Your baby's skin can be quite sensitive to the environment, however it will soon develop its effective defence barrier and acquire an immune system.When your baby is born their skin is sterile and will be colonised by the bacteria closest to them.This is one of the reasons why skin-to-skin is so important,as your baby can gain their first colonisation of friendly bacteria from you.It is also important to bath your baby infrequently to prevent their skin being stripped of its naturally developing oils.
