Sounds tempting! Yes, being a mother you may get attracted to the exciting range of baby cosmetics available in the market. However, don’t just go ahead and grab these. Give it some thought.

What’s available in the market?

  • Baby soaps and shampoos
  • Baby lotions
  • Diaper rash ointments
  • Baby massage oils
  • Baby powder
  • Baby perfumes

To avoid any unpleasant reactions in your baby, make sure you keep unnecessary baby cosmetics away. Also, store the cosmetics that you use in a different place so that your baby cannot reach them.

Precautions to be Followed While Choosing Cosmetics for your Baby

  • Read labels carefully before choosing any product for your baby. Avoid products that contain dyes or fragrances.
  • Buy products that are phthalates-free. Phthalates are chemicals used in the manufacturing of plastic toys and various cosmetics. Phthalates are associated with toxic effects on developing organs.
  • Before using any new cosmetic, apply a small amount of the product behind your baby’s ears or on the ankle to check for allergic reactions.
  • If your baby has dry skin, applying baby lotions may help. However, always consult your doctor before doing so.

Choosing your baby’s cosmetics is a delicate matter indeed. It is best to consult a doctor before selecting cosmetics for your baby.
