Baby Soap Frequently Asked Questions

Should Newborns Be Washed With Soap?

Many people delay washing their baby's skin with soap in the first 4-6 weeks, as it is sensitive and soft. After this period, a newborn’s umbilical cord should have fallen off, or a baby boy’s circumcision should have healed. If you don't want to wait that long, it's important to use a fragrance-free baby soap during bath time and unscented natural moisturizers after your baby’s bath.

What Soap Can You Use On A Newborn?

In the beginning, baby skin does not require frequent washing. We start our babies with the Castile soap until they are about two months old. Then we switch them to the Purity soap until they are six months old. Both of these goat milk soaps are unscented, non-toxic, natural, and contain moisturizing ingredients.

What Soap Is Best For Babies With Sensitive Skin?

Babies have soft, delicate skin that requires the right products. For babies with sensitive skin, it’s even more imperative that you consider your baby soap carefully. For a baby with sensitive skin, you want to choose a soap that hydrates and protects the skin but also does not cause any allergies, irritations, or infections.

Our Goat Milk Stuff Soaps are all-natural and ideal for those with sensitive skin - even those with eczema and psoriasis. The Castile soap is made with organic extra virgin olive oil, making it incredibly gentle on the skin and ideal for newborns. As your baby grows, you will be able to switch to the Purity soap bar, which is made using natural ingredients. This means that it’s non-toxic and non-fragrant, so it will not cause any skin irritations for your baby.

How Often Should You Bathe a Newborn?

A newborn baby, till the age of 12 months, can be given a full bath around 2-3 times a week. If they enjoy baths, you can bathe them once a day, but more than this may dry their skin out.

It's important to keep the water lukewarm, as neither hot nor cold water is comfortable for babies. Also, on days you don’t bathe the baby, gently clean their face, diaper area, and between any folds of skin.

Should You Moisturize a Baby's Skin?

This depends on your baby’s skin. Some babies should be moisturized after bathing to help prevent dryness and irritation. Other babies will need nothing on their skin after being cleaned with goat milk soap.

If you do decide to moisturize your baby, keep in mind that their skin is delicate and can be easily irritated by exposure to soaps and detergents. Our gentle, fragrance-free lotion is ideal for babies, but it is still important to test it on a small patch of skin first to check for any potential allergic reactions. It's also important to remember that babies do not need to be lotioned all over their bodies, just on the areas that tend to be dry, like the face, hands, feet, and legs.

Is Goat Milk Soap Good for a Baby's Skin?

Absolutely! The natural fat molecules in goat milk help moisturize and soothe the skin, while the milk's lactic acid can help gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells.

Goat milk soap is also less likely to cause allergic reactions than other types of soap, which can be beneficial for babies with sensitive skin. However, it's still essential to test the soap on a small area of skin before using it all over the baby's body.

Goat Milk Soap for Babies Testimonials

"Dear Jonas Family, Thank you so much for making such wonderful products for my sweet baby boy. He suffered from excema and dry scalp and we tried several products before finally finding you. Once we started using the Purity soap and the goat milk shampoo bar all that vanished. That was about a year ago and we're still using your products and he's still excema free! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Many blessings,"

"Goat milk soap has done WONDERS for my daughters skin!! She is 17 months now. I've been using the traditional soaps like Baby Aveeno, Shea Moisture Baby, but her skin would always be dry before the end of the day. I've been using the Oatmeal Milk and Honey Soap for about 2 months and there has been such a dramatic transformation in her skin. It is so soft! Even the days without full baths it remains soft! I will DEFINITELY be repurchasing this for her! Great products!!!!"
