newborn skincare

Here are some of the things you should keep in mind Peeling skin: This is normal in babies born past their due date, and clears up in a couple of weeks. Baby Acne: Pimples usually disappear within a few weeks, and are known to be caused due to yeast. No treatment is needed. Eczema: An itchy rash may appear on the face or body, in response to a trigger, and is common in children who have a family history of asthma, allergies, or atopic dermatitis. Use a mild soap and apply moderate amounts of moisturizers. More severe eczema may need medical intervention.

editor’s note

When I first started weaning my toddler, I was full of rules: 1 Start weaning not a day before or after the 6-month mark. 2 No sugar and salt. 3 Begin with only homemade and fresh vegetable and fruit purees. 4 Feeding on high chairs only. 5 No distraction while eating. 6 Definitely no screen time. Four days in, and I was ready to throw in the serviette! My child's refused to eat any of the carrot, beetroot or apple purees, and even rejected khichdi! Alarm bells started ringing, and I started playing various scenarios in my head. Is his tongue reflex still active? Does he have sensory issues?

I began to enjoy my pregnancy because of your informative articles, and I knew what to anticipate once Naina arrived. So thank you for being there for me when I needed…
