Infant Massage

Infant Massage

According to Parents Magazine, massaging your baby “… is a great way to bond with baby. What’s more, researchers are finding that massage may promote better sleeping, relieve colic, and perhaps even enhance an infant’s immune system, motor skills, and intellectual development.”

Learn how to massage your baby and begin that bonding process. (For Mom and Dad and Baby)
