Pediatrician-Recommended Cetaphil Cleanser for Newborns

Baby Shane after her bath yesterday. She is now 7 weeks old.

Before my second baby was born, I was already thinking about the soap or cleanser that I will use on her. I wanted something mild and hypoallergenic because I have a history of skin allergies and so naturally, my children are under observation from the time they are born if they are also prone to allergic reactions.

Aside from the things I mentioned above, I also want something that I can use for both her head and her body. I don’t want two products because that would be cumbersome during bath time. And I was right because Shane is rather fussy during bath time–just like Dindin.

So anyway, the best person to ask would be their pediatrician, right? I ask our doctor and she recommended Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser as both shampoo and body wash. Naturally, I followed her advice.

Left: When Shane left the hospital, she received visits from the nurse for 2 days. They also gave her baths. Right: Papa preparing Shane for her bath.

On Shane’s third week, she developed rashes on her face. I am not sure about the cause, but when it happened, I started washing her face with warm water and Cetaphil using cotton balls. Before, I skipped the face because I never really thought it needed cleanser yet. The symptoms seemed to abate every time we washed. But so far, we have not yet identified the cause of the rash so it persists. My suspicion is the laundry detergent because Shane usually rubs her face on the sheets and on the cloth diapers, so we have changed detergents. I have yet to see the improvement though.

I am very happy with how Cetaphil takes care of my baby’s sensitive skin. It is indeed the perfect product for newborns and those with sensitive skin.

Products from Cetaphil. Thank you.

Meanwhile, I want to thank Cetaphil Philippines for this generous supply of Cetaphil products for our family. Thank you very much! 😀
