Q. Hi Ma , What is the correct way of massaging my newborn baby ?

Nervous Mom


Hi Nervous Mom, Don’t be too nervous!

You will soon get a hang of massaging and bathing your baby and become a pro at it. Don’t rub your baby till the baby is atleast 1 month old. Till then, you can make a small ball of atta (wheat flour dough) , dip it in the oil you want to use for massaging. It can be anything from mustard oil, olive oil , almond oil, coconut oil or commercially available mineral oils. though it recommended to use edible oils. Gently roll this dough ball over your baby’s body, dipping in oil occasionally. Once done, bathe your baby in warm water.

For a baby over 1 month, you can massage using your hands with gentle strokes.
