You can give her bath but see to it that the water doesn't goe in the eyes ears and nose. Light body massage with coconut oil can be given by mother herself. See to it that the oil is not instilled in ears nose and umbilicus . Thank you Dr Aditi Birje MD PEDIATRICS KEM HOSPITAL MUMBAI SHREE Gurumaauli Pediatric Clinic Yogi Nagar Borivali West
