Help me! I need something to help baby's super dry skin.

I have super sensitive skin, so I spend most of the winter dry and itchy. It's not pretty, but I smear lotion on all over and deal.

Fynn though? Poor baby has my skin, but she's not dealing. She gets itchy and scratches and scratches. Sometimes she makes herself bleed after scratching so much. I know she's miserable, but nothing's helping so far.

Right now she sleeps with a humidifier and I lotion her up as much as possible. We also try to keep her covered up with onesies and footie pajamas to keep as little skin exposed as possible. 

It's not enough.

Tonight I spent 20 minutes at Target looking at all the baby lotions, but I didn't know where to start. I need some advice. What has worked for other people? Has your baby experienced this type of winter skin? What helped? I've heard great things about coconut oil, but I'm not sure where to find it.

Seriously, help a mama out!

  1. My oldest son has eczema, so he scratches until he bleeds all winter long. When his skin is really bad, lotion can really burn (even the "gentle" ones like Aveeno). Aquaphor is our go-to for seriously dry skin. It's pretty gooey and gross, so if it's an area that won't have clothes over it right away, CeraVe works pretty well too. Neosporin's Eczema Essentials is also pretty great. Good luck :)

  2. I bought this coconut oil because it got good reviews and was a good price per oz. http://www.amazon.com/Carrington-Farms-Organic-Virgin-Coconut/dp/B00CPZPYLS/ref=sr_1_27?ie=UTF8&qid=1391447479&sr=8-27&keywords=coconut+oil

    Whatever you get, make sure it's organic/unrefined.
