Brief Answer: Relax Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. Color of the baby skin is not related to breastfeeding. Relax. You have to continue breast feeding as it is very much important for your baby's body and brain. XXXXXXX products are generally safe but may not suit to all babies . I would usually prescribe syndet soaps like tedibar for such babies in my clinic. Give him vitamin d3 drops and multivitamin drops too which could help . Regards Dr Arun

Brief Answer: yes you can Detailed Answer: You can use the soap your doctor has prescribed . You can use baby oil or olive oil for massage. But it is unlikely that oil massage will improve skin tone. Give her plenty of fruits and vegetables that might help in improving to some extent. Regards Dr Arun
