My husband and I took an infant massage class today. By implementing daily massage into our baby’s bath time/bedtime routine we hope to see the following benefits:
Overall infant relaxation and better sleep
Enhanced bonding (for parents and child)
Parents increased awareness of baby’s nonverbal cues
I have also located several books on
Infant Massage at Amazon.com
What are your thoughts on infant massage? What benefits did you experience? Do you have any suggestions on additional resources?
Little Miss Ivey turned 2 weeks old today. I am sure this little dance is probably a result of me providing the world’s worst swaddle however it was so cute I had to capture it.
not only am I officially one of “those moms” that stare at their children while they sleep I also sometimes record it.
It was truly amazing to see the heart beating on the ultrasound but honestly I had to circle it on the picture to make sure I didn’t forget where it was. For now I think I will be referring to him or her as “Peanut”.
