my baby is just 17 days old and cries a lot while doing massage.. he turns himself red and doesn't enjoy massage and bath at all... I don't want to quit massaging too for its benefits... is it normal?

Kindly try changing the oil and reduce the pressure while doing massage. Sometimes, fragrance of some oil like mustard oil, might irritate them, or it might be too warm for them.
