- Timing – When to take?
Best during pregnancy or for parents with babies newborn through crawling (~10 mos). The earlier the better, as these techniques will help soothe your baby from day one.
PLEASE NOTE: NO BABY, AT ANY AGE, will predictably be quiet and alert AT CLASS TIME, for the FULL TIME. Don’t worry!
Parents who attend class without a baby or whose baby is not feeling receptive to massage during class will practice what they are learning on one of our dolls. You will receive detailed handouts to reinforce things you might only partially absorb while attending to your child’s needs.
