My two girls (7 and 2) despise me putting lotion on them after a bath! Luckily their skin isnt dry!

My middle son has eczema and my other two have dry skin so they all wear lotion.

Yes. And after a bath he gets slathered in Vaseline /hydrocortisone mix

Yes, but I only use Jordan Essentials natural Shea butters on my son. I hate the thought of smearing chemicals on his skin, plus it helps with eczema :)

My SD has bad eczema so we put Aveeno Eczema Therapy lotion on her every night.

Yes...not everyday on hot days tho. She can skip a day or two and not have dry skin.

None of my kids use lotion and they never have a problem with dry skin. Lotioning young kids skin all the time is actually bad. Their skin becomes dependent on lotion and will become very dry when not lotioned.

Nope she has never had lotion put on unless she wants it.  We try to use soaps/body washes that do not strip away the body's natural oils.

Yes - my daughter has eczema as well so I keep her lotioned and/or oiled up.
