Do remember that no mother can avoid the rashes which appear the first year. It is dependable and liable to happen. Human skin sets up a barrier within itself against all outside elements. That can include sun, bacteria and other germs. The epidermis can take a year or so to get up and running. Then it functions effectively. The epidermis is thinner; less pigmented and can’t regulate temperature that much. The adults and teenagers have a better and developed skin.

- Fragrance free soaps
Relax for a while when the child turns one year. Its skin can become thicker and rash proof.
