We were recommended to try Aquaphor by our pediatrician when our, then 3 month old, developed dry, flaky skin on his back. Since then, every time after bathing him, we applied Aquaphor to his skin, especially to the back, where the problem started. We would wipe him with a towel first, then apply the ointment to his dry skin. We still do it and he seems to like the process.
Not only did the dryness and flakiness go away within a week, we haven't seen it since. We are still using the same Johnson's Head-to-Toe Baby Wash and same washing technique with the same frequency so obviously Aquaphor helped. Not only that, it made our son's skin smoother and softer. It seems to hydrate really well.
