No. why you want to use it? if potential risks out weighs the benefits then you can go ahead. I find no reason why you should apply it.

Hi,Awilda,
Thanks for query,
There is no harm using calamine lotion in newborn child if it is advised by doctor.
But why you want to use this lotion ?
There are quite good baby lotions are available in the market containing skin protection barrier and vit E.
Ok and bye.
