u know my dd forehead covered by small hairs when she was born n it was there around 4-5 months but its getting reduce by itself... I guess its really very early to worry about unwanted hair :)... continue ur oil massage nothing else needed as of now... if u mention about turmeric to any Dr they would advice u stop since it darkens the skin n baby may develop some kind of allergy.. I am a fan of homemade items for babies... but until my dd is 3 or so I won't risk doing any skin applications except oil massage... its all my opinion but applying anything on baby please consult a Dr or a person knowledged about it.. take care :)

thank u boovathi.. I have started using almond oil more over malai & turmeric.. I'm using turmeric in order to remove her unwanted hair on the body..

its early to use turmeric mix on baby... any natural oil for massage is fine.. as they grow their skin may get dry due to various reasons like clothing .. water etc... as long as skin is healthy don't worry about the fairness now... any other rashes consult a paed
