Dealing with Baby Eczema + Seventh Generation Giveaway

When you have a baby you hope and expect that they will come out perfect in every way. You pray that everything you eat and do while your baby is in utero affects them in a positive way. I basically thought about this for 10 long months with each of my three pregnancies. I call these my crazy pants. I strap them on tight and don’t take them off until I’m holding my sweet babies in my arms.

Dealing with Baby Eczema from weelicious.com

With Kenya and Chloe I never had a day where I worried about them having food allergies as they never showed any signs of sensitives. I offered every food under the sun so they could enjoy a wide variety and they never had any reactions. With Gemma, though, it has been a different story. From the day she was born her skin was irritated and dry from eczema which was inevitably part of her diagnosis.

Dealing with Baby Eczema from weelicious.com

We went to several allergists, I cut everything from dairy to gluten to sugar out of my diet for 5 long months. We finally discovered one of the causes being an egg allergy, but her eczema still hasn’t totally disappeared. There’s nothing more heart breaking than watching your child itch non stop whenever her clothes are off. Aside from changing my diet so my breastmilk is free of the foods we know are triggers, taking long warm baths and lubing her up with tons of moisturizing creams, there was little we could do to alleviate her pain.

We’ve always been conscious about the products we use in our home, but with anything that touches Gemma’s skin we have to be militant. We’ve always been big fan of the entire line of Seventh Generation products, but now with Gemma in diapers, using wipes on her skin several times a day and touching every surface around our home we’re even more aware. Watch this quick video to get even more ideas on how you can protect your children from pollutants, toxins and irritants and ideas of alleviating some of the possible causes of baby eczema in your home.

    My husband and I both developed eczema in our adult years. My husband wash with diluted dove baby sensitive body wash. To treat skin, we use oatmeal st ives (no parabens, etc) lotion on normal skin, laroche posay lipikar baume for trouble areas. For adult skin, we use a generous amount of cortisone for only a few applications, as soon as we suspect a flare up spot. Better to nip it in the bud instead of letting it grow slowly into a large patch with a huge itchy border.

    Wow! Glad her skin looks like it has cleared. My son had eczema that looked exactly like her’s at 5 months. Through allergy testing we found he was allergic to eggs, cow’s milk, and cashews. All of which I was eating regularly and he was getting through my milk. He was miserable too. Once I eliminated those foods his skin completely cleared and he was so much happier. At 13 months he is still allergic to eggs and milk but hoping he grows out of them. Best to you and Gemma!

    My second child, just over a year old, has been riddled with eczema and a walnut/pecan allergy. We slather him daily but as the winter months kick in, I’m looking for the best ways to lock in moisture for his itchy legs. I look forward to trying the seventh generation lotion.

    My little guy didn’t have eczema until he stopped breastfeeding and started eating more solid foods. It’s on his wrists, ankles and sometimes behind his knees but not as bad. The pediatrician told me too generously lubricate those areas until it cleared up. She said it would take a couple weeks. My best guess as far as allergies was cow milk but we also live in a very dry climate with harsh winters

    Hi Catherine,
    I took care of a few kids who had skin issues including my current charge. My boss tried everything from average to the most expensive stuff and nothing helped. In a past I Met a mom who ate chocolate and as soon as she stopped her son’s skin healed. Another mom bathed her daughter in oatmeal bath and it healed her skin. I believe that skin issues is a way our body express what’s going on inside physically and emotionally so I give the children I take care of a daily healing massage after their bath and whenever we sit to read. I think it helps to calm their nerves and stabalize their system. I gently rub their arms, their hand and feet. Whenever they don’t feel well I sing to them the rain, rain go away song but I change it to whatever it is they are illed with. It usually they get healed fast. As they say: ” As the msn thinks, so is he”. So I sing lits if I’m healthy dongs with them. Rarely the kuds I take care get sick.

    Allergies, excema, asthma….all too common among our children these days. As a medical professional, nutritionist and liver of all things natural it’s amazing to see/hear so many moms doing the best they can fir the health and well-being of their children! Natural, non-toxic, safe products make sense for families! Unfortunately some “green” companies aren’t as green or safe as they claim. Do your homework and your family will thrive!

    My daughter gets eczema on her little ankles, elbow creases, and behind the knees and it just kills me to watch her itch. I’ve tried multiple creams and shampoos. Waiting to wash her body and hair until the end of the bath and not putting any bubbles in the bath has helped a little but I am afraid she may have an allergy as well.

    My daughter has occasional bouts of eczema. It was really bad until we took her for allergy testing, and determined she is allergic to egg whites and peanuts. After changing our whole family’s diet, she improved rapidly. She still has occasional flare-ups, so I slather her with Baby Cerave cream every morning and night to keep her skin moisturized.

  55. Jennifer Sansone

    October 5, 2016 at 8:46 am

  57. Cydni

    October 5, 2016 at 6:48 am

    My 5 year old had really bad eczema until she was almost 3. Like you, I was only using natural products and was slathering her with different oils trying to find something that helped. It wasn’t until we found out about all of her food allergies that it got better (eggs, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, mango, coconut). Her reaction to coconut on the skin test was more mild than the others, but that was the only allergen I hadn’t already pulled from her diet. After eliminating coconut it took some time but eventually it all cleared up and we haven’t had a flare-up since. It took awhile to catch all of the coconut in bath products, laundry detergent, etc since it’s under different names but once I did it made a huge difference!! I hope you can find Gemma’s trigger.

    My daughter MacKenzie, now 7, has had eczema all her life and as much as I try to relieve it nothing works! We use dye free and fragrance free products and no fabric softener even though we have hard water.. She has her own soap too! Every night and every morning I lather her up (with a fun massage) and she hates it. We have never tried strength seventh generation products but maybe it will work for her..

    My 3 month old has eczema and I’ve cut dairy, eggs and more from my diet. Another thing I do is to completely dry the water from his skin after bath and between the skin folds after his bath and diaper changes. Then, I slather him with lotion to stay moisturized.

    My second little boy Aidan has developed extremely sensitive skin. It is heartbreaking and has been a non- stop process to find things that don’t irritate his skin. Right now Motherlove diaper rash and thrush cream seems to work. I’ve switched out wipes to Seventh generation. Next is on to diapers and detergent. I’ve been waiting and watching between products to see what works and doesn’t. It’s been a long and expensive process and at times discouraging. Aidan is most of the time good natured about it which helps.

    I myself have a son who has had severe eczema since birth. It is heart breaking to see your child suffer and be so itchy they cannot sleep. Our son is now 6 but still has flare ups and we have to be incredibly diligent about what he eats and the things which touch his skin. Having some Seventh Generation products would be so helpful for my son and our entire family. I also have a 10 month old who shows some signs of eczema as well. I will do and try anything to help my babies!

    We use All free and clear laundry detergent. I like California baby super sensitive body wash and shampoo. We use vanicream lotion which isn’t as sticky and heavy as aquaphor.

    My son also has an egg allergy that was directly linked to his eczema. He also is allergic to wheat and all nuts, so that eliminated a lot of body care products.

    Aquaphor has been a lifesaver for us – diaper cream, under-the-nose cream for those rough spots after a cold, dry skin…

    My son was diagnosed with egg, dairy and nut allergies, all which started with eczema too.

    I’m dealing with an egg intolerance with my six-month-old too. And I’m still off dairy, soy, gluten, etc etc even though so far eggs are the only definite problem I know of. We’re dealing with some majorly stubborn dry skin by both elbows.

    My oldest has always severely dry skin especially in the winter. I want to lather her in lotions but not in chemicals.

    Two out of our three children had eczema to the point that we were going to a specialist for it. We tried many, many things. It is much better, but they still have some issues with it.

    My son has eczema. The only product i found useful for him is mustela brand. I put it on twice a day and within 3 minutes of him getting out of the bath to lock in the moisture. If he has any flare ups, i just mix in some 1% hydrocortisone cream with his lotion.

    Aside from avoiding allergens, I find using shea butter to be a great way to nourish my little guy’s skin. He has very minor eczema during winter months and a little shea butter everyday takes care of it right away.

    My daughter had similar issues and we’ve had many battles with it. As a result some of our very close family members changed and eliminated chemicals, perfumes, etc. from themselves and their homes. My daughter improved but we still had trouble. Yeast ended up being the major problem. It was eliminated as well as virtually eliminating dairy and sugar. Will pray you find what works best for Gemma.

    Oh poor little thing :( my son had eczema until his food allergy diagnosis – peanuts, tree nuts, soy, legumes/pulses, coconut, sesame, shellfish, egg, sunflower, safflower, flax and mustard :( it took us several tests to finally isolate all of his allergens, but once we did, the eczema and gives disappeared. It was so hard, especially as a vegan, to cut out all of these while breastfeeding, but I feel being super strict helped him outgrow half of these allergies. Good luck on figuring out what else could be causing your little one’s skin irritation – food allergies are no fun but at least manageable!

    Like you with my twin girls I never worried about their skin or foods which I ate now with my 7 week old Baby boy I am extremely conscious. He was just diagnosed with eczema and I am keeping his skin moisturized with acquaphor and experimenting with products that may be good for him. A very stressful process to be going through as you want your babies to be pain free at all times.

    Oh, that breaks my heart. That was the story for my little guy, too. We did every diet, every product, oils, salt caves. Finally, we started doing 20 minute like warm baths with 1 cup of magnesium flakes and he’s been eczema free and off topical steroids for a year. Magnesium deficiency might not be your issue, but it might and it’s worth a try. It’s been life changing for us!!
