What to expect from your baby’s skin in the first year

Mother massaging baby's skin

In the first year of life, your baby’s skin is soft, supple and sensitive. It will also, probably, have a lot of rashes.

Sarah Hunstead is a former emergency paediatric nurse and founder of CPR Kids, an organisation that teaches first aid for the parents and carers of children.

She talks about common rashes you will see in the first year of your bub’s life, and when you need to take your baby to see a doctor.
