when can lo have lotion?

When can I start putting lotion on lo? Her skin on her hands is so dry. Her cord has came off and she is getting normal baths.

Re: when can lo have lotion?

  • asap. You can do it from day 1, I have never had any pedi or nurse tell me other wise.

  • I don't use lotion but rather i use a base oil: almond oil. I checked with the pedi regarding any allergies first and the oils are so refined there's practically nonprotein there to cause an allergy. I just dab some on cotton wool and rub it on her hands and feet. It's gotten rid of the dryness and it's gentle.

    I put lotion on our little one from day one.  He was very dry.  Never had the ped tell me I couldn't.
  • Right away, midwife just said to use unscented

  • I have never used lotion- haven't needed to! Any dry skin has cleared on it's own. However, my pedi said something natural and unscented is fine.
