The Doctors meet Edder and Daniella, parents of three children. Their middle child, Lucus, has eczema and it hurts them to watch him suffer. He has been prescribed creams and medications but he will sometimes have flare-ups of itchy, dry, painful patches.
Dermatologist Sonia Batra acknowledges that eczema is a challenging condition and she along with OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry share some tips on how to hopefully prevent skin irritations in Lucas, as well as in Daniela's new baby.
- Use scent-free and dye-free laundry detergent
- Wash the baby's clothing separately from the rest of the family's
- Put Lucus and the baby in soft clothing, preferably made from cotton
- Change diapers often to prevent diaper rash
- Keep diapers off for short periods of time
- Use baby wipes that are alcohol-free and unscented
Daniela expresses her biggest challenge with Lucas' eczema is finding plant-based products that won't cause him a rash but are also not too expensive. Daniela and her husband are on a tight budget so worry this may not be possible. Dr. Nita notes this is a common concern with parents; on average, the first year of a child's life can cost over $17,000! It turns out, a celebrity couple has the solution.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are the founders of Hello Bello, the baby product line that uses plant-based ingredients at an affordable price. They don't want parents to have to decide what is best for their kids or best for their budget. Hello Bello allows them to have it all!
The Doctors' Executive Producer, Jay McGraw, is a co-founder of Hello Bello, but The Doctors have Kristen and Dax explain in their video messages all about their products!
Hello Bello is gifting Daniela and Edder with diapers for both their children as long as they need them and a monthly delivery for one year of an assortment of Hello Bello baby products!
