She seems to have inherited daddy's sensitive skin, poor girl. Her skin folds are really red and her skin is really dry/cracked in some places If you have had a baby with sensitive skin, what did you do to help moisturize his/her skin and make it better. We already have sensitive diapers and wipes (honest brand) and sensitive skin laundry detergent bc of DH. I'm looking more for something to put on her skin on the dry and red areas.

Thanks in advance!!

It's normal for the majority of a new baby's skin to kind of flake/peel off in the first couple weeks, but for the irritated red areas, if you think it's dry, aquaphor has worked well for my sensitive babies without causing any reactions.
If you think it might be irritation in the folds from the heat of summer, powder could help. My first was a july baby and had a red rash in her chin and thigh folds that cleared up quickly when I started powdering the folds, it was caused from sweat just collecting in her adorable baby chub and irritating everything.

I'd use powder as well and make sure to use water and wipe her down if she looks like she's gritty in her folds. Poor girlie

Plain Vaseline works great, too. Use really gentle, unscented cleansers like Cetaphil or Dove sensitive, too, because the cleanser you use could be causing the irritation and moisturizing well will never fully compensate.
Good luck! My DS had VERY sensitive skin as a baby, and still does to a point, but it has calmed down a lot over the last year or two.

Thanks for all the replies!! I think I will go out tomorrow and get some aquaphor and baby powder and see if that does the trick. If it doesn't, you gave me some other great things to try too. I knew this was the right place to ask this question

Coconut oil. You can find it in the cooking oils at walmart. IT's all natural and organic

Hope this helps!
