    Default Best product for newborn very dry skin?

    My babe is 9 days old and it looks like she has inherited my dry skin
    I have been using J&J bedtime bath or Top to Toe wash in her bath, followed by a body massage with 'Milk' brand "Sleepy Bubs" massage oil.
    But I have noticed today that her skin is peeling all over and getting worse.

    Can anyone recommend a good bath wash/lotion/oil? Someone mentioned QV.. what is it and does it work? My mum said that she used Alpha Kerri oil in my bath as a baby..DH thinks a squirt of baby oil in her bath will do the trick and is pretty much the same thing.

    Just after some recommendations please!

    For my son who has dry skin and eczema, I use soap free products. I swear by dermaveen wash (including their shampoo and extra sensitive wash). Try pure coconut oil in the bath or straight on his skin.

    I use qv skin lotion on my ds who has eczema. It it ph balanced, colour free, perfume free, propylene free, can be used on infants. You can also get qv bath oil and qv wash.

    I've used lots of different things on ds for his eczema and the qv is the only thing that worked.

    QV in the bath followed by a massage with olive oil is what we use here. So far so good.

    Coconut Oil ..

    My son also peeled in the first two weeks. Apparently it's completely normal, it's the top layer of skin that was soaked in amniotic fluid that is peeling away ...

    It's normal for their skin to peel in the first few weeks. My bub is 4 weeks and it is calming.

    Agree about ditching J&J!! Use QV or Olive oil in bath and try Moo Goo moisturizer.
