We envy babies and their beautifully untouched hair and skin that has a softness that you can’t bottle, and that you also want to bury your face in every chance you get. But unfortunately they still suffer issues such as cradle cap, eczema, and acne, so we have to treat their hair and skin delicately. Baby needs his or her own products even more than momma does.
So we asked some of the moms we know and love about their favorite go-tos that worked best for their baby’s hair and skin when it came to bath time and beyond. Most are 2-in-1 products (shampoo and body wash), some are 3-in-1 (add bubble bath). Some are not what you’d expect a mom to use for her baby’s hair. All come highly recommended.
Baby Bum Shampoo & Wash
This junk-free gentle foam cleanser from Baby Bum smells so good you’ll have to make sure the rest of the family isn’t using it all.

Dove is known for its moisture and they didn’t skimp when it comes to this shampoo and wash in one.
