Baby massage oil

During face to face classes I provide cold pressed organic sunflower oil as this is what is recommended as the ideal agent for baby massage. However while this isn’t possible during zoom sessions I can suggest the following alternatives.

NHS recommends not using any oil before 4-6 weeks old.

-Organic sunflower oil (available from Tesco)

-Any natural plant based oil

-Any baby massage oil you have at home

-It is also perfectly fine to do massage over a thin layer of clothes without the use of any oil at all.

The use and choice of oil on your baby is at your discretion and if you are in any doubt seek the advice of your health care professional or simply massage without the use of oil.
