I'm joined by Kate Sandoval Box. Kate you're a new mom. What tips do you have for other new mothers out there.

"Right, so I want to talk about our baby's skin. The weather is shifting from Summer to Fall. As the temperature drops, our skin can get dry, which is really hard on little ones. In fact, ten percent of infants in the U.S. have some form of eczema - and you may not realize that at first because eczema looks different on babies than it does adults.

So it's so important to know what to look for and treat it correctly. Baby's eczema appears as red, dry, patchy spots on the face - specifically the cheeks, chin, forehead and scalp. And then as your baby grows, the eczema moves to the creases of the elbows and the knees. And it's emotional to see, but I'm here to tell you there are easy ways to help.

My big advice is to start using Cetaphil Baby Eczema products. It's the brand recommended by dermatologists and pediatricians more than any other brand. The reason I like it is because it's clinically proven to calm dry itchy skin, and to give your little one long lasting relief. My favorite products are the wash and the lotion - both are safe for babies three months and older. I use the wash when I give my son a bath, and I pat him down, and I put the lotion on immediately afterward. It traps the moisture into the skin and makes a difference.

Now, the other thing I want to talk about is something for the new moms out there. A lot of us suffer from bladder leakage after childbirth and it's unfortunate and uncomfortable, but it can be less so thanks to a special technology called the Dri-Fit system in certain incontinence and feminine products.

So here's why it's cool. It's the first line of natural and synthetic fibers which is key to ensuring you feel natural no matter what. The natural cotton absorbs moisture, and the synthetic fibers make you feel more dry.

When you're a new mom and you're exhausted, shopping for this frankly can be overwhelming - but all you have to remember is to look for the Dri-Fit logo store brand incontinence and feminine products at all major retailers. And you can also visit madewithdrifit.com for more information."

Kate those were some great tips, thank you so much for joining us this morning.

"Thank you for having me."
