yes because of how fast they grow...don't constantly bathe them it dries out their skin and lotion.

Yep DD was born already peeling because she was overdue. I put lotion on her I didn't like the Johnsons one but the Aveeno one worked great. It stopped after about a month

I wouldn't use anything personally. Most lotions contain alcohol which actually make the skin drier. Try some coconut oil or aquaphor on the bad spots. Of my 4 kids the last one was the only one that every peeled. I didn't do anything really and by the time she was a month her skin was fine.

We use Burt's bees, it's the best, and it smells so good.
