6 Essential steps to keep your new born moisturized
Just like you nurture your little one in your womb for 9 long months, we know you want to leave no stone unturned to nurture and nourish them post-birth as well.
Nothing feels better than scrumptious baby skin but to keep the softness intact, it is important to include certain steps and make some changes in your baby’s routine.
Keep that delicate skin petal-soft, supple, and moisturized with these essential steps:
1. Avoid exposing your baby to extreme temperatures:
Extremes of anything are bad, even temperature. Both excess cold and heat can make your baby’s silky smooth skin dry. So how can you protect your baby from the harsh winter winds or the cruel summer sun?
In winters, rely on warm clothes to bundle up your baby rather than cranking up that heater. Let the warm clothes trap moisture and prevent dryness.
Similarly, when the summer sun is concerned, make sure to avoid a long duration of exposure to the sun. If you’re going out for a stroll with your little one, cover up their body with a light yet covering clothes. This can include anything from cute hats to long; light sleeves. This will ensure that your child’s delicate skin doesn’t come in direct contact with the harmful UV rays of the sun which can lead to extreme dryness.
2. Massage the moisture in:
Massaging your child is an ancient tradition passed on by generations of mothers which nourishes not just the baby’s body but also their soul. It is an intimate way of deepening your bond with your baby while strengthening their limbs and improving their blood circulation.

3. Be careful with the baths:
Baths are an important factor to consider when looking to keep your baby’s skin moisturized. Baby baths should be short and should be done only using lukewarm water. Hot water is known to strip away the skin’s natural oils and make it dry. Thus, moderate the temperature and frequency and make your baby’s bath-time perfect and nourishing.
Another aspect of bath-time is the quality of products used, only the most nourishing new born baby products should be used for the wellness of your precious little angel.

4. Pick the right moisturizer:

You should look for products with natural ingredients at the centre and avoid any kind of chemical intervention.

5. Washing Baby Clothes:
Your baby’s skin is super sensitive and is prone to all kinds of irritants. Since their clothes come in direct contact with their skin, it is important to use gentle and baby-friendly detergents that wash out easily. Harsh chemicals present in detergents can irritate and aggravate allergies on your baby’s skin. Thus, it is essential to use only gentle new born baby products and only skin-friendly detergents for your precious baby. We at Maaté, also recommend dressing your baby in only natural fabrics, as they are light, airy, and comfortable to wear. Avoid synthetic clothes like polyester and scratchy woolens which can lead to any kind of discomfort.
6. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate:
Make sure your little one has enough liquids throughout the day and stays hydrated. Breast milk and water keep both the body and their skin cool for long and well hydrated. Give these at regular intervals to keep that beautiful little face smiling. Couple this with the top new born baby products to ensure your baby is getting their nourishment inside out!
Include these essential steps in your baby’s routine, and see their skin remain petal-soft, hydrated, and healthy.
