Tackling Motherhood While Properly Caring for a Baby’s Sensitive Skin

I’ve partnered with Baby Dove to share this important information about caring for your baby’s skin. While this post is sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are as always, solely my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support AngelaRicardo.com

Welcoming our son Josiah King brought our family full circle. It is truly blissful. The days got longer and the nights were shorter, with a few sleepless nights here and there, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything else. But just like any other parents, we faced quite a few setbacks. One of those is properly caring for a newborn’s sensitive skin. If you’re wondering how or simply feel that bathing your baby is quite daunting (which is NORMAL), then this post is definitely for you!

First things first, you need to know that it’s okay to feel intimidated. Every new mom and dad goes through this stage. After all, the primary goal is to provide the best care possible for your precious bundle of joy, so it makes sense to wonder if you’re doing it right. Next is to understand your baby’s skin so you can adjust accordingly. Ready? Then let’s begin…

FACT #1 – Babies are born with sensitive skin
FACT #2 – Weather and changing seasons can affect a baby’s skin
FACT #3 – Your baby’s skincare routine and skincare products can have a MAJOR effect on their delicate skin

Since Josiah was born in early November, his pediatrician recommended to bathe him 2-3 times a week. That’s because a baby’s skin loses moisture 5x faster than an adult’s! Crazy right? Which also brings us to the point of how important it is to have the right products. For us, there’s only ONE superior choice – Baby Dove.

We don’t have to worry about the ingredients used in Baby Dove products, because their cleansers, as well as lotions, are made with 100% skin-natural nutrients that go BEYOND mildness to replenish essential moisture. They are also dermatologist and pediatrician tested and carefully made with no dyes, no parabens, and no phthalates.

Now that it is spring season and Josiah is a little older, we’re taking him outdoors more so he can start exploring the world around him. His little adventures also mean more frequent baths. Since he is now 5 months old, we have been bathing him every night as part of his nightly routine – and he LOVES it!

Josiah’s Skin Care Routine

STEP #1 – One thing all babies have in common is that they pee, poopie, and sweat! To clean up any impurities, we use Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Tip to Toe Wash. Its gentle cleansers minimize damage while replenishing skin lipids to keep baby’s sensitive skin nourished and healthy.

We make Josiah’s bath time extra special by singing nursery songs and rhymes. He also has a rubber ducky that keeps his hands and eyes busy. My husband and I absolutely love the fact that Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Tip to Toe Wash is Hypoallergenic (suitable for all skin types), Fragrance-free, and Tear-free which is a BIG PLUS!!!

STEP #2 – Right after his bath, he gets bundled up in fluffy towels that he enjoys pulling and tugging. Since his skin tends to get very dry and ashy, we use Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Baby Lotion to help his skin stay moisturized all day. Aside from being gentle, it also soothes dry skin from FIRST use!

Instead of just applying and rushing to put on his diaper and jammies, we take this opportunity to give him some massages. It’s the perfect bonding time for us.

STEP #3 – When it comes to keeping him clean throughout the day, and in between diaper changes, we use Baby Dove Sensitive Moisture Baby Wipes. These wipes are as gentle as water and effectively remove ALL impurities while INSTANTLY moisturizing his skin.

MAJOR TIP: Then we coat his bum with petroleum jelly generously to lock away the wetness and keep his bottom from getting soaked. Doing so helps prevent irritation and rashes. Basing on our personal experience, this works like a charm as he never had any rash at all!

By following these steps, you can guarantee to keep your precious little one’s skin fresh, clean, and healthy!

Nurturing and caring for your little one doesn’t have to be intimidating or downright scary. There’s NO PERFECT WAY to care for your baby. The best way is “YOUR” way. When it comes to caring for their skin, however, there’s a SUPERIOR way to do so, and that is with Baby Dove.

    Well isn’t he just the sweetest?! Ive used baby dove with all three of my girls!

  • Gladys parker

    Awesome post! When my children were little there were only two choices for baby soap. The rest of the family used Dove. I would have used Dove but, it just didn’t say for babies. At around one I switched to their own Dove bar. I am so happy any future grandchildren can have Baby Dove!

  • Pat

    Baby Dove soap sounds like a good choice, and thanks for all the tips about bathing a baby.

  • Adriana

    I swear by this stuff. I use it on my little man all the time

    Dove baby products are simply awesome. I love them very much. Thanks for sharing the tips.

  • Caroline higgs

    As a fellow mom who has my own six month old bouncing baby boy, sensitive skin has posed a real challenge (especially this past winter). We will definitely have to give the Baby Dove line a try!

    I have been using Dove for my own skin for years. My skin is sensitive and it’s the only brand that doesn’t irritate me.

    Glad to learn that Dove now has the baby version. Should be mild to baby skin. Oh the baby look so comfortable and enjoying his bath!

  • Czjai Reyes-Ocampo

    I love that Dove finally came out with a line for babies. My son uses the regular Dove soap now, (he is already 9 years old after all), but we’re now using the Dove baby wipes and we love how it’s soft and very much suitable for sensitive skin.
