Health Issues:Is olive oil making my 1 month baby darker?
2008-03-16
Name: Sneha

Hello, I' m a mother of a one month old baby-boy. I started with the baby massage 20 days back, from my baby' s 10th day. I first used Johnson n Johnson' s babyoil but it didn' t suit my baby... He gained small pimples and a bit rashes with JnJ' s baby oil... And then I was suggested Olive oil by our elders. Have been using the olive oil, the massage session is of 20 minutes generally, and then a kind of bath for by baby by wiping my baby with a small piece of cloth immersed in warm water... Anyway, since last 1 week, I' ve felt a dramatic change in color of by baby.. Initially my baby was charming pink and very fair in complexion... and now he seem to gain severe tanning... I' m not sure if its the olive oil that' s causing this.. but what I have observed is that the tanning seems more severe in the morning times later to massage and sponging than during the evening which is far from the morning tanning schedule..

I' m very much worried as my baby has truly lost that charming glowing pinkish lusture and I' m not sure if my baby' s going to regain it ever.. But I believe nothing is lost much and things can be turned around somehow..Please guide me if its the olive oil that' s causing tanning on my baby... Should I and CAN I switch over to mustard oil or coconut oil or almond oil or sunflower oil at THIS stage when my baby is just 30 days old? Which is the best oil for my baby at THIS stage and for the later stages? Please please help me at the earliest. Thanks a lot in advance.
Best regards, Sneha.

Hi Sneha,
Olive oil would be good to body and it will give some glow to the body also and it is even good for health and only few people will use this oil for cook.

Hi Sneha,
I think the oil which you have used for you might not be some good quality so by that reason only your baby skin color got black.Use good quality oil for your baby.

Hi Sneha,
Olive oil is good for skin and it gives nice glow to the body also.But you have to find the olive oil which is quality ones only.Because they may mix some other lubricants in that.

Hi Sneha,
Olive oil is good for skin and health.But the olive oil which you have used migt not be so pure so that only skin might get some black color.Use which is good quality only.

whatever product you use for your baby,its better if you use with doctor's advise.So it is always beter to consult a pediatricain in case of infants choice. Also before using a product make sure he/she is not allergic to the product that is being used so be careful by doing this.

Hi Sneha.
Are you sure that by using olive oil only baby skin is getting darker and if possible you have to confirm that with the doctor and use any other oils what would doctor suggest to use for baby also.

That' s no oil you can use to try making your baby fairer without gaming him. It depends on the genetics involved. If you are dark yourself or have dark relatives the baby will be dark. Simple. I think you have misplaced priorities. The focus should be on healthy baby skin and not the color.
