Can normal soaps be used for a toddler? - Online Doctor Chats
Good Morning Doctor
Please proceed with your query
Are you there?
Yes..Sorry...there is some problem with the Internet
Proceed with your query.
actually i wanted to enquire if we can use normal soaps for a yr old toddler
*2 Yr old
presently she is using XXXXXXX Baby Soap
* I mean, babies skin is supposed to be very gentle and mild. Most pediatrician recommend using mild soap.
However if your child has no problems with XXXXXXX baby soap
there is no harm in continuing it.
You need not change the soap brand if your child has no problems.
actually there are no rashes or anything..its been very long now she is using it
Please continue it; no issues.
Do you have any other query?
but do soaps tend to make give atn
or darken the skin
There have been some reports that some brands cause skin tanning. However as the reports are not consistent
I wouldn't associate soaps to skin tanning.
If your child has issues, you can try switching to an alternative brand.
ok..actually she is becoming dark..we do not know if its cause of the soap or the weather-
Since you been using the soap for 2 years, if it was indeed from the soap
you should have felt the darkening much earlier.
I don't think its from the soap.
and i had 1 more query
actually my kid stays wid my mum in law at my husbands home town
we meet during the weekends and extended holidays
now we rare planning to get her here to stay with us
but my husband says she will not stay without her grandmother
how can we solve this
as we both are working
Yes, children get associated with individuals and familiar surroundings.
But most get over it much sooner.
you may face some troubles initially, but gradually with your care and affection
you can make her stay with you parents.
As far as the second question about both parents working,
it's a decision that should be taken by you and your husband.
Both of you need to sit together and discuss how to handle it.
Opinion from a third person may not suit your needs.
I can give you a suggestion to bring the grand mother with your child here
yes..but i feel after few days she can get adjusted to this environment
but even worried she might not stary widout her grand mum
If she can't stay for long term, she can assist you initially until you set things right.
that is what is wrryng us
that is what i suggested..
What i meant was you can get her grand mother to stay with you people for sometime.
She can assist you people to set things right if she can't stay for long.
but will my child stay without her after few days
It's something you need to try.
I don't feel you want to keep your daughter away from you for life.
yes..that is there..and thinking about it seriously..so we are confused about how to go ahead
wen we go there she will not leave us
but again in the evening while she goes to sleep she will ask for her grand mom
As I said earlier, children get adjusted to new environment.
Some may take time but eventually they do get over it.
ok Doctor..thanks for the suggestions
i do not have any more queries
Since you parents have taken a decision, you should give it a try before thinking of problems that can arise.
Hope it is clear to you.
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
