My son is 8, and I still put body lotion on him after his showers and baths. I've always moisturized my entire body daily since I was really young and I consider it to be an important part of hygiene. I've been doing it since he was a baby to keep his skin healthy and I've kept doing it ever since. He has swimming lessons 3x a week so after swimming lessons I lather him in body lotion as well to prevent dryness and to keep his skin moisturized.
If you used lotion on your child, when did you stop or if you still do use it on them how old are they? Should I stop doing it myself soon or is it fine? (of course now he's a little older he has shorts or boxers on while I do it, its just part of the routine and comes naturally. I see other moms in the family changing rooms at the pool putting it on their kids who are around the same age as mine, so I just decided to ask.
