Baby Massage

0to19torbay.co.uk/events/

Baby massage is a short course for parents where you can learn how to massage different parts of your baby's body.

Massage can help your baby with the symptoms of colic, aid digestion and regulate their sleep. It is also a great way to relax, have fun and spend quality time together using music, simple songs and nursery rhymes.

This course is suitable for babies between the ages of 3 - 6 months old. As with all of courses there is no charge. At the moment we can only offer baby massage to new mums whose health professional has referred them.

"Just wanted to say thanks very much for the use of the Calypso breast pump, it's been fantastic. The pump is really simple to use, very portable and quiet. It has meant that I have been able to express milk for baby and her dad has been able to feed her so I can have a few hours rest or even nip out the shops by myself. I think it's a really good bonding experience for fathers to be able to feed their babies and at the same time give the mothers a much needed rest!
