If you notice something unusual about your newborn’s skin, don’t fret just yet. These common newborn skin conditions are generally harmless and will often go away on their own.
As your baby grows, he’ll explore more and make more of a mess, which means you’ll wash him more often. Your baby’s skin barrier is his first line of defense from the outside world. To remain healthy, it’s important for the skin to be properly hydrated. Be sure to keep his skin moisturized to help protect against dryness.
