  • yes you can. Make sure to get something that is very natural. Walleida (i think thats how you spell it) has the best baby lotion on earth & it even softened mommy's dry skin. just try not to get it near her eyes.

  • Yes. I wouldn't use one with fragerance. Eucerin Calming cream is great.

  • my ped recommended aquaphor or eucerin like the first poster no fragrence is always better, so regular baby lotion isn't a great idea.

  • just make sure its something greasy so it'll keep the moisture in.

  • I used Vaseling on my infant. The first ingredient in Eucerin is petrolatum anyway so I figured who needs all that other stuff and just used pure petroleum jelly.
