In the midst of winter the chilly temperatures can get you down, but so can dry skin. We adults are not the only ones that suffer though! So do our little ones. Today I have a few helpful tips for you to keep that little skin soft! First and foremost: stay hydrated! Drinking lots of water is most important factor in giving your body the moisture it needs. A good way to do this is to keep a water bottle nearby for your child to take sips out of throughout the day.
Our bodies are made of up 70% water, so make sure your little one stays hydrated so their skin doesn’t dry out! Skip Hop Zoo water bottles are a great way to do that!

I know it sounds weird but bathing your little ones too often can strip their body of natural/nourishing oils. When you do wash your baby try to use natural products since preservatives also strip your body of its natural oils. Tubby Todd Hair and Body Wash is one of my favorite products for washing sensitive skin. And make sure to lotion up on a regular basis to keep that skin moisturized with Tubby Todd Lavender and Rosemary Lotion.
Daily baths can dry out baby's skin. If they need to be washed off, think about maybe just letting them soak in some plain water. If they need to be washed, use all natural products like Tubby Todd
When things get out of hand and your need extreme treatment the best option is Tubby Todd Dream Cream. The dream cream is similar to their lotion but concentrated so it can heal those chronically dry areas.
Humidifiers are like little angel buckets during the winter – they literally fight off stuffy noses and congestion by making sure that all that warm, dry air doesn’t take over your lungs!
Another way to moisturize you skin is simple to put more moisture in the air. Try putting a humidifier in the baby's room or in other areas of the home that you spend most of your time. This can also make it easier and more comfortable to breathe. Most of all, just remember that even if your baby does get dry skin during the winter it does NOT make you a bad parent. Dry skin happens to everyone, even when you are doing everything you possibly can to prevent it. If the dry skin gets really out of hand consult your doctor right away and see if they have any other tips!
