one thing...my pedi and allergist both said that J&J is SUPER drying. so if your kiddo has sensitive or dry skin to begin with the lotion is terrible to use. I can use it on my DD but it was terrible for my DS (the one with ezcema)
We did massages every night for the first 9 months or so--until DS would no longer sit still for them! I still try, but he doesn't usually let me give a good one. He still apparently remembers the songs we sang during massages though--just 2 nights ago I sang one that I had not sang since before 9 months old, and he got this big smile like he knew. Melted my mommy heart. :)
