Hi, I am using Johnson's baby oil for massaging my baby. Is it effective and safe to use?

The best oil according to me for babies is coconut oil. I have tried commercial oils as well as olive and almond oil for my little one. But the best oil is coconut oil as it suits for almost all the skin type. And during winters you can warm coconut oil and massage the babies. It's a best solution for diaper rash also.

Hi shirin, I basically use Himalaya. So far its good. My boy seems comfortable with it. Usually my doctor has given soap for baby, initially I used that n slowly I started with Himalaya bath n shampoo. N for massage I used Himalaya oil. (Honestly, sometime Himalaya oil gets over, I even massage him with coconut oil :p) All depends on how baby skin react to it.

Better to use sesame seeds oil for massage bcoz their bone will become strong. Always use warm oil don't use hot oil. I think, it's good to apply the oil directly without any warm or hot oil.

Hi Tejal, there is no after effects so far. Which brand are you using for your baby?

My baby was not comfortable with Johnson. Just check whether any products u use r causing any rashes to ur baby or are they happy after using it, if not then its fine for baby.
