(HealthDay News) -- Proper care of baby's clothes can help prevent skin irritation and keep baby's skin clear and soft.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:

  • Wash all new clothes, bibs and other accessories before baby wears them for the first time.
  • If it's easier, wash baby's clothes with the rest of the family's laundry and skip the special baby detergent. However, if baby has sensitive skin, use a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free detergent.
  • Promptly rinse out stains and use a stain remover to get rid of marks from formula, spit-up or breast milk.
