Inside you’ll find • specific routines tailored to help relieve colic, fever, and chest and nasal congestion • easy-to-follow instructions and photographs demonstrating each step • new information on the benefits of skin-to-skin contact • instructions for premature infants and babies with special needs • lullabies, rhymes, and games to enhance the massage experience • a special chapter dedicated to fathers • compassionate advice for foster and adoptive parents Praise for Infant Massage “Speaking as a pediatrician, the best advice I can give you is to try the techniques described in this book.”–Stephen Berman, M.D., F.A.A.P., former president, American Academy of Pediatrics “What a brilliant way to love and nurture a child! The first connection between parent and child is physical, through the body; by using the techniques Vimala McClure has developed, your parental relationship will be off to a magnificent start.”—Judy Ford, author of Wonderful Ways to Love a Child
