Baby’s skin is very sensitive – 10 times more sensitive than adults. A newborn baby’s scalp has highly active sebum secretion and is likely to become dirty, as skin is still bolstered by maternal hormones. Skin problems will occur if nothing is done. By washing baby’s hair daily or every 2 days or even when your baby’s sebum secretion levels drop after the first two months, its best to give your baby a bath and wash his hair at the same time.

Some mothers use shampoo containing soap or body wash to clean baby’s hair. Even though body wash can clean off dirt, it is not formulated with hair protection ingredients found specifically in shampoos. These products cause stress on baby’s scalp and hair, as the soap can leave residue in baby’s hair even after rinsing, causing scalp problems and hair to turn coarse.

We have 2 types of shampoos – Baby Shampoo with Lavender and Tear-Free Kids Shampoo. They are made for sensitive skin and hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, colorant-free, and mildly acidic and leaves minimal residue on skin.

  1. Wash the baby’s head last with shampoo on a washcloth. Rinse, being careful not to let water run over the baby’s face. Holding the baby firmly with your arm under his or her back and your wrist and hand supporting his or her neck, you can use a high faucet to rinse the hair. (If you are using a spray attachment with the faucet, be sure the water in the sprayer is warm.)
  2. Wrap the baby in a towel and cuddle your clean baby close.
  3. Follow cord care instructions given by your baby’s healthcare provider.
  4. Use a soft baby brush to comb out your baby’s hair. DO NOT use a hair dryer on hot to dry a baby’s hair. This can cause burns.
  5. Expect your baby to cry the first few times you bathe him or her. Usually, this is just because a bath is a new experience.
