According to traditional Ayurvedic practices, newborns can begin to receive oil massage (also known as "abhyanga") as early as the first week of life. However, it is always best to consult your paediatrician before starting any new health practice for your baby.
When beginning an oil massage for your newborn, it's important to choose an oil that is gentle and nourishing for their delicate skin. Some common oils used for baby massage include coconut oil, almond oil, and sesame oil. It's also important to warm the oil before applying it to your baby's skin and to use gentle, circular motions while massaging.
It's recommended to choose a time when your baby is relaxed and calm, such as after a bath or before bed. Avoid massaging your baby right after a feeding, as their stomach may be too full and it could cause discomfort. Pay attention to your baby's cues during the massage, and stop if they become upset or uncomfortable.
