Olive oil

Use to wash away meconium, the tar-like substance in the first dirty diaper. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on a wipe for clean cheeks.

Clear cradle cap. Put a dab on a dry wash cloth and gently rub to loosen scales. Bonus: Olive oil has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce irritation.

Sooth or prevent diaper rash. Smoothing some over your baby's bottom after a change nourishes tender skin!
