A baby is a bundle of joy that energizes the whole family. Thus it is equally important that you keep the baby energized by taking proper care of the baby. That is by bathing the baby properly, feeding them nourishingly and loving them unconditionally. But nowadays we find ourselves flooded with choices when we go to the market to get some baby soap. So how do you find the right soap that will not harm your baby but at the same time does its purpose. Here are some tips that you could try out to narrow down to a single soap.

  • Always Gentle: A baby’s skin unlike that of an adult is very delicate and sensitive. So when we choose a soap see to it that it is a mild soap, has an almost neutral to alkaline pH, and has little or no active ingredients that could harm the baby’s sensitive skin.
  • Lesser The Ingredients, Better Off You Are: When you see a label that lists out over 20 ingredients of which more than half the names are that you haven't heard off and cant even pronounce, the simple thing to do is-avoid the soap. This is because most of time these extra additions are chemicals and your baby doesn't need all these chemicals at the moment.

  • Hypoallergenic Soaps: In case your baby has very sensitive skin and is prone to allergies then it is advisable that you use hypoallergenic soaps that contain almost nil allergens.
  • Lesser Foam, Lesser Worries: Usually for a soap to lather we add a lot of additional chemicals. While we take a bathe a lathering soap is good because it helps capture more dirt and clean ourselves thoroughly. But babies never really get that dirty, so they don't need all that extra lather and extra chemicals. A little to no foaming or lathering is just perfec.
  • Fragrances: Fragrances are usually the result of chemicals, but they can also be made from natural ingredients. Thus having a soap with natural fragrances that has a mild aroma can be a pleasant surprise for your babies. Try to find out which aroma is better likened by the baby. Let the baby choose.
  • Check The Soap: Test the soap on the baby’s hand to check for irritation or rashes. If alright then go ahead.
  • Bathe Less: A baby doesn't get that dirty and taking a bathe thrice a week is just perfect for them.
