Your doctor or midwife will likely recommend one, but you have to listen to your body. Some women are nauseated by the high concentrations of iron or are sensitive to other ingredients. So, check around and clear other possibilities with them. Make sure you’re getting enough folic acid, calcium and iron.
It’s all about moisturizing.
There’s no way of knowing if you’ll get stretch marks, but it’s hard not to worry as you watch your belly grow. As your skin stretches it damages the collagen fibres that give it elasticity. You’ll feel tightness, itchiness and occasional burning, but try not to scratch… this only makes it worse! Minimize the damage by using a good remedy regularly, like Bio Oils.
Baby Skincare Products
Smooth, delicate, sensitive… There’s a reason people can’t resist stroking babies’ faces and nuzzling the tops of their heads. One of the goodies you would want to add to your baby’s kit is a perfect moisturizer. To find one that will keep your baby’s skin soft and rash-free, check out the wide range of Aveeno products we have. Also, remember to talk to your baby’s paediatrician before you start using them.
1 in 5 children suffer from eczema, a condition that causes their skin to become dry, itchy, red and cracked. Also known as atopic dermatitis, eczema can start from birth, but usually flares up between 2-3 months. Most babies, however, grow out of the condition as they get older, so it doesn’t mean your child will always have the condition. It’s good to have something to contain the reaction and we’ve listed some baby eczema products on MYDAWA, check them out.
