How can I treat my baby’s dry skin?

Postnatal, Your questions

My baby was born in the fall and has very dry skin. He is one month old. How can I improve the situation?

Thanks in advance, Lili-Jade


Newborns will often have dry skin for a few weeks after childbirth because they are no longer in their pool, where they were constantly hydrated. After their daily bath, I recommend massaging them with a hydrating cream all over their body. The situation should quickly improve. You can also apply cream during the day to zones that are often drier, such as joints, ankles and wrists. Add a bit of baby oil to their bath water, as it can help too!
