Baby Massage

Developmental Baby Massage with Shambala Yoga.

Developmental Baby Massage for Fathers and their babies.
'Relax the belly, Relax the Baby.'

Petra will promote a lot of tummy time with the baby and show the Fathers how to introduce new positions to their baby to make it easier to lay down on their tummy. Playing time on the tummy is a vital stage in baby development, it will help in the relief of wind, re-flux, colic and constipation, promotes a strong back and flexible spines and healthy organs. Tummy time will help the baby breathe deeper, releasing any anxiety around the belly. Developmental baby massage is preparing the baby for good sitting and standing working towards good health and growth.

This 4 week course for babies 8 weeks and older will create a stronger bond between the baby and Father allowing him to handle the baby with more ease and confidence. Massaging will stimulate their circulation and digestive systems encouraging muscular co-ordination and strength. It will help your baby to relax and create better sleeping patterns.  

Holding, stroking and spending time with your baby is beneficial for both of you.

Mothers can attend, but the Father gets to do the hands on massage.
The classes are held in a way that there is time for feeding, crying and playing with your baby. Mothers are invited to come along as well.

Venue; Titirangi Community House, 500 South Titirangi Rd, Titirangi.

Cathy's Tip

Baby massage is a wonderful way to get to know your baby. You can massage your baby from birth but often they will cry if they are completely naked. Few tips such as massage there arms and legs to start while they still have clothes on. Use a little oil such as calendula oil and massage the tummy gently at nappy changing time can help expel wind. I find babies who are massage daily in the first 6 weeks are more relaxed, less windy and a lot calmer.
