5 Best Natural Baby Massage Oil in India

By Dr.jenifer Sayyed @SayyedJenifer

During childhood, when the midwife used to come to massage my baby brother, he cried all the time and I hated it to the core and wept along with him. I asked my mother why you are making my little brother cry and she use to say, so that he becomes healthy and strong just like you. Of course, I was not convinced because my brother tears mattered most but, I couldn’t stop it, so I started avoiding that baby massage time and use to go outside and play.

With time and growing old and then during medical college days, I started to understand that traditionally baby massage is good for baby’s overall growth, but it is not that much necessary and medically not much benefit. In fact, my doctor friend who is a child specialist informed me that massage oil is meant for preventing skin dryness and providing relaxation which should be applied gently esp. in infants so that they don’t get irritable.

Still, if you want to go for the traditional method of massage, there is no harm until your baby starts to cringe enough to control.

Now the second most essential thing is which baby massage oil should be used? Many brands claim that they are natural and safe, but how to decide which to choose for your newborn skin which is highly sensitive?

Do not worry; check out the following points which Parents should look at in the product.

  • Hypoallergenic
  • 100% natural
  • Completely safe
  • Free from toxins or chemicals
  • No harmful side-effects

*NOTE: Always test any new skin product on your baby’s skin by doing a patch test on the forearm for any allergies before using it.

Considering the above criteria, I have curated the 5 best natural baby massage oil available in India.
