Babies’ skin is very sensitive as it has a very thin hydrolipic layer that causes irritation and easy drying. Since your immune system is also underdeveloped, the risk of infection increases. It is important that when we clean the different areas of the baby we take into account that only the brands specific to them take into account the factors mentioned above.
Baby hygiene is something very important so I’ve brought a tutorial here to take into account:
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
- Wet wipes
How are you going to proceed?
- When cleaning girls, it is very important that we do this from the vulva to the anus so that the germs stored there do not get into the vaginal area.
- If you clean children over 20 days, you need to clean the skin under the foreskin very gently. Bath time is ideal for gently lowering the foreskin and cleaning it under it.
- It should be noted that before inserting any products such as powders, creams and others, you should consult your pediatrician first.
- To avoid irritation, a useful tip is to switch babies and leave them diapered a little with each change.
