I love to make little oatmeal puffs for my girlfriends who have recently had a baby. These are great to soothe new baby skin and help reduce eczema itch. You can always grind the oatmeal and add directly to the bath, but I find adding organic steel cut oats into cheese cloth keeps mess to a minimum. I usually cut an extra strip of cheese cloth to tie up the top of the puff instead of a rubber band.
Don't forget to squeeze the oats to help distribute. Besides, a puffball of oats is fun to squeeze like a stress ball once it is in water. You can watch the water turn opaque.
When the baby turns 3 months I add a drop or two of lavender oil on to the puff.
Relaxing and soothing!
