Babies have their baths on Devi Sivas limbs as its safer instead of the bath tub.

Newborn Raeshman Ray Sundran is all fragile limbs and tender flesh, but Devi Siva handles him effortlessly and confidently as she rubs gingelly oil all over his tiny body. She deftly massages him, cooing to him as she crosses his arms and legs. Raeshman is content as Devi soothes him with her warm and sure touches.

“The massage improves blood circulation and helps baby sleep better. It’s best to use homemade coconut oil or gingelly oil that contain no preservatives. Plus, it’s gentle on baby’s skin,” says Devi, as she gently strokes the bridge of Raeshman’s nose, in the belief it will give him a higher nasal bridge.
