I think with babies, less is more. I use a little Aveeno Baby lotion on her dry scaly legs and feet, but otherwise let her skin be. 

My baby care instructor, a former neonatal nurse who fosters unwanted newborns until they are adoptable, says any edible oil is fine, but she recommends grape seed oil so your baby won’t smell like a salad.

My LO had horrible dry skin on his head, the doctor said to use a little baby oil and leave it on. He sometimes has dry patches on his cheek and tummy, I use liveclean for that and it seems to work. 

I haven’t seen any other types of baby oil besides Johnson’s, so I used that. What brands have others tried?

I don’t use anything extra unless it is needed. When it is needed, I start by adding oil to their bath water first, and use moisturizer (big fan of burts bees and Aveeno baby) if needed. I don’t like putting oil right on them (although I’ve never heard any advice saying otherwise-just don’t like to).
