oceanblue:  I don’t know, but if you can edit your topic,  add babies to the title.  You might get more clicks (at least more useful ones).

oceanblue:  Maybe try a tiny bit of organic coconut oil? NO idea if it is safe for babies but I hear its great on adult skin and all natural, so no chemicals 

I can only use mostly natural products ( super sensitive skin) otherwise my dry skin gets worse…I think its all the chemicals  (sulfites/parabens ect). Which sucks cause natural stuff is so $$

oceanblue:  I don’t know if it’s safe for babies or not, but I was Jojoba Oil on my dry skin, and it clears up quickly!

I second the coconut oil. You could also try grapeseed which is very light, moisturising and doesn’t clog pores ( coconut has a tendancy to on some skin). I use it on my face as well as my 12 year old’s. He has severly dry skin especially in the cold winter air.

Source: I make my own natural body products.

my mom always swore by glaxol base.. and she always had really terrible skin!! I am unsure if it is safe for babies but I do know that it was the only lotion she was allowed to use for her ezema when she was pregnant.

oceanblue:  maybe also try switching soaps……my nephew had eczema as an infant and using goat’s milk soap really helped.

Coconut Oil – of course you should find Organic unrefined, cold pressed. You can find this at Costco. The big container. Its amazing!

When I was a nanny we used Aquaphor on the baby’s dry skin and it seemed to help. It’s not the most natural stuff though so if it were me I would try some of the things recommended above first.

I don’t have kids so I don’t have personal experience. But my sister and quite a few of my friends use coconut oil. Its safe to use on babies and is actually good for their skin. Its oil tho so you dont need very much.
