Q:

Hi, my baby is 2weeks old, her skin s gettin darker n darker day by day.. Is dis normal? Is der any tips to improve my baby's skin complexion?



Roopashree Siddireddy

Yes it's normal. Baby skin will become dull or dark. After 3 months...it will regain complexion ( if baby was suppose to be fair). Skin color, height, hair Everything is genetic. So we can't do much..We can give them a healthy skin. Massage daily with olive oil before bath. Leave for atleast half an hour and then give bath with mild baby wash. After drying apply a good moisturising lotion. Give BM as much as possible.

The skin colour of the child is genetic.. However I agree with Roopashree Siddireddy... Plz don't worry about the colour it keeps changing... And also avoid applying any home remedies to make the baby fairer coz that does more harm to the baby's delicate skin... Plz enjoy this phase mommy, don't bother much  about the colour
