Aquaphor as baby moisturizer??


Hi all,

Our pedi keeps recommending that we use aquaphor to moisturize our 1 month old’s skin, but I am hesitant to do this. I am a little nuts about natural skin care and like to control as much of what goes in or on my body (and my baby’s body) as is possible.

That said, aquaphor is only chemicals, really, and the main ingredient is petrol. I’d prefer to stick with coconut oil or other natural moisturizers.

Curious to know what you all think! Have you used aquaphor on your babies, and if so, what were the results? Have you used organic/natural moisturizers, and if so, what is or was your favorite to use on your baby?
