PT#22: Leaving the Skin on Your Hands

Having a baby in the house involves a lot of hand-washing. Not only are you suddenly changing (an inordinate number of) diapers, but when you learn about your newborn's immune system (which basically doesn't exist for the first few months) you instantly become a germ-o-phobe. If you want to have skin on your hands by your child's first birthday, stock up on:

  • Gentle soap - Softsoap makes a nice aloe vera version. Antibacterial soaps aren't necessary
  • Ultra-rich, non-scented hand cream. I like this stuff, my brother-in-law swears by this stuff
