Someone linked me to this video clip of a lady called Sonia Rachel and her bathing/massaging a new born. So beautiful it made me cry. I can't do links but I think it's on her website. Will check just in case.
My DS was very anti napping (or any sort of sleep really). When he was 9 months old we went to Centreparcs. I took him swimming and I went and stood in a very deep, warm pool. Whereupon he slept for 45 mins. I looked like a prune, but it was absolutely worth it. I wonder if it was being surrounded and supported by the water that did it?
