What kind of lotion do you use for your kids? Mine are 4, 2 and 3 months. I usually don't even put lotion on them, but my 2 showed some eczema last week. I'm thinking it may be related to soemthing in the diet? My 4yo showed some signs of eczema too at about the same age and I know it runs in my family. Want to use something in the house for all of us that is kid friendly too. Thanks, Lisa

Sesame oil or Flax seed oil are really helpful for conditioning skin in the winter. They are good for preventing/healing mild eczema as well. I have found that many of those ointments like eucerin and aquaphor that people like have petroleum by products and make my skin worse. But not everyone is as sensitive skinned as I am.
