Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of chickenpox?

Chickenpox is a common condition in young children, symptoms of which include itchy red spots that appear anywhere on the body.

 

The spots might spread or stay in a small area and they’ll fill with fluid and become blisters before scabbing over.

 

Other symptoms include a high temperature, aches and pains, generally feeling unwell and a loss of appetite.

 

Speak to a GP if you’re not sure it’s chickenpox, the skin around the blisters is red, hot or painful, or if your child is dehydrated. 

Can I Give Ibuprofen to my Baby?

Babies over the age of 3 months can take ibuprofen as long as they weigh more than 5kg which is the same as 11lbs.

 

You should speak to your doctor, pharmacist, health visitor, or another medical professional before giving your child ibuprofen, so you can be sure it’s the best and safest possible choice for them.

 

If you’re ever unsure about any medication you’re giving your child, your doctor, pharmacist, or another medical professional should always be your first port of call.

What lotion can I use on my baby?

Babies have delicate skin, so you’ll need to use a gentle moisturiser specifically designed for babies, or just a simple baby oil.

 

If your baby’s skin is very dry or cracked, avoid using creams or lotions unless told otherwise by a doctor.

 

You may use a natural plant-based oil like almond oil or olive oil to relieve dry skin if necessary.

What are the benefits of a baby massage?

Not only can giving your baby a massage help you to connect with them, but it can ease your baby into sleep, help them to relax, control stress and reduce crying.

 

It’s best to use oil, like Johnson’s Baby Oil, to massage into their skin to keep it soft and supple; but please note that the NHS recommends waiting until your baby is one month old before you start using any oils or lotions.

 

You shouldn’t massage your baby too soon after feeding as it can cause them to vomit - it’s a good time to massage your baby at night to help them sleep as part of their bedtime routine.
