Sheetal Rai

maalish you can start. but make sure that the room is well heated. I use mustard oil and put aijwain, methi, crushed garlic in it. don't take ur baby out immediately after maalish and bathing or sponging.

Please do the massage yourself and gently. Avoid using any oil on the face. Keep the room warm and use very little oil just enough to lubricate your own hand. Baby should enjoy the massage and not cry thru the process.
