What’s the best moisturizer for baby?

Spoiler alert - it isn’t La Mer! As is the case in most departments, breast milk stands out as the number one elixir to help sooth and protect your baby’s delicate skin. A milk bath is great way to treat your babe to an at-home spa service, all you’ve gotta do is add a packet of freeze dried or fresh/frozen milk to the bath water. Let’s explore some of many benefits:

🍑 Heals diaper rash: research has shown that breastmilk is as effective as 1% hydrocortisone cream in curing diaper dermatitis.

🧚‍♀️ Soothes skin: lauric acid works double time as a moisturizer and antibacterial agent.

☀️ Treats sunburn: the omega 3 and 6 fatty acids in breastmilk can reduce the inflammatory response to UV damage.

💦 Moisturizes: breastmilk contains palmitic & linolenic acids that help to lock-in moisture and create a barrier on the skin.

🛡️ Protects against pathogens: treats minor cuts and scrapes and can prevent bacterial infections. Breastmilk might even expedite healing by promoting skin cell regrown and repair.

A client recently shared that she was so grateful to have had her {m}othership milk packets along with her on a recent trip! Sure, it simplified feeding, but she was extra happy she had it to add to her baby’s bath after they had a reaction to the hotel’s laundry detergent. This resourceful mama just emptied a packet into her baby’s bath and her skin issues were cleared up by morning!
