Adult skin vs. baby skin
Babies sweat less, which means she has trouble regulating her temperature, so make sure you keep her out of extreme temperatures.
Because your baby has a higher lipid count, more icky germs can get through her skin, making it easier to get an infection. Change her diaper often and remember the DESITIN!
A baby’s skin is not fully prepared to defend itself, plus she has a lowered immune system, making her more open to infection. Monitor her skin and any red patches.
The protectant layer of a baby’s skin is less developed, so irritants get absorbed easier - plus she has a harder time with friction. Change her diaper often and don’t be shy with the DESITIN.
And don’t forget to tickle those little, big feet.
