It is through the power of touch far more than through sight and sound that the infant experiences the love and nurturing protection of the mother. Coddling, fondling, hugging, and simple holding are all vital ways in which in which parents physically establish emotional bonds with their babies. The concept of infant massage elaborates on the power of touch by using a wide variety of strokes and touches for stimulating the body mind and emotions of the infant that might not otherwise occur.

In Massaging Your Baby, Dr Schneider presents a comprehensive compendium of such touches and techniques replete with photos step-by-step instructions and explanations on why these techniques are beneficial.

  • Basic guidelines and materials to aid in the massage

  • The use of language and melody for enhancing the bonding experience
