The winter season can bring some key challenges for new parents as newborns are a little more sensitive and need extra care in the cold season. Ensure their skin is well moisturized and protected, say experts.
Rajesh Vohra, CEO, Artsana India (Chicco), in assistance with Chicco Osservatorio, suggests:
Must-Have Body Lotions For Winter
To fight dryness of baby skin in winters, selecting the perfect baby lotion can be a task for parents as babies have thin skin which loses its moisture faster in comparison to adults.
Body lotion with Parabens-free formula and richness of sweet almond milk are ideal for protection and moisturizing baby's delicate skin.
Moisturizing Rich Cream
In winter, parents should always make sure that baby is being moisturized properly, especially the most exposed areas like face, hands and legs after bath to keep the baby's skin soft and supple throughout the day. Good quality cream with the richness of Omega-3 and Vitamin E helps in deeply nourishing skin's driest areas keeping it nourished all along the day.
Nourishment Through Massage Oil
The skin of a newborn is very gentle and requires special care each day. Massaging the baby with special baby oil that is parabens-free and enriched with high nourishing properties of rice bran oil is very beneficial for the baby's delicate skin.
Winter Apparels, For Keeping Your Baby Warm With Comfort
While shopping for babies, parents must look for certified and high quality natural fabrics which are soft and comfortable so that it does not cause rashes and discomfort to the baby.
Protection From Dry Air
In winter, the humidity level drops and dry air can affect baby's health -- from nasal infection to sore throat -- which they can't even let you know, and from dry skin and cracked lips to breathing issues in some cases. A humidifier in the baby's room adds much-needed moisture to the air and creates favourable breathing conditions, allowing your baby to sleep comfortably.
