Baby skin know-how

How to keep your baby's skin in tip-top condition


Your baby has such lovely soft skin, but it’s also very delicate. We show you how to keep it in tip-top condition


Heady days

You don’t need to wash your baby’s hair every day – an ‘as needed’ basis is fine. When shampooing, use a mild product for babies. Young babies often get cradle cap – harmless yellow scaly patches on the scalp. Massage olive oil into the affected area, or use a special shampoo to loosen the dry skin
