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.

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.
