Caring for your baby

Today you discovered some small yellow patches on your baby's lovely head? This is cradle cap. We’ll tell you everything you need to know to master the subject.


The day your baby is born, his skin is brutally thrust into a completely new environment.


An excellent source of relaxation and well-being, massage has many benefits for your baby.


Your baby needs to be cleaned several times a day in addition to his daily bath: after diaper change and meals.


The daily bath is an important time for your baby: in addition to keeping him clean, it helps develop his sensory perception. It's also a special part of the day you can share together.


Your baby’s Nappy needs to be changed up to 7 or 8 times a day. An infant’s very delicate little bottom can easily become irritated from dampness, contact with urine and stools.


Up until age 3, your child’s skin is delicate and immature: it has few defenses against harsh elements (cold, wind, sun, dry air, etc.).


Atopic eczema is an increasingly common skin problem that leads to extreme dryness, itchiness and skin discomfort that can be intense.


Your baby’s skin has a wealth of unique cell potential, but it is also delicate and undeveloped: it doesn’t yet function as a complete protective barrier.


The nappy area’s very delicate skin can easily become irritated, especially during the baby’s first year of life. Up to 60% of infants are affected during the first 12 months.


During the first few weeks of life, babies may have small yellowish crusty patches, greasy to the touch, on their scalp or top of their face. This is “cradle cap”.


Your baby’s skin is rich in potent cells that are at their maximum strength at birth. This unique and precious resource is also extremely vulnerable.


Sunlight is essential, and we all love to enjoy the sun because it has a major effect on our mood. Plus, we synthesise Vitamin D - which is essential for good health - from the sun’s rays.


The sun emits rays which penetrates through our skin. Although these rays are vital for our health, they can also have harmful effects.


Until they reach age 3, infants do not have a fully developed skin defense system, which leaves them highly vulnerable to the sun’s rays. As a result, doctors strongly recommend that young children be kept out of direct sunlight.
