A nourishing organic baby oil, rich in linoleic fatty acids from sunflower and starflower, to soften your baby’s skin, protect their delicate skin barrier and clear cradle cap. Starflower (borage) with its high content of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) has been shown to be particularly beneficial. The addition of coconut oil softens the blend and gives a gentle natural coconut aroma making it ideal for massage. Our pump cap makes dispensing easy.

Warm in your hands before sharing a lovely massage with your baby. For cradle cap gently massage half a teaspoon of oil on the scalp twice a day for two weeks. Leave for at least fifteen minutes before gently combing or brushing to remove any softened flakes. Thereafter use three times a week. Use Baby Bath when needed to clean excess oils from the hair.

Meet Nom Nom - London, UK

I have had the pleasure of providing nutritional advice, massage, pregnancy massage, baby massage classes and weaning workshops for over a thousand women and their babies and Nom Nom has been inspired by them and developed with their feedback.

It became clear from talking to my clients that while they were as keen as me to avoid potentially harmful and irritating ingredients, especially during pregnancy and for their babies, they were confused about which skin care products were truly natural and organic. They also needed products which were gentle, effective, practical and a pleasure to use.

This inspired me to develop Nom Nom using my background, experience and specialist knowledge from training, research and my love of making natural skincare.

Massage:
The legs are a good place to introduce baby massage. Begin by warming Baby Oil in your hands before holding your baby’s ankle with one hand. With your other hand around the top of their thigh, fingers on top and thumb underneath, stroke down towards the ankle. In a smooth transition swap hands at the ankle so the opposite one supports. Place your free hand at the top of the thigh and repeat in a flowing motion. Keep your fingers close together as you massage.

Massage can be enjoyed any time of day but make sure you are both ready, your baby calm and alert and you not feeling rushed. Avoid massaging when your baby is hungry or unsettled, has a temperature or seems unwell and over skin that has cuts, sores, recent bruising or is inflamed. Try to make eye contact, speak and, if you like, sing to your baby as you massage.

Nutrition :
If your baby has cradle cap some dietary interventions may help. One possible cause of the condition is fungal infection so if you or your baby has had antibiotics or you otherwise suspect a fungal component and are still breastfeeding:

Try to avoid refined sugars which feed yeasts

Include live bio yoghurt

Supplement your diet with an acidophilus supplement

Babies can also be given an infant specific supplement containing bifidus infantis.

Poor intestinal flora may lead to biotin insufficiency as this B vitamin is manufactured by the good bacteria in our intestines. This vitamin is needed by the body for the metabolism of essential fats and has a role in promoting healthy skin, hair and nerves.

The richest dietary sources of biotin are liver and egg yolks but it is also found in meat, dairy and wholegrains. Avoid foods using raw egg, such as homemade mayonnaise, as this contains a protein which binds biotin making it unavailable for absorption.

As cradle cap is also an inflammatory condition include sources of essential fatty acids (from fish or cold pressed oils) to encourage the production of anti inflammatory prostaglandins.
