What kind of lotion do you use on your little ones?

[deleted account] ( 25 moms have responded )

We still use Johnson's Baby Lotion but with the weather getting colder, I feel like I am putting lotion on my almost 18 month old's cheeks at least 3-4 times a day. If I don't her cheeks get bright red and chapped looking. Does anyone use something else that works during the colder months? Thanks!

My little one is super allergic to any kind of lotions, the only things she's fine with are pure olive oil and Aveeno. Aveeno is fine I guess but not that moisturizing. There is another brand you can try, it's the only thing I've used on my baby and hasn't caused any allergies: Aeolo. It's all natural. But it's a little pricey. You can order samples first.

We use the Fragrance Free Aveeno for daily use or if it gets bad, we use Eucerin, which was recommended to us by the pediatrician.

I had the same problem. Try sunscreen! When my oldest was a baby his cheeks got so windburned and bad and no lotion I tried seemed to work. I started applying sunscreen to his face on cold days and it worked like a charm and believe it or not they recommend wearing it in the winter as well anyways. Obviously they don't need it on their whole body for the winter so for the rest of the body I love Aveeno Baby or Eucerin if you little one has sensitive skin. But for the cheeks and face, nothing worked better for me than sunscreen. Good luck!

I put lotion on my son's body then I put this badger baby balm on his cheeks, it has organic extra virgin olive oil, castor oil, beeswax, calendula extract, and essential oil of chamomile. You can find it at health food stores.

Aquaphor for the cheeks, nose, chin area during the cold weather works great. Even when you don't see pink, it works as a protectant so they don't get chapped.

Burt's Bees Baby Bee lotion - LOVE it! And they have this little chapstick-like stuff for chapped cheeks (I forget what it's called) that works great.

Cetaphil isn't marketed as a baby lotion but since its dye and perfume free its extra genital and moisturizes really well.

There are a lot of so called Wind and Wetter Cremes, right now I am using one of Sanosan but Mustella and Chicco are also very good, I recommend it warmly!

I use Arbonne's all natural baby line - it is excellent for dry skin and many pediatricians carry it because the Body Lotion and Body Oil are so effective for eczema. I give these products to all my friends with babies and they love them too! The fact that these baby products do not contain parabens (which have been linked to cancer) made me feel great about using them on my son who is now 18 months old. Just a word of caution from someone who bought the Aveeno natural line too before I discovered Arbonne - I got home and saw they contained polyparaben and methylparaben and returned them! I loved the Arbonne products so much, the company's philosophy, and its flagship anti-aging line that I started my own Arbonne business 9 months ago and am now an Area Manager. It's a very lucrative way to make extra money on the side or a FT salary. Feel free to contact me if you want more info on how to get these products at a discount or the business. Take care, Amy (website: amyn.myarbonne.com/ email: amyn@myarbonne.com)

I recommend trying Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. Its for dry, sensitive skin. Its a little pricey (about $7 or $8 for a three oz. tube) but you only need an itty bitty bit. It really works wonders!

After almost $100 worth of lotion purchases, nothing works like AVEENO! I only have to apply it once/day. They even have one with menthol for itchy skin. I use it all the time on my 18 month old. Even on her face.

Aveeno Cream works really well. My son gets eczema patches and the Aveeno keeps it under control. Cream works better than lotion.

I use Aquaphor for my daughter. She was in NICU for a few months after she was born & the nurses there used it for rashes, abrasions & excema. Its a thick, gentle, unscented cream that won't irritate cracked little skin. You can get it in any pharmacy in the lotions aisle. Good luck :)

I use vasoline creamy after every bath, and regular baby lotion in between. For my daughters face I use Mary Kay extra emollient night cream. It is the most awesome stuff ever. You could also use a dab of lanolin on the face before you go outside that might help.

I use aveeno on my children's skin usually, but I will put Aquaphor on their little cheeks and noses to keep them from getting chapped.

I use lotion that is a little more gentle on my son's skin. I know Johnson's lotion is supposed to be safe, but it actually has a lot of ingredients that aren't safe, even for adults. So, I now use Shaklee's Soothing Lotion. It has 87% organic ingredients and no harmful ingredients. It also smells good because they use organic essential oils like lavendar and chamomile. We really enjoy it! If you want to know where to get it, you can go here: www.caranitz.myshaklee.com

Thanks ladies! I'll try the baby oil first since we got that in a Johnson's kit before she was born. If that doesn't work I'll try the other lotion.
