A baby’s skin needs gentle and careful care as their skin flora and microbiome, formed of trillions of microbes, need to develop from birth to help support their immune system to fight off infections.
As midwives we recommend bathing newborns infrequently because their skin flora and microbiome (which help their skin and bodies develop resistance when transitioning from growing inside the womb to living in the outside world) needs to develop and regular bathing, especially with heavily fragranced products can cause disruption to its development. However, we do appreciate that in those early days and weeks a bath may be the only solution to a poo explosion or sick up after feeding. You can support your baby’s skin by using gentle products, without fragrance and plenty of skin-to-skin contact to populate your baby’s skin flora and help develop their microbiome, which in turn helps them to develop a more robust immune system.

Learn how to expertly care for your baby's skin
Our skin provides protection to our whole bodies to stop harmful bacteria, allergens and chemicals entering, as well as helping regulate our water balance and temperature. As with other organs in the body a baby’s skin is immature and needs gentle and careful treatment to develop. The skin of a baby is approximately 30% thinner than that of an adult, even thinner in those babies born prematurely, until they are about 2 years old. Babies also lose moisture from their skin more easily, have lower levels of natural moisturising factors and so their skin is more prone to damage, dryness and infections.

Skin-to-skin contact is when your skin and your baby’s skin are in direct contact. Skin-to-skin contact benefits both you and your baby, not just following the birth, but for weeks and months afterwards by:
• Promoting bonding and communication between you and your baby • Regulating your baby’s temperature. Think of it like a thermostat – neither too hot nor too cold. • Baby picks up your healthy skin flora to populate their own skin with bacteria, which then helps to develop their gut microbiome • Helps to calm and settle baby
For the first few days after birth, it is recommended that you only do minimal cleansing of the face and bottom area(top and tail). This encourages development of skin flora and the microbiome which in turn helps to develop the baby’s gut microbiome. In the first few weeks, bath a maximum of 2-3 times per week or when visibly dirty as this helps to protect skin flora and reduce drying their skin. After a bath, you can put baby in skin-to-skin with you or your partner for a few minutes to help re-establish baby’s healthy skin flora, then use the moisturiser on baby to help maintain skin hydration.
Any product which contains water must contain ingredients which make them safe and stable over time and in different temperature and light conditions. If these aren’t included bacteria could form. These are called preservatives. Only preservatives that undergo rigorous testing are considered safe for use in cosmetic products and currently none of these are natural. We have used the gentlest preservatives which are Ecocert approved.
