Do your research
Before buying new born baby products, it’s imperative to do your research and find out what exactly is in those products. Always look for gentle, proven ingredients that don’t have a question mark over them in terms of suitability for caring for your baby’s fragile skin. More and more parents are choosing natural new born baby products for their ability to safely care for delicate new skin without the use of synthetics or irritants. All products at Maaté are thus consciously formulated using the purest ingredients nature has to offer.

Reduce the frequency of baby baths
New born babies don’t get too messy, and thus giving them even three baths a week is more than enough. On the in-between days, a little top and tail clean with a warm washcloth or cotton balls is all that’s required to keep your little baby clean and comfortable. A soft organic washcloth with one small pump of your favorite natural baby wash is all that’s needed to gently cleanse your little bud’s skin.

When looking for new born baby products for your baby’s bath time, always go for a gentle chemical-free wash like Maaté’s baby body wash. This organic cleanser made with the goodness of neem leaves and oats extracts won’t strip your baby’s delicate skin of naturally occurring oils that help keep it supple and healthy.

Hydrate enough
Keeping your baby’s precious skin well moisturized is the first step in keeping dry skin and eczema at bay. When it comes to highly recommended new born baby products, Maaté’s baby body butter is an extremely hydrating body lotion. Apply it every day after bath time and lock your baby’s essential moisture back in their skin.

Every little body is different and what works for some babies may not work for others. However, using a 100% natural and gentle baby moisturizer with no harsh fragrances is your best bet to avoid a reaction.

To choose the right new born baby products, always look for baby moisturizers that do not use water (aqua) as its main ingredient. Water has no benefit when topically applied and can actually be drying to delicate and sensitive skin. Instead go for a gentle baby cream with Kokum butter as its base ingredient like Maaté’s baby body butter. This is extra-soothing, hydrating and revitalizing for your baby’s super-kissable skin!
