Baby Massage Overview

There are many reasons to invest some time in baby massage.  Studies have shown that massage can have a calming influence on your baby.  Your baby may sleep better, grow better, have less stress in life, all from massage.  I find it is a wonderful bonding time with my baby.  If you would like to add this to your baby's learning experiences look for the following books.  I have also listed web sites with massage information.  Enjoy!
