- My NIVEA
A newborn baby’s skin is just one-fifth as thick as an adult’s, as it is still developing. This makes it extremely delicate and means baby baths need to be very gentle to protect this sensitive skin.
It’s recommended that newborns are bathed in water only with just a few drops of baby oil. This is to make sure their natural skin barrier remains unaffected and can develop and strengthen over the coming weeks and months without having to combat infections or skin irritation.
When a baby reaches two months old, you can start using a gentle baby wash in the bath, such as NIVEA Baby Soft Shampoo & Bath for both skin and hair. Besides cleansing the skin, the special formula will also help to maintain the skin’s moisture balance.Be it cleansing or care, babies need mild products formulated specifically for their skin’s ph-value. NIVEA Baby Mild Shampoo gently soothes the scalp and hair – it’s alcohol free and has a skin-friendly pH-value, leaving your baby’s head and hair feeling clean and soft.
The wonderful thing for babies about being surrounded by warm water is that it reminds them of being in their mother’s womb. Give your baby the time to enjoy the sensation of splashing around.
