Take time out with your baby and if coming with your partner as a family. Enjoy these precious moments all while learning important new skills that will help aid your babies growth, digestive system and sleep.
We will use rhythmic stokes and gentle movement to massage your baby’s chest and stomach to help assist with stimulating digestion and reduce symptoms of colic. The colic relief routine can be a god send to help aid your baby in times of discomfort and distress. Many baby yoga moves help the digestive system and are a fun way to engage with baby whilst helping them.
Yes you really can help your baby relax and get more sleep! When a baby is massaged they release oxytocin, the feel good ‘love’ hormone which calms, soothes and promotes sleep. With each nurturing, loving stroke baby will feel more relaxed which can improve their sleep. Through the fun and entertaining engagement of baby yoga your baby will feel tired after! Babies that take good naps in the day will actually sleep better at night (and babies that sleep well at night have parents who get more sleep too!)
Use massage to relieve teething pain by applying your fingers to the outside of baby’s gums and soothing them. We use several techniques to help baby at this time whether your baby is new born or older they will experience teething pain at some point so use them to help when needed. Use reflexology to work into the gums as massage on the feet can bring many benefits with reflex points. By gently applying pressure to these areas you can help relieve discomfort.
Baby massage is therapeutic for both baby and parent and baby yoga provides a time to engage fully with baby as we focus on eye contact, voice (singing if you wish!) touch and movement. Through the joy of baby yoga parent relaxes too and the bond enhances. Its quite often there are baby smiles and giggles from our little one as we baby yoga.
