Importance of caring for your baby’s skin
When a baby is born; their skin is beautiful and just perfect. That is why it is so imperative to note that their skin is also both delicate and fragile. Because of the fragility of your baby’s skin; you need to be very careful as to which products you use on his/her skin, but especially what you use to wash their clothes and accessories with . As a new parent, expect to go through endless piles of laundry. That heap continues to grow by the day. It is also very important to note that a baby’s skin is more sensitive than an adults, so the detergent that you use for your clothes should not be used on your baby’s clothes. Because of this, sensitivity skin conditions like eczema and cradle cap are very common. Levi suffered from cradle cap when he was about 2 months old. Where and how do you start? Choose a detergent that ticks off all the following:
- Gentle and baby friendly
- No enzymes
- Recyclable Bottle
- No dye
- Dermatologically tested
We have been using Sunlight Baby for a few months, and I can not recommend it enough. I did my own research and also found that Sunlight Baby is the go-to-choice for parents when it comes to Baby detergents. A 1.5 L bottle amounts to 20 washes which = to 2kg Powder. Where and when do you start? It starts right after your Baby shower.
You’ve had your Baby Shower and received a lot of baby clothing. The clothing may appear to be clean; and you always find yourself tempted to not wash it, because it might loose its perfect shape. But it is very important that you always wash baby’s clothes and bedding before they’re used. The clothing will be better for your baby once they’re washed in a mild detergent and given a few extra rinses. Also, please remember we are experiencing a Pandemic, so you have to wash everything.
Looking for the best product for your baby can be very overwhelming. With so many brands to choose from it can get confusing. As a first time parent, how do you make the right choice? Look for products that states dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. A product that include these two terms, undergoes a lot of testing to determine that the quality is suitable with qualities such as sensitive and irritant-free. Products that are classified as hypoallergenic are products that have been clinically tested and are less likely to cause allergic reactions.
Because of the delicate nature of babies skin it is best to use products that are lightly fragranced on babies’ skin. We all want our babies to smell good, but fragrance is one of the top causes of contact, or skin, allergies. Repeated exposure to a fragrance can increase the risk of fragrance allergy so it is best to avoid it. Also listen to Mothers that have tried and tested the product. Word of mouth spreads easily when it comes to a product that can deliver.
Why I love Sunlight Baby?
It ticks off all the boxes. I love that the smell is not overpowering and that it is very mild. Sometimes you get baby products with a very strong smell, you might love the smell, but the products are not good for your baby’s sensitive skin. I love that the bottle has a measuring cup, which means you use just the right amount of product with no wastage or any spills. I am also happy to say that I use it on my very delicate blouses. It is recommended that you use Baby detergent for the first year because of the sensitivity of baby’s skin, but I have no intention of stopping to use it as Levi grows older. The price! You can get a 5L at Checkers for R64.99
