Once the umbilical cord stump has fallen off and baby’s belly button has healed, it’s finally time for the first bath. From then on, twice a week, baby’s skin can benefit from water heated to 37ºC and 2–3 squirts of this mild, nurturing bath oil. Happy splashing in the tub!
My tip as a midwife is that your baby will usually feel tired after a bath, so evenings are the best time for it.
Cleans and relaxes:
This mild, replenishing bath oil gently cleans and cares for baby’s skin. With rice bran oil and chamomile flower extract, it maintains the natural moisture level.
My midwife tip: Generally speaking, baby will be tired after taking a bath. The ideal bathing time is therefore in the evening.

Parenting can be hard! In the first few weeks of their life, babies often struggle with tummy ache. You can help prevent this with a relaxing tummy massage, applying this calming oil in circular movements.
My tip as a midwife is to warm up the nurturing oil in the palms of your hands and work it in using clockwise motions.
Relaxes and calms:
Nurturing rice bran oil and sesame oil, plus essential oils from star anise, coriander and cardamom support the soothing tummy massage.
In the first few years of life, the sensitive skin of your child’s bottom is often covered by a nappy, which prevents the circulation of fresh air. This nappy cream both cares for the skin and protects it against moisture. It has a preventive effect against redness and inflammation, especially during the night when the nappy is changed less often.
My tip as a midwife is to wash baby’s bottom with warm water between changes and treat it to an air bath.
Protects and soothes:
This nappy barrier cream with the DEFENSIL®-PLUS formula nurtures and soothes baby’s delicate skin and protects it against redness and soreness.
Baby’s delicate skin needs extra care in the cold winter months as it is yet to develop the natural layer of sebum that protects it against cold, wet and windy weather. That’s where our cold and windy weather cream comes in, containing substances that nurture the skin while also stopping it from drying out.
My tip as a midwife is to apply the cold and windy weather cream 30 minutes before any outdoor activities, for optimal protection. In strong sunlight, use a product with a sun protection factor.
Protects and nurtures:
This nurturing cream is easy to smooth in. Thanks to the well tolerated oils and extract of sea buckthorn berry, it protects baby’s skin even if the weather is rainy, cold and wet.
I often say that every touch makes your baby a little smarter. And certainly happier. That’s because physically touching babies creates new synaptic connections in their brain and shows them that they are safe and loved. When you treat yourself and your child to plenty of physical contact and massages, our great body butter is a real help.
My tip as a midwife is to warm the body butter in your hands first,then massage it in using the Indian baby massage technique.
Nurtures and relaxes:
This rich body butter with the DEFENSIL®-PLUS formula even moisturises skin that is prone to neurodermatitis, soothing it and strengthening its natural protective function.
