Q&A: When Should I Start Infant Massage?

Infant Massage can be enjoyed by all babies from ages 6 weeks and up.   I would suggest that you start the Baby Tata routine at about 6 weeks of age and then continue with it until you feel that your baby has graduated from the traditional infant massage.  When you start at 6 weeks your little one will take a few weeks to get used to it.  After that they will recognize the massage routine and will be more than willing to give you their limbs.  If you start later, about 6 months and up (after they start rolling or crawling), it is more difficult for you to get them to lie down and enjoy the massage.  With continued practice however (and a ton of patience!) you can do a shorter massage routine and build up to the full baby massage routine.
