One Thing To Do LESS Often If Your Kid Has Eczema

Got a kid with eczema? Bathe him less often!

Bathing in warm water dries a kid's skin out, which tends to make eczema worse. Babies and children don't necessarily need to be bathed daily, so there's no real medical reason to do this. This is bonus good news for moms, I think: one less task to squeeze into the bedtime routine.
