Week One: We will begin this series with infant massage. The first week we will cover strokes for legs, tummy, and chest. We will also learn specific strokes to help with colic and gas. We'll talk about the many benefits of infant massage and how you can use massage at home to further the bond with your newborn. 

Week Two: Continue to develop relationships with parents whilst learning about sleep! Get practical tips and information on baby sleep for 0-6 month olds with My Little Sleeper. Find out how to create the right sleep environment and what healthy sleep habits you can work on to develop your baby's sleep. Parents will have the opportunity to ask questions about sleep and share their experiences with the group. 

Week Three: To conclude this series, we will learn the strokes for arms, face and back. We will also talk about ideas and modifications as your child grows. We will have time to review and share experiences from our at home practice.
