My baby also used to cry.. He just hated getting oil applied! Now he has given up just lays down and enjoys.. guess he thought no use resisting, mommy's gonna do it anyway..😁 Jokes apart, sing and distract him, talk with him while massaging.. See if he cries when oil massaging particular spots, like my baby was most irritated if oil was applied on face... Try different techniques and see what works best.. we all learn something new from the baby each day...


Heya. So you can massage ur baby only after sometime because pressure on baby's belly will lead to expelling of milk. Please ensure u hold ur child upright for sometime and is possible burp him.
