Before leaving the hospital with their little bundle of joy, most parents are given the opportunity to bath their baby for the first time. Once home, bath time can be a beautiful, soothing, and bonding experience for everyone involved, whilst making it a part of a calming bedtime routine.
Finding something suitable for a newborn’s sensitive skin can be difficult.
When choosing a baby wash and shampoo it’s important to look for labels such as:
- Fragrance free or gentle fragrance
Free from Soaps and SLS/SLES
- Natural ingredients used
It’s also important to keep in mind that babies don’t need to be bathed daily during their first year of life as bathing too often can dry out your little one’s skin. The GAIA Newborn Foaming Wash & Shampoo ticks all the check boxes.
GAIA was founded in 2002 by mother Michelle who was seeking a way to soothe her son Joshua’s sensitive skin, which had developed eczema. All of GAIA’s products are made to be affordable while providing care for all types of sensitive skin.
