Harnessing Ayurvedic Wisdom in Modern Day Baby Products

If you’re like most new parents, you’ve probably heard or seen articles touting the magic properties of Ayurveda for babies. You might’ve heard of babies that sleep for 6-8 hours at a time, colicky babies that were no longer fussy, digestive and skin issues that miraculously disappeared, and the list goes on. Along with that increasing emphasis on pure, natural and organic products, new parents often find themselves in a dilemma with what brands or products to trust. Trusting your babies with safe and reliable products is like finding a buddy that’ll stay with the little ones until they grow out of it. And if the products are plant-based, organic and ayurvedic, you’ve got a keeper.

A daily ritual of every new mom consists of oil massage and bathing- oil massage being the precursor to a better bathing experience. Massage oils enriched with herbs provide strength to their muscles and are a great way to relax your babies and give them a sound sleep. Best time for sleep-deprived mothers to score sleep for themselves, too, right?

Ayurveda for babies and juniors is beneficial, with the bonus that starting your kids with an Ayurvedic lifestyle can build healthy habits that’ll stay with them for a lifetime.  Babies have delicate skin and are more vulnerable to allergies, infections, and rashes. Therefore, it is important to keep your baby’s skin well-moisturised and hydrated at all times.

Did you know babies' skin is 7 times drier than adults?

Caring for your baby’s skin requires time, love and attention. Here are some quick and simple tips to keep your baby’s skin healthy: 

  • Massage your baby with ayurvedic oil: There are several benefits of baby massages. The baby feels nurtured and loved, but regular massages also keep the baby’s skin hydrated and moisturised at all times. Massage oils powered with herbs like Ashwagandha and Jesthamadha are the best and most effective to prevent dry skin. Use an ayurvedic baby oil enriched with herbs and free of chemicals. For massage, pick a time when your baby is awake and feeling happy. 

Packed with a blend of 13 powerful essential oils like almond, Coconut, hempseed oil, organic ghee, Janma’s massage oil keeps your baby’s delicate skin soft and hydrated and also helps in boosting the bone health and building and fortifying the muscle tissue. The oil is super gentle on the baby’s sensitive skin. It helps get rid of dryness and rashes or eczema. Apply this ayurvedic baby oil after your baby takes a bath or before your baby goes off to sleep.

  • Bathing time- the most funnest bonding time: Bathing your babies can be the most beautiful experience, thanks to bubbles, giggles and grins, wiggles and whooshes. Nice, warm baths allow babies to relax, calm down and sleep well. But moms often have to boil the ocean to find a good body wash that’s gentle and has the best ingredients. Janma’s body wash, specially designed for babies, has the goodness and primitives of Cucumber, Turmeric, Oats, and Rosemary. Plant-based and enriched with Coconut, it cleanses the baby’s delicate skin and restores moisture.
