While it feels a lot like the cold weather isn’t going anywhere soon (because, well, it technically is still winter), your babe’s skin will always need TLC. We’re talking the art of baby skincare, and with chilly weather, it’s just as important to focus on as it is during the summer. Of course, it’s a little different when the seasons change. A combination of dry indoor heat, cold air, low humidity levels, and harsh winter wind creates the perfect environment for your babe’s skin to need extra moisture. As with all thing baby-related, there are an astounding amount of product options, and naturally, you’re looking for the best baby lotions available. That’s where we come in.

Whether you’re into all-natural, ultra-sensitive skin formulas, rich creams, or lightweight lotions, we’ve got you covered. Actually, we’ve got your baby covered. From their fuzzy little heads to their sweet toes, you’ll be able to help protect them all though the season. Why use a baby lotion? Because they help replenish and retain their skin’s moisture level. That’s important year-round, obviously, but especially in the fall and winter. Protecting your baby’s skin barrier from birth with regular moisturizing is even linked to preventing food allergies. So keep a bottle of one of our best baby lotion picks upstairs, downstairs, and in your diaper bag. You won’t want to be without them.
