A multidisciplinary approach of neonate and newborn hygiene and skin care

Infant skin before 2 years is immature. Multiple actors are involved in babies skin care, with different backgrounds and unique relationships with parents. That’s why this first multidisciplinary conference on babies ‘skin was organized.
Nine specialists have exchanged their experiences on neonate and young children skin cares. Objectives were to define each specialist basic knowledge, specific needs/approach and to design an integrated skin care program.
The conference was divided in 10 topics: infant skin; skin types; premature skin; vernix role; neonate hygiene; older children hygiene; neonate skin care; older children hydration; diaper dermatitis; atopic children.
