Recommended Products for Toddlers with KP: 2 – 4 years

Our toddlers become more mobile and independent every year, and managing the health of their skin becomes very important during these busy years.

But how do you care for their still tender skin at this age?

Toddlers with Keratosis Pilaris | www.kpkids.netStart a daily routine.

The better they know what to expect in bathing and moisturizing their skin, the more independent (and less bothered!) they feel about your frequent attention to their skin. Establishing a consistent routine will help your child know what to expect and will help you remember to apply moisturizers or limit bath time.

Simple things like daily routine boards and reward charts are a great way of encouraging your child to establish good habits.

The more consistent you can be with your skin care and bathing routine, the more relaxed your toddler will be with your continued attention to their skin.


Keep their skin moisturized.

Apply a moisturizing lotion or cream often during the day. Keep your favorite lotion or cream near your diaper-changing area to remind you to reapply a light layer of lotion after each diaper change.

I always loved having a diaper caddy (or diaper-changing basket) nearby stocked with all the diapers, lotions or creams I would need. It was easy to move from room to room, and held enough supplies to last about a week. As your toddler transitions into potty-training, these baskets/caddies are great for holding extra flushable wipes and extra pairs of toddler underwear.

These are some of my favorites…


Keep trying until you find something that works.
