Why are you putting oil on your baby? That just baffles me. I've never even put baby oil on a baby. Can't imagine why anyone would want to grease up their kid. Smooth baby skin is slippery enough already.....

I double what Little Miss has said. Take it from someone who's family has been well affected by skin cancers!!!!!!!

Use the highest SPF sunscreen you can. Oil is the absolutely the WORST thing to put onto anyones skin.

I live in a country where we have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world and we didn't know it when I was growing up. I had my first skin cancer cut out when I was 21!!!!! Don't damage your child's skin for life.

STOP using ANY oils in the sun. Use sun screen. You are going to get your babies skin terribly burned. And making her future bright with skin cancer. Use baby lotion after baths, and use sunscreen with wicked high spf in the sun. She is a baby. She doesn't NEED glowing skin. She already HAS beautiful baby glowing skin. *shaking my head*. Unreal.

Could it be an olive oil with fake coloring in it? It could be the coloring that is causing problems.
