set. You get the Nuby Tear-Free Rinse Pail, Nuby Baby Bath Toys, and Baby Dove Sensitive Skin Care products.
Baby skincare is so important. Especially, within the first year. Every case is different but eczema and allergies can look different from one baby to another. Using the right products is important.
