As part of my baby massage course I always teach a different relaxation or exercise at the beginning of the class.
It’s great to ground ourselves and relax before we start massaging baby because they are like little sponges and pick up on our emotions so easily.
Often I start with a short meditation to get in the relaxed zone. But sometimes it can be great to start with something more upbeat and fun.
This is one of the exercises that I teach in class. It’s a great way to get a stretch and still have fun with your little one. It stretches out the side of your body giving you more space to breathe.
And babies love eye contact and as they get older they love to grab and play with Mummy’s hair. So give it a go.
Baby massage is a great way to relax with baby.
Baby Massage can aid digestion, help to establish a sleep pattern and assist in alleviating symptoms of colic and constipation.
Here’s an article I wrote about the benefits of baby massage:
Remember you have just given birth to a human, after growing a human.
That is a huge deal even if everyone else is focused on the baby… you need to be gentle and kind with yourself.
So make sure to focus on your recovery and enjoying your little one. Give everything else to someone else, especially when they offer…
Because you deserve it.
