Normal olive oil or almond oil is good for the first few weeks and what the midwives advised, then we moved onto Weleda baby products (can buy from waitrose) which are gorgeous and very gentle. Waitrose bottom butter is good too (it's just olive oil, vitamin e and vanilla).

Johnsons and johnsons used to give my baby a rash but I changed to simple products which doesn't affect baby.also,after a bath and before bed I used sunflower oil which is advised to use in baby massage or I use aqueous cream x
