When my son was about two weeks old, his skin went dry and flakey. The doctor prescribed him E45 cream which hydrated his skin and moisturised it so it was lovely and soft again.
He prescribed the great big pot for him, and I started to use it on myself as a moisturiser and cleanser. If your child has dry skin, the doctor should be able to prescribe the cream, and also the emoilient to go in the bath water and the creme wash in a pump dispenser that you can use on their bodies instead of soap.
My son is now almost 4 and I still use it on him from time to time if he get a few dry patches. I use it on myself all the time, and is great for hard skin on your feet.
You can also use E45 cream for more serious skin conditions. It doesn't smell horrible and isn't at all greasy. E45 bath emolient is greasy, it leaves a horrible greasy scum all over the bath, but wipes off with your normal bath cleaner.
