I am Elizabeth

This is mummy’s mothering corner


No more rashes

Posted by Everyday Healy on January 22, 2008

I realized as the weather gets hotter, babies need to bath more often. For example, baby Elizabeth get lots of rashes as she caught flu. And, it’s not because of the flu. But, it’s all because normally when she caught flu, I will skip her bath. I will just clean or swap her body with wet cloth. Once I bathe her more after she had recovered, all the rashes are gone with the wind! 😛

In short, we must always bathe our baby to keep them clean all the time. In fact, I bathe my little one twice a day. The first time is about 10 to 11 am in the morning. The next one will be around 5pm in the evening. Yet, I will still swap her whole body before she puts on her pajamas at night.

Babies tends to sweat a lot. Bathing is to cool down their body and also to wash away the sticky sweats. Bare in mind the sticky sweats may cause rashes or other skin problems.

On the other hand, we must be careful with those body shop supplies. Certain body wash or soaps that are too acidic are not suitable for babies. Thus, I am still using organic soap free baby wash.
