Can anyone recommend baby massage resources?

Apologies for posting this in two sections but I wasn't sure where best it fitted!

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!

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.

I bought that book - it is a bit old fashioned but great. DD is 19 months now and we still love our massages. Enjoy x

Enjoy it! I did it with both my DSs and only stopped when they were nearly in their teens as they loved it so much. They are still lovely cuddly lads smile
