Just you and me, babe - Infant Massage
Start Date: 04/02/2015
End Date: 04/03/2015
Who: All babies 0-9 months (pre-crawling) are welcome to attend.
Why: Infant massage can: promote parents' ability to read their baby's non-verbal cues; support baby's healthy psychosocial development; help with baby's sleep or settling; strengthen secure attachment and the bond between parent and child; relieve colic and tummy troubles; and stimulate the digestive, respiratory and immune systems.
The course adheres to the First Touch Program developed by the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM), a research-based program now taught in 52 countries worldwide.
The program is baby-centred and cue-based, with the first priority being the relationship between parent and baby. It's a great way for Dads to get involved and bond with baby!
What to expect: A small group (max. 6-8 babies) with lots of time for individual attention and support. Meet other parents and discuss common challenges, issues - and triumphs! Baby's needs come first, so you will be encouraged to feed, change, soothe or cuddle your baby as needed.
What to bring: A waterproof mat, towel and change of nappy. We will be on the floor, so it is advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Cost: $200 includes bottle of organic massage oil, handouts and lots of individual support and attention
