Baby Oil

What are your thoughts on baby oil? Is it good for baby skin?

Dr. Greene’s Answer:

Most babies have skin that doesn’t need any extra oil. But if they have dry skin or eczema, a moisturizer or oil can be very helpful. I like a gentle moisturizer like Eucerin, but baby oil or even Vaseline may used for some kids, if their skin is especially dry or irritated.
