Scaley Baby?

Is that how you spell it? Click here to enlarge Anyway, Jameson is really peeling on his belly, legs and in between his fingers. Is this typical? I don't know if I should moisturize him or just leave it?

Trent's feet and hands are finally looking better at 3 weeks. I put lotion on after baths and that's it. The visiting nurse told me it was completely normal.

Thanks! I'm glad he's not alone. Click here to enlarge I don't remember DS1 peeling like this. Did the nurse tell you a certain type of lotion? I have some Aveeno Baby.

I swear, I've forgotten everything, I feel like a first time mom. Click here to enlarge

X wasn't scaley either, maybe because he was born in August?? I've just been using Johnsons, and bathing every three days.

DS #1 was really scaley, he was nearly 2 weeks overdue, and it showed. The skin at his ankles was even cracking it was so dry. We had to use petroleum jelly until his skin started healing, then used, IIRC, Johnson's unscented baby lotion.

DS1 was born in July, maybe part of it is the weather/humidity.

Nodak, poor baby! That sounds like it hurt. DS just looks like he's peeling after a sunburn. I'll grease him up and see if that helps.

I'm sure it was for him, he ended up with really sensitive skin too. Couldn't use any scented baby wipes, and could only use one brand of diapers on him.

Audrey was like that too at first- probably for a week or so. At first I would moisturize her heavily and hold off on baths, but I really think now that it was just a normal thing and her skin was just transitioning from the womb to air.

I did enjoy plucking off the obviously hanging by a thread bits while she was nursing though. Click here to enlarge

Amelia was like that. It drove me crazy and I remember slathering her with lotion until it finished peeling.

Audrey was my top name choice for Amelia, but dh wanted her middle name to be Rose so we ruled it out.

Coop was scaley, too. Eucerin seems to help a lot.

Hi MKE,

You look really concerned about the scaly skin of your baby. In order to get rid of scaly skin, you need to apply baby lotion gently on your baby's body. The lotion will maintain the pH value of your baby's skin to 5.5 which will help your baby to get rid of skin irritation and dryness.
