New Mommies and Choosing the Best Baby Soap

13 June, 2020 Arpita Karmakar

The most rewarding and exciting experience - Parenting is equally challenging and overwhelming. Whether its breastfeeding or sleep deprivation or bathing your baby for the first time- adjusting to being a new mom is sheer hardwork and takes time and patience.

 

Getting your baby the first bath is a very fragile and intimidating task. It's important to know that a new born’s skin comes with a natural protective coating of various moisturizing oils that cover the baby's outer layer of skin. 3MEDS, the best online pharmacy in India believes that washing away that oil might leave their soft and tender skin vulnerable to irritation, dryness and rashes.

 

How to find the Right baby soap-

 

  • It must be absolutely free of toxins and harsh chemicals like parabens, SLC etc so that it doesn't irritate the baby's skin. Always look for the ingredient list at the back of the bar for proper knowledge.
  • A baby is new to the concept of bathing and so it's important to make their bathing a comfortable experience without troubling their eyes with tears. Opting for a tear free soap is a sensible choice.
  • Ingredients like milk, honey, coconut, Shea butter etc perfectly retain the moisture of baby's skin and are not harmful either. Organic soaps with such ingredients would be a better option.
  • It's nice for the bars to smell soothing but it's advisable to avoid soaps with intense fragrance as they might have chemicals infused.
  • Its always better to choose hypoallergenic soaps and sulphate free soaps in case the baby is prone to allergies.

Note:

 

Bathing a newborn can be tricky. It's not necessary to get your baby a daily bath as it may result in loss of moisture. It's advisable not to bath your baby immediately after a feed or when they are hungry. Have everything you need right next to you, a baby bathing bowl, warm water not hot, a mild chemical free baby soap, a towel etc. Check the temperature before and gently try to swish water over your baby rather than splashing. Provide your out most attention and then gently lift them out of the water and wrap them in a cloth.
