Protecting young skin in Winter

Protecting young skin in Winter

Although Game of Thrones will tell you winter is coming. It's not. It's here!! The cold, icy weather is known to cause problems with itchiness and dryness, especially amongst little ones. Here's a few tips to keep that skin supple and soft.

Make a layer cake baby

It’s only normal to want to wrap little ones up like an onion, when winter strikes. Annoyingly, skin irritations can arise if  overheating occurs. Dress in easy to remove layers, to avoid any mishaps.

Protect against the elements

Using a pram cover allows you to get outside and soak up that (oh so freezing) crisp winter air. A cover also ensures protection against cols winds, which can lead to skin dryness.

Winter has struck down under and the freezing mornings are hard! Here’s a gluten free winter warmer that’s sure to warm up those little baby bellies in the morning. To make this porridge baby friendly you can simply opt out of using regular milk and use formula or expressed milk instead.

You will need:

  • 1 cup rice or rice flakes
  • 1 cup chopped banana
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup formula or expressed milk (optional)

How to:

  1. Cook the rice or rice flakes by boiling them in a pot till they are soft without any signs of solid grains.
  2. Add chopped bananas and formula or expressed milk (optional) in the same pot and cook them together for two to three minutes. Keep stirring the mixture to ensure an even spread. You can dilute the porridge by adding some water and cooking for additional three to four minutes.
  3. Once done, let the porridge cool well before feeding. This makes a highly nutritious and delicious baby breakfast.
