“BabyBabyOhBaby: Infant Massage” is an entertaining and informative introduction to infant massage, providing a step by step guide with chapters devoted to each part of the body, easy to follow demonstrations, and “real world” examples of mothers and fathers practicing these ancient techniques with their own babies.
Infant massage is a loving way to communicate with your baby, to bond and build trust and confidence for both baby and parent. When you give your baby a massage, you’re showing them just how much you love them, one stroke at a time. We truly believe that massage is a gift that can last a lifetime, building and reinforcing confidence and trust, and showing your brilliant and beautiful baby in the most immediate and meaningful way possible just how much you love them. And after all, in this busy world, what’s more important than that?
Infant massage is not new. We're guessing it came along about the time mothers and fathers held their first baby. So it is not a surprise that a lot of people have a lot to say about the subject. We hope our DVD is just the beginning of your massage experience. We encourage you to look for more resources and to share your experience with others.
Infant massage is easiest with newborns through pre-crawling but appropriate for all ages. This video is a practical guide to infant massage. It is not medical advice. You should review your massage program with your doctor before beginning. Infant massage is not medical treatment or therapy. If your baby shows signs of discomfort or distress during the massage, STOP. Consult with your doctor prior to resuming.
