my cousin had a baby recently and she's on her own... she's in US in the east where it is really cold... she's not sure how frequently should she massage her baby.. will massaging everyday be good for the baby in the cold weather although they are inside in heaters... also what is a good duration for the massage?

Massaging is indeed good. half an hour massage is good, she can use JnJ baby massage oil

massage is very good for babies and help in blood circulation. I always prefer Mamaearth's soothing massage oil which is a blend of many natural oils and good for babies. It is easily available everywhere as we can order it online.

Hi massaging with a light non sticky oil like that of Johnsons is a great way to start with. ALso post bath she can apply a good baby cream which will ensure the babies skin dosent dry up. A period of 10-15 months is sufficient .

yes she should massage baby regularly. and she should use only natural products like mamaearth baby massage oil. she should do it before bathing baby and before bed time.

hi vani kulkarni ! yes massaging everyday does help.. she can massage once in a day if possible after taking all necessary precautions like covering her baby well under sheets with heating on. here is a blog with handy tips on the same. 7 to 10 minutes is a good enough durtaion for masssage or depending on baby's comfort level.. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/how-massage-help-baby-grow-better-best-time-and-oils-to-massage-how-to-massage-tips/2677?ptref=sa0l0000j66022d
