should i bath my baby first n then do the massage with oil ? my son is 5 month old Ola advice

You should first do the oil massage then bathe the baby. You can apply a lotion or moisturizer after bath.

Always massage oil and bathe the baby. do not let oil remain on the body. u can use baby moisturiser post bathing.

Massage the baby and then bathe. However would suggest not applying anything after a bath for a while as the pores of the skin which have been cleaned during the bath can be allowed to breathe. This helps the skin to get natural oxygen. Lotions and powder block the pores.
