You've probably used the words “baby soft” to describe the most elastic and tenderest skin. But while an infant’s skin is fresh and new, it’s also remarkably sensitive. It’s quite common for babies and children to develop eczema – and an uncomfortable little one is an unhappy little one. Oatmeal can help restore baby soft skin, plus it’s extremely mild so there’s little chance of a negative or unpleasant reaction. You can buy what’s called colloidal oatmeal at the store or simply make your own powdered oats using a coffee grinder or food processor. Add the oatmeal beneath the faucet while running tepid water into your tub. This gentle treatment may save your sanity and your child’s sensitive skin at the same time.
