    For the in between times...

    I teach infant massage. My books were in storage from a move and I needed a book right away. This is an updated book from the ones that I have and I trust the author. I was more than happy to give my new mom this book so that she could have something to refer back to in between classes. The book arrived in tip top condition, as always and in a very speedy fashion. Thanks B & N.... you never let me down!

    Great for gas!

    Our son was very 'gassy' for the first 6 weeks. These techniques helped when little else would! Plus, it gave us something practical to do when our little one seemed so unhappy. Highly recommend
