What are these red bumps on my baby?

A 3-Step Solution for Baby’s Irritated Skin

A baby’s skin is smooth as silk and softer than a thousand feathers. Right? Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. That perfect baby skin can become irritated once it comes in contact with the world around it.

Chemicals in products, irritants in fabric, saliva, poop — even wind — can take a toll on sensitive skin. Many babies develop red bumps or rashes from conditions such as eczema, chicken skin, psoriasis, cradle cap, baby acne, diaper rash, teething rash, or heat rash. Their symptoms range from uncomfortable to downright painful. Too often, we parents try everything to help them, only to come up empty-handed.

That’s what happened to us! Our second babe, Walker Todd, developed severe eczema, and we tried everything over the counter, under the sun, and through the grapevine. Nothing worked. As Walker’s skin worsened, she started experimenting with essential oils and other all-natural ingredients to develop her own wash that soothed his skin. We went on to create a lotion and ointment that actually healed his skin and kept the irritation from coming back. It was so relieving to know we had a natural product to relieve his pain. 

Since then, thousands of parents have used our Tubby Todd 3-Step Solution to heal their own babies’ tender skin.  

Step 1: Wash with Tubby Todd Hair and Body Wash. This completely natural wash is free of artificial fragrances. It gently cleans but also moisturizes and hydrates baby’s skin during bath time.

Step 2: Apply Tubby Todd Everyday Lotion. Best applied directly after bathtime to moist skin, our Everyday Lotion is filled with essential oils that hydrate and soothe irritated areas.

Step 3: Cover the skin with Tubby Todd All-Over Ointment. This natural balm is really a love-child between a salve and an ointment. With a beeswax base, it creates a natural barrier that locks in the moisture of the ointment and keeps out wind and other elements that might be irritating to the skin.

By repeating Steps 2 and 3 at every diaper change you can help ensure your baby’s mystery bumps beat a quick retreat. If further irritation persists, it may be worth a trip to the dermatologist.

There’s nothing worse than watching your baby suffer and not knowing how to help. Don’t worry, on this one, we’ve got you covered. For more information about Tubby Todd’s all-natural, plant-based bath and skin care products visit tubbytodd.com.

I want to know the answer to Taylor’s question above. Can I use to clear up newborn face acne? She’s 7 weeks old.


Can I use the all over ointment on my newborns face when she has baby acne?

At what age would you prescribe these? // What are the ingredients that set it apart from other healing remedies?

I’m a first time mom and was under the impression that babies should have the least amount of stuff on their skin as possible, so I guess I’m just wondering how all this stuff (soap, lotion, ointment) is suppose to help. Please educate meee!!
