Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
2 years old baby
using coconut oil for small babeis skin good
please dont worry abt her skin colour....Just relax..I am sure she will be all glowing, beautiful and very confident when she grows up..
Well I use besan with malai in winters and with curd in summers...this maintains my lil one's skin texture...for dryness u can try olive oil..bertolli or figaro olive oil
malai is very good to rid of dryness and safe for baby skin too... Also apply coconut oil..
pls pls do not talk about skin colour.....kindly do not ever speak about it in front of ur girl also when she grows up,....the skin is an organ,should be healthy,do u bother as to which colour ur liver or stomach is...then why integrate this thought process
as for the dryness, be sure to moisturise after her bath,dont use baby powder, little one also had dry skin, when she was a wee thing....
as other mommies have suggested,malai and oils r good....
moisturise after a bath as the skin will lose moisture during use of my water and soap.
Your little angel will grow up to be a smart,lovely,confident, intelligent girl....
sorry about such a long reply,just actually reading another person bring up this subject made me go on n on.....
DrDipti k, you are so right... Thanks for putting forth your view in such excellent words...

can understand mother's concerns. Nothing to worry... Just let her be confident. The glow and charm should be of soul n heart. As many are advising use proper moisturizing lotion and a good oil for massage before bath.
If by birth baby is dusky then... fairness may be temporarily by use of various products. Though both are fair... Ur parents... anyone may be dark and chances that ur baby have carried that genes. Everything is genetically designed.
check the soap n oil you use... some may not suit.
Make home bath powder and use it... ( please remember to apply only on body initially as baby is small and apply after 3 yrs) - 1 kg chana dal + 1 kg Masoor dal... wash, sun dry and powder it. to this add a small packet of camphor and little Kasturi turmeric ( Ambe haldi) you will get online. Mix well and keep in air tight box. avoid moisture to it. Before bath... mix this bathpowder in water or rose water... apply... leave it for 2-5 mins... then wash.
Adults also can use it as facepack or as bathpowder.
