Baby creams and lotions

edited July 2016 in Baby Care
The newest thing seems to be not to use any soaps or creams on your baby. I am not sure I agree with that. My midwife told me only to use a bit of baby oil in the bath if the skin gets dry and nothing else. I do use baby shampoo and baby body lotion after the bath because oil will make my babies hair all greasy and his skin a bit dry.

What do you think? Do you use shampoo and lotions? Have you been told only to use oil as well?



  • Yes, I stick with using oil, like sesame or coconut on baby's skin. I was also told you can do a tea bath or infused bath with chamomile tea to soothe the skin. You can also put in lavender and put oil into the bath water.
