In brief: No

Baby oil is not a good choice as a personal lubricant.
Over time this may cause irritation to the genital skin. Additionally, the oil weakens latex condoms; therefore, making them less effective at preventing unintended pregnancy and stds. Try to find a water based lubricant that is designed for intimate use.
