During winter, your baby needs extra care and attention to prevent seasonal illness as the cold season is known to make their skin dry that can lead to diaper rash, rough cheeks, flaky skin and scalp. So, give your little bundle of joy extra care.

Ranjan Pejawar, Bangalore based pediatrician outlines the common skin problems that babies face during winter:

Diaper rash: Wearing a diaper of the wrong size and friction generally causes diaper rashes

Rough, red cheeks: Chapped skin is basically dry skin that becomes inflamed due to irritation caused by friction from clothing and runny nose

Eczema: Babies with eczema have insufficient skin surface for holding moisture. Like regular dry skin, dermatitis tends to erupt during winter

"Baby's skin is naturally hydrated and moist and natural products provide gentle care required to preserve the softness of the baby's skin," says Prathibha, ayurveda expert, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company.

She suggested few methods that can protect your baby's skin from the harsh winter:

Give an oil massage to your baby before a bath to nourish your baby's skin

Give your baby a massage 2-3 times daily with an oil infused with Winter Cherry to improve skin tone and soothe baby skin.

During winter, avoid giving baby a head bath every day and use only lukewarm water for the daily bath. Hot water may hurt the protective layer of your baby's skin.

Choose a moisturizer that contains the goodness of olive oil and almond oil which improves skin softness.

Use a diaper rash cream infused with Almond Oil and Yashada Bhasma to protect your baby's bottom from the irritating rashes.

Choose a mild and gentle shampoo/soap which is enriched with herbs and is from parabens and alcohol.

Use a baby bath with ingredients like Chickpea, Fenugreek and Green Gram to retain the natural oils in baby's skin.
