Overview

The power of touch is real and has been scientifically shown to have remarkable effects. For infants, it encourages relaxation; improves sleep patterns; reduces discomfort from teething, colic, and gas; strengthens digestive systems; and so much more. For parents, it nurtures bonding, increases communication, promotes parenting skills, and actually reduces stress levels. In Massaging Your Baby, massage expert Dr. Elaine Fogel Schneider begins by explaining how and why massage is so beneficial. She then provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide to effective massage techniques.
