At the moment there are a lot of all kinds of cosmetic products for the baby, without which supposedly it is impossible to provide him with the right care.
Various creams for the body, face, under the diaper, moisturizing, nourishing, anti-allergic. In such an amount just fit to get confused.
I admit, I also went on about advertising.
Now I explain this by saying that when you wait for the first baby, you want to do everything as well as possible. But what about doing without the creams? Yes, it is simply impossible! And now, armed with various means, I began to terrorize my baby.
And it turned out to be an amazing thing! The daughter did not want to confirm the appeals of advertising slogans. Her skin stubbornly did not want to become soft and tender, on the contrary, she began to become covered with some kind of red spots. From shampoo Without tears, the baby sobbed bitterly, and her hair, instead of becoming silky, began to resemble straw.
I was terrified: what’s going on with such a small tot? Then a wonderful idea came to my mind: for a time, abandon all these miracle remedies and try to wash the child with plain water with baby soap, and not smear the body with creams. Well, unless, if necessary, and that, not creams of well-known companies, but an ordinary children’s cream.
The shampoo was also decided to put aside. And the miracle happened! Her daughter’s skin became perfect, her hair was soft and silky, and all the irritations disappeared. But this whole experiment could not be.
I remember that during my pregnancy I called a friend who had a 1 year old baby, and asked what kind of cosmetics she buys for him. Her answer horrified me! None! Only baby bath soap and pharmaceutical cream in case of diaper rash, which, by the way, they had a very rare occurrence.
Then, under the influence of advertising, I thought that she was a bad mother, saving on a child. And only having tried all the cosmetics on my baby, I realized that she perfectly takes care of her toddler.
Therefore, no matter how much you would like to succumb to provocations, it is better to stop yourself in time. Various cosmetics only clog the baby’s skin, not allowing her to breathe. The less chemicals that affect the baby, the better.
For a baby it will be quite enough to buy:
1. Baby soap for washing the body and even hair. So, for the first six months, I used to wash my head with my daughter 1-2 times a week, and my hair was gorgeous! Only by the end of the first year of life I bought her a shampoo.
2. Children’s cream. It can be used if the skin of a child is rather dry.
3. Cream Bepanten. It perfectly helps to cope with irritation on the skin. It was enough for us once to anoint the reddened place on the skin, and the next day everything passed.
