Then they end up in the trash, right? So you ask yourself “What is it that mom’s need the MOST of when having a new baby?” They need DIAPERS of course….

All our diaper cakes are constructed with Pampers Swaddlers size 1-2 disposable diapers. We use Pampers Swaddlers because they are the best you can buy, and we use only size 1-2 diapers because they fit most babies for a long time. Did you know that the average birth weight for a newborn is 7 pounds! If baby is born smaller, he or she will still grow into these diapers, and if he or she is on the bigger side he or she will still be able to wear all the diapers in the diaper cakes before he or she outgrows them. Using sizes 1-2 diapers also gives the parents a little longer to enjoy there unique gifts before having to use them. Pampers Swaddlers are truly the Mustang (as my husband calls it) of diapering.
Your newborn's skin is a unique and essential shield that offers protection from the outside world. It plays an important role in maintaining health, and in defending against irritants, toxins and infections. Skin also regulates your infant's internal temperature, and is a tool for exploring the world through touch.
Protect the Protector
For all that it does to protect, your infant's skin needs its own protection. New learning’s from fundamental research on infant skin show that infant skin absorbs and loses moisture at a faster rate than more mature skin. In a recent clinical study, 90 percent of mothers thought their infant's skin was not dry, when in fact 60 percent of their infants had signs of dry skin! It's a good idea to protect your infant's skin and keep it healthy, soft and supple by applying a moisturizer frequently, especially after a bath or diaper change.
Made for Infant Skin
It is recommended that you use a moisturizer that is made specifically for your infant's special needs. Your infant's skin is thinner, and it is also more vulnerable to friction (chafing), detergents and other harsh agents. JOHNSON'S® Baby Lotion is hypoallergenic and gentle enough for a baby's delicate skin. Clinically proven to be gentle and mild, it contains no harsh ingredients and can be used every day to moisturize, soften and protect her skin from dryness. Use it after your infant's bath or anytime your infant's skin needs extra moisturizing.
Special Cleansing Needs
Because your infant's skin is exposed to urine, stool and spit-up milk, it needs to be cleaned often. Always make sure you're using a cleanser that is formulated for her skin. JOHNSON'S® HEAD-TO-TOE® Baby Wash is soap-free, dye-free and hypoallergenic. It's gentle for newborn skin. In fact, it's used to clean newborns in more hospitals than any other baby wash.
Infant acne occurs in approximately 20 percent of all babies. It generally resolves itself during the first few months. It may take the appearance of pimples, whiteheads or a minor rash. Small white pimples or spots called milia usually appear on the face, especially the nose and chin. They aren't itchy and won't bother your baby. They are just the result of immature sweat glands, and possibly hormones from your pregnancy, and will disappear without treatment.
You may also notice during the first few days that your newborn's skin peels slightly - especially on the palms of her hands, soles of her feet, and her ankles. This is perfectly normal, especially if your baby was born past her due date. After a few days the peeling will go away. Just remember to apply a moisturizer made for babies to help maintain her soft skin.
Some babies have cradle cap or seborrheic dermatitis - a skin condition that looks like crusty or scaly patches on the scalp or eyebrows. This is a very common condition that may begin in the first few weeks and usually lasts several weeks or months. It usually resolves completely when your baby is between eight and 12 months old. To help alleviate cradle cap, you can gently massage a moisturizer like JOHNSON'S® Baby Oil - Baby Skin Care onto the patches to soften the crust. Wait a few minutes, then comb gently to remove the flakes. Then you can shampoo with a gentle made-for-babies shampoo like JOHNSON'S® Baby Shampoo.

Other Ways to Protect
You can also keep your baby's skin protected by dressing her in loose-fitting clothing, to prevent chafing. Protect your baby's skin from all direct sun exposure with a hat and other forms of shade.
As your infant grows, her skin will adapt and grow with her. With your care and attention, you play an important role in keeping your infant, and your infant's skin, healthy. And whether you're bathing your baby's skin or smoothing on a moisturizer, you're doing more than helping to keep your infant's skin healthy. With your gentle hand, you're also forming a special bond with your infant through the power of your touch.
