After 50 years helping babies with all manner of minor issues, we've learnt all sorts of useful tips.


Teething rings

Some teething rings can be cooled in the fridge, which can really help soothe your baby’s gums.

Healthy options

If they’re older than six months, a piece of raw fruit or vegetable can make a great healthy teething ring.


Keep your baby occupied with games and activities and they’ll find it easier to forget about those tiresome teeth.

A warm bath with a little lavender can be a great way to relieve colic. Try to keep it at around 38°C.


Warm your hands and rub a little baby oil clockwise onto your baby’s tummy to soothe their discomfort.


Keep moving to help distract them and relieve colic. Go for a walk, take a drive or just rock them back and forth.

Cradle cap

Rub in oil

Rub a little olive or baby oil onto your baby’s scalp before putting them to bed. This will help soften the dry skin.

Brush gently

Before washing their hair with baby shampoo, gently brush it with a soft brush to loosen the scale.

Don't pick

Try to avoid the temptation and let the skin clear up on its own. Picking at the scales can lead to an infection.

Sticky eyes

Gently wash

Gently bathe your baby’s eye and help remove sticky liquid with some cotton wool soaked in cooled boiled water.

Wipe away

Always wipe away from the eye and repeat with fresh wipes or cotton wool to keep their eyes clean.

Tip and trickle

Slightly tip your baby’s head towards the eye you’re cleaning. This helps the water trickle away from the eye.
