Post subject: newborns flaky skin
my lil boy is a week old and his skin has started flaking in places. its only in the creases of his skin. eg. inner elbows, under arms and arond his neck. also between his fingers and toes. it is not dry. is this normal? should i use some baby lotion? and how often should i bath him?

Yes it is normal, Freyas all peeled around her fingers!
I bath Freya every other night, they dont need bathing oftern, unless they have had a leaky nappy! Bathing them too much actualy dries out their skin.
I use johnston baby lotion and Freya loves it as i give her a little massage as i put it on!
