ANy recommendation where I can get baby massage at a reasonable price or learn baby massage
if you want, you can do it yourself. dont have to go for any classes. For me, i learn it the basic and massage my darling every nite. Now, it has become a bonding time for both.
Step 1: Legs
Rub your hands till they are warm
'Pull' from the thighs down to the feet, like you're milking them
Rub the soles
Gently pull the toes one by one (usually when i count, he will smile at me)
Step 2: Arms
'Pull' from the shoulders down to the hands
Rub the palms
Gently pull the fingers one by one
Step 3: Stomach
Using your palms, gently rub the stomach in circular motions
Step 4: Back
Using your palms, stroke from the top to the bottom
Cup your palms slightly and tap the baby's back
Step 5: Face
Using your thumbs, stroke the eyebrows from the inside to the outside
Move on to stroke the cheeklines around the nose
Continue to the jaw, stroking from the chin to the ears
Got this basic instructions from fellow forum member and it's very useful!
