My mother in law is forcing me to use pure mustard oil on my baby's body and head. Everyone in my family is saying that if I dont use mustard oil, my baby will catch cold and fever quickly in his whole life. My son is 2 months old. But my child-specialist doctor has forbidden me to use. What should I do?

I wouldn't advise you to go against your doctor's suggestions. There are many such things passed on from the generations but I don't think so whether using mustard oil on head would have an impact on the child's entire life. Hope this helps. Take Care
