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

Hello everyone,

I am a new mother and my baby has been suffering from eczema since birth. I have tried many products but nothing seems to work. I'm looking for recommendations on baby products that have worked for others in helping with eczema. I want to make sure that the products are safe for my baby's delicate skin and not too harsh. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Hello there! I understand how you feel as my little one also had eczema. After trying different products, I found that applying Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream specifically designed for eczema-prone skin provided a significant difference in the appearance of the skin. I liked that it was fragrance-free and gentle on my baby's sensitive skin. It's also clinically proven to help reduce the itching and irritation that comes with eczema. I highly recommend giving it a try. Additionally, bathing your baby with the Cetaphil Baby Eczema Calming Wash can also soothe and moisturize their skin. It's formulated with calming ingredients such as aloe vera and vitamin B5, which can help reduce the itching. I hope these recommendations help!

Hello, I have an 11-month-old who has been dealing with eczema for the past few months. One product that has been really helpful is the Mustela Stelatopia Emollient Cream. This cream is specifically designed for eczema-prone skin and it's fragrance-free, dye-free, and contains no parabens, phthalates, or phenoxyethanol which makes it highly safe for my baby's delicate skin. We use it after bathing and before bed, and it has helped significantly to keep my baby's eczema under control.

In addition to this, we also tried the Babyganics Eczema Care Skin Protectant Cream which is really gentle and moisturizes the skin. It's made of natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin and it worked well for us.

I would recommend talking to your pediatrician or dermatologist though for identifying the cause of eczema because every child’s skin is different and allergies or sensitivities could be a contributing factor to eczema. Once you identify the cause, customize the treatment accordingly, but we've been very pleased with these two products. I hope this helps!

Hi there, I've been in your shoes too. When my son had eczema at a young age, I used the Burt's Bees Baby Nourishing Lotion. It has natural ingredients like shea butter and aloe vera, which moisturized and kept his skin soft. It's also free of phthalates, parabens, petrolatum, and SLS, which made me feel assured it was safe for him.

Another product that worked wonders for us was Weleda Baby Calendula Diaper Rash Cream. Although it was created for diaper rashes, it also helped to soothe my son's eczema patches. It has natural ingredients like Calendula and Chamomile flower, which calmed, nourished, and protected his skin. What's more, it doesn't contain any synthetic fragrances or preservatives, which was important to me because my son has sensitive skin.

I hope you find these recommendations helpful. All the best on your eczema journey with your little one!

Hi! I'm a mom of two, and one of my sons had severe eczema as a baby. It was heartbreaking to see my little one dealing with itchy, inflamed skin. We tried numerous products, and the Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream was one of them that worked best. It's made with colloidal oatmeal, which helps soothe the skin, and it's clinically proven to relieve eczema symptoms.

We also found that using a humidifier helped keep the air moist and prevented skin from getting too dry. We placed it in his room and saw a noticeable improvement in his skin condition. Additionally, we tried using laundry detergents that were free of dyes and fragrances and opted for organic cotton clothing. It's essential to avoid things that can trigger eczema, even the ones that we wouldn't typically expect.

Lastly, I would recommend using the Triple Cream Eczema Care. It contains natural ingredients like beeswax and chamomile, which helped to relieve the itching and soothe my son's irritated skin.

Dealing with eczema can be a roller coaster ride, but with the right products and consistent skin care routines, it is manageable. I hope these recommendations help!

Hi there! My baby also struggled with eczema from birth and we have tried many different products over time. The one that worked really well for us was the Tubby Todd All Over Ointment. It's made with natural ingredients and doesn't contain any harsh chemicals. We found that it helped to soothe the redness and inflammation, and also kept her skin moisturized. Another product that worked well was the Cerave Baby Moisturizing Cream. It contains ceramides which are great for helping to repair the skin barrier. We applied it twice a day and saw a noticeable improvement in our baby's eczema within a week. I hope this helps!

Hey there! I completely understand what you're going through! My son also struggled with eczema, and it was a trying time for us. However, we did find some products that worked for us. One of them was the Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, which is a non-greasy and lightweight moisturizer that's free of fragrances, parabens, and harsh chemicals. It's gentle on the skin and helped to soothe my son's itchy, dry eczema patches. We used it daily, and it made a significant difference.

We also used the Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment which helped in retaining moisture, and it's a great option for irritated skin. Its fast-absorbing formula made it easy to use, and keep my son's skin moisturized.

Apart from using the right products, I also made some diet changes and eliminated certain foods from my diet, which could exacerbate eczema in babies through breastfeeding. I also tried to keep my son's skin clean and dry and avoided tight clothing, which can cause weeping or bleeding.

Ultimately, my advice would be to keep noticing the triggers that can lead to an eczema flare-up, maintain healthy skin hygiene, and choose products that are safe and contain natural ingredients. I hope this helps!
