My son seems to have sensitive skin just on his face. I have not found any lotions that do not break him out. Not a problem until now. Now that the sun is out so much I have been putting sunblock on him, but of course it is breaking him out really bad. He is 4 months old and I have been using Baby Blanket. Does anyone know of something better that may work for his face?

try Method and Burt's Bees both are at Target and have lotion. soaps, and sun block. My son also has sensitive skin and these are all natural products that shouldn't break him out!

my daughter gets a rash after her bath from our hard water and some lotions. her doctor reccomended eucerin cream lotion. its the consistency of Crisco but it has helped a lot with her dry skin and the rash

I was told by my doc never to put anything on their skin as far as sunblick goes until they are older than 6 months... I was told the best was Ombrelle for babies. I have majorly sensitive skin and this is one of the only one that doesn't bother my skin.

I would definitely talk to your doctor about it though because sometimes skin issues are a sign of allergies, maybe even to something you are wearing or eating and then he breaks out when touching him. Goodluck I hope I helped!

Both my kids have sensitive skin. I use free and clear laundry detergent and NO lotions at all. My DR told me using lotion on sensitive skin can just worsen the issue. So I say just wash his face with a warm wash cloth every day and see if time helps. It did for my kids

Aveeno is a very good moisturiser. I use it on my son who has extremewly bad eczema. Its the only cream I can use as he is allergic to all the noprmal stuff like e45

It may be the sunblock( sunblock have harsh chemicals is them) you could try a different type . also try lotions for Eczema as they are very gentle for babys with sensitive skin .

There is a couple of new products out.. Neutrogena, Aveno... Aveno is supposed to be all natural ingredients, I would try it out

I am not sure about sun block but for his skin it might work if you get oil of oley (sp?) for sensitive skin as a lotion. My mom said that is what the doctors told her to use for me as a newborn. Of course you will want to run that by your doctor first. That is the only thing I can think of. Hope it works for you if you try it!
