the blessing of vernix

Every newborn comes into the world with that milky white substance covering the skin.  Many parents are happy to have baby bathed immediately or soon after birth and placed in a warm blanket.  It's important to understand nature's design.  Mother Nature protects the baby with the vernix caseosa.  This waxy looking substance is an extremely effective natural skin oil.  Most babies suffer dry skin after birth, which causes irritation and signs of dehydration.  

The verix is a natural moisturizer, a wound healer, a cleanser, an anti-oxidant and contains antimicrobials that protect your vulnerable little one from becoming sick.  Allow your baby to enjoy this blessing and feel free to prolong the first bath.  Your baby's skin will be healthier and you will also be protecting and building the immune system.
