To massage a baby before his bath is a tradition. Many mothers prefer to use oil though creams and lotions can also be used for the purpose.
Skin conditions in newborn babies are concerns for parents though most of them tend to disappear after a few weeks. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema is the inflammation of the skin and is seen in a baby when he is between 1 to 5 months old.
Sleep in infants is especially important because it affects their growth and development. A baby spends more time sleeping than it does awake, and by the time it is two years old, the baby has spent 40 percent of his childhood sleeping.
