Always massage baby daily with oil and leave atleast half an hour...
Coconut oil - Suits everyone and all kinds of skin.
olive oil - It's good for dry skin and if baby will lick or keep hand in mouth.
and castor oil - If skin is sensitive or too dry.
Atleast give castor oil massage once a week. ( and when you are free).
Careful while lifting small baby after massage...as chances of slipping from hands.
Keep massage time long and bathing time short. Max within 10 mins bathing should be done. And use moisturiser immediately after drying baby within 2-3 mins of bath. This will be ideal to apply moisturiser as skin will be fresh,clean, dry and pores open. This will ensure max benefit from moisturiser.
whenever you wipe, wash baby hands, mouth or bum...apply coconut oil or moisturiser.
