Hi Reshmee, your concern for your baby is genuine and understandable. I want to assure you that dryness, sometimes accompanied by cracking or peeling of the skin, is common, especially in the postmature newborn. All you need to do is keep your baby hydrated. Humidification of room sometimes helps especially in coming months. Avoid exposure to dry air. Any good moisturizer is helpful. Having said, all that I want to put a word of caution, sometimes certain skin conditions like eczema, ichthyosis etc. may mimic this. So do discuss this with your pediatrician in your next visit. Hope I was helpful.
