The Use of Oils.
It is preferable to massage with a good quality vegetable oil. Sunflower, sweet almond or grapeseed are recommended. Vegetable oils are golden in colour.
It is not advisable to use a mineral oil for massaging, check the label before you buy. Mineral based oils are usually completely clear and colourless. These oils tend to clog the pores of the skin and become quite sticky when used for massaging.
Pump top bottles, which are available from many outlets, provide an easy to use and non spill solution while massaging your baby.
