I love the Aveeno line of products. They make a bunch just for the little ones. My daughter has sensitive skin too and has had no reactions to any of their products. I even love the spray sunscreen they make. Their products are a bit pricier than the other options but I think it is worth it.

Hello friend, My yougest daughter was diagnosed with ezema. She was only about 2 weeks old. I took her to a dermatologist, and they sugested that we use Dove unsented white bar. I used the Dove sensitive skin bar. It worked like a charm. The dermatologist explained to us that the ingredients in liquid soap also can irrate skin. We were also to use laundry soap that was also unsented. Like All Free Clear, and we used the matching fabric softener also. We washed all of her clothes, bedding, towels, wash clothes, etc with it. I also washed all of my nursing tops with as well. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Johnson's baby wash is a good, mild soap. But if your baby's skin is very sensitive, try using just plain water every other time, luke warm water instead of hot, and only bathe her every other day. In between baths, just clean her diaper area, hands and face well. If the rash seems to be bothering her, talk with her pediatrician about what to do about it. I don't want to recommend a lotion because there may be allergies or other things to consider. It is best to ask her doctor because he or she knows the medical history and any things that should be avoided.

You can try Dove, Johnson or Wipro Baby soap for your baby. I use Johnson baby soap for my baby.

Use mild and hypoallergenic soaps and skin cleansers. My baby has sensitive skin, too, and I brought him to the doctor once because of rashes and skin allergies. The doctor changed his soap and gave him cetaphil skin cleanser which was to be used as soap. You may also use Dove. It is good for baby's skin.

I saw that everyone suggested Johnson & Johnson products , which are good and I used them on my kids, also. But, one of my kids did have extra sensitive skin as a baby and I would use the baby product by Aveeno. Their products contain oatmeal, which can be very soothing for sensitive skin. Hope this helps.

My kids grew up with Johnson's baby care products,that includes the soap.Maybe you could try organic baby soap as your baby's skin must be too sensitive.You could search for products with brand name erbaviva,earth mama angel baby or little forest..from what i know they have lines of baby care products that are organic.You could try one of those.Good luck!

I would use Aqueous cream its an all over body moisturiser suitable from birth and its wonderful, can be got on prescription from gp or bought from a chemist for a small amount. Just apply a couple of times a day and extra after a bath, try not to bathe her too often as that doesnt help dry skin either. And if her skin is that bad id avoid any kind of soap a baby will be clean just from water alone xx

Dear friend, I had mostly seen that most using products for babies are Jhonson and Jhonson products.
