You don’t need fancy equipment, a special room, or lots of free time to give your baby a great massage. Let’s face it. Moms are busy people. Here are just a few ideas for good times to massage your baby:
Work massage into your daily routine:
Give a massage before or after your baby’s nap.
Give a massage before or after your baby’s bath.
Take your baby into the bathtub with you and massage him while you bathe.
Massage your baby on the changing table after a diaper change.
Offer a massage while you’re talking on the phone or watching TV.
Massage your baby while you are wearing her in a sling.
Give your baby a massage whenever you have some extra time — even a few minutes — on your hands:
Offer a quick massage while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store.
Massage your baby when you go on a picnic.
Calm your baby down at the doctor’s office by using massage techniques.
Keep your baby happy when you fly on an airplane by using massage.
Pass the time during a long car ride by massaging your baby in his car seat (while someone else is driving, of course!).
