3 Beauty Products You Can and Should Share With Your Baby (or buy even if you don't have one)

My mother-in-law tells a story about early parenthood wherein, being extremely tired, she went to brush her teeth one day and realized only at the last second that the white paste on her toothbrush was Desitin, not Crest. The smell saved her.

While I wouldn't recommend trying to make many swaps, I have discovered a few beauty products that I use for the baby doing double duty for myself. So, if you have a baby, these are things to keep in the arsenal, and if you don't, these are totally worth having around.




I've actually carried around a tube of this for a while for chapped lips and other assorted skin ailments. It leaves a lovely clear shine on lips, is not at all sticky and works like a charm. It is great over lipgloss and a little extra dab on knuckles and cuticles is great in the freezing dry winter weather we are having. It is also recommended for use on the baby's diaper area and over their dry skin right after birth.




The gold standard for no more tears baby shampoo in the iconic yellow bottle. Seriously, the smell instantly takes me back to the days when I would make a soapy mohawk in the tub and my mom would use a cup to rinse out my hair. It was one of the first items I picked up in preparation for the baby's arrival and the only thing I use on her in the tub. Well, I've also written about how it makes an excellent gentle eye makeup remover and it can be used to clean makeup brushes.




My reputation as a beauty blogger precedes me and I was given lots of fancy baby lotions at my shower. Right now, they are looking beautiful on the changing table, but the only lotion I've used so far is an industrial sized bottle of Cetaphil Lotion. Recommended by my pediatrician (who is so cool and laid back) because it's perfume free, dye free, and super gentle and appropriate for newborns. This stuff has kept the baby soft and comfy even as the frigid Pittsburgh winter drags on. I've also found that it's been great to swipe on my own windblown face at the end of the day and also works as a great hand lotion. It is light and sinks in fast, which is good, because, hot damn! Babies are slippery.

Please note! You shouldn't take my word on what to put on your baby! Please check with your pediatrician if you have any concerns.
