Baby Skin Update

Since we stopped bathing Oliver every day and switched to every three days, his skin has improved drastically! He no longer has an itchy patch of dry skin between his eyebrows, and he's stopped scratching that area open. Thankfully, less bathing hasn't resulted in more cradle cap, either.

To clarify, the dry, itchy skin on his face was not the eczema concern. The questionable eczema patch started behind his ears, and then the same type of patch appeared on the side of his abdomen. These spots, too, have improved drastically, either from less bathing or from ceasing his yogurt consumption (or both).
