By Logan Lafferty

Bathing a baby and caring for the newborn's skin can intimidate new parents, an expert says. Newborns are small, vulnerable and slippery when wet, and finding products marketed for their delicate skin can be a challenge, too, said Dr. Dawn Davis, a pediatric dermatologist at the Mayo Clinic Children's Center in Rochester, Minn. Writing in the January issue of theĀ International Journal of Dermatology, Davis offered some advice for making bath time an enjoyable experience and for keeping a newborn's skin clean and healthy.
