Babies simply love to be touched. In fact, they thrive on it — it's a critical part of growth and development. All that skin-to-skin contact not only helps you and your baby bond, but is comforting when she's upset and soothing when she's irritable.
For a simple baby massage, find a warm, flat surface to lay your baby on — a blanket on a carpeted floor is fine. Pour a little baby oil or vegetable oil in your palms and rub your hands together to warm them and the oil. Look into your baby's eyes, and sing or talk to her as you do the massage.
Pay attention to your baby's response: If she doesn't seem to be enjoying herself, try a lighter or heavier touch, or simply stop. No need to know about special strokes, either. All she needs is your gentle touch.

Anyway I usually massage my baby after bath or change his diaper. I choose to use either telon or yu yu oil depending on his condition. But if his stomach got wind I straightly put yuyi oil around his stomach and his legs. Like iris, zafri also love to be massaged either by me or hubby. But I will make sure we took a small quantity of it and usually it works best on all my babies. No more cry!
Since yuyi oil is quite expensive and I have to import from Malaysia, I try to consume it wisely. Hence, it reminds me to put it in the wishlist as we are running out of it! Then will convey the wishlist to my mom via phone because mom is gonna post a ramadhan and syawal parcel.:)
