What I Use On Baby Girl's Sensitive Skin





I've always had really sensitive skin and knew we would have to watch out for baby girl. Within her first week of being born the skin on her body was super dry, she was shedding skin like no tomorrow, she had broken out in baby acne, the skin on her face was really tough and she would get red blotches when we used products that didn't agree with her.  We had to be really careful with what we used on her.


Most of the standard baby products in the aisle of  our local supermarket were not suitable and it took us awhile to find the right products that were as natural as possible but still served their purpose. I had to do a lot of research and got lots of recommendations so I thought I'd share what really works for us.



WaterWipes - Pack of 4 - £8.99 from Boots
These are the only wipes approved by Allergy UK and are 99.9% water. I like to use wipes all over the body, especially now that she's eating solids and getting very messy. I especially don't take any risks with what I put on baby girls face with and these wipes are just like using water and cotton - just a lot more convenient.
















Oilatum Junior Bath Additive £9.19 from Boots
This is a bath additive used instead of bubble bath. It makes the bath milky and acts as a cleanser and a moisturiser so you don't need soap. It's great for dry skin.


ZeroAqs - on prescription through NHS
As well as the Oilatum in the bath, we use this as a substitute for soap. It's an emollient cream which basically keeps the skin well moisturised but not greasy. This softens baby girls skin and is known to help other ointments and oils to be absorbed into the skin. This was prescribed by our local doctor.
















Mustela Foam Baby Shampoo £9.99 from Amazon 
Baby girl also suffered really badly with cradle cap and within a few weeks of using this shampoo completely cleared it up. The shampoo is self foaming which makes it super easy to apply and doesn't get in baby girls eyes. Its 99% of natural origin and it leaves baby girls hair smelling delicious.


Optima Raw Organic Coconut Oil £8.29 from Amazon
When she comes out of the bath I use this all over baby girl instead of any other baby oils or moisturisers. It goes all over her body and face and even some in her hair. It keeps her skin very moisturised and we have managed to avoid any eczema which I suffered from really badly as a baby. The best thing is she smells delicious all day. When I'm tired enough I can nearly see an oasis of a tropical beach....


Vaseline £2.15 for 100g from Boots
BG was quite a sicky newborn so it was really hard to keep her chin dry all the time. It still is because she is constantly dribbling. Her face really reacts to wetness so when its really bad we use Vaseline as a barrier cream to avoid any red welts.

  5. Those mainstream Baby Bijorns are horrible for the baby's hip alignment and get uncomfortable as soon as the baby puts on decent weight. Ann Royston
