Baby Massage for Strengthening
Babies strengthen from the neck down. That's why lifting the head is the first to happen and standing on two feet is the last. We can build strength and encourage the natural physical developmental progression just by using a few gentle and fun techniques. Be guided by your baby here. Babies younger than four months will need more help and support around the neck. Hold younger ones more forward, allowing the head to hang forward. We just want to avoid the neck lagging behind, therefore straining the neck.

Baby Massage for Stretching
With small babies, after they are born you can see they often bring their limbs in towards their body. This is probably because of their position in the uterus (womb). With stretching massage, the aim is to gently encourage your baby to open up to the world from the more closed fetal position. 
 
Stretching those long limbs comfortably and calmly: arms, fingers, legs and toes. Apply gentle long strokes across the limbs. Feel the tight, more rigid muscles soften and give less resistance as you encourage this lovely lengthening of the limbs.

Baby Massage for Digestion
We can do some simple massage techniques to help our babies with any digestive issues. This might be colic, constipation, excessive wind, or tummy troubles in general. The aim is to create movement in your baby's middle, encouraging internal movement to keep the digestive system moving. Often these techniques can give instant relief. They're also a very important preventative measure so do them regularly for your baby to get the most from them.

Never underestimate the amount that is going on inside your baby's developing brain the whole time she's awake.  Sometimes your baby can become too over-stimulated and sometimes this can lead to a very tearful or fretful baby.  Tuning into your baby's nap and bedtimes by picking up on small signs can mean a much happier you and a much happier baby.
