For the first few months of your baby’s life, his or her skin may not be that dream-like, but here is what you should expect and take care of your little munchkin’s largest organ- the epidermis.
And after some time, when you and your baby take pictures or when you rub your fingers on his smooth, gentle skin, you’d know the journey.
