I am shocked to see so many people using Vaseline creams on their babies! Vaseline is and always was a petrolium based product! The same ingredients they use to fuel your car! Baby Oil is of the same byeproducts.
As alternatives, QV in all forms are great for young skin, Both my children have sensitive skin and QV is Great for my 3 yr olds echma. Ghoats Milk is aslo wonderful for these skin conditions.
I use olive oil or Paw paw cream for cradle cap on my 3 month old, works like a charm you only need a tiny little bit, best of all the are cheap, and they dont harm your baby!
Also recently I was told by a docter to steer clear of the more natural bathing oils, and soaps as sometimes naural products house harsh natural chemical that can damage your baby's skin.
Happy and healthy Mothering
