We have Johnson and Johnson night time lotion and what-not for our 6
month old boy, and as of late I have been wanting to stop putting it
on him for fear of the chemicals in it being absorbed into his body
and bloodstream, giving him hormonal issues, skin issues, etc.

Am i being paranoid? He doesn't have dry skin, sometimes his cheeks
feel a TINY TINY bit dry, but that's it really.

We also like giving him massages with it too.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you are being paranoid. It's BABY lotion, so it's made for babies.

I personally would say that the concern is a little on the paranoid
side. I have been using Johnson and Johnson night time bubble bath and
lotion with my two (four and two) for a year now. Before that I always
used Johnson's baby lotion on them, even as infants, to give them a
little massage at the end of the day. Neither of mine have experienced
any problems with it.

I've never heard anythng about it - like Jamie says, it;s baby lotion. I
don't use it as I didn't find it helped my DD's dry skin. I used olive oil,
and still do, I find it fantastic - and natural. I use baby bath & shampoo,
but that's all, I don't use talc or anything else on her skin. She doesn't
get nappy rash, and only once had a tiny patch of eczema. Olive oil worked
well in conjunction with hydrocortisone on that too!

Hi, no you aren't paranoid you just love your baby and are using your
brain in regards to how you care for him. I can suggest Weleda
Calendula oil, I use it for nappy changes, massage, and my midwife
suggested it for bath oil instead of soap. Just be careful it makes
baby even more slippery to hold on to when wet! I use it for my own
moisturiser too. You can buy it from chemists (drug stores I guess if
you are American). It has a lot of edible oils in it, which is better
than mineral oils which can be in a lot of Johnsons stuff. For baby
products they can be a bit harsh. Over here in New Zealand we also
have a nice brand called Eco store, see if there is anything like that
in your hometown.
