Most babies will enjoy a massage of it is done gently and with a loving hand. Please do not have any outsider do the infant massage. You or your husband can gently massage the baby. Do not undress her completely, start slow with just the arms and legs and as she starts enjoying it move to other body parts. Do not feed her for an hour prior to the massage and avoid vigorous rubbing on the abdomen. A bath with hot water and then drying the baby rapidly will not cause a cold. It will make her feel fresh.
