Brief Answer:
Not recommended

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.

No baby massage or application of any oil is recommended. This is because contrary to popular belief oil is not absorbed through skin. Application of oil is therefore not advised for.

Let me know if I could help further.
