7 Newborn Baby Care Products You Must Always Have In Your Home 

When you have a new baby arriving soon, there are many things to prepare. And for first-time mamas, it may be confusing figuring out what newborn baby care products they need. With all the accessories, clothes, toys, and more, do mamas need to buy them all?

7 Newborn Baby Care Products that You Must Have at Home

Caring for a newborn is full of surprises, both good and bad. That’s why you must be prepared with these seven essential newborn care products to protect your little one from typical troubles such as colic and rashes.

1. Soap and Shampoo

Two essential newborn care products are soap and shampoo. Although newborns don’t necessarily need to bathe every day, bathtime is a great and simple way for Mamas and babies to bond.

To make this moment special (not to mention safe), Mama needs to choose a suitable baby soap and shampoo.

Tips for choosing baby soap and shampoo:

  • Be practical and choose a bath product that is a body wash and shampoo in one. It’s economical and saves you time in the bathroom too.
  • Make sure you choose a baby soap and shampoo that don’t contain toxins that can irritate sensitive skin, such as sulfates (SLS/SLES), parabens, and artificial fragrances.
  • The soap has a pH of 5.5 and is non-irritating to the eyes.
  • It would be even better if you choose a bath product with something unique to offer–like being aromatherapeutic to help soothe and comfort babies.

2. Diaper Rash Cream

It’s not unusual to spot a rash or two on a newborn’s skin because their skin is still so sensitive. You’re bound to encounter a variety of rashes, such as heat rash, diaper rash, milk rash, and more.

And when your little one starts to get fussy because of the rash, Mamas need to provide quick and safe relief using a rash cream. 

Tips for choosing a baby rash cream:

  • Make sure the formula is safe and suitable for newborn skin.
  • Choose rash creams that do not contain ingredients that irritate sensitive skin, such as alcohol, mineral oil, parabens, and artificial fragrances.
  • Choose one that has a light consistency and is easy to absorb.

3. Telon Oil

Telon oil is a mandatory care product that every Asian Mama needs. While its primary use is to warm the baby’s body and prevent bloating, many telon oils have innovated and now offer more benefits than just warming the baby’s skin. For example, several telon oils now can help prevent colic, repel mosquitoes, and others. 

Tips for choosing baby telon oil:

  • Make sure the formula is suitable for newborn skin. It’s highly recommended to have a skin test before use.
  • Avoid certain oils and ingredients that can irritate a baby’s sensitive skin, such as eucalyptus oil, mineral oil, parabens,  and artificial fragrances.
  • Choose an oil that contains lavender because it has been clinically proven to calm a fussy baby and make him sleep better.

4. Anti Mosquito Lotion

Sometimes, it’s not enough to use a mosquito net, place a mosquito-repelling plant, or install screens on windows and doors. Somehow there’s always a stray mosquito that manages to get inside your home and snack on your baby’s leg or arm.

More than the bite marks left on your baby’s skin, it’s the dangerous diseases some mosquitoes are carrying, such as DHF, malaria, and elephantiasis, that can be genuinely worrying.

Tips for choosing baby mosquito repellent lotion:

  • Make sure the formula is safe and suitable for newborn skin.
  • Then, choose one that can protect for at least 8 hours.
  • It does not contain ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin, such as DEET chemicals, alcohol, mineral oil, parabens, and artificial fragrances.

5. Hand Sanitizer

Mamas need to be more paranoid than ever to protect babies from viruses and bacteria in a pandemic like this. So if you’re traveling outside or heading to a checkup, a hand sanitizer is one essential that you should always keep handy.

But while there are endless options, don’t choose blindly because alcohol-based hand sanitizers are harsh on a baby’s skin. It can cause dryness, aggravate dermatitis, and even increase the risk of poisoning when it’s accidentally ingested.

Tips for choosing hand sanitizer for babies:

  • Make sure the formula is safe and suitable for newborn skin.
  • It does not contain ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin, such as alcohol, mineral oil, parabens, artificial fragrances.

Is your baby’s hair thin? You can give it extra nourishment and care with a hair lotion for babies. You see, using hair lotion with the right formula regularly after bathing can help make a baby’s hair thicker and healthier!

Tips for choosing hair lotion for babies:

  • Make sure the formula is safe and suitable for a newborn’s scalp.
  • It does not contain ingredients that can irritate the scalp or hair, such as alcohol, parabens, silicones, and artificial fragrances.

7. Sunscreen for Babies

Do you want to take your little one out of the house for outdoor play or a fun afternoon in the pool? Don’t forget to apply sunscreen on the parts of your little one’s body that will be exposed to the sun.

With their skin extra sensitive to sunburns, a layer of sunscreen ensures your baby is safe from harmful UV rays.

Tips for choosing a sunscreen for babies:

  • Make sure the formula is safe and suitable for newborn skin.
  • It does not contain ingredients that can irritate sensitive skin, such as alcohol, mineral oil, parabens, artificial fragrances.
  • Choose one that has a light consistency and is easy to absorb.
