Led by Rosie Slay
Livestreamed to the comfort of your home
Get to know your baby better through massage. This 1.5 hour workshop will give dads the tools and confidence they need to massage their babies to support their comfort and development.
Over the course of the workshop we’ll discuss the benefits of touch in general and massage in particular, and offer tips on establishing a regular routine at home.
You will learn more about your baby’s cues and developmental stages, and how different massage techniques can offer them relief from colic, teething and other growing pains.
You’ll work with your babies, giving them a full body massage throughout the session, learning along the way what they like, dislike and how to understand and respond to this. In the virtual company of other fathers you will share experience and advice on navigating this journey of parenthood.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED: 👶, something to sit on (a cushion or yoga block), a small towel, a baby blanket to put over the towel and any oil that you'd like to use for the massage. We recommend you use a cold pressed vegetable oil (grapeseed is good), or coconut/almond oil if that's not available.
