“We also provide a range of family support services, including breast pump loan, hospital to home volunteer programme, family activity groups, support for dads,  baby massage and baby sensory."

“The skin of prem babies is extremely sensitive, making it prone to dryness and itchy skin conditions like rashes and eczema, so knowing a clinically proven, completely ‘free from’ product is available can alleviate worry about what to use.”

The Gardiner family’s apothecary skincare creams were created in Newry over 80 years ago. Elave Baby, now produced in Co Louth, is available from local pharmacies, online at WWW.ELAVESKINCARE.COM or via Amazon.  A donation of £1 from every Baby Essentials Pack sold goes to support the work of TinyLife.
