Some simple newborn baby care tips for your little bundle of joy:
Moisturizing is key: It is extremely important as a mother of a biracial baby, that you understand that your child’s skin is prone to drying up easily. You will be able to tell very easily when their skin is drying up. Dry skin can lead to many, otherwise avoidable, skin problems. Make sure you get your baby intensive moisturizing baby care products and also moisturize at least twice a day.
Shampoo: Make sure you pick the right shampoo for your child. Biracial children are prone to have dry, rough hair. Do not wash your baby’s hair too often as this will only lead to their hair drying up even more. Pick a mild moisturizing shampoo for your baby as this will help retain the moisture and keep their hair relatively soft. Natural shampoo’s enriched with essential oils and honey are good for their hair. We also recommend sulfate-free shampoos.
Oiling: Oiling is essential for your baby. Oiling works wonders especially in mixed race babies, who are prone to dry hair and skin.
