A new baby shampoo can make or break your baby.
“I can tell you, baby shampoo has a huge impact on your child’s health and well-being,” says Nancy Bracewell, M.D., an obstetrician-gynecologist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
“Baby shampoo can do wonders to your child and they will have a healthier lifestyle.”
The best baby shampoos are safe for your newborns, according to Bracéwell, but they’re not for everyone.
If you want to get the most out of your baby shampoo you need to understand what to look for and what’s safe for you.
Here’s what you need: Where to get baby shampoo from Your baby shampoo should come from a source you trust, such as your doctor or your local health authority.
If your baby’s doctor is not on your list, check with your health care provider.
“The safest place for your child to get their shampoo is a baby shower,” says Bracenewell.
“Your doctor or health care worker will have the safest hands, the most professional touch and they’ll give you a sample for you to try.
If the baby shampoo doesn’t have a label, it can be contaminated.”
Baby shampoo should be clean.
It should be shampooed with soap and water and the product should be soft, not hard.
For the best results, use a baby shampoo that’s at least 2 to 4 times softer than regular shampoo.
“A baby shampoo is supposed to be soft and it’s supposed to work.
But, you’ll find that the baby is washing his face or his scalp a lot more often,” says Dr. David Deutsch, a dermatologist and the founder of The Body Shower Institute, an online parenting resource.
You can also use a child-friendly product called Baby Shampoo Plus.
The product contains no petroleum, fragrance, or other chemicals that can irritate sensitive skin, says Deutsch.
The recommended baby shampoo: The Body Shop Baby Shampoos for newborns are recommended for all babies, but if you’re choosing to use baby shampoo after you have your first baby, you should check with the brand you’re using first.
“We use baby-friendly baby shampoo on babies because it is formulated with ingredients that are designed to protect babies from harsh chemicals,” says Lisa Sullum, a product manager for Body Showers.
You also should check the ingredients list on the bottle, says Sullamp.
“If you see an ingredient that has a ‘Made in Canada’ label, this means the product is certified to be made in Canada and meets the standards for safe use.”
It can also help to check the label on baby shampoo products made elsewhere in the world, says Brachéwll.
The best babies shampoo is made by an American company called Baby Grover.
The company makes its products in a factory in Fort Worth, Texas, and its baby shampoo contains a mix of ingredients, including parabens, oxybenzone, benzyl alcohol and ethyl alcohol.
“It’s a safe product,” says Sollum.
“Some of these ingredients are known to irritate the skin and cause acne.”
