The moisture-laden atmosphere of the monsoon along with the fluctuating temperatures and sneaky germs and bacteria demands extra care for babies. Babies are susceptible to falling sick during this season as their immune systems are still developing.

Skin rashes like heat rash, diaper rash and pus boil in babies are also common during this time. Here are some of the must-have monsoon essentials for babies.

Your 5 Must-Have Monsoon Baby Essentials

  1. A diaper rash cream for your baby’s diaper rashes: Diaper rashes are a common skin concern for babies that can cause red splotches and scales to appear in the genital area and on the baby’s bottom.

Plus, diaper rashes tend to worsen during the monsoon and using a diaper rash cream that has been formulated with natural ingredients will heal the little one’s skin. It acts as a moisturiser to treat and prevent itchy skin and minor skin irritations that are more common in the rainy season.

  1. An organic mosquito-repellant patch to keep your baby away from mosquitoes: The monsoon season acts as a boon for mosquitoes as it becomes easy for them to breed in stagnant water.

Parents always try to safeguard their babies from mosquitoes as they are the carriers of some of the most deadly diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya, and Yellow Fever. Therefore, it is advisable to include mosquito repellent patches to keep your little one away from pesky mosquitoes. All you need to do is stick the patch on your little one’s clothing, or bag and shield your child from mosquitoes for 24 hours.

  1. A talc-free powder for your baby’s monsoon rashes: It is advisable to include a talc-free powder in your baby’s daily skincare regime to treat or prevent monsoon rashes or heat rashes. The baby powder absorbs moisture and reduces skin-on-skin friction and thus heals monsoon rashes in babies.

In addition, it absorbs sweat and foul odour and keeps your little one fresh throughout the day. Hence, it is advisable to choose the one that has been formulated with certified natural ingredients.
