- Use clean, lukewarm water when cleaning your baby. Avoid using soap as it can irritate the skin.
- After cleaning, allow your baby’s bottom to dry in open air for a few minutes.
- Avoid perfumed toiletries or wipes.
Use a baby ointment during every nappy change, especially at bedtime when the nappy is on for the longest period to help protect your baby's sensitive skin. Lightly massage the ointment into the bottom to reinforce the skin’s natural barrier.
Baby ointment helps sensitive skin to repair its natural protective barrier while keeping it soft, smooth and moisturized. It forms a transparent protective barrier on the skin, letting the skin breathe and protecting it from the irritants. Choose a baby ointment that is non-sticky, easy to clean, and can be applied effortlessly. It also help if it's free from fragrances, colorants and preservatives that may irritate your baby’s delicate skin.
