In India, we start oil massage right from the time baby is born. According to Ayurveda, massage helps in balancing doshas and relaxing baby. Most homes hire a dai to massage baby, it’s a good practice to start massage after baby turns 16 days and continue till 18 months. Massage helps in developing limbs and muscles, improving blood circulation, and clearing the chest.
How to choose the right baby massage oil?
I would suggest you choose a baby massage oil that is mild, from a reputed brand and suitable for all weather conditions. Once baby’s skin gets adapted to the oil, stick to it as changing oils can damage skin. You need massage oil which moisturizes skin, is light and does not clog pores; hence it’s good to avoid ghee and thick oils.
