  • IMMEDIATELY, SOME SAY JOHNSONS BABY LOTION IS OK, BUT I PREFER JOHNSONS CREAMY BABY OIL, IT SEEMS TO BE LESS IRRITATING TO THEIR SKIN

  • I started right after he got home from the hospital, But be careful with what you use because my son got extremely dry skin from Johnsons, but Aveeno works great! (I use the soap and lotion!)
