Use pure oils without any added fragrance or any chemicals. Try using Coconut oil or almond oil or olive oil or specially formulated baby oil as these oils are safe and are easily absorbed by baby’s skin. Avoid using excess of oil as this can make your baby’s body very slippery and may clog baby’s skin pores. Use minimal amount that can help you to massage baby gently. Always massage in room which is warm and not too cold. Switch off the air-conditioning of the room and keep baby warm and comfortable. If your baby's skin is getting dry, give baby bath with warm water, use less of soap and do not dry baby’s body completely. Do not keep baby in water for too long. Apply baby cream while the skin is slightly wet to keep it soft and supple. If skin gets very dry apply baby cream 2-3 times in a day. Dress your baby in light cottons and loose clothes in summers to allow air to pass through.
