Skin care for Baby is one of my concerns as a first-time mom. I’m very cautious when it comes to products that I apply on my child’s skin as I know how sensitive it is. I easily get alarmed when I see rashes or redness on my daughter’s soft and smooth baby skin.
A few months ago, my one-year-old developed dryness and redness around her neck, which eventually turned into rashes. I assumed it was very itchy since she learned to habitually scratch the affected area. Since I’m a first-time mom, I didn’t know what caused it and I wasn’t sure how to properly treat it.
It’s a good thing that, in this digital age, baby skin care tips for new moms are available at your fingertips. A few minutes of social media search introduced me to Aveeno Baby. Of course, who wouldn’t recognize Aveeno, which is known for its use of natural ingredients? It’s a brand even my Dad and brother use for relieving dry skin. So, I was excited to learn that Aveeno now offers skin care products for babies and children.
Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisturizing Cream
One of the best sellers in the Aveeno Baby product line is the Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Moisturizing Cream. As Aveeno claims this product is clinically proven to moisturize for 24 hours and soothe a baby’s dry, sensitive skin, I gave it a try and applied on my toddler’s neck. I applied it on the affected area twice a day – one after her morning bath and one at night before going to bed. After a few days, the redness, dryness and rashes on my daughter’s neck gradually disappeared.
- Made from natural ingredients (Colloidal Oatmeal and rich emollients), paraben-free, pythalate-free
- Effective in soothing dry skin
- Clinically proven to moisturize for 24 hours
- Absorbs quickly
- Hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, pedia-recommended (Gentle enough for everyday use even for newborns)
Since the Aveeno Baby moisturizing cream worked like magic for my little girl, I was convinced to try the AVEENO Baby Wash and Shampoo as a daily baby wash for my daughter. There’s so much to love about this baby wash that even Tash’s meticulous grand mom likes it.
- Tear-free formula – My little Tash experiences no eye irritation every bath time.
- Contains Oat Extract that provides a soothing effect while gently nourishing my baby’s skin
- Mild fragrance
- Soap free and paraben free
Eczema Therapy for Baby and Toddler
Aveeno Baby also has a special product line for Eczema Therapy for Baby and Toddler. Eczema is a skin condition that usually appears as an itchy, red patch on the hands, feet, backs of elbows and around knees, ankles and wrists. Aveeno Baby Eczema Therapy treatment products are clinically proven to help relieve dry, itchy, irritated skin with eczema.
My only complaint is that Aveeno Baby is, honestly, pricey compared to other baby brands out there. But the more expensive price, of course, comes with a lot of advantages.
And yes, now I’m one of those #OAMOms you see on social media who trust Aveeno Baby when it comes to their child’s skin care.
