Skin Care and Clothing

skin_clothing500x500We recommend using only soap, water and Vaseline or Aquaphor in the first two weeks of life. Desitin and A&D may also be used in the diaper area. After the first two weeks of life you may use baby lotions and products made for sensitive skin.

We suggest using Dreft to launder baby clothes.  Launder new clothes prior to wear.  Avoid fabric softeners initially. Babies need only one more layer of clothes than adults. Keep your house in the 68-­‐74 degree range. An infant may have a light blanket at night.
