Exercising regularly, taking time to warm-up and cool down, stretching your calf muscles and drinking plenty of water will all help to reduce leg cramps.
When should I start massaging my baby?
Gentle, loving touch is a wonderful way to bond with your new baby. Your baby will tell you when she is ready for massage. For most healthy babies born at term, this is usually around the 2-4 week mark.
How old should my baby to attend an infant massage class?
We recommend waiting until feeding is well-established and you are feeling rested enough to enjoy attending a class. Please note that our classes are designed for pre-mobile babies.
What should I bring to class?
A blanket or towel for baby to lay on and your diaper bag. We supply mats, oil and handouts.
Can my partner/mom/MIL/nanny come to class?
We welcome up to two adults to attend our infant massage classes and workshops. There is no additional fee for the second adult.
I have twins! Can I attend an infant massage class?
Absolutely. We welcome and encourage you. You might find it easier to being a second adult but it is not mandatory. There is no additional fee for the second adult or baby.
“Melanie has such a welcoming personality and a great energy about her. During her classes we get a great work out while laughing and learning a lot. Every class is different and Melanie regularly shares new information. She always encourages us to work at our own rate and to listen to our bodies. Melanie makes working out fun!”
