Health Tip: Washing Baby's Clothes
(HealthDay News) -- Proper care of baby's clothes can help prevent skin irritation and keep baby's skin clear and soft.
The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:
Wash all new clothes, bibs and other accessories before baby wears them for the first time.
If it's easier, wash baby's clothes with the rest of the family's laundry and skip the special baby detergent. However, if baby has sensitive skin, use a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free detergent.
Promptly rinse out stains and use a stain remover to get rid of marks from formula, spit-up or breast milk.
