As a new and first time mother every woman wonders about how, when and with what to massage her little baby. Some of us prefer the age old tradition of massaging the baby just before bath with mustard/coconut/olive oil while others prefer using baby oils from popular brands to massage. The best oil, time of massage and duration are variables dependent on the weather and your baby’s skin. So this post is about the basics of baby massage and the type of oil you should opt for. To me massaging my baby is a great time to play, get to know and bond with my baby. I started massaging my little one after he was one month old. It has been a learning experience for me since then. While internet is flooded with information about baby massage here are some of the things I learned from my own experience which might be useful to the Rookie Moms Guide To Baby Massage.
So this is Rookie Moms Guide To Baby Massage.
