Baby Massage Steps First warm a few drops of Weleda Calendula Oil in your hands. For an all-over Body Massage Slide your hands from the shoulders down the arms. Gently rub the chest, belly, legs and feet, allowing your hands to make full contact with your baby and embrace the shape of his or her body. For the Chest and Belly Place both hands in the middle of the chest and make circular movements. Stroke upward toward the shoulders. Stroke down along the sides of the body and back to center. Make slow, clockwise movements on the belly. For Hands and Arms Move your hands from the wrists to the shoulders, gently squeezing. Slowly move your hands from the shoulders to the wrists, gently wringing. Take each hand and rub your thumbs from the center of the palm to the outside. Stroke from the ball of the thumb toward the finger tops so that the fingers spread themselves. For Feet and Legs Hold a small foot in one hand. Using the other hand, move from the ankle to the thigh, gently squeezing. Repeat with other leg. For each foot, stroke with the thumbs from the sole to the outside, then rub the sole with a flat hand from heel to toes. For Baby’s Back Side Starting at the shoulders, move down the back, bottom and legs toward the feet. Squeeze upward from the bottom and across the back, avoiding the spine. Lay one hand on your baby’s bottom where the legs begin. Stroke with the other hand from the shoulders along the back to the bottom. Gently squeeze the bottom together between your hands. Slightly lift the feet with one hand, and with the other hand stroke in one long movement from the shoulders to the feet. When the massage is finished, rest for a few minutes and enjoy the moment with your baby.
