    Brindha, we use oilatum cream for the child and now we use non-scented vaseline lotion. The trick is to not completely towel the moisture off after the bath and work the moisture in with the moisturiser. We too had issues with J and J products.

    Brindhaa, Sorry for barging in the thread :)

    Tikka, how do you dry DS after a bath? The process - bath, apply vaseline, dab the towel on him and dry? DD's bum and legs are horrible from this Jan. I have been using gingelly/coconut oil on her wet skin, after bath, but looks like i have to switch to mineral oil or vaseline lotion.

    Pon, I don't get the skin to dry completely with the towel i.e. I do not rub it dry. I try to get the excess water off and work in the rest into the skin with the moisturiser. I let him dry for a couple of minutes under the fan or just air dry and then dress him up. The weather in Chennai is extremely dry, me thinks. my arms are flaking and DH's nasal allergies are flaring up big time.
