When Can I Perform Infant Massage?

When should I perform the Infant Massage?”  Ever since I started Infant Massage Moms are always asking me this question!  My answer is that it is up to you and your baby’s schedule.  But of course that is not enough so here is some more insight on my experiences.  Traditionally in India, the midwives perform daily infant massage;  they massage the baby, then give them a bath, the mother feeds them, and then they put them down to sleep.  The baby usually sleeps for 3-4 hours!!!  But no promises here!  I have used this model with both of my kids and have found it to work beautifully.  I would say depending on your baby’s schedule (and to help them sleep better) do this routine before their afternoon nap or before their nighttime slumber.
