Itchy eczema can cause sleep loss. When eczema itches, it can keep your baby awake.

 Sleep loss occurs when eczema flares. Getting your baby’s eczema under control can help your baby sleep.

Atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) is a common skin condition in babies. It affects up to 25% of children, and an estimated 60% of people with eczema develop it during their first year of life. While there is no cure, most cases can be controlled with a customized skin care plan.

How to Maintain your Baby’s Eczema Prone Skin Health: 

Let’s start off with some basic guidelines:

• Make sure to keep their skin generally dry and clean
• Purchase high-absorbing diapers and change them every 3 hours
• Try to air out the diaper area as much as possible
• Gently cleanse the intimate areas and try to avoid overly rubbing the skin
• Gently pat-dry the baby’s skin after bathing
• Avoid diapers or pants that are too tight
• Dry to reduce the baby’s sun exposure for the first 6 months of life
• Use a fragrance-free bath gel, enriched with natural plant extracts to balance the microbiome, that leaves the skin hydrated and calm.
• Apply a therapeutic moisturizer designed to improve eczema symptoms and to restore the natural skin barrier.

What causes your baby’s skin to become sensitive?

The skin is made up of three layers: The outer layer (epidermis), the inner thicker layer made out of connective tissue (dermis), and the below that the fat layer (hypodermis).

Thinner Skin Layers 

An infant’s skin layers (the dermis and epidermis) are extremely thin, and as a result, the fat and moisture level in the body is lower. That is why it tends to dry out and crack faster. 

Melatonin production (whose function is to protect the body from radiation) is much lower in infants which is even more prevalent considering their thinner skin layers. 

Reduced Melatonin Production

Melatonin production (whose function is to protect the body from radiation) is much lower in infants which is even more prevalent considering their thinner skin layers.

High PH Levels 

An infant’s PH levels are higher relative to adults. This can weaken the infant’s natural skin barrier making them more susceptible to skin infiltration. The microbiome that protects the skin is unbalanced providing a fertile environment for the production of bad bacteria that can damage the baby’s delicate skin.

These reasons make the baby’s skin more vulnerable to breakage, blisters, and various negative reactions following contact with harmful substances. The baby can then become prone to infections, dehydration, and burns.

Making Sure Your Baby’s Skin Stays Moisturized Maintains their Overall Health

The moisture level in the baby’s skin has a significant effect on preventing skin damage, developing rashes & outbreaks, and other skin diseases such as Atopic Dermatitis (skin asthma). The outermost layer of the skin (the skin barrier) is made up of ceramides, fatty acids, and cholesterol. Its job is to prevent the entry of pollutants, and allergens and halt the escape of essential substances. In addition, it is responsible for preventing epidermal water loss. A normal level of skin moisture prevents the penetration of bacteria and other pollutants. 

Protecting Your Baby’s Skin While Bathing

Treatment of the skin begins with the first bath. When a baby is born, they are wrapped in a layer of wax called the vernix whose function is to maintain the health of the skin and contribute to immune system activity. The World Health Organization recommends delaying a baby’s first bath by at least 24 hours, and even 48 hours if possible. The first bath should take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes in warm water. In addition, a prolonged stay in soapy water should be avoided. 

Which Shower Gel is Recommend for Bathing? 

To preserve and maintains the baby’s skin health, a fragrance-free, paraben-free shower gel with no artificial coloring should be used. We recommend our ECZEMA THERAPY WASH suitable for newborns, is free of all the harmful ingredients previously mentioned, is enriched with plant extracts that help strengthen the microbiome, soothes itching and redness, and is pact with ingredients that enriches the skin with moisture. 

Massaging the Baby’s Skin 

There are a lot of benefits to massaging the baby’s skin. The touch itself is a wonderful way to express love and affection. A gentle massage helps to soothe the baby’s skin, reducing restlessness and crying. Science has shown us that soft touch stimulates the baby’s hormones, increases immunity, and helps the baby fight potential diseases. Massaging with a suitable lotion can help maintain the protective layer of the skin. 

Choosing the Right Moisturizer for Your Baby

You should be on the lookout for ingredients like ceramides, glycerin, and shea butter for dry to extremely dry skin. In addition, these ingredients help build the outer layer of the skin that protects against epidermal water loss, restores the lost moisture, and prevents future dryness. We recommend our ECZEMA THERAPY CREAM – our therapeutic body moisture contains all the previously mentioned ingredients and is enriched by our patented compounds of herbs. The cream soothes the skin, reduces redness & irritation, and the development of eczema. It strengthens the skin barrier and is intended for babies who suffer from particularly dry skin or atopic inflammation ages 6 months and above.

The cream is clinically proven to improve Baby's sleep quality in 7 days.
