I've always read not to put things like that on a newborn as they could have an allergy. The most natural thing to put on is Olive oil, but other good ones are baby oil or the new johnsons's baby soothing naturals moisturising cream.

almond oil should be fine for a baby's skin as is a natural product, I probably wouldn't advise baby oil purely because it's a mineral oil and just sit's on the surface of the skin without giving any real benefit (sorry used to be a beauty therepist and baby oil was a pet hate of mine) I agree through olive oil is idea and very good for loosening cradle cap

completely agree, baby oil is horrible!

Olive oil is lovely but the smell is a bit off putting. Almond oil can be a problem if there is an alergy to Almonds, I personally am alergic to Almonds and anything containing almond oil brings me out in a rash, I coulnd't use it a college at all!

When I massage I use this one

It's Soya Bean and Wheatgerm oil and is very good for reliving dry skin, in fact I have been using this on my tummy because I think it will help with stretch marks, I've noticed since I started using it a week ago my skin is no longer itching.

aqueous cream is amazing! in fact I'm staring at a tube as I type! never used it for massage tho, I use it when I've had to dry someones skin to hell using 99% alcohol to remove prosthetics and wigs!! But yeah I can definately see how it would work with cradel cap!! Nice one Huntermac!! Cool

Great for dry skin, Hunter has dermatitis (spelling Laughing ) and a form of exma (again spelling!!) and Aqueous has been great. Use it as a soap substitute and as a moisturiser too. Very gentle on the skin and a VERY low chance of an allergy developing. Wait to see the skin on your hands from using it too Very Happy Wouldnt recommend anything else. Very Happy
