Can we apply gram flour to baby while taking bath?? will it harm the skin

Sheeba Vijesh

gram flour is very drying, otherwise it is good... dont apply on baby, and cant say if baby gets allergic to it either...

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

usually gramflour is used instead of baby soap..it doesnt make skin dry lyk soap r baby wash..
actually it works well on baby's skin too, but meanwhile u shud take care of not rubbing soft skin vigorously and make paste of gramflour before applying-it makes granules soft..care shud be taken if it is used on face too..otherwise it is a good old method..

I use gramflour for baby from 1 month for bath and did not have any skin issues. Just  make sure that it suits to your baby..I make paste by mixing it up with warm water and apply it during the bath..But I never used it for face used it only for body..

Personally... I wouldn't recommend... Though I know a lot of people vouch  for it... But a baby that small usually should be kept natural..
