Hi - I have an (almost) 8 week old DS and am keen to start baby massage. I live in the sticks so there are no classes I can join so wondered if anyone could recommend any books/video clips/websites? I googled it but was overwhelmed by the results and would like to hear any positive experiences of resources. Thanks in advance!

I've just this week been to a free taster session at the local Sure Start Children's Centre which I really enjoyed. She gave handouts at the end as well to carry on at home. It's not a full course in that it was just a couple of hours to show you how to do it at home but I really enjoyed it and so did DS. The centres are all over the country and most of the stuff they run is free because it's government funded. Worth a try?

The book the International Association of Baby Massage uses for training is this one: Infant Massage, a Handbook for Loving Parents.

The IABM website has some good tips on which oils to use too.

Enjoy!
