Go with the Shakleebaby products that Patty W. suggested. You can't find anything else as good.

Many other stores sell Aveeno. Target Walmart Sams Club even CVS. Thats the only thing Ive used so far and would hate to have to change.

These are new products and I have not used them personally. I am an Shaklee Independent Distributor. But I bout them for my niece when her baby was born and she loves them. They are as natural and gentle as you can get.

For the bathtub, I grind up oatmeal (just quaker oats, but NOT the instant kind) in my magic bullet (or another food processor) and sprinkle it in. The oats absorb dirt and soothe sensitive/itchy skin. My son has horrible eczema/psoriasis and this was the only thing we could find that helped him sleep better at night without giving him benadryl like the doctor wanted us to do every day. I also like Grandma El's line of skin care products, they are pricey but they stretch a long way. Best of luck!

I love Aveeno products.
I would contact Aveeno, and tell them that your store is not carrying the product anymore, and see if they can ship it to you for free.
Walmart carries some Aveeno products.

I love anything with aloe and lavendar as the first few ingredients- they seem to really help sooth irritated and dry skin. My son has eczema and this is the only stuff that seems to work!

I've used Arbonne for about 4 years on him (I can get you some if you want to try). I loved it- the soap is non stripping and is made from botanical ingrediants. However, i've found that the lotion isn't moisturizing enough for his dry skin- not enough aloe and lavendar which, i love ;)

Lavendar farms has awesome products. LOVE their lavendar bubble bath and lotion. Though it's not "soap-free" and will sting the eyes.

We just recently switched to these two products after the birth of my daughter: California Baby wash and shampoo and Cocoon Baby lotion. When i run out of Cali. Baby, i will probably purchase the Coccoon Baby wash. I love the smell!

Hope that helps!

My son has occasional eczema and I grew up with sensitive skin. As a child I could not use soap, bubble bath, etc so my mom bought Aveeno and Neutrogena bars. There are many more products out there right now. For my son, the doctor recommended using basic Dove for the bath. I know you are probably willing to spend money if it helps, but you could start with Dove and if it doesn't work, could use it for yourself! Good luck!

I use california baby on my daughter!!

I know it sounds simple, but either pure olive oil or almond oil work wonderfully.
I probably prefer the almond oil as it doesn't smell like a salad, but both are 100% natural, super safe for sensitive skin and absorb completely into the skin and allow the skin to "breath" naturally.
My son and I have used almond oil since his birth, and he's never had a problem.
Good luck!



answers from Indianapolis on

I'd seek the advice of a Dermatologist if her skin is really that sensitive. We love our pediatrician, but he knows he has no expertise in dermatological issues, so our daughter has been going to a Derm since she was 10 months old, and we've learned about great product lines (OTC) like Vanicream. It has been amazing for her eczema.

She's also contracted MRSA, and the pediatrician has suggested bleach baths as a last resort. When I went to the Derm for myself the other day, she had a much different, less invasive recommendation.

So, all that to say, it's worth a call to a derm, an appointment, and knowledge about products that are FDA approved, meet your needs and may not make the matter worse.

Good luck!

I still use Aveeno but buy it at Sam's or the grocery store--sometimes a 2-pack at a membership club is cheaper. Most other products that are focused on sensitive skin are pricey, like Arbonne (which you buy from a representative) or Method (who make yummy baby products now). I usually moisturize with vaseline. I tried Ivory bars but my son's skin got irritated, so we are sticking with Aveeno a little longer. Sorry you're losing it!

I love Weleda's Calendula Shampoo and Body Wash. My daughter still uses it at 6 because of her eczema.



answers from Pittsburgh on

I buy Aveeno products at the grocery store....maybe you could check there. I also think that Target carries Aveeno stuff. If you know you like them, why switch? Good luck!

I like Burt's Bees products and Aquaphor lotion. I usually only use the Aquaphor at night, otherwise I either use Burt's or Body Shop lotion. I don't use the Body Shop that much, but their products are really very nice without a lot of junk in the them. The body butters work wonders on my kiddos!
