Aquaphor Baby: From the First Bath On
Let’s face it: There are very few things in the world that are both as exciting and stressful as bringing home your newborn from the hospital. Even though I had already “been there done that” with Jonah, when we brought Oliver home from the hospital, I still had that feeling that all new moms get that first week at home… terror, joy, exhaustion, and concern… Am I doing this right? Is he okay? Is he hungry? From feeding to sleeping and to everything in between, there is so much information out there it’s hard to know what to trust let alone find the time and energy to decipher all of it! One brand I know I can turn to without having to get the opinion of 24,000 other mommies on social media sites is Aquaphor. Aquaphor has been a go-to in our house for bothAboys since day 1. We are a house full of people (young and old) with sensitive skin and have to be very careful with what we bath in and use for lotion. I’ve always loved how mild the Aquaphor Baby Wash & Shampoo is. The wash gently cleanses baby’s skin and hair without drying it out. Enriched with soothing chamomile and provitamin B5, it is specially developed and clinically proven to be mild enough for baby’s sensitive skin.
Whenever I take my boys to the pediatrician and mention something skin related, without fail the doctor always recommends: Aquaphor. Seriously! To this day, I still have a tub of the Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment next to Jonah’s bed. Especially when the weather cools down and winds pick up, it helps protects dry, Arritated skin which helps enhance the natural healing process. For the baby, it also can be used to soothe and protect minor cuts, scrapes, burns and dry, irritated baby skin e.g. drool rash.
Speaking of rash, at some point, every baby gets diaper rash. I keep saying to Peter if we ever have a 3rd child, I really hope I figure more things out about babies– like diaper rash and what. causes. it. I swear, Oliver sometimes just gets it out of nowhere. The Aquaphor Baby Diaper Rash Cream works really quickly and acts as a barrier cream to protect babies’ delicate skin. The small diaper rash tubes are perfect for the diaper bag! I also always keep a squeezable tube of the Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment in my diaper bag… After all that diaper changing and hand washing, my hands get so dry, so I love to use it as a hand salve.
Partnering up with a brand like Aquaphor is a no brainer for a new/old mom like me. For more information on Aquaphor Baby, click HERE.
