Just to mosturize : Make sure your doctor knows that you plan to use coconut oil. I believe it won't hurt to put a small amount of coconut oil in your palms and gently massage the infant's skin. Avoid any contact with the child's face especially the eyes. Watch for any signs of skin sensitivity like rash after first use.
