In NYC it seems like spring and winter are having a battle of the seasons being that it's cold one day and really hot the next. In a regular year, Spring is the time when temperatures start to rise and get nice. That's a calling to all the families to head outdoors and have some fun. However, high temperatures seem to bring out the worst in my daughter's skin. She has very bad Eczema and I am VERY cautious of everything I put on or against her skin.
No, I wanted to share a few tips from Dr. Hes, Medical Director of Gramercy Pediatrics in New York City who sits on the board of the American Board of Obesity Medicine and was named 2013 TOP doctor by NEW YORK Magazine, on how to protect sensitive skin during Spring Allergy Season:
- Load up on liquids: Staying hydrated during the spring months is very important as baby gets more active outdoor time and sun exposure. Start with the inside and ensure children get enough to drink throughout the day. Infants should nurse or take a bottle often; older kids should tote a sippy cup or reusable water bottle. Include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and smoothies in your child’s diet too.
- Choose the right fabrics and care for them properly: When it comes to fabrics, it’s extremely important to seek out gentle and hypoallergenic products to care for the items that touch baby's sensitive skin. It's also essential that fabrics be cared for properly. Wash baby's items with a specially-formulated product such as Dreft. Trusted for over 80 years, Dreft comes with a babyhood scent beloved by moms, and it remains safe and hypoallergenic for baby time & time again.
