Simply so, how often should I put lotion on my newborn?
Moisturize. A moisturizer may not be necessaryforbabies with normal skin, though most experts still recommendusingit every day. Opt for one without fragrances or dyes. Ifyourbaby's skin is super-dry, moisturize twice daily orevenafter every diaper change.
Similarly, what can I put on newborn dry skin? You can use a baby moisturiser,medicalemollient cream or lotion after the bath, if you wish.This"soak-and-seal" approach is particularly recommended fordryskin conditions. Applying an emollient cream all overyourbaby's body as often as needed may also prevent herdryskin developing into eczema.
Also to know, when should I start massaging my newborn?
Try to pick a time when your baby isbetweenfeeds. Then she won't be too hungry or too full. It's alsobest notto start just before her nap. A good time tomassageyour baby is when she is awake, butsettled.
When can a newborn go out?
But it's best to avoid large, crowded, enclosedplaceswith poor ventilation (like the mall) until your baby is 6 to8weeks, which limits her exposure to airborne germs that couldbedangerous for her immature immune system.
