How To Win Against Baby’s Dry Skin?

Whoever has experienced motherhood would agree that women can never forget the moment when their freshly delivered bundles of cuteness were handed over to them. It was an incredible experience for me as well. I was delighted to touch him, but felt alarmed at the appearance of that extra-soft brand new baby. I had expected him to have so-called 'baby-soft' skin, but it looked dry and flaky. As a first-time mom, I tried comforting myself by reassuring that the baby's skin will become normal after regulating his internal temperature and swept passed the worrying thoughts for the moment. 

Just like every educated new-age mom, I made sure not to use any of the adult bathing products on my baby and would buy products meant for little one's delicate skin. While the skin peeling was still happening on baby's legs, shoulders, ankles; I noticed that the baby's skin won't retain moisture for longer despite quick absorption and repeated application of moisturiser and would show signs of skin irritation occasionally. Probably, the product I used for my baby wasn't specifically formulated for this age group. 

And then came the eye-opener realisation, that I need to switch to some dermatologically developed moisturising lotion that gently cares for skin's specific needs. After a thorough research, I put my faith in Sebamed, one of the safest baby-care product brands and thought of giving it's Baby Lotion a try.  
What intrigued me about testing Sebamed Baby Lotion which made me aware that healthy skin's normal pH value should be 5.5 and maintaining this pH value leads to essential skin renewal, guards skin from infections and imparts a healthy glow. Optimal protection and compatibility with the skin is only achieved with a pH value of 5.5. Now if you're wondering why baby'skin needs such extra care? The reason is that a baby is born with  skin pH 7 and it is ideal to use baby skin care products with pH 5.5 to help develop a protective Acid Mantle faster to prepare his skin against harmful environmental influences.
I was convinced to have picked a skin-safe baby lotion that could not just add moisture to his skin, but also prevent moisture already in the skin from evaporating. Since that day it's been a vital product in my baby's diaper bag that I would carry along everywhere. The easy-to-use packaging makes it so convenient to squeeze little amount of lotion and apply in a jiffy. I somehow like the color theme of Sebamed baby products' packaging in soothing white and blue colors. A thumbs up for botanical fragrance which is really pleasant. 
The non-irritating lotion is gentle enough to suit baby skin after few weeks of birth and nurtures his skin without being harsh. The mothers whose infants have minor skin conditions can use Sebamed products after checking with a paediatrician since all their products fulfill #pH5point5 criteria. 
Dryness can sometimes be really uncomfortable for your little one. But a light body massage given to #SebamedBaby after bath will hydrate him well with extra nourishment. 

I’m happy I made healthy choices for my baby!
