Hi Mala, it's our personal choice on how long we can massage but it's better if we atleast massage twice a day atleast till 2 years.

Hi Charul, it is not suggested to give bath during night time during winters and monsoon. Bath should be given during night in summers that too subjected to conditions.

Hi Akansha, when babies plays a lot and become tired, they want to relax, at the time, u can fix a time when you both can enjoy massage time. Gentle massage over legs, stomach and hands will actually make them feel relaxed. Play light music during that time or sing song so that she is stable for some time.
