Chapped lips - babies are super prone to chapped winter lips because of all the drool, lip licking, and munching on their own hands - ick. All that baby moisture breaks down the skin on your baby's lips. Fight chapped lips: Apply a super thin layer of petroleum jelly before you head outside. Frostnip - frostnip is better than actual frostbite, but still harsh on baby skin. Frostnip is when exposed skin turns red and tender. Fight frostnip: Dress your baby for the weather and cover all extremities with socks, mittens, and a hat. Don't stay outside for a long time when it's too cold. Sometimes a warm bath after coming inside can help too. Dry skin - dry skin can happen at any time of the year, but winter chills and wind can especially result in dry skin. Fight dry skin: too much water actually makes skin dry, not moisturized. Don't bath your baby everyday, and always use a mild and natural baby soap. Apply a nice soothing moisturizer after his bath. Also make sure you're feeding your baby often - milk and water are important as dehydration can even occur in winter. Heat rash - heat rash is not only a summer issue. People often over bundle babies in winter, then don't take the layers off soon enough after coming inside. Fight heat rash: dress baby in warm but breathable clothing. If he looks overly red and feels warm you can remove a layer. Oh, and as you probably know, mama skin can take a beating during the winter too. Take care and protect your skin naturally during the harsh winter.
