    Default Do you moisturise your baby after every bath?

    Do you use powder? Moisturiser? Oils? Or all?

    Yes after every bath and whenever I get a chance during the day. It's because DD1 had eczema as a baby and the paediatrician dermatalogist said to use thick sorbolene cream after bath and that really helped. So with DD2 I'm pretty vigilant with the moisturising. Actually even DD1 who is 6 gets sorbolene rubbed all over her after her baths/showers everyday too. I wish I looked after my skin like I do with the kids' skin.

    No, we don't routinely use any products after baths. He has no skin issues though. He once had a bit of dry skin and I just rubbed some olive oil into it.

    Nothing on DD but we use moogoo on DS because he has dermatitis. Poor DD doesn't get bubble bath anymore because it's so bad for DS's skin. We use qv in the bath for both kids.

    Not anymore but when they were newborns I used to massage them with moisturiser after a bath to help relax them before putting them to bed for the night.

    Yes with QV cream ( as recommended by our GP) he does have mild skin issues though, which seem to have cleared up since he turned 2 (now 28 months) we daren't stop now in case the skin issues return!
