I have an almost 5month old daughter but this just occured to me today.
Do you use oil after the bath or some kind of moisturiser??
I currently put a little bath cleaning oil from eucerin in her bath water. It’s what I use myself because of sensitive skin.
Her skin is lovely and soft and not dry whatsoever. But I wonder if I should use something extra. I have a little container with olive oil just in case. I used it for her peeling skin on her feet.
I prefer to use more natural products and not stuff like ‘johnsons’.

I think with babies, less is more. I use a little Aveeno Baby lotion on her dry scaly legs and feet, but otherwise let her skin be.
My baby care instructor, a former neonatal nurse who fosters unwanted newborns until they are adoptable, says any edible oil is fine, but she recommends grape seed oil so your baby won’t smell like a salad.

My LO had horrible dry skin on his head, the doctor said to use a little baby oil and leave it on. He sometimes has dry patches on his cheek and tummy, I use liveclean for that and it seems to work.
I haven’t seen any other types of baby oil besides Johnson’s, so I used that. What brands have others tried?

I don’t use anything extra unless it is needed. When it is needed, I start by adding oil to their bath water first, and use moisturizer (big fan of burts bees and Aveeno baby) if needed. I don’t like putting oil right on them (although I’ve never heard any advice saying otherwise-just don’t like to).
