The Bubbly Best Washes and Shampoos for Babies With Sensitive Skin!
Quote From Common Baby Skin Conditions
"Babies may get acne from hormones they get from their mother either from breast feeding or after being in her womb they still have some of her hormones in their system. It is not life threatening at all and it won't hurt your baby. Do NOT try to pop the blemishes. This will hurt your baby and could permanently scar them."
Common Baby Skin Conditions
Hormonal pregnant women and teens aren't the only ones with acne. Babies get acne too. Babies can also get rashes or eczema. Babies are prone to skin conditions just as any adult is! It's perfectly normal and shouldn't concern you too much if it's just a mild break out or rash. It's easily treatable if it's a mild case. Obviously if your baby has oozy hives or a full body rash call your doctor immediately or go straight to your nearest hospital or clinic as they could be suffering from an extreme allergic reaction.
- Baby Acne
Baby acne looks similar to acne in adults only a little smaller. Babies may get acne from hormones they get from their mother either from breast feeding or after being in her womb they still have some of her hormones in their system. It is not life threatening at all and it won't hurt your baby. Do NOT try to pop the blemishes. This will hurt your baby and could permanently scar them. The best way to care for it is use a fragrance free baby wash on it daily and make sure you use a soft washcloth to dry the area after washing. It will take time to go away, so don't fret about it if it takes time to go away. Talk to your doctor about it at a well child exam if it stays for longer than a month or two.
- Baby Eczema
This is a scaly, red, and itchy rash on your baby's skin. Care for the area by having your baby bathe every other day with a gentle wash. Make sure to gently dry them off after every bath. Put fragrance free lotion over the area. Talk to your doctor if it remains severe.
- Diaper Rash
This is a red rash on your baby's bottom from having a dirty diaper on for too long. Change your baby whenever they need to be changed. Diaper rash is painful to them, so don't slack off on changing their diaper. To treat the diaper rash let your baby spend some time without a diaper on-perhaps set them on a towel- after they take a bath so their bottom can get some fresh air. Apply a diaper rash creme to their diaper rash after that and a clean diaper and keep their diapers fresh as possible.
This is white bumps on baby's face right after they are born. Wash the area daily, and don't be concerned about it- it will go away on it's own once you're baby gets older.

Bubbly Best Products For The Sensitive Skin Baby In Your Life!
- Aveeno Soothing Relief Baby Wash
I love, love, LOVE this baby wash! Make sure you pick up the fragrance free one. It's very gentle and mild! I started using this for my baby after she started breaking out from Johnson's honey apple baby wash and her breakouts went away right away! Smells really nice without any added scents to it.
- Aveeno Baby Cleansing Eczema Wash
This is great if your baby has eczema. It's clinically proven to work well with sensitive baby skin. Even if your baby doesn't have eczema and is suffering from a bad rash it would be smart to try this wash to see if there's any improvement in your baby's rash.
- Aveeno Baby Wash and Shampoo
This wash is lightly scented but it is very gentle and leaves your baby's skin super soft and healthy! If you're baby has an extreme rash I wouldn't recommend this though as it does have a light scent.
- Johnson's Fragrance Free Baby Wash
I don't care for the Johnson's scented baby washes, since my baby had a horrible reaction to the honey apple one, but the fragrance free Johnson's wash is very gentle and mild on my baby's skin. Despite not having any added scents it still has a nice smell to it!
