Keep Clothing Loose
Tight clothes can trap sweat against your baby's skin, which can lead to rashes and itching. Dress your baby in layers of soft, loose-fitting, breathable cotton to keep her skin comfortable.
At night, however, it may help to swaddle your infant in a cotton blanket. Swaddling helps many babies sleep better.
Avoid Eczema Triggers
Fragrances. Products with fragrance can cause reactions. Use unscented products whenever possible.
Detergents. Ask your pediatric dermatologist to recommend a gentle, fragrance-free laundry detergent.
Rough fabrics. Consider your wardrobe, too -- change out of a wool sweater before cuddling your baby.
Saliva. Babies who drool when eating or sleeping can get rashes on their faces, because saliva can irritate sensitive skin. Put Vaseline on your baby's cheeks before mealtime or nap time to create a barrier between the saliva and skin.
