What a cutie!!! I put coconut oil on my little one and he hasn't had any issues with his skin. It helps with diaper rash as well. I love coconut oil!!!😜

I live by coconut oil! It moisturizes, is natural and doesn't clog pores! Since it's also antibacterial it can kill bacteria. Buy the natural UNREFINED coconut oil as that's more for your skin needs! Refined is for cooking!

I had the same issue. Honestly just giving my LO bath every night and letting him swim for 20 minutes has cleared up most of it.

I used eczema cream. I just bought the off brand from Walmart. My daughters skin around that age was so dry and she would get little red patches. It really helped her face clear up!

Aquaphor/cetaphil and/or coconut oil. I prefer coconut oil but our pediatrician had recommended cetaphil. I just like natural remedies better. Our LO got reeaally bad dry, red bumps all over his face that seemed to start as acne. We did a few days of hydrocortisone which cleared it up right away but made his skin very thin, and now I'm just using a warm wet washcloth to clean his face and then I apply a thin layer of coconut oil.
