6 ways Baby Dove cares for baby skin

While becoming a parent can be one of the happiest times of your life, it can also be one of the most overwhelming. We know that choosing baby products can be stressful, too. But try not to worry – every parent feels the same. 

Charlie, dad of two, knows how “you can feel overwhelmed with guidance on how to parent, but it’s ultimately what works for you and the kids – as long as they’re safe and healthy”. 

So make it work your way with simple guidance and products you know you can trust. Paediatric dermatologist Dr Zilda offers this advice: “Because baby skin is thinner and more sensitive, it’s best to clean and care for it with specific products. Soap should be mild, and creams should be hypoallergenic.”

Luckily, Baby Dove has created a range of mild baby products that have been tested by parents, as well as paediatricians and dermatologists. Hopefully this will help you feel more confident in your skin care choices.

    Soothing products. 

    Because your baby’s skin is still developing and loses moisture faster than yours, it can be vulnerable to dryness and lead to baby dry skin. Our mild, hypoallergenic Rich Moisture Baby Lotion soothes and smoothes it

    Beyond mildness. 

    Ordinary wash products can be harsh on delicate baby skin, so try an alternative such as our Rich Moisture Head to Toe Wash. Its rich, creamy lather goes beyond mildness and replenishes essential nutrients often lost during bathing, keeping your baby’s skin soft

    You might be a little anxious about products getting in your baby’s eyes. If you use ophthalmologist-tested products that are also tear-free, like our Rich Moisture Baby Shampoo, your little one will be fine

    Babies' skin is delicate, so it's a good idea to keep their skin well moisturised while they sleep. Before bedtime, try applying a thin layer of Baby Dove Dermacare Moisturising Cream. It provides instant comfort, and is hypoallergenic and tested by dermatologists and paediatricians
