What are some great baby products for helping with baby's dry skin?

Hi everyone!

I am a new mom and I am having a hard time dealing with my baby's dry skin. His skin is so dry and flaky, especially on his hands and feet. I have been using some moisturizing creams and lotions, but they don't seem to be working. I am worried that if I don't find a solution soon, his dry skin might lead to other skin problems.

So, I am wondering if any of you have any recommendations for great baby products that can help with dry skin. I am looking for something gentle, yet effective and safe to use on my baby's delicate skin.

Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I had the same problem with my baby's dry skin. I was recommended a non-greasy cream by my doctor and I found it to be very effective. I used it twice daily, in the morning and before bed. I also made sure I was using a soap that was specifically formulated for dry and sensitive skin.

Another thing I found helpful was investing in a humidifier. I placed it in my baby's room to keep the air moist, and it helped keep his skin moisturized throughout the day.

I hope you find these tips useful. Remember, dry skin in babies is quite common, but with a little bit of care and a good skincare regime, you can manage it effectively.



I know how concerning dry skin can be on a baby. My baby had eczema, which led to dryness all over her body. Physicians often recommend us to try a petroleum jelly-based moisturizer. However, I found it too greasy and oily for my baby's skin.

Instead, I started using a cream formulated explicitly for eczema. The cream had natural ingredients such as colloidal oatmeal and calendula oil. It was specifically designed to calm redness and itching, and it worked wonders on my baby's eczema and dry skin.

Also, I used to put a layer of this cream before dressing up and after the bath. It helped to lock the moisture in the skin. I avoided soaps and bubble baths, and only used a mild soap-free baby wash.

I hope this helps and good luck with your baby's dry skin. Don't hesitate to ask a physician for suggestions if it doesn't improve.


Hi there,

I agree with all of the helpful suggestions given so far, but I wanted to add one more. When my baby had dry skin, I started bathing her using a natural baby soap made with goat milk. Goat milk soap is rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals that can help soothe and moisturize dry skin.

I also started to rub a small amount of coconut oil on my baby's skin after her bath. It was an effective way to heal the dry skin and prevented it from getting worse.

In addition to the above, I made sure my baby was not overheated as it can make the condition worse. Keeping the indoor temperature at a comfortable level, dressing her in loose-fitting clothes, and avoiding overheating was beneficial.

I hope these additional tips help you. Good luck in your efforts to manage your baby's dry skin.



My baby had dry skin when he was born. Initially, I tried a few baby lotions but it didn't seem to make a big difference. Then, one of my friends recommended a baby cream with shea butter as the main ingredient.

I applied this cream twice a day on my baby's skin, and within just a few days, I noticed that his skin was much softer and less dry. The cream was also gentle and non-greasy. Since then, I have been using this cream regularly to keep my baby's skin moisturized.

One tip that worked well for me was to only use warm water for baths instead of hot water. Hot water can dry out the baby's skin easily, so it's important to be careful when adjusting the temperature of the water.

I hope this helps and all the best with your baby's dry skin.


Hi there!

I totally understand your concern as I had the same problem with my baby. I tried various products, but the one that worked best for me was a baby oil made from natural ingredients such as chamomile and lavender. I gently massaged a small amount into my baby's skin after his bath and noticed a big difference in the dryness of his skin within just a few days.

In addition to that, I also tried a gentle oatmeal bath for my baby and that worked well too. It's important to use warm, not hot water and to avoid using any soaps or bath products that contain fragrances or harsh chemicals.

I hope this helps and good luck dealing with your baby's dry skin!
