Between bathing, remember to regularly clean baby dribble or spit up from their neck area and keep this area dry to avoid ‘dribble rash’. Opt for a chemical free baby wipe, such as WaterWipes, made from purified water and grapefruit seed extract, which is renowned for being a natural skin conditioner.
Your baby is also much more likely to suffer from dry, chapped lips or sore cheeks as their skin is thinner. Try rubbing a small amount of coconut oil on the baby’s face and lips before going outdoors and try and limit the time they spend outdoors when it’s especially cold.

WaterWipes has been developed by Irish Breeze, a manufacturer of high quality skin and baby care products. CEO of Irish Breeze, Edward McCloskey first started work on WaterWipes when his newborn daughter developed severe nappy rash. He explained: “When our first daughter was born she suffered with sensitive skin and developed extremely bad nappy rash. I wanted to find out why, so I took a look at the ingredients in the baby wipes we were using. I was quite shocked to see just how many chemicals were in these wipes, and questioned should we be putting them on new-born, delicate skin? I thought there had to be a better way and set about creating a better, natural and chemical-free alternative. Many years later, and after a lot of hard work, testing and scientific research WaterWipes were born.”
Containing only two ingredients, 99.9% purified water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract, WaterWipes has won numerous high profile and prestigious parenting and product awards. www.waterwipes.com.
