Q: When should I use baby powder?
A: You can apply powder as often as necessary, with each diaper change, at bedtime or any time when there's extended exposure to wet diapers. Change your baby's wet and soiled diapers promptly, cleanse the diaper area and allow to dry. Carefully shake a small amount of baby powder into your baby's diaper, close to the body or into your hand and apply to the diaper area, away from your baby's face.
Q: What's the best way to bathe a newborn?
A:Sponge bathing is recommended for the first few weeks, until the umbilical cord and circumcision, if any, have healed. Wash your baby's hair and body using a gentle baby cleanser, washing the diaper area last.
Q: Why should I give my baby a massage?
A: Touch is one of the first ways parents and babies communicate. Through touch, a baby learns to enjoy the comfort and security of loving and being loved. Infant massage helps enhance the bond begun at birth.
Q: What causes diaper rash?
A: Most babies get diaper rash at least once in the first 3 years. Babies who are 6 to 10 months old, teething, starting solid food or taking antibiotics are especially vulnerable.
Trapped moisture and friction from movement in a wet or dirty diaper can irritate the skin, causing redness and inflammation in the diaper area. Once the skin is damaged, your child's urine and faeces can cause further irritation.
Change your baby's diapers as soon as they are soiled. Cleanse your baby's diaper area thoroughly with baby wipes, a wet cloth or cleansing lotion. Always wipe from front to back. Pay attention to skin folds and creases-make sure they're thoroughly rinsed and dried. Johnson’s Baby Powder can help reduce friction and dampness in creases, too.
Q: My baby is often fussy at bedtime. What can I do to calm her down?
A: It's not uncommon for babies to be fussy at the end of the day. It's their way of coping with all the stimulation of their world. Try to create bedtime rituals that your baby will look forward to. Give her a soothing bath, read her a story or play soft music.
Q: How can I help my baby relax and fall asleep?
A: Massage is a great way to relax your baby before bedtime. Massage Johnson’s bedtime lotion over your baby's entire body to help soothe, soften and moisturize.
Q: How should I clean my baby's ears?
A: Follow your grandmother's advice, "the only thing you should stick in your ear is your elbow". At your doctor's direction, use an ear bulb syringe, an earwax softener, or a swab, such as Johnson’s Safety Swabs to clean the outermost portion of your baby's ears.
