is oil massage is essential for baby's bone development and skin ?



Shaheen Shaikh

its beneficial however not essential.. there are many countries whr this is not practiced.. but its really good for the physical development if the baby.. a good oil massage followed by a hot water bath ensures a minimum 2 hours long sleep spell

Priya Sood

Not necessary but it does benefit muscle and bones

Its also great for bonding with the baby. A massage can be great fun time for baby too.

Is olive oil is safe for new born ?

Sonali Shivlani

Movement of the joints and body parts creates a form of exercise which is good for bone mineralization. The massage should be gentle and enjoyable for the baby. Any oil is fine as long as it suits the baby's skin.
