We all know that babies are most precious gift of love and they have really softest and most beautiful skin of all, it is our very important and an essential duty to have special and gentle care of our baby skin. Bathing a baby is not only a healthy and good habit, it also becomes an enjoyable and memorable time for you and your baby. During bathing you can also check for any issues like reddish areas, rashes, etc. that are new with the baby skin. Babies are not exposed to dirt as to the extent of adults, so while choosing the perfect soap for your baby kindly go for the soap with mildest composition and it is not necessary to bath the baby every day but two to three times a week. Bathing a baby is definitely a beautiful feel for the parent especially mother since she can feel the expressions from her baby and ensure that her baby is safe and out of dirt. Baby soap must not irritate your toddler skin and cause tear issue. It must nourish and moisturize the baby skin and keep it healthy. When your baby is getting bathed it is like he/she is cleaned from too much moisture and the portions between the skin folds gets dried.

Recommended Ingredients

Baby soaps that are rich in shea butter, olive, aloe butter, sesame oil, sunflower, beeswax, cocoa butter and almond oils and other natural ingredients are most recommended for babies. It is better to choose baby soap that doesn’t have any fragrance and harsh chemicals like petrochemical extracts else it will harm the skin and health too.

  • You can also protect your baby’s head from tap with the spout cover so your baby’s safety is little more ensured.
