need to find a natural lotion for ds

Hey ladies, my ds (almost 10 months old) has developed a minor case of excema, I switched to an all natual homemade soap that seems to work really well on his sensitive skin, but he still needs a lotion. The doctor suggested we try eucerin, but it gave him a big rash so now I'm a little worried about trying new lotions. Do any of you use a good natural lotion that you would suggest I try on his dry sensitive skin?

Get expellar or cold pressed coconut oil. I'm going through the same thing right now with a eczema type rash on my son.
I took a few spoonfuls of coconut oil and whipped it with my kitchen mixer for a minute or two. Put the whipped coconut oil in a baby jar I saved, and now I have natural lotion.

Ooh, I didn't think of whipping it. That's a great idea.

It's awesome whipping it because then you don't have to deal with the solid oil in the jar.
I live in a cold area so our coconut oil is always more solid. Although, I did leave the whipped oil in an area that got direct sunlight. It took the silky whipped-ness away and turned it back into a solid.
