    When Harry had dry skin we were advised to use olive oil and it worked a treat.
    Just the stuff you cook with, rub a bit on and leave it to soak in

    Morrisons own brand olive oil!!

    Harrison had awful peeling sick on his hands, feet and legs. I've used the oil 3 times and it's practically gone :)

    Apparently the olive oil penetrates all layers of the skin, were as the baby oil products just sit on top of the first layer, and although they smell nice that don't actually help with treating dry skin etc.

    I usually rub harrison down on a night time after his bath. I then put mits on his hands as he has a habit of sticking his hands in his mouth.

    It can't hurt them even if they do suck on there hands, but i don't see the point in putting it on if he's gonna suck off! Lol

    Another one here who recommends olive oil! Boots sell little bottles of it if you don't use it for cooking.

    The HV recommended that I purchase a big tub of expensive cream...wish I hadn't listened to her - it was greasy and smelt disgusting :-(

    Waitrose olive oil (at a quarter of the price!) did the trick in the end - we massaged this into JJ every night for a week after his bath and his dry skin disappeared! xx
