Baby Massage


Age: From 0 month old

Materials:

Baby oil

Additional Information:

As I slowly regain my strength, I started the journal of recording Baby's natural routine, and trying to tweet it to fit ours. With J's, we started from Day 1, but the recovery from birth this time round is taking longer time due to birth complications.

A friend came by yesterday and shared about the baby massage she did for her daughter, when she was a baby - Thanks Jenny :-). I have totally forgotten when would be the right time to start baby massage. With my mum here to help that freed me from other tasks - thanks so much mum :-), I started the routine of baby massage today after the 10.30 am feed. Baby C liked it a lot, so that was a success :-)

I learned to say this rhyme from Baby Center in English and Mandarin (I did the translation below) as we go along:

Round and round x2,
Heart to hands,
Head to toes,
Not too fast,
Not to slow.

Turn the baby to lie on her tummy and say...

Round and round x2,
Back to hands,
Head to toes,
Not too fast,
Not too slow.

Chinese translation:

圆圈圈 x2
心到手,
头到脚,
不太快,
不太慢。

圆圈圈 x2
背到手,
头到脚,
不太快,
不太慢。
