Infant/child massage

is a wonderful way to enhance bonding between parents and babies/children. It has been shown to improve Colic, help sooth irritable infants, improve infant/child sleep patterns, help organize and calm infant/child central nervous systems, improve infant/child digestion, and induce relaxation in both parent and infant/child. I have also found it to be an especially wonderful way for new fathers to spend quiet time with their babies.
