Draw date Friday August 20th
This Month of August I am offering this wonderful Infant Massage giveaway pack .
To Enter just leave a comment stating You'd like Your name entered or email me privately if You like . This is a wonderful gift for the Mum to be or a Mum wishing to try something new ☺
I first learned the art of massage 29 yrs ago when my first born was 3 months old . One of my very first books on parenting was Loving Hands by Fredrick Leboyer . I was so excited and began this technique with my new young dd.
This art helps create that special bond between mother & child just as breastfeeding does. Our dd grew to love massage and as a young child it also became a practice at bedtimes to get this active spirited child to sleep we'd give her soothing back massage . This worked especially well also on long trips after a hard day of travel . Massage helps reconnect child to self , spirit & parent , to be calm within an unfamiliar environment .
Fredrick Leboyer is also author of Birth without Violence & my dh and I had the privilege to hear him speak in 1986 after the birth of our 2nd dd . Again we feel so blessed to have been exposed to such healthy lifestyle choices. ☺
Now as a Mum of 6 I can tell You , not all children like nor do they all enjoy massage ! So do not feel badly if You try it and it does not work out ☺
Some kids it is enough to cuddle and read a book . Our 2nd child who is the most calm patient child in the world absolutely squiggled & wiggled while receiving massage . Her brother next in line loved it . In fact it seems the more hyper the child's spirit in our family the more they enjoyed this experience . The point is to try with each child because if this is something which would benefit Your parent child relationship it would be a shame to miss out .
You may choose to have music while doing massage or just have silence or the sound of your own voice .
I always used warmed coconut oil as it seemed the most authentic to massage of Indian culture . I'm sure sunflower or safflower may be fine too . Always have a towel nearby as baby often releases the bladder ☺
I love to finger thru this book . I love the photos within , it is just a gorgeous book . I purchased the new pb copy for our dd when our first grandchild was born .I must say my hc is a treasure and the pb just not the same feel to it .
So this is why this giveaway is so very special ! I found a copy of the hc version ! Yes I did ! On one of our travels thru a small town we popped into the local thrift . It cost me all of 30cents !
This was a library version but no torn pages or anything it is in excellent shape !
Below are pics of the items within this pack . I do hope You enter Your name or that of someone You know who would like to try this out ☺
Thanks for stopping by
