  • It's not made especially for babies, but I used it on mine. Get the thick one in the tub. Does he have excema? It helps. Put it on thickly after the bath.

  • Yes, plain, unscented Eucerin. It does not come labeled 'babies'.

    There are several, much better things you could use though if it is for eczema. Including olive oil, and eliminating dairy- which is the biggest trigger for eczema. Only bathing him every few days, and using a detergent labeled "Free & clear" on all of the clothing/bedding he uses.

  • I do not think there is a baby version, but I have used it on my youngest since he was 4 months old.
