A little newborn sits in my arms. She’s beautiful. She’s perfect. I love her. What I don’t love, is the newborn dry skin that is plaguing her little feet and hands. I asked her pediatrician at our 2 week visit what I should do. She explained that although her skin looked uncomfortable, it bothered my eyes far more than it bothered the baby. I didn’t need to do anything but could use a fragrant free baby ointment if I felt I must. Aquaphor to the rescue!
This ointment had been part of the diaper rash solution of my now 4 ½ year old (recommended then by the pediatrician) so it was something that had the doctor’s approval!
